Leftover roast chicken with pumpkin curry

Leftover roast chicken with pumpkin curry #1 @MissFoodFairy

I love Winter for the curries, stews, roast dinners and slow cooking everything! Winter is the time to enjoy the warming, tender, slow cooked meats with delicious tasting sauces and the wonderful Winter vegetables stocking market shelves. These are a few of my favourite things in Winter which make me feel all warm and cosy, like an open fire place with great company and that perfect bottle of Shiraz. Continue reading

In my Kitchen July 2015

Nanna's plate #IMK @MissFoodFairy

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue is the theme for the goodies in my kitchen this month. This saying is usually used for good luck for the bride on her wedding day – hope it gives me good luck cooking in my kitchen this month! Continue reading

Roast pumpkin soup with bacon croutons

@MissFoodFairy roast pumpkin & bacon crouton soup #1

And you can tell – flannelette sheets on the bed, wearing ugg boots (wool lined casual boots), fires burning (pictured above at my sister’s house, which isn’t far from her kitchen) and wearing beanies everywhere I go!

San choy bau

San choy bau #7 @MissFoodFairy

‘Keep it simple’ was the push that I needed to hear – wise words from the Godfather of modern cuisine, Marco Pierre White, on Masterchef a couple of weeks ago. Up until that point, the food and recipes I created were hit and miss and I’ll be the first to admit it! Overcomplicating dishes, using too many ingredients, this is not the way I usually cook. It didn’t matter how hard I tried, my food couldn’t even look good in photos! That’s the reason for not too much sharing going on this past month. To me, food needs to not only look great but taste amazing and the dishes that make my husband and family smile is the food I will enjoy sharing with you. Continue reading
