The dessert of the Summer was most definitely this pavlova...the cherry on the top, so to speak, salted caramel sauce.
Cheese please & that would be homemade mascarpone.
There’s always something here I want to make & these little bay leaf pots de creme sound divine. I love infusing herbal flavours in to sweet.
I baked these & they are quite delicious, chewy, oaty & terribly moreish cookies.
More divine inspiration from Ottolenghi...fettucine with fresh seafood & a green harissa dressing.
And for a bright & fresh nibble & a healthier option to chips & dips...this tapenade & pesto from Tom Kitchin just explode with flavour.
Seeing: Who Shot Rock n Roll at Auckland Art Gallery...any excuse to visit this beautiful space. And you have a few days to catch it if you haven't already. On until 3 March.
Watching: Argo....amazing movie.
Reading: Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants...laugh out loud funny & irreverent, it will brighten your day.
Reading: Isaac Likes....letting a little fashion in to my life all the way from NYC. A Kiwi making good in the Big Apple.
Visiting: Clevedon Farmers Market & quite a haul of deliciousness. The highlight tomatillos alongside heirloom tomatoes, cherries, harissa, sesame brittle, flowers, empanadas & freshly dug spuds.
Making: A little herb garden
Want to go: To the Hobsonville Farmers Market to eat Gourmet Gannet's pork pies, pasties & sausage rolls!
