Papaya Salsa: Burritos with a twist

A couple of confessions to start. Firstly: I have been writing this post for 3 weeks now, somehow by leaving my job I became too busy to complete anything. Something about the impending new chapter in my life, entitled Never Too Old To Decrease The Salary And Increase The Joy, overtook every cell of my […]

Cannelloni Di Magro: Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni

This months Daring Kitchen Challenge provoked my fading memories of a life briefly lived in Italy. How incredible to tap back into the warmth of Tiziana’s Sicilian kitchen where I learn how to make pasta, with a strong flour milled mere kilometers away and eggs from the galina’s that roost outside our window, my flour covered hands […]

Marrickville Pork Roll: $3.50 ticket to heaven

Marrickville Pork Roll 236a Illawarra Rd Marrickville, 2204 You might remember reading about my Vietnamese eating fiesta – the Cabramatta Crawl – a few weeks ago, when Thang Ngo from Noodlies hosted a food tour of (you guessed it) Cabramatta. This tour took place during the last weeks of Noodlies search for Sydney’s Best Vietnamese […]

Beef Bourguignon: a rich and delicious homage to Julia Child

Our May 2012 Daring Cooks’ hostess was Fabi of fabsfood. Fabi challenged us to make Boeuf Bourguignon, a classic French stew originating from the Burgundy region of France. I didn’t use Bourgogne wine, so really this dish should be called Beef Cabernet Savingnon. But that doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. So we […]

Home-made brunch time: vege sausage & egg on a spinach leaf & capsicum salad

Brunch is definitely a favorite pastime of mine come Saturday and Sunday mornings, however this compulsion is simultaneously expanding the waste line (as much as I tell myself that ordering the granola is a good idea somehow I always end up eating a big breakfast) and depleting the bank account. I’m on a mission to flip the balance, that’s where this snazzy recipe […]

Grounds review alexandria

The Grounds of Alexandria: go on, all the cool kids are doin’ it!

Every bit as cool as expected, the Grounds serves up fantastic food with a side of eco-charm, and a swing set. No wonder its full to the brim with well healed young families and 4WD prams. For us car-less ruffians traversing to the Grounds is an investment in itself: you’ll find it sprawled amongst the […]

Green Papaya Salad Served in Betal Leaves: inspired by Longrain Sydney

Longrain Sydney is currently my happy place, and for me the pinnacle of the Longrain experience are their Betal Leaves. They are served encasing smoked trout for the meat eaters and for the vegetarians they put together a delicious green papaya and mango salad which is full of crunch, zing and attitude. A few weeks […]

Fig and Gorgonzola and Prosciutto

Fig Bites with Gorgonzola Piccante and Australian Prosciutto

  I’ve had a jam-packed couple of weeks filled with 6 course meals, gourmet butchering demonstrations and Vietnamese food tours. Feeling as as close to being foodied-out as I get, I listlessly wonder the aisles of Harris Farms, searching amongst the produce. My stomach tells me I want something home-cooked, healthy and forkalicious, my mind tells me […]

D Vine Wine Bar: Bondi

D Wine Gill & Wine Bar Address: 206 Bondi Rd, Bondi NSW 2026 Phone: (02) 9369 2425 There’s been a bit of noise surrounding Bondi’s classy new kid on the block, D Vine wine bar. Not one to miss out on a new food experience, I rally the troops for an afternoon of wine and […]

Spencer Guthrie 399 King Street, Newtown, 2042 Always ones to sniff out a new restaurant, we try this venue about 5 weeks after it opens.

Cabramatta Food Tour thanks to Noodlies #cabracrawl

Thang from Noodlies ran a competition recently for food bloggers to accompany him on a food tour of Cabramatta. My charm and wit won me a spot (winners were obviously chosen at random) and saw me venturing west. Cabra style. Admittedly a bit of a novice when it comes to Vietnamese food, I have walked […]
