Whole Orange Almond Mini Cakes with Orange Syrup

Whole Orange & Almond Mini Cakes with Orange Syrup

Winter may not be my favourite season, but the one thing I do love about it is the abundance of juicy oranges. We’ve been having fresh squeezed juice every day, lots of Orange & Fennel salad and of course, Orange & Almond Syrup cake. I love this recipe, when you boil the whole oranges it perfumes the kitchen with a…

Asian Chicken and corn soup

Asian Style Chicken + Corn Soup

Mention Chinese Chicken & Corn soup to anyone growing up in the 80s and they may have flashbacks of gluggy cornflour thickened soup that may or may not have looked like slime.

Mexican grilled corn recipe

Best Ever Mexican Grilled Corn

The first time I experienced the flavour explosion that is Mexican Grilled Corn, my attitude to corn on the cob was changed forever.

Watermelon, Feta & Pomegranate Summer Salad
