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.
Here at Fisher & Paykel we are fortunate to work with people in countries from Thailand, to Mexico, Australia and the United States. We are fond of these inter-continental relationships and so decided this month that we would pay homage to them, celebrating the cultural diversity that filters its way through our workplace. Through our [...]
This recipe was kindly passed on to me by Roberto, a Product Performance Technician from our F&P factory in Reynosa, Mexico. Roberto talks fondly of his time spent in the Dunedin office – after thrown into one of their famous Office Cook Offs, he influenced his team to prepare the dish “Ahuja’s Northenas”
This post is the last for 2011 and thus I feel it necessary to reflect on the twelve months that have been. It has been a busy year for us here in the studio in Auckland and all of us have had the satisfaction of seeing some of our designs come to fruition. One of [...]
A few weeks ago the industrial design team in Dunedin had a shared morning tea to celebrate a couple of birthdays. Annie made this beautiful cheesecake; it was so good we persuaded her to share her secret recipe with everyone!
This recipe was kindly shared with us by Jennifer, our Learning and Development Specialist here at Fisher & Paykel. Jennifer is American and so it is particularly appropriate that she in contributing to the blog over this Thanksgiving period. Jennifer is a fantastically passionate baker and is always keen to share her stories
Genevieve works as a cooking product evaluator here in the Dunedin office. It has been a few months since she last shared a recipe with us; she has been too busy in the cooking lab testing appliances!
Outside of the blog team I think that Simone is one of our most regular guest bloggers. It has been a while since she last shared a recipe with us, due mostly in part to the arrival of a beautiful baby girl into this world, and also because she now works remotely from all the [...]
When I sent word out to our Product Development team gently persuading them to share with us their tried-and-true recipes, I wasn’t sure how many, or exactly who would respond. I have to admit that the majority of recipes ended up coming from the males in our office, though just how many of them sought [...]
Once again it’s time to celebrate one of our many colleagues who is passionate about baking. Linda, one of the technical writers, is particularly skilled in the art of home baking. Linda shares her thoughts with us. “Louise slice evokes the image of ladies’ afternoon tea, lace tablecloths, and bone china, the soft tinkling of [...]
This is not the first time I have introduced Pete. Almost two years ago now (how time flies!) he shared with us his recipe for Creamy Bacon Carbonara which has proved to be the most popular recipe on the blog since it was posted! Hopefully this one gives the other a run for its money. [...]
Ed, one of the functional leaders down here in Dunedin, didn’t have much choice about sharing his recipe for hollandaise sauce – I insisted, as I have been lucky enough to try it many times before. This is his story;
When scouting for recipes for this months theme I was pleasantly surprised by the number of males who came forward to share their recipes with us. Aidan is one these males and he kindly shared a recipe for Oaty Brown Bread, straight from the homeland, Ireland. Here are his thoughts on this hearty loaf:
Custard squares are a bit of a Kiwi tradition, you are always lucky to find them in a café as they don’t normally last long. There can be some technique involved in eating one, if the custard filling is too soft then when you bite into the pastry top and bottom, the custard squishes out [...]
