A Vegan Gluten Free Plum Cake (something that all your guests can eat!!)

  • 29 January 2018

As much as I would rather share a savoury recipe with you this week I feel it is high time I share a sweet treat with you. As many of you know I don't really have a sweet tooth so when I found out I was going to a vegan picnic I thought woo hoo I can develop a new recipe to share with you all and not have to even taste it. I tried it out at the picnic and everyone loved it. Served it with...


Dips for the Weekend

  • 23 January 2018

It feels like an eternity ago since we celebrated the turning of the new year. For new years eve and new years day dinner Makrand and I enjoyed a lush antipasto platter and I did promise recipes from the platter on social media. We had garlic bread, dips and cheeses, silverbeet dolmades and pan fried mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, artichokes olives and veggie sticks. Since new year it has been so...


What Oil Do You Cook With? Here’s My Take on Oils

  • 15 January 2018

What is the low down on oils. This is a hard one. I personally don’t fry much with oil. My preferred choice of using oil is splashing organic olive oil into a pasta sauce or running it through my lunch time salad. As a caterer though I am asked to shallow fry corn fritters and burgers for lunch and I looked at the high heat point of oils and thought that rice bran was the best to use however I...


Happy 2018: Celebrate with Five Smoothie Recipes

  • 08 January 2018

Happy 2018 everyone. I hope that you are having a great year so far, nine days in. I wish you all a year of abundance, balance, good food and above all kindness. It is feeling a really kind year so far with the vegan January initiative seeing a big increase on people signing up to try out a month on a vegan diet. In December one person was signing up every six seconds.

Ebony Tippett is one of the 2016 graduated vegan chefs and since her graduation she has been head chef of The Quay Canteen in Woolongong.

Ebony also serves her own signature spread, vegan nutella for breakfast. Vegan cakes, raw and cooked...


Everyone Loves A Good Curry (well I do anyway and this is a fantastic curry recipe)

  • 27 November 2017

I realized when writing the title of this blog post that it’s probably not true that everyone loves a good curry. I know a few people who actually don’t like curry and may possibly go through their whole lives not enjoying curry. I figured those people won’t read this blog post anyway and the ones who do love a good curry will be delighted and read on to get yet another curry recipe. At the...


Cooking with Seasonal Produce – It’s Asparagus time!

  • 14 November 2017

It's asparagus season and I need to get in quick with this blog as asparagus season is often short lived, where I live anyway. There are all sorts of nutritional benefits to eating asparagus, like it has a good source of vitamin A (which we need for our eyesight, building our immunity and reproduction of cells and it also helps with organ health) is a great antioxidant, can serve as a diuretic,...
