We all need a little more beans sometimes. These little superfoods have basically everything going for them. Most beans are full of all the good stuff, such as protein, iron, fibre and complex carbs. They’re also cheap and – when cooked with love – downright delicious. All in all, they make me happy. I’ve been […]

A few months ago, I found myself in Unawatuna on the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka. Unawatuna is a beachside town that ticks all the boxes: sun, sand, surf, cheesy bars, and – of course – tasty food. One day, some like minded food-loving friends and I decided to forgoe the beach and learn some of the […]

A few months ago I was feeling pretty rough.  After a few doctor visits and several needle jabs, I discovered that my iron levels were severely lacking. Ever since then, I’ve been trying to incorporate more iron into my diet. A friend of mine makes these fab little tahini balls which are packed full of iron […]

Happy Melbourne Cup day! It makes me so happy that we Melburnians get an annual leave day thanks to a horse race! While you would think Spring Racing is about the horses, really its about frocks, food and drink. Race day food needs to be portable, delicious and preferably easy on the cook. Last year […]

  A month or two ago, Mr M attended a Cath Claringbold cooking class at the Essential Ingredient. My urgings to write a guest post on the experience have fallen on somewhat deaf ears.

I imagine that most food bloggers have their ‘Julie and Julia’ fantasy cookbook: the one cookbook from which you would love to cook every single recipe. Mine is David Thompson’s Thai Food. At 673 pages, this would certainly be quite the challenge. It’s such an incredible book; the detail about Thai food and how it […]

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 […]

       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 […]

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 […]
