Massaman Curry

This is a delicious, mild curry that my whole family enjoy. Although having said that I did ramp up the heat last time I made it, and while it was a little too hot for the kids, it was still fairly mild. All the flavour punch comes from the curry paste, so if you have ...

Soy & Lime Sashimi Tuna

Good quality sashimi is, in my humble opinion, an exquisite dining experience. It’s certainly not for everyone, and ten or so years ago I would have run in horror from such an offering. But faced with some beautiful looking Sashimi grade tuna at my local fishmonger the other day along with an unseasonably warm Winters ...

Potato Salad

As a child, no barbecue was complete without potato salad. Boiled, peeled, sliced potatoes, dressed with some finely chopped red onion and a wine vinaigrette. I loved potatoes but I didn’t love those potato salads. Fast forward a decade or two, and I still don’t love that potato salad. So this here is my version. ...

Lemon Tart

This is an all time classic, and as someone who loves anything lemony it’s one dessert I can never say no to. The pastry is a classic shortcrust which you can find HERE. You could also use a sweet shortcrust pastry. I have made mini tarts here, you could also choose to make one large ...

To Share Or Not To Share?

Turn It Up, Please

Ah, so much musical excitement round these parts lately! After already seeing Neil Young, Dinosaur Jr, Wilco, The Beasts Of Bourbon, AND Iggy And The Stooges so far this year, the last couple of weeks have added even more excellent shows to the calender. First up tonight we are super excited to see Aussie band ...

Duck Ragu

I can’t believe I have not shared this recipe yet, considering how often we have it. Paired with homemade pasta (usually pappardelle) this is one of our favourite dinners. After trying this it’s hard to go back to using any other meat for a ragu, it’s that good. Ingredients: A whole duck, about 2 kg ...

Leek & Potato Soup

As the Sydney winter starts to bite we find ourselves turning more and more to  the comfort that can only be found in a deep bowl of steaming hot goodness. There are as many ideas for soups as there are vegetables available. This is one we enjoy every winter, and is my Husband’s own recipe. ...
