Curried tomato soup

I first stumbled across a version of this curried tomato soup on Heidi Swanson’s 101 cookbooks.  It is one of those dishes I find myself making again and again.  Its quick to throw together, packs lots of flavour and can be finished in lots of ways to mix it up – add a poached egg [...]

Curried avocado and cauliflower

I’ve been on a sabbatical from contributing recipes to our blog.  Unlike Richie’s 2013 rugby sabbatical mine has been unintended…and with less effect on both the team and the nation.  With Richie giving the country a massive shoulder-ride at the moment, I shouldn’t really compare my situation to that of this great human, but I [...]

Caesar salad

I read a blog recently which commented that the Caesar salad is the poster food for dining mediocracy, every laminated A4 menu is likely to contain a substandard version and you can always add chicken for an extra $5
