Make sure the prawns you throw on the barbie are up to scratch.
Here’s what to do with those male flowers – you know the ones that don’t produce a vegetable, just a flower. Stuff them with goodness, then stuff them in (your mouth!!!).
Make this a ‘go to’ for those times when you want something super tasty, but easy to prepare, to serve as a nibble with drinks.
Salty, sweet, tangy and creamy, but not rich … dunk away and feel good about it!
A little blob of yoghurt and mint leaf keeps the fritter flavour clean and bright. You’ll be back for more!
A spectacular tumble of corn and avocado … just thinking about it makes me go want to eat it all over again.
Oh, soft, warm and smelling like heaven … slices of asparagus frittata stuffed between soft or crunchy bread rolls is delicious.
Looking for something easy enough to do mid-week that packs plenty of flavour? Here you go, pork balls with ginger, lime, lemongrass and a smattering of red chilli.

Not what you’re expecting? Smoked fish and nectarines? How do you know what it’s like until you try it: Summer in a mouthful!
Last night I was having Floridita’s flashbacks (one of my Wellington haunts) hankering for the smoked mackerel hash, but as I won’t be back in the capital for awhile I had to whip up a version to stave off the yearning. I was way naughtier than Floridita’s … I didn’t poach my egg, I fried it in softly sizzling butter. Mmmmm.
Yeah, grey day, soup, Bob and Noble, just going to rock it.
Tarts topped with tangy goat’s cheese and asparagus, just so NOW!
Custom make your own salad in a bowl using crisp greens and fresh herbs as a base.
Gazpacho is one of the glories of summer – tip it over avocados, dot with olives & basil, sprinkle with toasted cumin and m’whaaaaaaa! Delicious.
Ilaria’s magic balls! Fluffy golden brown, dissolve in your mouth = gotta have!
This is good with linguine (flat slim noodles) but I like the way small pieces of asparagus and capers get trapped inside tubes of pasta so you get a double whammy in a mouthful!
Mmmm. If you love eggs, and you love asparagus, it’s time to dunk!
Sunday afternoon laid-back salad. Yee-haw!
Yeah, go on, put it all together – avocado crema, pulled pork, mango salad with dirty chipotle dressing and a good dollop of adobo! Stick it in a bun or roll it in a soft puffy tortilla. It’s mighty fine either way. Get the recipes here and assemble your own creations: Black Bean & Orange […]
Stuff it into tacos, dollop with hot stuff and away you go.
All your favourites in one mouthful!
Pale and creamy, perfect for dolloping, dipping or squiggling!
