It has been quite cool here in Melbourne for the past couple of weeks and yesterday was freezing – only 12°C with icy winds from the snow fields and lots of rain! Winter has come a month early! Apart from soup, there’s nothing better than a hot bowl of creamy carbonara for lunch to make you feel toasty and forget the rainy mess outside. Continue reading
I love experimenting with flavours and this omelette is no different. Made with Gippsland free range eggs, from the Queen Victoria Market, wasabi cheese and kale micro herbs – delicious! Welcome to In my Kitchen for the month of May. So much to share with you all . . . so let’s get started. Continue reading
I apologise for the lack of posts since my last – I’ve been taking make-up classes for school over the past couple of weeks. I missed out on my classes for stocks, sauces & soups last year when I was taken to see Rick Stein and they had to be completed for me to get my Commercial Cookery certificate. I’m all done now & hope to be back in full swing sharing with you some dishes I’ve been trying. Continue reading
I missed you guys! March was an absolute blur! There was so much going on in my life I completely missed last month’s IMK! I was preparing dumplings, sausage rolls, pulled pork, veal cutlets, potato salad and coleslaw, which were thoroughly enjoyed by all our friends & family, for our annual Australian Grand Prix party. April is the time for Easter (especially chocolate Easter eggs), footy (go Swannies!), my sister & husbands birthdays and daylight savings ending (sad face!) This means dinners will have to be organised earlier while it’s still daylight.
This has to be the best, spiciest and is definitely up there with one of the hottest chilli oils I’ve ever tried. I think to enjoy the whole experience of dumplings, you must have a fantastic chilli oil to go with them. Look no further, this chilli oil ticks all the boxes and has even the most non-chilli fanatics coming back for more. My husband & I can’t get enough of this oil. We’ll have it with our stir fries, meat or Asian style vegetables. My husband would have this on his corn flakes for breakfast if he could ;)
