Garlic Chicken Pasta

 This is a recipe I recreated from a simple pasta dish we had in Italy.  Phoebe loved it so much that she demanded I make it when we got back home.  My version is quick and easy to make but utterly delicious – as is all good Italian food. All you need is some chicken, pasta, garlic, butter, extra virgin olive oil and some parsley (or other herb).  For the calorie conscious you can reduce[…]

 The second dish from my tasting menu.  “The Forest floor” is the concept for this dish which consists of confit partridge leg, partridge pate, candied rosemary, beetroot jelly, a porcini and walnut soil and a moss like side salad.  I’ve added an additional bit of presentation by serving it on a banana leaf.  This dish turned out to be one of the favourites of the night or at least it had one of the favourite[…]

 I’ll be honest, I had my doubts that a proper gluten-free pork pie could be done.  I don’t really do pies and I’d never used a hotwater crust so the thought of doing a gluten-free one seemed like a step too far.  But I was asked to try it out and I figured the worst that could happen is that the crust ends up as little more than a fancy way to hold a pork pie filling. […]

 I’ve always loved the idea of making a dessert burger.  I like making food a little whimsical and I love burgers so when my work’s cake club came around again (I made cookies last time) a dessert burger seemed like a pretty logical next step.  I figured someone, somewhere would have tried it but a quick search on google didn’t come up with much.  In fact, the only good example of a dessert burger I[…]

 I got a cookbook on coriander for my secret santa gift at work.  My “santa” knew I wasn’t the biggest fan of coriander but also knew that I liked to cook and ran this site… so it was a smart choice.  I’ve taken it as a challenge.  I don’t hate coriander, I just find people dump large quantities of the stuff on curries or other dishes without much thought, large amounts of coriander end up tasting like[…]

 I don’t really do much baking… I’m a terrible baker but cookies are so easy even I can’t make a mess of them.  My baking skills are legendary, the “easy” victoria sponge that failed to rise, my brownies that ended up more blackies than brownies (I blame my inconsistent oven) and other baking misadventures. Now that I have a thermomix I’ve started experimenting more and trying to do a little more baking.  White loaves have[…]
