Miranda Westfield Cooking Demo + Recipes!

Today we were at Miranda Westfield doing a super fun cooking demo! It was sort of Asian inspired, with succulent duck, coriander and for a pop of summer – watermelon! A lot of people were asking for the recipes, so if you were one of them, please see below (you might even spot yourself in one of our photos)! Duck and Watermelon salad: Ingredients: 2 duck breasts ¼ cup coriander ¼ cup mint 100g watermelon 1 large red chilli 2 eshallots 1 tbs crushed peanuts   Method: Slice duck into small pieces. In a large bowl mix lychees, mint and coriander leaves Slice watermelon into small pieces, slice eschallots and julienne red chilli. Mix all ingredients together. Dressing: 4 green chillies 1 knob ginger 2 eshallots 2 cloves of garlic 20ml fish sauce 3 coriander roots 50g palm sugar pinch white pepper Juice of 8 limes. Method: In a mortar and pestle pound chilli, garlic, ginger, eschallots and coriander root until a fine paste has formed. Add palm sugar and pound until sugar has dissolved. Add lime juice. Season with fish sauce, added small amounts and tasting until desired balance is achieved. This is a lovely summery salad, and it went down such a treat today! Prawn and Chorizo Skewers with Chimchurri Ingredients. Peeled & deveined green prawns 2 chorizos small bunch parsley, roughly chopped ½ tsp oregano, fresh or dried 2 garlic cloves 1 shallot, chopped ½ tsp chilli flakes 2½ tbsp olive oil juice ½ lemon 2 tsp red wine vinegar   Method.: Thread prawns and chorizo onto skewers, alternating down the stick.

How to Make a Smashing Pav

Nothing really says Christmas dessert quite like a good pav. Most recipes are similar, but we think it’s all about the toppings. With such a range of things you can add to something simple like the humble pavlova, it’s really just a matter of imagination. Chocolate? Sure! Fruit? Obviously. Coconut and pineapple? Yum! But here’s our recipe to get you started! Ingredients: 8 egg whites 2 tbs cornflour 1 tbs vinegar 2 cups caster sugar Toppings: 600ml thickened cream (we used strawberries, fresh passionfruit and kiwi fruit but mix it up!) Method: Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and preheat oven to 115°C Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly rain in the sugar, a little at a time, whisking continuously until stiff peak form. You should be able to hold the bowl upside down over your head without the mixture falling out! Now add cornflour and vinegar, mix through to combine well. Gentle spoon mixture into a circle (or square/log/etc) and using a palette knife shape the pavlova as you like, then place in the oven for one hour and fifty minutes, checking occasionally. Once cooked, allow to cool while you prepare the cream and toppings, which is the fun bit! Check out the pictures below for some ideas.   (all images via pinterest)    ...

Christmas Food Inspiration

So much has happened in the past year, and in light of recent events, we’d just like to extend our thoughts and prayers to the people of Lebanon, France and everyone else affected by these barbaric atrocities. It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since terror was on our own doorstep. But while the world can sometimes be an awful place, it’s important to find the good in it too. As you know, we love any occasion to celebrate and make food (obviously). Here are some of the Christmas dishes we’re currently drooling over…   What do you have on Christmas Day with your family? Are you a turkey or ham lover? Or is seafood more your thing? We’d love to know! But the more serious question is… pavlova or trifle? *all images via...
