Flaky filo, tangy apples, walnuts and cinnamon.
Mmm mmm. Chicken in filo. Creamy filling, crunchy golden filo. That hits the spot.
My mother’s nose-tinglingly fresh mint sauce with a vinegary bite was legendary in our house.
This pushes all the buttons: cheesy, crusty, deeply satisfying and so very delicious.
Juicy lamb roast to share with friends.
Simple and sublime.
Leftovers? Think squashed broccoli, peas and spuds, with shredded brisket … in a FRY-UP!!! (Yep, 3 exclamation marks required.)
Polenta may have humble origins, being served as a type of gruel back in the day, but just look at it now!
Well, who would have thought that a head of broccoli and a can of beans could produce such an amazing bowl of comfort food. Add a fried egg, sizzled sage leaves and a shower of parmesan and you’ll just about wet your pants with excitement. HaHa. Truly. Well maybe not … Damned delicious anyway. So, plan an all vege meal any night soon.
Smoky paprika, pimiento-stuffed olives, mandarins, fennel seeds … all you need is cauliflower!
An exotic fruity perfume, sweet & tangy taste and a topping of oats, coconut & Brazil nuts. What are you waiting for!
Feijoas are right show-offs. Stick one in a fruit bowl to ripen and it’ll soon fill the room with its heady, tropical scents of banana, sweet strawberry, ripe pineapple and guava. The creamy-coloured flesh, apart from the jellied seeds, is granular like a pear in some varieties, smoother in others. Feijoas ripen from the inside […]
Broccoli, garlic and olive oil is pretty good together, but throw in some parmesan and BAM! An absolute knockout.
Little squares of golden buttery meat with loads of garlic and a smidgin of chilli brings a smile on a cold day. Try it.
Buttery, flaky, crisp … well made pastry is irresistible.
Open your mouth, pop one in, scrunch it around and swallow. Delizioso!
A shower of parmesan is going to improve most things. Pumpkin & parmesan? Mmm…
Chop chop … get a decent knife and use a steady chopping board.
Autumn – or fall in the northern hemisphere – is definitely with us here in New Zealand. Sun, showers, more sun, a good drenching, then sun-showers, fast-paced clouds and swirling mist, and on it goes. I’ve still got tomatoes growing, and chillies and capsicums, though everything is looking tired and ready to give up. Lettuces, […]
Heres how to make a bunch of sausages go a long way.
Bubble & Squeak … What a name!
No messing with this baby: slurp, dribble and enjoy the burn.
Bubble it away, but don’t let it catch on the bottom of the pot!
Dip, dunk, off you go …
Nope. There’s no hash in these, no hemp either. Just loads of herbs, good old-fashioned spuds and tasty hot-smoked salmon.
Fig time! Get ye to a fig tree.
