Just Falafel, Central Station

Just Falafel, Central Station | Recipes | Scoop.it
Tammi Kwok's insight:

Falafels can often be left as an afterthought. It’s that dish that people serve up when the thought, “oh, I forgot about the vegetarians” comes up.

But falafels are can be delicious morsels in their own right, and when you have an eatery called “Just Falafels”, then I would expect delicious morsels all the way around.

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills | Recipes | Scoop.it

I was super excited when my friend Yina said that she was visiting me from Singapore – we’ve known each other since we were 13, been through all the awkward teenage years and it’s been awhile since I’ve moved to Australia. So when she suggested a trip together to Devon Cafe in scenic Surry Hills, I knew that it was going to be an afternoon of food and laughter, just like the old times.

Couple that with truffles? We were ready for some winter bling!

Only one more week to go to Mothers’ Day!!!! Any celebration for women seem to involve breakfasts in bed – I know my dad and I have tried on and off over the years – and I was inspired byCinco De Mayo (which is today! Happy Cinco de Mayo guys!) to share this mexican breakfast –Huevos Rancheros.

 

Huevos Rancheros refers to a breakfast dish that originated on Mexican farms. Loosely translated, it means “ranch eggs”, and is usually sever with a tomato based sauce.

Mini Scotch Eggs

Mini Scotch Eggs | Recipes | Scoop.it

Ever since the Beak and Sons launch I attended the other week, I had sausages sitting in my fridge, and really, we all know I don’t just eat them straight if I had a choice. =)
Inspired by one of the canapés we had that night, I decided scotch eggs were in order.

Chewy Cookies in a Food Processor

Chewy Cookies in a Food Processor | Recipes | Scoop.it

I love cooking with kids, but with no kids of my own, I only ever get the opportunity when I visit my cousin in Melbourne. These kids are a ravenous pair, and I’m such a proud aunt for it. But I know that as much as cooking with kids is really fun, it can be time consuming and messy, and often is left in the ‘too hard’ basket.

 

So why not use the appliances we have at our disposal? The food processor is my best friend in the kitchen, and these chewy cookies are my new favourite thing to make.

Homemade Chai Latte

Homemade Chai Latte | Recipes | Scoop.it

One of my favourite things in winter is a hot, steaming cup of tea. Now I’m the type of person to wear a tank top right until it’s absolutely freezing, so there’s only a small window of cold where I can truly enjoy a hot cuppa.

 

So in celebration of the cold, I decided to make a steaming, creamy pot of chai.

Man Soup

Man Soup | Recipes | Scoop.it

I think that it’s entirely appropriate that my first bowl of  Man Soup was made by a man. I had a bad case of the cold, and was holed up under the covers feeling incredibly sorry for myself. I swear my life was flashing before my eyes, and I was absolutely starving, but wasn’t feeling up to cooking at all.

 

Enter the Man Soup – the modern man’s answer to sustenance, and bonus points if it’s made for a woman suffering from the man-cold!

Moo Palo on Rice Noodles (Thai Pork and Mushroom Stew)

Moo Palo on Rice Noodles (Thai Pork and Mushroom Stew) | Recipes | Scoop.it

Winter weather puts me in the mood for noodles. There’s just something insanely comforting about soft silky noodles steeped in soup or a stew, soaking up all that beautiful flavour.

I absolutely fell in love with Tanoonmai’s Bangkok Steamed Noodles when I went the other day, but unfortunately, Chatswood isn’t right next door to me, and sometimes you gotta listen when that craving strikes!

Panini Con Polpette (Meatball Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo)

Panini Con Polpette (Meatball Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo) | Recipes | Scoop.it

A basic red sauce is so versatile. Just tweaking aromatics and spices can turn it into a sauce from almost any culture. And it’s not only a culinary chameleon, it’s also freezer friendly!

So when I had a tub of red sauce defrosting in my fridge, I just knew that I had to do something different with it – I had already made lasagne and spaghetti bolognese, so what about meatballs?

Given that we had been eating a lot of pasta, I knew that I didn’t want to have meatballs over more pasta. So, inspired by the smells coming from the local bakery, we decided that meatball subs were in order!

Ash E Reshteh (Persian Noodle Soup)

Ash E Reshteh (Persian Noodle Soup) | Recipes | Scoop.it

Ash E Reshteh is traditionally served during the Persian new year – the first day of Spring. This thick green soup is made hearty with beans and reshteh (a Persian noodle), and topped with kashk, a thick fermented yoghurt. Here, I’ve substituted some of the ingredients to things more easily obtainable in Sydney, but feel free to visit your local Persian shop for the more authentic fare

Jollof Rice

Jollof Rice | Recipes | Scoop.it
Tammi Kwok's insight:

I was researching party recipes lately, and I’ve come to learn that African dishes differ greatly. I guess I should have know, being an Asian and all, but it didn’t really click. Maybe it’s because African cuisine is not as documented, exported, and prolific, but there’s definitely a great wide area there to explore.

My Chermoula Fish

My Chermoula Fish | Recipes | Scoop.it

This particular marinade came from a hodge podge of influences. I had picked up a basic chermoula recipe from a chef I had worked with – coriander, garlic, paprika – and started adding my own variations based on ingredients that I’ve had at home. The result might not be the most authentic Chermoula, but it certainly has become a family favourite!

Leftover Pie

Leftover Pie | Recipes | Scoop.it

Leftovers. Both a blessing and a curse, they can be the most convenient thing in your fridge, or that tub of mystery meat that you don’t want to throw out but you’re absolutely tired of eating.

 

Enter pies: one tool in the modern cook’s arsenal to repurpose just about everything that you can throw in it. Just sandwich it between layers of puff pastry and call it a pie!

 

And what is that? Creamy cheese sauce? Why I think I will, thank you very much.
