Pickled Cucumber Slices

Ok, so get this: I’ve been planning to take T and part of my family to Australia for quite some time. And when we were finally ready to leave, my creepy super ego whispered to me “Psst!!…

Crispy Chicken Skin Butter

As part of my anniversary bonanza (I kinda hate that word but nothing else seems to say “it’s party time and there’s free 80s cocktails for everyone” quite like bonanza) I’ll be splurting out a whopping three posts in one day so get seated, there’s more to come. Such as the bread companion above: Crispy-Chicken-Skin-Butter (yup – that’s what I choose to call this treat. Get used to it!).

Grissini Sticks

You know how when you have guests over for dinner and you’re trying frantically to finish up in the kitchen?

Sweet Pickled Red Onions

There’s just nothing like sharing a great roast with the whole family. But let’s be honest, the roast alone won’t do. Without the right condiments, eating meat can end up being a very bland experience: Brown, grey and red-ish grey. So try this out as a little splash of colour on the plate. And when these babies are done, you will have replaced the pungent onionyness with a sweet pink flavour and colour. They go perfectly with lamb, poultry, game, roasts in general and can easily sex up a sandwich of left-overs. Have you tried piling up the cutlets from yesterday’s roast on an Italian bread roll along with some chilimayo, tomatoes, pickled red onions, fresh cilantro etc? Well now’s your chance.

Crispyfied Home Fries

Finally I cracked the secret code, not of home made gold, no, but of home fries. Yes sir. After many years of slicing, dicing, boiling, frying, baking and deep frying potatoes with more or less the same flacid result (I like my fries to stay crispy, please) I cracked it. It was only a matter of combining two pieces of information that had been scattered in my brain for years:
