salad

It feels like Winter has beenwith us for ages, when it’s only just begun. Ever searching for the silver lining,  I’m trying to make the most of all the wonderful winter ingredients that are now in season. There’s beautiful coloured cabbages, rainbow carrots and ruby red raddishes that brighten up any salad. I always try to eat foods that are naturally bright in colour…they just feel like they’re healing the body from the inside out. I’m sure it’s exactly what your body needs and craves in the middle of winter,

Busy busy busy…and it’s only going to get worse with the silly season fast approaching! Yes – the festive season is hot on our heels, only 5 weeks away. GULP! So with that in mind, I’ve been busy arranging a reprint on the Adeline & Lumiere Christmas book. Last year I was so busy designing the book, arranging the printing, sending them out, it was all a mad rush to ensure everybody had them before Christmas. To make a brand new book was a little bit too much for me

If you follow me on Facebook you might have seen one of my updates earlier in the week… the excitement of my latest purchase, the Jerusalem cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. The other day I popped into my favourite independent book shop The Hill of Content to have a little look around. As soon as I spotted Jerusalem, and had a flick through, that was it. I had to have it. It has the most amazing looking salads and even a ‘stuffed’ section. So good. All week I’ve been reading through

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaack! It’s been a while since I posted here – over a month – and I’m sorry for such a long break but so much has happened in those 5 little weeks. I’ve been so busy lately, even this post was a bit of a rush (hence why I haven’t written much) but I figure you’re all here to see the pretty pictures and read the recipes anyway. Right? One of the projects that’s been keeping me busy has been a very special wintery dinner party which I hope

On Friday we attended the exhibition Trophy Lives to see Seb’s print (amongst other illustrators) on the wall at the Hungry Workshop. It was also the official opening/warming of the space and boy the place was PACKED! All prints looked amazing as they were beautifully framed by United Measures which are seriously a work of art in themselves. We’ve been meaning to get a few prints framed here but just haven’t got around to it – yet another task on the list of ‘Things to Do’. You can read more

On Saturday I had a family portrait shoot with little 20 month old Alex and family. The weather was perfect, we had clear blue skies and sunshine. Perfect weather for playing chasings, hide and seek and singing songs (anything to get little Alex to smile)…     Later that afternoon Seb and I swang past The Hungry Workshop (a letterpress print and design studio on Northcote High St.).  We were there to check out the whole printing process and to pick colours for Seb’s letterpress print for THW’s upcoming exhibition

I’ve been meaning to make a calamari salad for weeks so I’m glad to say today is the day! It’s definitely a summery salad, and as we’re fast approaching the end of summer *gasp* I thought I’d better get my skates on. I’ve wanted to make a few more dishes with the Moroccan preserved lemons from a few months back (if you didn’t see them they’re right over here). I looked at a few recipes for inspiration and came up with this little ditty. I was very excited to finally

Well well it’s been yet another busy weekend @_@  We went back down to Hobart over the weekend for a lovely friends wedding.  I had been checking the weather all week and it had forecast four days of rain (eeek!).  But in true Tasmanian style, the weather did the exact opposite and turned on a beautiful sunny day. Not a cloud in the sky! After the ceremony, we all made our way down to the wharf where we caught a ferry to the reception venue, Peppermint Bay.  It’s one of

Last week I popped down to the Vic Markets to buy our weekly meat & veg. After every visit I always wonder why I bother with supermarkets when there are such amazing markets right on the doorstep. Everything is so cheap and the produce is far fresher than anything you’d find in the shops.  Not only that, but there’s so much choice – I always seem to find different varieties of vegetables that you’d never find in conventional supermarkets.     No trip down to the Vic markets would be

Sophie’s Salmon

A couple of weeks ago my good friend Sophie asked me to help photograph some food for one of her uni assignments.  She’s in her second year at RMIT, doing what sounds like the most amazing degree ever (a little bit jealous here).  I’m sure it’s helped by the fact that she’s extremely good at what she does! Anyway, her class were given the task of creating a recipe book based on the classic colour wheel.  Each student was asked to choose one of their favourite recipes based on a
