One Pot Camping Meals (Take Two)

One Pot Camping Meals (Take Two) I just found the book I wrote camp recipes in when we were road tripping in November and December last year and realised that I still have some beauties to share with you. The recipes are so easy for camping as they all only need one saucepan or wok to cook them in. Which also makes them great for one pot meals in the home.   Once again all these recipes fed...

As it’s a super hot time of the year and the kitchen we cater in reaches at least 10°C hotter than the outside temperature, I am always on the look out for recipes that don’t...

Curing my childhood nostalgia with Green Papaya Salad (Som Tum)

You know those meals that you had growing up that you just can’t get out of your head. Something that you just have to have from time to time to overcome the nostalgia. Green Papaya Salad (Som Tum) is one of those dishes for me.

The Perfect Salad

In 2013 I was asked to cater for the wedding of Sarah and Jo. All the weddings that I have catered are memorable and I feel grateful for the opportunity to have been part of their special day.  Sarah and Jo’s wedding I remember so well as I was amazed at how relaxed and surrendered they were about the catering.    After the initial booking I asked Sarah if she would like to meet...
