Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls

Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls

This is a brilliant pulled pork recipe showcasing the unsung hero of the pork community in my book, pork shoulder. I threw this in the pressure cooker for an hour and out it came, literally falling apart, ready to be paired with any Mexican style...
Roast Pork Loin with Baked Pears & Onions

Roast Pork Loin with Baked Pears & Onions

So with winter coming to an end, as much as I am looking forward to eating fresh, light and often exciting Summer food, I go into a bit of a panic mode and feel the need to cook just one more roast, or stew, or ragu. Almost like it is my last meal (God forbid) and I...
Thai Pork & Peanut Curry

Thai Pork & Peanut Curry

There is a really old recipe on the website that I have been making for years, Thai Peanut Chicken with Coconut Rice. It is one of my Son, Jake’s favourites and is super easy and perfect for busy weeknights. Whenever I make it , there is enough paste to freeze...
Pork Mee Goreng

Pork Mee Goreng

I am a firm believer that adapting a recipe from its traditional version is what cooking is all about. It is how food evolves and improves and while there is nothing quite like the original, a new take is always a welcome change. Change is good. My version of Pork Mee...
Porchetta with Fennel, Pancetta & Sage

Porchetta with Fennel, Pancetta & Sage

A true Porchetta is a boned and rolled suckling pig, stuffed with flavourings such as its own offal, fennel and herbs and then cooked over a fire pit. Not so this one as A. I didn’t have a suckling pig and B. I am not Italian and this is purely an Em’s...
Pumpkin, Sage & Prosciutto Risotto

Pumpkin, Sage & Prosciutto Risotto

I absolutely adore making Risotto. There is something so therapeutic about the cooking process, the gradual adding and stirring that I find totally relaxing. I always set myself up with the ingredients prepped and ready so that I am not caught out at the last minute...
Vietnamese Bun Cha

Vietnamese Bun Cha

I have been meaning to make an Em’s Food version of this delightful Street style Vietnamese Meatball Salad ever since I visited Vietnam in 2017. What the hell have I been waiting for? This was so damn good, super duper easy and so refreshingly light that I was...
Warm Salad of Pork, Figs & Blue Cheese

Warm Salad of Pork, Figs & Blue Cheese

There are many marriages in the food world that border on perfection and this marriage of Figs & Blue Cheese is absolutely no exception. I had a bunch of figs in the fridge and it took me days to decide what I wanted to do with them until friends arrived with a...
Spicy Peanut Pork Fillet with Noodles & Asparagus

Spicy Peanut Pork Fillet with Noodles & Asparagus

I have discovered that one way to be inspired in the kitchen is to purchase different types of meat, pop it in the freezer and then peruse magazines and cook books and google recipes until I can come up with something blog-worthy. This is exactly how this Pork Fillet...
Rich Mushroom Ragu with Pappardelle

Rich Mushroom Ragu with Pappardelle

I am sitting at my computer, looking at this image, drooling and wondering how I am going to get through writing this recipe without hitting the fridge for some kind of sustenance to eliminate the watery mouth feeling I have from a severe case of wanting. This was so...
Pork, Pumpkin & Bean Laksa

Pork, Pumpkin & Bean Laksa

Phwoar…..this was good. So good that my Husband declared it the best meal I have ever cooked. I’m not sure I would go quite that far but the aromatic, spicy, homemade paste with slow cooked pork, sweet pumpkin and fresh crunchy beans did raise the bar...
Summer Sausage Tray Bake

Summer Sausage Tray Bake

When we had our firstborn son, my Husband was in his first year of a pretty demanding five year degree. Being the poor Uni student family that we were, I had to get creative with cooking and that is probably where a large portion of my love of cooking came from....
