Featured Recipes

Pasta Alla Norma

Eggplant, tomatoes, basil, and ricotta salata – these four ingredients are the fundamentals of Pasta Alla Norma, a dish that originated in Catania, a city on Sicily's East coast.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Fritters

These are a fantastic vegetarian fritter that you can use just about any vegetable in, I have also made these with sautéed chopped mushrooms and they taste delicious. They make a great addition to a light dinner, as a starter to have with drinks and ideal for kids for the school lunches as you can mask the vegetables that they may not like.

Peach, Lime and Passionfruit Ginger Beer Ice Blocks

Taking advantage of summer peaches and sweet passionfruit, these Peach, Lime, Passionfruit and Ginger Beer ice blocks are a fantastic snack for a hot summers day. Full of fruit, refreshing and with that iconic Ginger beer flavour, big and little ice block lovers will enjoy these.

Loaded Ginger Jam and Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice-cream Sandwich

Worth every second of effort. These loaded ginger and chocolate chip cookies with a chocolate and ginger ice cream are indulgent and ridiculously scrumptious. The surface of the cookie is full of Buderim Chocolate Ginger chunks, with a creamy delicious smooth ice cream which any one can make.

Crispy Fried Coconut Prawns with Green Papaya salad and Pickled Ginger Chili sauce

Who doesn't love a crispy fried coconut prawn cutlet!  I have to say my combination of flavours for the Green papaya salad and the sticky Pickled Ginger Chili are just delicious, perfect for an entrée, canapé, or starter to a dinner party.

Betel Leaves with Crab Salad, Crispy Noodles, Lime, Ginger Mayonnaise & Salmon roe

One of my favourite entrees when I go out is some sort of deliciousness wrapped up in a betel leaf. My recipe for Betel leaves with crab salad, crispy noodles and a lime and ginger mayonnaise is delicious and if you don't have the betel leaves you can serve this salad in a lettuce leaf, tart shell, or roll it up in rice papers.
