out of the frying pan: roast carrot, green lentil and tomato salad with haloumi

I remember a time growing up when I was under the impression that the only available ingredients for bulking up or basing a meal around were rice and pasta, or the occasional boiled, baked or mashed potato. They were certainly the most readily available means in the nineties for making a meal go a little…

restaurant review: bay tihn, the vapas experience

Freya Dumas
No comments

I previously reviewed Bay Tihn, a Vietnamese restaurant located in the Sydney suburb of Crow’s Nest. Whilst I enjoyed the food, I lamented the fact that while everything on the menu sounded incredible, it was difficult to sample a range if you were only attending with one other person. So, you can imagine my delight…

a yummy substitute for maccas: pasta with smoked salmon and broccoli

No comments

There are two things I try to do when cooking. The first is to try to cram as many nutrients into the dish as possible (there are some delightful exceptions, Bacon Pasta being the one that springs to the front of my mind) and the second, to cook a massive amount. The first criteria came…

BangBang 113 Reservoir Street, Surry Hills - Map 3.66 ‘Speedy service meets disco decor’ Well hello, BangBang. I like your less-is-more attitude to decor. You have snare drums for seats, big wooden communal tables, disco themed walls, milk bottles for water jugs and light globes hanging from the ceiling. And despite the simple furnishings, your menu…

I often find that some of the best dishes are the ones you don’t have to screw around with – nothing but good, fresh ingredients and a little heat, allowing them to be delicious on their own merit. There’s a mentality towards food that you see in a lot of Greek and Italian recipes where…

a yummy substitute to maccas : Chicken in White Wine and Garlic Sauce

I really love garlic. In fact, I think it may be the perfect food. I was at a friend’s place the other day perving on their bookshelves (I can’t seem to help myself – this always happens when I go to people’s houses) and came across a book entirely devoted to the wonders of garlic,…

I was lucky enough to be invited to a menu tasting night at Puntino Trattoria, a gorgeous Italian restaurant in Woolloomooloo. After running late from work and taking a wrong turn or five, I finally arrived to the homely and light-filled restaurant, and was promptly greeted with a smile and an offer of a wine….

I’ve heard it said a few times that there a two different kinds of people in this world: cooks and bakers. I don’t believe this is entirely true, and I know a number of people who are magnificent at both. I, however, definitely fall into the former category. Most of the people I know who…

healthy bytes: to market, to market!

Ruby Mahoney

Back before the development of franchise supermarkets and hypermarkets, people visited open-air markets to buy their fresh produce. Butchers, farmers and bakers set up stalls and sold their wares by the kilogram. Nowadays, in the midst of online shopping and pre-packaged meals, markets still draw large crowds. Try visiting the Queen Victoria Market on the…

I understand that the main function of food is to provide adequate nourishment for the body. This is extremely important; without good food one’s quality of life is severely diminished. Therefore ingesting a variety of delicious fresh produce into one’s body is a fabulous thing to do for oneself. However! There are the occasional instances…

The milder cousin to food allergies, a food intolerance is a mild chemical reaction in the body that causes mild discomforts such as headaches, nausea or sweating. Common…
