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....
Prosciutto & Sage Wrapped Pork Loin with Fig & Fennel Jus

Prosciutto & Sage Wrapped Pork Loin with Fig & Fennel Jus

You may have noticed from previous posts that I am a fan of Broccolini.  That is true, but that is not what this recipe is about.  It is about the tender, lean pork fillet, wrapped in aromatic sage leaves and salty prosciutto, drizzled with a wine rich, sweet, fig and...
Dijon Pork Cutlets with Braised Cabbage

Dijon Pork Cutlets with Braised Cabbage

Food has always been pretty important to me and the memories I take away from what I eat are paramount to my recipe creation.  My Mum used to make a similar braised cabbage when we were kids and I’ve been thinking about it, a lot.  Growing up, we used to have...

Teriyaki Pork Ramen

I thought I had best have a crack at the latest food craze to take Australia by storm.  Japanese Ramen restaurants are popping up left, right and centre and I have to say…….I’m loving it!  It is such clean eating, low in fat, big on flavour and easy...
Pork & Shiitake Dumplings in Shiitake Broth

Pork & Shiitake Dumplings in Shiitake Broth

On a recent trip to Beechworth in Victoria, I had the most gorgeous starter of pork dumplings in broth in a fantastic pub called The Empire Hotel.  It was rich yet light and immensely satisfying, although not too satisfying as I still managed to fit in a 300gm sirloin...
Crispy Pork Belly Bahn Mi

Crispy Pork Belly Bahn Mi

While travelling through Vietnam last year, we took it upon ourselves to try the traditional, Vietnamese street food Bahn Mi, pretty much every chance we got.  The difference between each region was quite astonishing and I realised that there really are no hard and...
Chicken & Chorizo Taco’s

Chicken & Chorizo Taco’s

Gone are the days in the Em’s Food kitchen for Old El Paso Taco kits.  I have discovered a far more healthy and exciting option to feed the hoards.  Again, this is a recipe that uses fresh ingredients and good old pantry staples but does not by any means lack in...
Wasabi Pea Pork with Pea & Radish Salad

Wasabi Pea Pork with Pea & Radish Salad

I have a little obsession with Japanese inspired food at the moment.  I just love the fresh, clean and zesty flavours of wasabi and pickled ginger and I am also a tad partial to crumbed meat.  You may not think it is the healthiest option but if your oil is at the...
Beef & Pork Rissoles with ‘Loaded’ Gravy

Beef & Pork Rissoles with ‘Loaded’ Gravy

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but I am rather a big fan of food.  All food.  However, given the opportunity, it is the old fashioned classics that I really love, particularly when I bring them up to date with a whopping makeover.  Rissoles were a staple...
Potato, Grilled Corn & Ham Hock Chowder

Potato, Grilled Corn & Ham Hock Chowder

We don’t eat an enormous amount of potatoes in our house so when I came home from our recent trip to Vietnam to discover a whole bag of them in the pantry that our house sitters had left, I just knew I couldn’t let them go to waste.  I was also absolutely...
Sweet & Sour Pork Spare Ribs with Cucumber & Mint Salsa

Sweet & Sour Pork Spare Ribs with Cucumber & Mint Salsa

I reckon these babies, Pork Spare Ribs,  are the unsung hero of the meat department.  Luckily the restaurants don’t seem to have cottoned on so they are still well within budget (unlike pork belly and lamb shanks) and are really easy to cook with.  I’m...
Italian Sausage, Wild Mushroom & Chianti Risotto

Italian Sausage, Wild Mushroom & Chianti Risotto

Don’t be fooled by the fancy title of this dish as really, the dish couldn’t be more simple.  Butcher quality Italian pork sausages were the inspiration and what better pairing than the earthy flavour of a combination of dried and fresh mushrooms.  A rich,...
