Egg yolk ravioli with beef jam, bavette steak and avocado salsa

Egg yolk ravioli with beef jam, bavette steak and avocado salsa

It has been a bit of a week, it started off challenging but got better as the week proceeded. By Wednesday I try to have a plan for the market on Saturday of what to bring and what pastas to make. This week I thought I would follow a friends suggestion and make a display … Continue reading

Crispy, roasted duck with miso and coconut curry

A small mountain of meatballs & mash with Chocolate Delice for dessert

I am at it again, baking that is. I have devised a strategy, baking without flour. I know it is sort of cheating (?) but it is a start for a non baker like myself. Like cooking, baking gives me time to think. I know I am not always the most sharing person when it … Continue reading

Beef burger with pomegranate salsa, carrot slaw and butternut fries

I knew when I woke up that I wanted a burger for dinner. This was my first thought after checking the weather. I am not sure why or how this would be related (it might be the grey and cold day outside but the thought of a burger popped up in my head. I usually … Continue reading
