RECIPE DEVELOPMENT

Simple Spiced Dal premium
Last but not least in the Comfort Food project with Kate Flower – Spiced Dal. While I’m an enthusiastic carnivore, I realised that another regular feature on the menu in my household which represents comfort food to me, is dal. It’s quick to prepare, satisfying and warming and you can dress it up as much […]

Upside-down Gingerbread premium
The third in a comfort food collaboration with Kate Flower; my recipe for Upside-down Gingerbread. A wonderful blast from my past, this unassuming-sounding dessert cake is definitely comfort food in my book! Pears and walnuts join hands with brown sugar and butter to form the crowning glory atop a darkly spicy and intensely flavoursome cake. A […]

Mulligatawny Soup premium
Mulligatawny Soup Serves 4 generously There are plenty of opinions about the origins of Mulligatawny, not to mention ways to make it. I’m a big fan of a meal in a bowl and when it’s as good as this – hearty, warming and nourishing – you don’t need anything else other than a few little condiments.

Roasted Peaches with Ginger Crumbs & Orange Mascarpone premium
This delicious dessert (or brunch?) recipe for roasted peaches was made using a particular gingernut biscuit that most New Zealanders will identify with – made extra hard especially for dunking, and advertised with a catchy little tune that’s impossible not to think of if you are “of a certain age”! Of course, if you can’t easily get hold […]
