This Filipino classic is one of Mr Black’s favourite dishes, and mine as well. I absolutely adore vinegar – as a child I would drink leftover dressing straight from my salad bowl. If you love vinegar, you’ll love adobo! Best of all it’s dead simple to make, perfect for either a midweek dinner or an easy party dish.
For me, the hardest time eating low-carb/low-GI is at breakfast. My usual breakfast involves leftovers of some kind, but occasionally I need something a bit more traditional. These little breakfast ‘bites’ are really simple to make and keep well for a few days once cooked.
A ‘recipe’ as such isn’t really needed. You just need a non-stick muffin/cupcake tin, one egg per hole, and something to make them taste delicious… Continue reading
Relatively new to Marrickville is Cornersmith, which epitomises all the lovely aspects of the inner west cafe culture. They make their own sauces, cordial, jams, pickles, conserves, etc. using local produce sourced from friends and the general public. And honey from their own bees! Continue reading
Maybe it’s because I’ve lived in countries where people are starving to death in the street. Maybe it’s simply because I have a healthy respect for food. Either way, I detest eating competitions. They make me feel a bit… ashamed.
When there are people in the world with not enough to eat, it feels so wrong to watch people shoving food into their mouths as fast as they can, beyond the point of fullness, sometimes until they are physically ill, for no other purpose than to “win” a competition.
Am I the only one who feels this way? Continue reading
Awesome. Continue reading
So I haven’t posted for a while – life has been getting busier! As a result I suspect this year’s blogs will mostly be home delivered food and/or familiar homecooked favourites, including my ultimate all-time favourite food ‘mut jup mun gai yik’ (honey soy chicken wings) and my mum’s osso buco recipes, as requested!

Having just purchased our first home in Dulwich Hill, Mr Black and I have been very keen to explore the area’s food offerings.
I’ve been to Sideways a few times over the years but this weekend we ventured there for Saturday. Not feeling the best after struggling with a virus and/or cold for a week, I craved nourishment, which came in the form of Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. Rich, I know, but it was low-carb (minus the muffin which went to Mr Black), protein dense and really very good. Perfect eggs make me shake my fists in excitement like Wallace from Wallace and Gromit. Continue reading
I’ve been to Kammadhenu many times over the years, and I’ve always been impressed by the food and blown away by the value. The service can be erratic but it’s always friendly, and when you’re paying $15 a person for delicious food I can deal with waiting a little longer for the bill/glasses/whatever. Continue reading
Shopping in Campsie the other day, Mr Black and I needed a food fix. We headed to the nearest busy-looking dive we could find – Van Loi. Or, as it’s called on Urbanspoon, Van Loc. As far as I can tell they are one and the same place! Continue reading
