Pandan Black Rice with Salted Coconut

I recently discovered pandan leaves after an opportunistic visit to Dunedin’s farmers market. Arriving far too late for the best pickings, I was rescued by a good friend with a bag full of obscure greenery and a flair for South-East Asian cuisine.

Jordan’s Reuben Sandwich

I credit the sandwich as my gateway food into a general curiosity for cooking. The combination of ingredients are almost as endless as the ways you can eat them, and to kick off the ‘month of lunch’ I can’t think of anything more appropriate.

s’mores

I have spent many a cold winter in the states, thanks to my obsession with the cold, white stuff, and in that time I quickly developed a taste for the great campfire treat our American friends call s’mores. On many occasions, during a bonfire evening, where we were wrapped up warm and surrounded by snow, a [...]
