This is one of those fantastic go-to recipes, perfect for the holiday season when lazy days are spent at the beach and little energy is left to think about or execute dinner plans! It is very quick and easy to prepare and served with rice and steamed veges makes a healthy meal, an ideal remedy [...]

Spicy chicken wings with chipotle & lime sauce

The weather is warming up here in Aotearoa which means barbecue season is upon us. After 17 years barbecuing (taken from my thirteenth birthday where I was gifted my first barbecue) I’m looking for something different, interesting and a change

Quick-roasted butterflied coconut chicken

I love roast chicken, it’s a perfect meal for any occasion. However despite this love affair that many of us share I’m always looking to improve on perfection. Sweet, salty, sour, spicy and fragrant this bird ticks all the boxes and because it is butterflied it’s quicker to cook than your usual roast chook

Mark’s Thai Green Curry

The Fisher & Paykel family is spread far and wide across the globe, but there is one thing that ties us together…food really is at the centre of so much of what we do. In our Huntington Beach, California office, once a month a “One Ingredient” cooking competition is held, turning the staff kitchen into [...]

Coconut & lime roast chicken

This is the second of two recipes intended for our hangi which sadly was rained out.  I had intended to marinate the chicken overnight, then wrapping it in banana leaves before placing it into the hangi baskets to spend the day slowly cooking.  Whilst the rain quashed these plans I decided to resolutely stick to [...]

Chicken sandwiches

It’s a rainy Saturday in New Plymouth and whilst I am lucky enough to be sheltered indoors from the elements, my boyfriend is not quite so fortunate.  Underneath the house, safely tucked away in his mums garage is his beautiful Humber Super Snipe and this weekend has been earmarked to give her a bit of [...]

Vietnamese inspired chicken burgers

This recipe began life as a chicken ball.  Bursting with flavour, its outward appearance (pale and insipid) did little to promote its culinary virtues.  I saw in it the potential for greater things however and thus set about turning it into a chicken burger.  Full of flavour, the patty itself required very little attention, other [...]

Ginger chilli chicken on rice

I cannot claim this recipe as my own and instead I must admit that it is a specialty of the eldest of my two younger brothers, Tim.  He whips it up in the blink of an eye, fires up the BBQ and before you know it the air is filled with the aroma of lemongrass [...]

Slow cooked duck with plums

I have been fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of several dozen tiny wee duck legs and a handful of breasts, kindly shared with me by one of our friendly engineers here at F&P.  When this month’s theme was decided upon I thought the duck an apt ingredient with which to create a [...]

Coriander & ginger chicken sandwiches

Like Joey Tribbiani, I am a huge fan of the humble sandwich and admit to often taking a perfectly good meal and placing it between two slices of bread. I don’t know if it’s the taste or because it’s like eating a little package, or because there is no cutlery, no plates and therefore no [...]

Larb gai

In the spirit of this brand New Year, I would like to propose a toast to new beginnings and to being inspired anew.  There is nothing like seeing out one year and ushering in the next, full of hope and promise, of goals and visions and also of things unknown.  2011 was a great year [...]

Pete’s thai green curry

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. [...]
