Seasonal Suggestion

Lemon Cordial

This makes a large batch and keeps for ages. Lemons are abundant right now so is a good time learn how to make cordial, it is a truly different and refreshing taste to those you buy in shops, and so easy!

Champagne Poached Strawberries with Rosewater

The Queensland strawberries are sweet right now, and this is a fun way to enjoy them plus the great trick here is the rosewater helps them retain their beautiful colour after poaching.

Recipe of the Week - Daube of Beef

Daube of Beef

There is only a short window through winter to find these special cuts of beef which are perfect for slow cooking - most are exported, yet a few weeks of the year in peak stewing season there is a distribution to butchers in Australia. So now is a good time to try this most decadent of French beef stews - this one is based on the Australia's "nose-to-tail" master- Matthew Kemp of Restaurant Balzac.


Seasonal Suggestion

Jerusalem Artichoke Soup

If you haven't tried this vegetable this is a delicious way to start - it is creamy and nutty and anyone I have cooked this for adores it - you can serve the soup in little coffee mugs as a starter or enjoy it as a main with goat's cheese toast, or even crab sandwiches!

Jerusalem Artichoke Soup - 1kg of J artichokes (look like large ginger) -peel and chop to even size.
In a soup pot, add some butter/olive oil with 1 garlic ,1 onion diced -cook til soft.
Throw in the J artichokes, 1 chopped potato, 1.25 ltrs vegetable stock - bring to boil then simmer covered 25 minutes til veg is tender.
Let cool, process til smooth, warm up in a clean pan, add 100ml cream and season.


Recipe of the Week - Imam Bayildi (The Imam Fainted) Greek Stuffed Eggplant

Imam Bayildi (The Imam Fainted) Greek Stuffed Eggplant

Eggplant is in season now and Greek cuisine embraces it beautifully - as I found when travelling there in 1998 and 2000. There are a few versions of this dish, some with potent amounts of garlic which is the other reason they believe the Imam may have fainted!

My Aunty Lou is a wonderful cook and enjoys trying new dishes, and this one is easy to make, delicious to eat and looks great on the plate with your own little neat package to enjoy.
