5 Spice Indian Cuisine

aviary_1461881787291-resized-960.jpg

Indian food is a diverse and rich cuisine that often doesn’t get the full respect it deserves. It is far more than butter chicken, lamb korma, vindaloo and naan bread. There is a vast array of styles and flavours in curries, salads, pilafs, breads and condiments depending on the region of the country you are looking at.

Recipe – Stir Fried Potato with Chilli Sauce

It may not be that pretty, but it sure packs a flavour punch!

The next round of the F1 came around and with Chinese being on the menu, it certainly offered up a great many options. Most interesting though was that none of the ideas that we came up with would appear, more or less, on your typical chinese takeaway list. Yep, no honey chicken or sweet and sour <insert protein> being considered ...

Halloumi and fetta bread rolls

Something that is always a bit of a challenge is coming up with new and interesting things to try. For those that know me, this may sound like a very strange thing to be saying, as there is this misconception that we are always cooking up glorious gourmet feasts and trying new things all the time. This may have once ...

Pho SA

20160411_124126-01-resized-960.jpg

Pho is, for some people, a food group all of its own. On the pyramid I believe it’s located somewhere between the vegetables and dairy. The intricate depth of flavour in the broth, mixed with the textural elements, fresh herbs, noodles, some chilli, served with the (traditionally) raw beef makes for an intoxicating and addictive mix. Its also normally excellent ...

Sit Lo

Courtesy of Instagram, some time late in 2015, I spotted the amazing looking steamed buns from some place called “Sit Lo”. Never heard of it. The buns looked, if you squinted a bit, something that was akin to a burger, and given this blog was Burger Me at the time that was an important link to make.

Conveniently located on Grenfell Street in the city is the CBD outlet for Red Door Bakery. Ok, so convenience really depends on your perspective and starting location, but it met my criteria so that is what I am going with.

Jamaica Blue (Myer Centre)

wpid-20160301_123524-01-resized-800.jpg

I must be honest – the Myer Centre is not somewhere that I frequent on a regular basis. In fact, to state it is ‘not regular’ is to somehow suggest that it happens even occasionally. I cannot remember the last time I actually went in there, and so it is not surprising that when I received an email invitation to ...
