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.

Chocolate bark

For a sweet treat with a twist, you can’t go past this simple recipe for chocolate bark. It is sure to wow, but is also incredibly easy to make – especially if you’re lucky enough to be using an induction cooktop, where the heat control is so precise so you can melt the chocolate directly [...]

Almond pancakes with blueberries and ice cream

Pancakes are a treat; they are often cooked in ones pjs on a lazy weekend morning.  So topping them with fresh blueberries and ice cream for our Mother’s Day shoot really pushed this already treat food into unchartered breakfast territory

Christmas muesli

My friend Margaret makes the most incredible Christmas fruit mince every year. This muesli is my tribute - capturing the warm, wintery flavours of her traditional recipe in a lighter, brighter more summery dish. Perfectly paired with a sunny Saturday morning and a short black.

Festive spiced nuts

After not writing a blog post for a while I want to say so much about 2015 it really all boils down to being content with the year I’ve had and excited for the year ahead.   Although I’ve been light on posts

Rosewater and Cardamom Cake

Roses are one of my absolute favourite things in the world. Inspired by a childhood spent playing outside in the garden, I am completely enamoured with the beautiful flowers and their sweet scent. Both of my Grandmothers have beautiful rose gardens, and I have spent many happy days with them over the years pottering around [...]

Salted caramel ice cream

This is another post inspired by our experience at the recent food design conference held right here in Dunedin. Three days of foodie heaven, with lectures and workshops on all things culinary, what a treat.

Gluten free carrot cake with cashew icing

I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of gluten free and wheat free which has been a relatively easy change. I don’t necessarily feel that everyone should avoid gluten and wheat

Coconut & mango chia seed pudding

This recipe sits somewhere in between a dessert and a breakfast.  It has a gelatinous texture similar to that of sago and is creamy like rice pudding, without all the sugar and fat.  What makes it even more wonderful is that it is very quick to prepare.

Walnut Drink

In January I made my second trip up to Qingdao in China’s Shandong province. It was a short trip but we packed in plenty of good food!  Over the course of the week, our gracious hosts took us to a variety of restaurants around the city, ordering up plate upon plate of local dishes.  I [...]
