Soy and Calamansi Glazed Ham

This Soy and Calamansi Glazed Ham would be the most perfect centrepiece for Christmas lunch this year. The glaze is made with Asian-inspired flavours and glistens over the ham. Think fresh kaffir lime leaves, ginger, star anise, ginger and soy with the lovely flavour of calamansi. This recipe is absolutely phenomenal and I can vouch that it’s a total crowd … Read More

Veal and Chorizo Sausage Roll

A long time ago, in (what feels like) a galaxy far, far away, I was a designer for a hospitality group in Sydney. My favourite venue was Gazebo Wine Garden in Elizabeth Bay. I loved the vibe and almost everything on the menu was phenomenal. There were a few dishes that I have always wanted to try my hand at … Read More

One Pot Chunky Chicken Risoni Soup

During last year’s first lockdown when there were grocery shortages aplenty, I was really surprised that there was always Orzo in stock. Here in Australia, it’s usually called Risoni, but it’s the same short cut pasta, the size and shape of a large grain of rice. The entire pasta aisle was wiped bare except for boxes and packets of risoni … Read More

Simple Dinners 18 / Pumpkin Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

I hope you enjoy this round up of cheesy recipes from some of … Read More

Marmalade and Whisky Glazed Turkey

The other day someone called me a ‘Domestic Goddess’. I was half thrilled and half horrified. While I love baking and like to think I’m a passable hostess, there’s currently a week’s worth of clothes on my floor at the moment (shhh!) and I’d almost rather be subjected to Survivor-like challenges than do the dusting. Nigella and Martha make it … Read More

Pork, Apple and Cider Pie
