   A while ago, Saskia posted a recipe for gobi dhal from a favourite family cookbook, Indian Cooking by Khalid Aziz (circa 1983). As Saskia mentioned, the book isn’t fancy but it certainly contains some fantastic recipes. This vegetable curry is based on a recipe from the same book, though I tend to take a very loose […]

As we come to the end of the season for tomatoes in Australia, I thought that this recipe from Ottolenghi’s Plenty would be a lovely way to show them off. This salad also ticked a few more boxes, including Saskia’s beloved theory of ‘combining for protein‘. It was also a nice, substantial salad which we […]

  Sandwiches can be the best of things and the worst of things. For me, the word ‘sandwich’ still conjures up an image of tomato slices and Kraft singles stuck between soggy Tip Top slices. I would have had one of those pretty much every day of my school life. Bleugh! It doesn’t have to […]

Last week, I attended Guy Mirabella’s cooking class at The Essential Ingredient. I trawled through the long list of classes for weeks before deciding this was the one for me.

Last Tuesday, my little family had Emily and her husband (my brother) and my other brother over for dinner. My dad decided to make a meaty cannelloni, which sadly excluded me from the mains.

In case you weren’t tipped off by last week’s k-mart catalogue shouting ‘last minute gifts for mum‘, the Sunday just past was Mothers’ Day. We decided to celebrate by having a big family feast, cooked by the cousins for the mothers. My favourite dish of the day was wild mushroom and shallot tarts. This was […]

The April Daring Cook’s challenge was a Brunswick stew. According to our reliable old friend Wikipedia,  this stew originates from the Southern states of the USA, though both the Georgians and Virginians claim it as their own. Traditionally, Brunswick stew is made with rabbit or squirrel but today, more common meats like chicken or pork […]

I’m pretty sure that I have Seasonal Affective Disorder. As the days get darker, so does my mood. Last weekend’s freakish hailstorm not only left my car a little dimpled, but it reminded me that Summer was, most definitely, over. In an effort to alleviate my impending gloominess, a few years ago at about this […]

Late last year, I discovered that I did not have enough (complete) protein in my diet, and so I resolved to make an effort to ‘combine for protein‘. Among my newly created complete-protein meals is this: Steamed silken tofu with buckwheat noodles. This simple little dish is based on a Kylie Kwong recipe in Simple […]
