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.

Peanut Butter Cup Tart

Late one night, I found myself craving a certain American sweet treat. Salty but smooth peanut filling encased in deliciously creamy chocolate.

Orange and Cranberry Muffins

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 [...]

Peanut butter brownie

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 [...]

Hot X Doughnuts

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.

Imperial Stout Affogato

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.

Homemade Mozzarella

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 [...]

Amie’s Dads’ dumplings

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.

Raw ‘Choc’ orange slice

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:

Joe’s Cheese Rolls

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 [...]

Spiced pumpkin tarte tatin

Rosie McLean is a final year student studying for a Bachelor of Culinary Arts at Otago Polytechnic. Rosie has her own blog where she indulges us in her weakness for all things sweet. As a special Halloween treat, Rosie popped in and cooked this amazing dish. I must admit that I personally ate four of [...]

11th September 2014


Daniel Magg is an Electronics Engineer here at F&P. He previously worked in our Dunedin office – where he contributed his Baumkuchen recipe and now he resides in Auckland. I know Daniel as a guy who makes strong coffees, likes football and has a very dry sense of humour. He’s also a good cook. I wondered whether this recipe [...]

Saag Aloo pie

Becky works alongside me as one of our cooking product evaluators and she never fails to come up with new and inventive ways to test our cooking products. Her passion for cooking equates to a lot of delicious ‘engineer feed’ coming out of the lab so we asked her to whip up a favourite for [...]
