Becky works alongside me as one of our cooking product evaluators and she never fails to come up with new and inventive ways to test our cooking products. Her passion for cooking equates to a lot of delicious ‘engineer feed’ coming out of the lab so we asked her to whip up a favourite for [...]
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.
Last week we introduced Andrew, a Design Engineer here at F&P. Rather than relying on luck when cooking a roast beef, he used a method based on a principal of thirds. Cooking for me has always been my creative outlet but Andrew’s shown me it has another side, a technical side
Being Samoan Chinese and living in Samoa eating chicken cream corn soup is a given for our family. Always eaten during Sunday tonai (lunch feast) as an appetizer along with Oka (see my post here) it is one of the many Chinese dishes I was taught to cook before heading off to university.
While travelling around Southern Italy earlier this year, I reconnected with many things – the sun (we had a particularly average summer in Dunedin this year), reading books (made from paper! With wine in one hand, feet up – time to relax!), incredible architecture and design, and….pasta!
Eating from a pre-prepared lunchbox never sat well with me as a child. I couldn’t seem to trust that the food going in would be the food coming out, and often it wasn’t. It is no surprise then that I find myself cooking the majority of my lunches.
I credit the sandwich as my gateway food into a general curiosity for cooking. The combination of ingredients are almost as endless as the ways you can eat them, and to kick off the ‘month of lunch’ I can’t think of anything more appropriate.
Every autumn around Easter time, I always feel the pull of home, the embrace of family and the welcome warmth of a roaring log fire.
Heading into the chillier days life as a chestnut would have to be pretty swell. Happily nestled into a cosy little pod lined with silky fur with the protection of a magnitude of needle like spikes to ward off any hungry creatures.
This recipe was a collective labour of love. Very appropriate given that the people cooking it, that very morning were just newly engaged! This groom-to-be proposed to his Aussie belle, then leap from bed in search of a good solid shoulder of pork like the good hunter-gatherer that he is. Next thing we know he’s [...]
Here is my take on the traditional Korean noodle dish Japchae. It’s a beautifully light noodle dish with a wonderful sweet and salty flavour. The noodles are made from sweet potato starch which is a great alternative to the usually wheat or rice based noodle. The semi-transparent appearance and slightly chewy texture off the noodle [...]
Whilst there’s not a religious bone in my body, I have been unwittingly espousing the wonders of Fish Fridays! Unbeknownst to me the religious significance of eating fish on Fridays runs deep. Eating fish on this day is a commemorative nod to the sacrifice of Jesus who gave his life (on a Friday) to redeem [...]
