Pissaladière

Pissaladière is a classic French dish that originated in Nice in the South of France. It is a tart similar to a pizza but the crust is thicker. It is traditionally topped with caramelised onions, olives and anchovies and I have kept to that tradition. You can serve it as an appetiser and I think it is a great dish to serve as a snack to nibble on with drinks.Even if you do not like olives or anchovies. And those…

Mackerel Pate with Quick Pickled Red Onion

This recipe for Mackerel Pate with Quick Pickled Red Onion is one of those minimal effort with maximum flavour and reward dishes. And I think it offers a tasty alternative to the usual salmon pate which appears on all menus over the festive season. Bonus that it is easily made from tinned mackerel and I guarantee no one will guess that it is made with tinned fish. You can be quite flexible and change the sour cream with a smooth…

The search is definitely over with these Polenta Parmesan Roast Potatoes with Rosemary Salt from Donna Hay…

Chocolate Cherry Amaretto and Spelt Fruitcake

I am super happy with this year’s Xmas cake incarnation, a Chocolate Cherry Amaretto and Spelt Fruitcake. It has become a tradition for me to make a different Xmas cake each year and this fruitcake has to be my favourite to date. This cake still plays with the addition of chocolate to the mix which I think elevates a fruitcake to a whole new level but for this year’s version I used spelt flour that I had left over from…

Baked Camembert Focaccia with Honey and Dukkah

Be it cozy festive dinners inside or lazy day barbecues around the pool I do think this Baked Camembert Focaccia with Honey and Dukkah will fit with any occasion you are preparing for. Crusty freshly baked bread with a round of oozy warm camembert in the middle, drizzled with sweet honey and topped with a sprinkle of sea salt and dukkah makes for an impressive snack to…

Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

When NetFlorist sends you doughnuts the logical thing to do is make Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches. Of course you can eat them as is but who would not love Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches? Ice cold, sweet, creamy, doughy pleasure all in one bite. I can’t believe it isn’t a “thing”.   Of course, the easiest way to all that pleasure is to use store bought ice cream but you can make this even more special with homemade ice cream. And…
