Homemade thyme flatbreads

I wanted to make a new recipe for flatbread with figs & goat cheese, and instead of buying the breads I decided to try and make them myself. I never in a million years expected it to be THIS easy but it really was! I based my recipe on one from Jamie Oliver - my food hero - and turned them into thyme flatbreads as they went better with my…

Nutella & Walnut Filo Cigars

Today's recipe is without a doubt going to be a big hit at any party: Nutella & walnut filo cigars! Crunchy pastry, delicious chocolate core and that little bit of an extra bite thanks to the walnuts. It's somewhat easy to make too and doesn't take a whole lot of time either, but you do have to keep in mind that filo pastry is very thin and very fragile.…

Boiled & pan fried chicken dumplings with enoki mushrooms & a roasted peanut salad with bok choy & Chinese spinach

Boiled & pan fried chicken dumplings with enoki mushrooms & a roasted peanut salad with bok choy & chinese spinach

Back in Europe I would always say that Italian food was my favourite, it's also something you can find quite a lot - but out here in Australia it's Asian food that has stolen my heart. Sushi, dumplings, dim sims, you name it, Australia's got it! My friend from Sydney used to always say to me that the sushi back in Ireland did not even remotely compare to the one…

To kick off the year I've created a delicious taco recipe using a type of fish I had never had before back in Europe: Australian Blue Grenadier. I was inspired by my first visit to the South Melbourne market, where I had some amazing…

Homemade jambons (Irish ham & cheese pastry pockets)

There's no denying there's a lot of Irish in Australia, and although there are a lot of Irish products you can get here (Kerrygold, Clonakilty pudding, ..) there are loads of things they miss when far away from home. Before getting out here myself, my boyfriend had been out here for 2 months already and when I asked him what food he misses most from home, the first thing he…

Whipped feta shortcrust tartlets with strawberry & pistachio

It's hard to believe it's almost Christmas as it's currently 30°C outside here in Melbourne. It's the first time I'll be spending Christmas in a sunny country - and away from my family - and although I'm looking forward to having a barbecue on Christmas for the first time ever, I still find it all so weird to see Christmas decorations everywhere (including a giant blow-up snowman a few houses…

Sausage rolls with cheese

ausage rolls have always been one of my favourite snacks, ever since I was a kid. Once I learned how easy it is to make them yourself, I only ended up loving them even more as it became so easy to add all these amazing flavours. I've previously made a few versions already, for example one with black pudding, apple and cranberry but also plain pork sausage rolls and pork,…
