Like Joey Tribbiani, I am a huge fan of the humble sandwich and admit to often taking a perfectly good meal and placing it between two slices of bread. I don’t know if it’s the taste or because it’s like eating a little package, or because there is no cutlery, no plates and therefore no dishes! Take some underwhelming foods, put them between slices of soft bread
This post is the last for 2011 and thus I feel it necessary to reflect on the twelve months that have been. It has been a busy year for us here in the studio in Auckland and all of us have had the satisfaction of seeing some of our designs come to fruition. One of the highlights of being an industrial designer is witnessing the parts/products we design turn from 3D
On asking the boys in the design studio what their ideal rugby watching snack might be, they replied that it was anything they could eat without having to pull their gaze from the flat screen or remove a hand from their ice-cold beer. This fits the bill perfectly. The combination of jalapeño, lime and macadamia nut makes for an incredibly moreish snack so be prepared
So this month we have been busy creating recipes based on whole grains and super foods, and I like to think that for most of my day, I am quite virtuous in my food choices. There are of course two exceptions. One, I love to bake; and two, I love to snack! Baking is something I never want to address: butter, sugar, white flour, these are three of my close and personal friends.
What better way to start my first ever guest post off than with a recipe for children’s’ month. My mum used to make these delicious chicken goujons for my sister and I when we were small, and I adapted the recipe and made it my own whilst working in the kitchen of an alpine chalet in France.
When floating round ideas for this month it was decided someone had to make sausage. It’s the ultimate Kiwi outdoor food and unfortunately not something us Kiwi’s do very well. Although lately there has been a vast improvement in our sausage dabblings we’re still not on par with the likes of Europe.
