Christmas Plum & Ginger Chutney

For me, this chutney is Christmas in a jar. The flavour and smell is just so Christmassy, and after years of making this, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without it. But this year, in my eagerness to get ahead and make this a month earlier to really develop the flavours, I managed to completely de-rail […]

Tempura Fried Zucchini Flowers filled with Zesty Chive Goats Cheese

I love Christmas, I love entertaining, catching up with friends and family and enjoying the warmer weather. It is a crazy busy time of year for us, work wise this is the busiest time of the year for our business, which is great in the business sense, but it really cramps my style on the personal […]

Indian Spiced Pork Belly with Rice Pilaf

My family laugh at my “this is the best ever!” statements, I do have a tendency to get a little over enthusiastic about recipes, restaurants, etc, when I like something. I would rather be the person that raves about the great things than be the one that complains about only the bad things…..well that is […]

Dark Chocolate, Honey & Lavender Truffles

Lavender seems to be one of those flavours that you either love or hate. I decided to have a go at coming up with a truffle recipe, and I like lavender, so I gave it a go. I wanted to test them out to make sure other people liked them, so I took them to […]
