FESTIVE POTATO SALAD W/ ASPARAGUS, SMOKED FISH & POMEGRANATE

It’s December! Here’s a surprisingly easy one for the Christmas table – my take on the ever-popular pavlova wreath doing the rounds this season. Mum is obsessed with growing new potatoes each season just in time for Christmas, she slathers them in butter with…

POSH DOGS W/ WATERCRESS & BASIL CHIMICHURRI & MUSTARD MAYO

BBQ season in our household is officially underway! We had a false start last weekend, promising our daughter Gwynnie her first BBQ of the season only to be huddled inside by 5pm. Needless to say we had much better success this Sunday. I’ve partnered…

GIN & LEMON NO-CHURN ICE-CREAM W/ GIN & TONIC CRUMBS

Here’s a show-stopping five minute ice-cream for your next dinner party. Condensed milk is the magic ingredient when making no-churn ice cream, mixed with whipped cream and any flavour you like will result in a creamy, smooth and not at all icy texture. Here…

SLOW GREEK LAMB WITH KALAMATAS & FETA

I know we’re all hanging out for warmer spring weather so apologies for serving up a slow lamb dish! I actually made this a few weeks back for the rugby and with the forecast not looking too flash this weekend I think we could…

TOKYO HUMMUS

During a recent (child-free!) holiday to Singapore we were lucky enough to eat out most nights. One evening our friend Ollie took us to a fabulous Japanese eatery the Neon Pigeon where we ordered the silkiest hummus made with edamame beans. I have no…

There aren’t many better ways to start the day than with a Black Forest Smoothie. Chocolate, berries and banana (skin and all) are combined to make one deliciously thick,  creamy and healthy smoothie. I’ve partnered with Dole New Zealand  and snuck in banana peel…

LEMON, COCONUT & FAIRY FLOSS CELEBRATION CAKE

Here’s a wee pink number I recently made for my niece’s third birthday. I also made it for mum’s 70th (sans the floss) and boy was it a hit. It’s so simple, everything is just whizzed together in a food processor. I’ve adapted it from…

LAMB, MINT & ALMOND KÖFTE WITH SMOKEY ALMOND YOGHURT

You’ll have guests coming back for thirds when serving up these beauties. These simple, richly spiced little morsels can be whipped together in 15 minutes but taste rather fancy. The subtly spiced almond yoghurt truly takes them to the next level. I make a batch…

THE ULTIMATE COCONUT ROUGH BANANA BREAD (GF,DF)

This is the best banana loaf I’ve made hands down – gluten-free or regular. I make it every week (sometimes twice!) for lunchboxes and mid-afternoon snacks. Packed with coconut, it’s super moist, with the lightness of 4 eggs and almond meal. Although it’s not overly sweet, it doesn’t…
