Gluten Free Whole Orange Cake

There is a very thin line between a perfectly baked whole orange cake and a soggy citrus mess. And there are two very distinct sets of people on both sides of that line. The ones who enjoy a good pudding like cake that can only be scooped up with a dessert fork or those who like a moist cake with a delicate crumb (like me!). Whole orange cakes are usually baked in slabs, because there is no way you could un mould one of these from a bundt pa... Read More >>

Vegan Mushroom Pesto Sandwich

Mushrooms are a constant fixture in my fridge. I have always loved mushrooms for their umami flavour and their ability to cook instantly. In fact, if mushrooms are super fresh (like at our local markets), I have been known to eat them raw on my way back home from loading my baskets with fresh produce. A fresh raw mushroom is a delightful thing, meaty and crisp and incredibly sweet! Now I buy a few bags of tiny button mushrooms (tiny white one... Read More >>
Gluten Free Lemon And Coconut Cake - Cook Republic

Gluten Free Almond Coconut Cake

A few years ago when I was doing food photography and styling workshops, a gluten free cake I adapted from Belinda Jeffery's Mix & Bake cookbook (one of my favourite baking cookbooks) was a staple at morning tea. A simple almond and coconut cake that I tweaked to be just sweet enough with a generous lashing of lemon. It was so wildly popular at all my workshops that I would get emails requesting the recipe. I always sent everyone a pho... Read More >>

Fig Ginger And Pecan Crumble - Cook Republic

Fig Ginger And Pecan Crumble

A few years ago I had this insane fig crumble at a winter market here in Sydney. It was figgy as was expected but had an incredible warmth that poured down my throat right down to my belly. After reading the ingredient list on the pack, I realised that it had ginger in it. Of course, I wanted to try making it at home (you do that too, don't you?). I wanted that molten winter warming feeling spreading through me as I sat on the couch at night ... Read More >>
Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Harissa Chickpeas - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Harissa Chickpeas

Are you a sweet potato person? What I am asking is that when you go to a restaurant, do you look at the menu and if you spot sweet potato then that is the dish you order? Oh Yes! Me too! Sadly most cafes around here only offer sweet potato wedges (where is your sense of adventure chefs?) which I eventually always end up ordering. Cannot resist roasted sweet potato! But I am also a cauliflower, mushroom, avocado, chickpea, spinach person. If a d... Read More >>
