Flashback to 20 or so years ago, and most Sundays we would go to my grandpa’s house and have the most legendary roast dinners – roast beef with Yorkshire puddings, the crispiest, yet fluffiest roast potatoes you could imagine – delicious flavoursome vegetables and gravy…. Don’t get me started on how good the gravy was;

Breakfast pizza

I recently got married (I had to drop this major life event into a post eventually) and an extremely generous gift-giving-group made up of an aunty, an uncle and cousins gave us a kitchen aid mixer. For the last few weeks I’ve told anyone who will listen: “I got a kitchen aid mixer!” followed by [...]

Gluten free coconut, cranberry and almond muesli

You may not have the same obsession with muesli as I do so I completely understand if you think it’s not an appropriate lunch food. But it’s more than appropriate for those mornings when you’ve run out of time at home to eat and so find yourself sitting at your desk, checking your morning emails [...]

Vietnamese eggs

Breakfast is a polarising meal.  There are those of us who take great pleasure from the first meal of the day, the break of the nocturnal fast, and yet there are others who abhor it.  In an effort to wake from deathly slumber some rely on administering staggeringly large doses of caffeine before the faculty [...]

Fried Easter porridge

I must thank my boyfriend for this recipe which I have a sneaking suspicion was one of many he had up his sleeve, at the ready, to woo me with in the early days of our courtship.  This is not to suggest however that his culinary endeavours ground to a halt once he’d won me [...]

Heidi’s lentil piadina

Heidi, our marketing coordinator based in Borso Del Grappa, sent me this recipe on my first day back in the office this January. It was a lovely surprise to have a fresh recipe to try for the New Year and I have been making these for my lunches a lot recently. The lentils make a [...]

Grilled banana sandwiches

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 [...]

Soy & linseed bircher muesli

I don’t know about you but over the summer holidays a mid-morning fry-up becomes a thing of habit rather than a special treat.  The Christmas ham gets thrown on the bbq along with eggs and fresh tomatoes and then I like to improve the entire meal (or ruin as my family may argue) by covering [...]

Smok’in fish and tatties

This month being man month, I decided to go with a dish that can satisfy a man sized hunger while offering some additional health benefits to my fellow males out there. At home here in New Zealand, the month of September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

Brekkie Slice

Every week, twice a week Lauren (fellow blogger) and I bake for the Dunedin office; the population of which is predominantly male, which worked out perfectly for this months’ theme of ‘blokes’ food.  In the past our efforts to create beautiful cupcakes, and slightly adventurous spinach and feta parcels, didn’t go down too well. The [...]

Ed’s Hollandaise sauce

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;

Almond, linseed and sunflower seed muesli

I love muesli and I like to surround myself with other people who love muesli. My mum has eaten muesli for breakfast her whole life and my boyfriend Luke eats muesli for dessert. In fact if left unsupervised, Luke will eat an entire box in one day. His muesli-habit can quickly get out of control so we generally try to make our own or we add our favourite
