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…

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…

CAULIFLOWER & CUMIN FRITTERS WITH A POACHED EGG

My husband Blair is the best fritter maker in our little household (at least that what I tell him to keep ’em coming). We devoured these Saturday morning to soak up a birthday evening of overindulgence. We’ve been making them for years and adapted them…

QUICK SUSHI BOWL WITH BROWN RICE & BLACK SESAME TUNA

Sushi bowls are my answer to an easy lunch or dinner that’ll have everyone think you’ve been slaving away for hours. My husband said this is his favourite meal of all time (of course anything would be with Kewpie mayonnaise!). We have a version of…

CHARRED CHICKEN WITH KUMARA, BLOOD ORANGE & GOAT’S CHEESE

Although I’m hesitant to support imported produce I can’t bring myself to go past the abundance of Californian blood oranges in stores at the moment. With their meaty raspberry colour and flavour they’re like a slightly less acidic orange with a kick, which makes…

BLACKENED HAPUKA BURGERS WITH SMOKED PAPRIKA MAYO

It’s amazing how some simple spices, a skillet, and fresh meaty fish can produce such flavour. These blackened Hapuka burgers with smoked paprika mayo are a great Friday night treat and best of all they’re super quick and easy to make. Serve on salad for low…

COURGETTE, CARROT & CHICKPEA FLOUR PANCAKES WITH LABNEH

Happy Valentines Day! These chickpea flour pancakes, also known as Socca are popular street food in Nice, in the South of France. I’ve turned them into a hearty meal by adding a pile of veges and labneh. They’d also be delicious with a fried…
