I understand your happiness. I got a $3 block of Cadbury Marble.
AND IIIIIIIII WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOOOUUUUU!
That awkward moment when waiting for someone who is late, forces you into buying pointless nourishment…
I’m glad I was late to see L’Art d’aimer at the French Film Festival because these nourishments were delicious.
Spaghetti con aglio, olio e peperoncino eccetera (Spaghetti with garlic, olive oil and chilli etc).
This recipe is a personal favourite of mine and it’s super easy. It’s a bit of a take on a recipe by Maurizio Esposito, found in Maeve O’Meara’s Food Safari cookbook. Instead of just the garlic, olive oil and chilli (which is delicious on its own) I bulk it up with some mushrooms, capsicum and bacon.
This dish is great when you’re in a rush, low on ingredients or just feel like a light easy meal. I prefer it in summer with a glass of red and a generous slice of pana di casa or any thick crusted loaf.
Oh, and make sure you cook enough for seconds!
(not really) sorry about the self promotion but my food blog is back up and running. My cookbooks are all bookmarked, kitchen is a mess and my drafts folder is filling up with new posts and future ideas. I’d love some feedback, or some new ideas for posts whether they be certain dishes, personal recommendations or mini-reviews!
I really do plan to stay on top of it all now because for the moment I’ve finished with uni and haven’t started working full time, so I have no excuse except for my own laziness. Plus, talking at food happens to be one of my specialties.
Tried out this recipe the other day and it was a huge success.
I have a fear of undercooking chicken, especially when covered in a dark marinade, so I might have left it on the stove for a little too long. With two fussy brothers who wouldn’t eat the greens suggested in Nigella’s original recipe, I had to make a few changes. Instead of bok choy I substituted shredded lettuce and cucumbers on top of a generous serve of sushi rice, which made for a refreshing summer dish. Broccolini might go nicely as well, cooked separately with some olive oil and pine nuts.
The sesame seeds were a personal addition more for presentation that flavour, but they do add a nice finishing touch.
Hey guys, I’m going to try and revive my food blog (rumblingdaniel) by posting pictures and commentary on the dishes I make. It’s bound to stay very simple: iPhone shots in the moments before gluttony takes over and I devour the dish and notes about the difficulty of cooking (or eating) it.
This new limited edition Australian Afternoon Tea is actually pretty nice.
Want to buy this because of reasons.
At Gary Mehigan’s restaurant ‘Fenix’. After food like this, I don’t know how I can return to eating like a commoner. (Taken with instagram)
I just wish the lighting was better so I could have taken pictures of all the dishes. In addition to a nice shiraz and my dish of chicken (and prosciutto) with corn custard, charred baby corn, raisins and spiced oil pictured above we also had:
- Grilled baby octopus with Moroccan lamb sausage and mint
- Braised (for two days) short rib with celeriac remoulade and tarragon mustard
- Crispy baby calamari with harrisa aioli
- Lamb shoulder with sweet onions, garlic and roast kipflers
- American chop steak (mix of fine meats) with onion marmalade and grilled bone marrow
- Confit salmon with avocado puree, tomato gazpacho and Bloody Mary sorbet
Then we couldn’t choose a dessert and decided it was probably because we were already quite full. However, with two 21st birthday celebrants on the table the staff brought out two complimentary slices of passion fruit tart with ‘Happy 21st Birthday’ written in Swedish chocolate ganache. After one bite we decided we could definitely squeeze just that little more in.
I know this is an extraordinarily long post just about food but fine-dining is such an extraordinary experience and despite the bill at the end (which luckily I wasn’t paying) it’s something I strongly suggest everyone tries … or at least those that love their food.
Someone please bring me this. It’s my birthday …
Addicted to Nigella Lawson’s Christmas episodes. Actually just addicted to all Nigella Lawson episodes.

Watching endless Nigella Lawson recipe videos seems like a valid life decision in my final (ever) week of uni.
