Warm evenings, chilled wine, eating outdoors; this colourful and aromatic tomato salad becomes a regular feature at our barbecues when the tomatoes are at their best. It takes little time and effort to rustle up but its success depends on the ripeness and flavour of the tomatoes so choose whatever selection you can get. Read More
This is a speedy, super easy lemon slice recipe from BBC Good Food which uses ground rice in the base resulting in a noticeable crunchiness. I have tweaked the recipe a little to suit my taste. I’ve used salted butter and reduced the sugar for both the base and the pudding top to make the lemon slice extra sharp. I took care not to over cook the lemon top so it is just set and has a smooth velvety texture. Perfect afternoon treat! Read More
We are still working through the wonderful limes given to us by a friend. As I was juicing the limes to make lime sorbet this morning, the zesty smell remind me of shauk dhi, a type of citrus found in Burma. I am particularly fond of shauk dhi thote which is a salty, sour and spicy relish. A perfect side dish to balance the richness of coconut-based curries or add freshness to otherwise ordinary fried rice. Read More
There is a bowlful of passionfruit in the kitchen which came from our friend’s tree in western Sydney. They are greenish yellow and the size of a small orange. Over the course of the past couple of weeks, they have slowly turned pale yellow all-over, crinkly-skinned and filled the kitchen with the exotic smell of ripening passionfruit. Read More
I think this is a great way to eat semolina, rich and moist in the middle and crunchy on top. It always goes down well at the end of a meal with a splash of cream.
This is my favourite pork dish, robust in flavour and the meat melts in the mouth. Paired with tamarind, the fruity sourness compliments the meat.
The slow-cooking of the onion, garlic and chilli paste give this curry a distinct flavour. Duck and potato are my favourite combination.
