We are excited to introduce our guest blogger profile. Here we will share recipes from past members of the blog team, friends, family, colleagues, and you the reader (watch this space). We thought it would be a great way to showcase the beautiful recipes from those outside of the blog team whose culinary exploits inspire us.
For a long time I really hated Zucchini, served to me as a child… horrendously over cooked and soggy, adorning a plate of roast. Oh, the ways I would try and get around it; most notably by saving it for last, hiding it in my mouth then running it off to spit it in the toilet.
Anyone that knows me knows that I have an enormous sweet tooth, so naturally when we were discussing what we could make as a part of the 2016 Love Food Hate Waste campaign to “use up your leftovers” I immediately thought of something sweet.
These delicious and saucy ribs will make your mouth water, we combined beautifully soft broiled beef ribs with a fresh palate cleansing broad bean and radish salad that evokes feelings of summer and time with family or friends around the table with plates of lovingly prepared food.
Dani our awesome intern from the food design institute in Dunedin spent a couple of weeks in our Auckland office cooking up a storm. Now at she’s gone back down South we are really missing the flood of delicious treats!
Late one night, I found myself craving a certain American sweet treat. Salty but smooth peanut filling encased in deliciously creamy chocolate.
When you grow up with a mechanical engineer for a Dad, it seems inevitable you will be equal parts curious and methodical. A few months ago we were lucky enough to have year 12 Otago Girls High student Holly spend a couple of days here with the design team completing some work experience. Passionate about [...]
One of the side effects of being both a scientist and foodie is that ideas and inspiration sometimes come about in the most unexpected of ways. This peanut butter brownie recipe (loosely based on one from BBC Good Food) is one I first made for “work purposes” in my previous life as an ice cream [...]
For me Easter is about finding the perfect hot cross bun, scouring the city for weeks hunting out the perfect fruit to spice ratio. A quick kiss under the grill, topped with a proper slice of butter is the only way to start an Autumn Sunday morning.
Beer and ice cream? To some people this is going to sound like a horrible waste of beer – or maybe a horrible waste of ice cream – but it’s definitely worth a try, especially if you can find a pairing you like.
Jed is what I like to call a farmers foodie. You won’t catch him waxing lyrical about the nutty Edam cheese notes in a chardonnay but spend a couple of hours with Jed and you might be lucky enough to extract a few nuggets of wisdom on vege gardening, composting, or his new favourite local [...]
We were so lucky last week to have Amie not only share her dad’s dumplings recipe with us but also teach us how to make them. Here are her words about this special family recipe.
This very healthy and delicious (a perfect combo in my humble opinion) recipe comes courtesy of Bekah Carran – artist, budding raw foodist and conveniently partner of my desk buddy Matt. Last week Matt brought in some treats Bekah had made and we just had to get her to share the recipe with us:
Our new friend Joe has been hanging out with us at the Dunedin office for the past few weeks, getting a taste of a ridiculously good Dunedin summer whilst simultaneously gathering knowledge for his Masters Degree at Victoria. Joe is back in Wellington now but we are hoping to see our new friend again soon [...]
This blog is born of the passion of a group of friends here at Fisher & Paykel. Ardent lovers of food and cooking, we want to inspire our readers, share our recipes and impart knowledge.
