I love new menu changes. Call me weird, that’s cool. Here is why I love menu changes… 1. New seasons bring seasonal produce. It’s mid Autumn here at the moment :) Veggies like celeriac, parsnip, kale, silverbeet and sweet potatoes are all in season. Autumn//Winter happen to be my favourite seasons for food.. it’s all … Continue reading
A really simple cheat version of pad thai. Easy for weeknight dinners, and makes enough to have left overs for lunch and dinner :D Ingredients: – 300g rice noodles – 1 cup raw snow peas, cut on the diagonal – 1 cup of bean sprouts – 3/4 cup of toasted peanuts – 1 long red … Continue reading
I made this recipe for my wonderful mother-in-law while we were living in their home. Cathy is coeliac, and her daughter Tahnee, my sister-in-law is gluten intolerant, so a lot of cakes and biccies and things are out of the question. I was dubious of how this would turn out, but I was pleasantly surprised. … Continue reading
So between my last post and now, I have had a birthday, moved house, bought a new house, and finished and completed my first block and my first year. I currently now have 717 days remaining.. ahh the joys. Everyone told me that it would go so fast.. but it forever seems to drag on. … Continue reading

When a senior position chef or head chef asks you a question, … Continue reading
I’ve been exploring vegan-friendly food lately. Vegan-friendly food makes me think outside the box – it makes me steer away from the usual milk, butter, eggs routine when making sweet goodies. I have made this a number of times now, and it’s been a hit with meat eaters and vegans alike. This fudgey tart is gluten free, … Continue reading
Tomato sauce out of a bottle makes me gag, it’s too sweet, too salty and too red.. All kinds of nasties live in that bottle. I made this tonight to serve alongside my lamb and fetta sausage rolls :) What a winner! Really easy and super delicious. And as an added bonus is completely clean ;) … Continue reading
Who doesn’t love sausage rolls ? Proper sausage rolls by the way – not the ones you can purchase from shotty bakeries or the local servo when you are rolling home from a night on the turps. A recent dish at work has made me think about sausage rolls. After some deliberation – it was simple… … Continue reading
Ahhh .. yesterday, it became all official. I am now a first year apprentice. It’s a little scary knowing now that I am signed into a three year contract. It doesn’t change my status in the kitchen strictly speaking, but, I don’t know, it feels a little different already. I am still doubting my skill-set … Continue reading
Bring on New Shanghai in Brisbane City, Queens Plaza. Tucked away in the bottom level food court next to Coles, lies the busy little sanctum of really good Shanganese food. We were greeted and seated almost immediately and, because we had our little Parker-Bear with us, we were given a high-chair. My partner Bart and … Continue reading
