Vegetables with coriander and hazelnut pesto

I don’t cook enough vegetarian dishes so today I thought I would give it a go. To get inspired I went to the green grocer and bought all of the vegetables that inspired me. I did think about a vegetable curry but wanted to make something I had never done before. I ended up with … Continue reading

Steak with truffle honey roasted cauliflower and quiche

I had a bunch of random stuff hanging around the fridge from the holidays. I was left with an almost whole Camembert cheese, celery, cream, a bunch of eggs, fresh herbs and shortcrust pastry.

Wild rocket pesto and chunky tofu

I was after a light and vegetarian dinner. I didn’t have anything in mind and I wanted something loaded with flavour and goodness that would still keep me full for a long time.

Lobster with chilli flavored goats butter on a tofu puff

A friend of ours, M, moved to Singapore a while back and I was so excited as she was coming home to visit! I wanted to cook lots of nice foods and decided to buy seafood. We went to the market and had a look around town. Saturdays are always busy on the high street … Continue reading

Tomatillo and spinach pesto

I am usually not hungry at all in the morning but the other day I woke up hungry! I went to Whole Foods on my way to work to get a yogurt and some fruit for the day. I soon realized this was a bad idea as I got sidetracked by just about everything. I … Continue reading
