Pie

The weeks are flying by waaaay too quickly these days. So much to do with the Deja-View cinema, constant tweaking of the blog and trying to sneak in a catchup with friends. BTW – did anybody notice the blog has had a little facelift? All photos now are a super big 700px wide (instead of only 500px) and they look soo much better (if I do say so myself!). Making these small tweaks has been on my list of ‘things to do’ for about a year now and thanks to

Whilst everything seems to be pretty relaxed around here, there’s been a lot of activity behind the scenes. I’m like a little duck sitting on the water, all cool and calm whilst my little legs are going a hundred miles an hour. I’ll share a little more with you later on, but in the meantime here are a few photos I took for a Broadsheet shoot a few weeks ago. A friend of mine has been writing a few articles for Broadsheet and asked if I’d be interested in collaborating on

Well what a contrast in weather from last weekend to this weekend! From high thirties straight to low twenties. The sudden drop in temperature meant I felt like putting on my uggies’ and cooking something comforting. Cauliflowers were on special in the supermarket so thought I’d use this as part of a pie. It’s a vegetable I often overlook so thought I’d give it go. In the end it was quite a simple pie to make, and a great way to use up any excess vegetables you may have laying

It’s that time of year again – footy finals time when Melbourne comes alive! Even people at work are donning their team colours around the office, they’re MAD for it! You may or may not remember the amazing Lamb & Harissa Sausage rolls I made for last years grand final? They went down a treat and were perfect served with the homemade Harissa sauce I also made. OH MY! In my opinion you always need a good dose of pastry at a footy grand final… and this year is no exception.

Savoury Pumpkin Pie

Woooooo auughhhhh! It’s Halloween week here on the Adeline & Lumiere blog so I’ve been cooking up a spooky storm for y’all! It was around this time a few years ago that a group of us had trained from Gothenburg in Sweden down to Copenhagen for Sebs birthday. We had read a bit about Copenhagen and the famous Tivoli gardens but hadn’t expected it to be all spruced up Halloween style! Seriously, I had never seen so many pumpkins in all my life! The gardens had been completely transformed &

Chicken & Leek Pie

…this is what I finished my amazing Sunday off with. Chin chin…here’s to this weekend!     Chicken & Leek Pie olive oil 1 leek, chopped 1 onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, finely chopped Salt & Pepper 1/2 cup white wine 1 carrot, chopped 1 stalk celery, chopped 1 large chicken breast 200ml cream 200ml milk 2 tbsp flour Puff pastry, store bought, thawed 1.

  I made this Apple & Blueberry Pie for a bbq a few weeks ago and it was so well received – to say the least! If you’re not confident about making pastry, have no fear. The recipe is dead easy as you pretty much just put everything in your food processor/mixer/bowl and just beat it till it comes together. I think one of the most important things in pastry making is letting it rest and cool in the fridge. Let your filling cool quite a bit before you start

Vegetable Pie

BRING ON THE ASH CLOUD!!! Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had the pleasure of fostering a few strays that the ash cloud swept in! Yippee for me! My last visitor was lucky enough to be stuck in Melbourne on business so had an extra day off from work – all expenses paid!  Although she had a nice hotel room waiting for her, I thought there’s so substitute for a good home cooked meal so I decided to cook the Vegetable Pie that I’ve been thinking about for the
