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 [...]

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 [...]

Rich’s 3 salads

To celebrate the halfway point of my first Dunedin winter, I decided to celebrate with an impromptu team dinner - 3 different salads made up this meal, but each of these could easily be transformed into sides or main dishes on their own.

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

Date and almond guilt-free slice

You’ve indulged a little too much at Christmas right?  Me too.  What I find is that you can’t go cold-turkey on the sugar, you still crave that sweet hit mid-morning or mid-afternoon.  This sweet treat is guilt-free and will trick your mind, leaving you sat-is-fied

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 [...]

Happy Birthday to us!

Today Our Kitchen turns 3 – another year filled with delicious food! As we grow a little older and (hopefully) wiser, our repertoires bulge with yet more recipes, shared with us by family, friends and colleagues; dreamed up and tested, tweaked and tasted so that we can cook, style, shoot and share them. We have [...]

Aunty Kathryn’s Spiced Pecans

In October this year, I packed my suitcase and popped across the ditch to be bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding on Queensland’s Gold Coast.  A few days before the wedding, we travelled south-west along the Pacific Highway

Caramel poached pears

  Somehow I’m often relegated to dessert duty at any sort of gathering of food and friends. At this time of year these caramel poached pears are the perfect choice usually because I am powerless to resist all the beautiful pears in baskets at the Dunedin farmers’ market and always end up with too many [...]
