The Best Apple Crumble

Its been so long since I posted!! I know, I know – I still have to post about Bennelong AND Japan as well…and for those of you who don’t follow my other social media outlets – I got engaged in Japan! Wearing a rock on my finger has taken some getting used to, but with…

Fig & Hazelnut Tart, and a new Noritake Dinner Set from Everten

I had the pleasure of recently catching up with my friend Kulinary Adventures of Kath, when she invited me to attend The School of Life’s talk at the Enmore Theatre with special guest Nigella Lawson. If – like me  you have never heard of The School of Life, it’s a global organisation dedicated to developing emotional intelligence;…

Fig & Persimmon Almond Yoghurt Cake

When I meet someone new and they discover that I practice as a solicitor, the usual question that will usually come up in conversation is: “What made you want to do law?” My running joke is that I thought at the time that law looked cool thanks to that iconic movie, Legally Blonde – which always gets…

Rhubarb, Mascarpone & Hazelnut Tarts

I love the zoo. From being taken to Sydney’s Taronga Zoo as a five year old by The Sister to wandering around Singapore Zoo on my own at the end of last year, I’m always held captivated by the animals. Seeing the giraffes with their gracefully arched necks delicately step around one another to feed,…

Roast Vegetable Frittata

Is there anything more homely in winter than roast vegetables? I had one lone capsicum left over after my Ratatouille, as well as a bit of pumpkin from my Roast Pumpkin Ravioli and so I decided to make the most of it and make a quick frittata one Sunday lunch. A frittata is really like…

Roast Pumpkin Ravioli

So the long title for this recipe is ‘Roast Pumpkin & Ricotta Ravioli with Burnt Butter Sage Sauce’ but to keep things looking pretty and formatted nicely on the home page I’ve dubbed it simply ‘Roast Pumpkin Ravioli.’ However calling it merely ‘Roast Pumpkin Ravioli’ doesn’t seem to do this dish full justice. This is…

Mushroom, Quinoa & Thyme Risotto

“Have you made risotto before?” (Awkward cough) “Errrrr…from a packet.” HEY it’s called Star Risotto and The Sister even knows Italians who use it, okay? But sure, I’m a food blogger and foodie and so I should know how to make risotto. I’ve made paella before and surely it can’t be much harder than that,…

Apple & Blueberry Shortcake Pie

This recipe is from taste.com.au, sourced from Good Taste magazine. I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for quite some time, and with the influx of fresh apples into local supermarkets as the weather begins to cool, I found an opportunity to make it one afternoon. Sadly, with the end of daylight saving it meant that by baking later…

Danish Apple Cake + Blog Turns 1!

As the nights become longer and darker, and the air becomes crisper, I tend to find solace in spending more time in the kitchen; absorbing the sweet-scented heat from the toasty oven or inhaling savoury aromas from plumes of steaming pots. While I’m always sad when the stone fruits of summer gradually fade, there is always…
