Monthly Archive for June, 2010

Regular readers will know that both Saskia and I are on a mission to try to find ways of making do and using the food we have rather than throwing things out (check out Saskia’s crumble and her banana cake and my carrot cake). In this vein I was at work one day pondering the random collection […]

  The Daring Bakers’ challenge for June was chocolate pavlova. We decided to go a little off track this month and make a dish using chocolate and meringue, but – let’s be honest – this really isn’t a pavlova at all! This chocolate-coffee-meringue cake was made by my grandma throughout my childhood and it starred […]

  I understand that not everyone likes banana. I encourage those people to stop reading now (yes, I mean you S & P). For the banana lovers, this recipe is so easy and tasty that it is absolutely ridiculous. I read about it ages ago on ‘where’s the beef’ (here for the regular version,  here […]

On the way to Taggerty we stopped in at Innocent Bystanderin Healesville for dinner. Innocent Bystander is a restaurant/winery/cellar door for Innocent Bystander and Giant Steps. It is a cavernous, dimly lit space (terrible for food photography!). As a plus, it has a foosball table in the centre of the restaurant, so while the boys got […]

A little while back, I wrote a post about new cafe EARL Canteen. Despite its locale at the other end of the city from my workplace, since then I have had several lunches there – including the much discussed pork belly sandwich that it seems everyone has been talking about (Jess dubbed it the ‘sex’ […]

       I absolutely love using preserved lemons in my cooking. I use them in Middle Eastern recipes such as tagine and pilaf,  but also to give a flavour lift to other dishes such as risotto and pasta or as a stuffing for chicken or lamb. My only issue is that I tend to go through the preserved lemons quickly and given […]

I really like Mart 130. Mart is situated on a tram line at stop 130 (hence the anagram – Mart) it has a quirkily decorated dining room, with a beautiful covered balcony at the back. Food is great, service is friendly. My only qualms are that it isn’t located near me and it is too […]

Emily and I love being part of the Daring Kitchen community, though admittedly, they sometimes throw us some curve balls. This month, we decided to throw one right back! The challenge for June was to make pâté and bread. Emily and I are pretty open minded, I like to think, but I don’t eat liver […]

Mushroom soup

A few years ago my workmate S had all the girls in our team over for a Sunday lunch. I remember that there was a lot of gossiping and a lot of wine. There was a lot of food too, but the only thing I remember was the delicious mushroom soup, which was S’s mother’s […]
