Pineapple Coconut Loaf
Pineapple Coconut Loaf

Did you know that pineapple fruitcake was flown on Apollo 11 into space and back to earth and that very slice now sits at the Smithsonian, probably in a glass case? If I was on that mission, I don't think any slice would have made it back to earth. Especially if it...

Broccoli Soup With Cashew Cream
Broccoli Soup With Cashew Cream

I find that vegetables are a lot like people. Some are ready to be your friend the minute you meet them while some need a nice conversation or two to warm up to you while some need a whole lot of cajoling and tender loving care to let down their guard and allow their...

Flourless Chocolate Cake
Flourless Chocolate Cake

A good flourless chocolate cake is molten and rich on the inside while the outside is held up by a thin baked facade of chocolate. A cracked sinking crater on top is a testament to that perfect ballooning and collapsing of the egg and chocolate rich batter. It is a no...

Peach Grape And Thyme Galette
Peach Grape And Thyme Galette

I love the wildness that a galette brings to the dessert table. A tiny bit messy and a whole lot rustic, it is the free spirited child of a pie. One of the main advantages of a galette (which is essentially a freeform pie) over an actual old-fashioned pie is that you...

Turmeric Daal
Turmeric Daal

We eat daal once a week, sometimes twice or even thrice (when I am feeling especially lazy). I have cooked at least fifty different kinds of daal on thousands of occasions. But for some inexplainable reason, I don't have a single daal recipe on the blog. None. So this...

Brussels Sprouts And Zucchini Fritters
Brussels Sprouts And Zucchini Fritters

In our home, a savoury fritter packed with vegetables, herbs and egg is one of the quickest back up meals I cook when I am devoid of time or energy. It all started with a simple corn fritter decades ago. From there it evolved to a corn and zucchini fritter and then...

Watermelon Grilled Cheese Pizza
Watermelon Grilled Cheese Pizza

Watermelon is the essence of summer. Bright, juicy, sweet and cooling - it is the whole enchilada. The quickest way to eat it would be to slice it into giant wedges and go to town on the red flesh as juice streams down your elbows. But we are humans and we love to...

Iced Cardamom Coffee
Iced Cardamom Coffee

Happy New Year folks! What a scorcher it has been over the past few days here in Sydney. With temperatures soaring during peak summer, a much needed afternoon cup of coffee may only wake you up but not necessarily cool you down. And that is why my dear friends, the...
