This is my kind of comfort food; food you can always turn to, that is easy to prepare, looks after itself and is satisfying to eat! And, with the added bonus of the whole meal being cooked in one pot it’s easy clean up too.
Students aren’t the only ones who need ramen to survive but sometimes a 30 cent packet of the instant version just doesn’t cut the mustard (or in this case the wasabi). Ramen is the Japanese pronunciation of Chinese Lo mein and these noodles have a long and rich history
If you can make a good Bolognese sauce then you can make a good lasagne, and if you can make a good lasagne then strangely you’ll always find you have plenty of friends gathered round your dining table!
I am totally over winter this year. To be honest, it hasn’t even been *that* bad ( pretty sure i just jinxed us all here in Dunedin with that comment), but getting up in the morning, while it is still pitch black just doesn’t have the same appeal.
For as long as I have been contributing to this blog I have toyed with the idea of posting a recipe for spaghetti Bolognese. Long has it been a staple meal in our family and I am pretty sure that it is the first recipe Mum taught me to make many, many years ago. I [...]
This is a great flavour packed dish that I enjoyed on a trip to Vietnam during last years Christmas holidays. Inspired by a cooking class that my wife and I attended in the little historic coastal trading port of Hoi An.

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
This is a superb version of the good old kiwi roast. The flavours are modern yet true to the traditional genius of lamb paired with beautiful, fresh mint. I can’t actually take credit for this one, as it was the standard way that my old boss Isabelle used to do her roasts, and she swore [...]
As a child my Dad was never much of a cook, but it didn’t much matter as he made up for it in other ways. His culinary forays were limited in their breadth and included staples such as chicken wings, lamb chops, chicken nuggets and Toad in the Hole – a dish whose name was [...]
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 [...]
Every family has their own version of the fish pie and boy I’ve tasted some good ones (I’m talking to you Lou). This one’s perfect for making small bite-sized pies. Now all I need to do is plan a fishing trip.
