Have you ever eaten cabrito, capretto or chevon? Maybe if I describe it differently: do you eat goat meat? Did you know that Australia is the world’s largest goat meat exporter and that goat meat is the most widely consumed red meat in the world? (They’re also super cute, but I don’t know if I [...]
Chiffon cakes are the best cakes. They are, seriously. They’re light, they’re fluffy, they’re not too sweet, and (unlike sponge cakes) I can actually bake them. They’re so lovely and have the nicest texture.
So… if you had a big bunch of watercress, what would you do with it? Having never bought watercress before (remembering that I couldn’t even identify it…) the first thing that came to mind was soup. But soup – although it has its place – is a bit boring to blog. I had too much [...]
What’s green, furry and grows on trees? I know that this sounds like the beginning to a terrible joke, but I do have a serious answer for you: almonds. I’m going to be completely honest and tell you – I had no idea that immature almonds came in a fuzzy green pod. It’s not something [...]

How good is browned butter? You take something already awesome – butter – and make it 1000 times better and fragrant and nutty. Just by cooking it until it goes brown. Magic.
This is another one of my “throw everything into the pressure cooker and assume it will be okay” meals. (And all was okay.) It’s not winter where I am right now – it’s actually really hot and very humid – but when I purchased these pieces of osso bucco it was back in Melbourne when [...]
Yes, yes, beef ribs again. I’m telling you – it’s going to be a thing if it isn’t already. I cooked this dish on two separate occasions. The first time, I wasn’t intending to blog it. But as soon as I ate it, my head went, “This is so yum!” so I had to cook [...]
I had bought beetroot with the intention of shredding them and eating them raw in a salad. And then… they sat in the pantry for a while.
