Kuku sabzi, the Persian omelette
Thank the world that Middle Eastern food is starting to push its way in front of the monotonous burger and chicken wing takeaways that occupy every main street in the land. I'm not talking about...
Bring back the quintessential Aussie burger
You may have noticed that as the years go by, food is changing. The advent of processed food has only been around for roughly 75 years a mere speck of sand in the hourglass of food history....
Chocolate, coconut and banana bread
Good old, ubiquitous banana bread. It's on every cafe menu from Toorak to Townsville and like most popular items, you can get some stellar ones and some truly diabolical ones. The price too, isn't...
Authentic fried rice
I'm going to attempt to unravel the myth of cooking fried rice for you. Because we all know that the fried rice you get from the local take away can never be recreated at home. Or can it?
Australia Day prawn tacos
People think Mexican food screams chilli and spice, tears rolling down your face and the after effects that we won't mention here but it doesn't have to be that way, trust me.
You may already know what I am about to tell you, but feel free to share it with anyone you feel may benefit saganaki is not cheese.
There is a lot to be said for side dishes, especially those of the canned variety. I once sat through an entire Christmas that had come from a can turkey included. There are some tinned vegies...
Classic bloody mary
When my mum and I lived together alone for many years, a strong Christmas tradition was to have bloody marys on waking, with caviar and Jatz crackers. It was the height of luxury at our place. We...
Middle Eastern pizza (lahmajun)
The power of social media can be a wonderful thing sometimes. As much as I love thumbing through my cookbooks for creative ideas, sites such as Pinterest and Instagram are where I gain a lot of...
Zucchini and feta fritters
There is a negative side to mastering a dish to near perfection. This is what has happened to me with zucchini fritters.
The best chocolate chip cookies
You've seen my other cookie recipes, yes? And while they are delicious, each and every one of them, forget them this instant. I have found the definitive chocolate cookie recipe.
French onion tart
I didn't think too much of Nice when I visited a while back, to be honest. Sure it's nice driving along the coast, and it does look like a 1950s film set, but it just lacked something. It's not until...
Middle Eastern-style spring salad
There's a game I play every month called fridge bingo. Its heaps of fun and is best played the day before pay day. Have you played? The rules are simple. Open your fridge door, stare at all the...
Jamaican jerk chicken
One of my favourite jerk chicken recipes comes from way-too-smiley chef Ainsley Harriott, the tall prankster who dominated British TV for much of the late '90s. This recipe isn't quite it, but it's...
It's oyster season! This makes my heart sing as I am a serious lover of the bivalve. I will drive for hundreds of miles to get a taste of the freshest oysters I can find but because they are such a...
Ham hock toastie
You can keep your macaroni cheeses and your chicken soups. The ultimate comfort food train has just pulled into the station. Behold the toasted sandwich. Across the country chefs are slicing bread...
How to make ricotta cheese
Here's the thing, you can go to the supermarket after work, possibly pluck the 001 ticket from the deli counter and stand for only 1 minute before the attendant notices you. You can buy a kilo of...
Chilli blue swimmer crabs
Let's not kid ourselves that crustaceans, in particular crab, are the daintiest things to eat (unless some poor sucker before you has had the job of cleaning them). Contending with all those legs,...
Spicy whole roasted cauliflower
Cauliflower loves you, it always has, even when it was a grey mulch forlornly lying next to your Sunday roast. Many people shun brassica vegetables. It is more than likely they've thoroughly...
