Hello :) How are we all? I've been keeping busy back at uni (third year already!), working & making sure I take time out as well. The first few cooler days of Autumn had me cooking lots of root veggies, however, with this recent summer resurgence, salads and lighter dishes have taken my interest. Here are some of my meals of late, being always inspired by the farmers' markets and seasonal produce.
Radicchio has to be the prettiest vegetable. I used some leaves as a base for this salad, which also included green apples, haloumi (which I must eat everyday), pecans & basil.
Last night I made dumplings, with free range pork mince, ginger, garlic & shallots.
My little babies before they were boiled. I'm not entirely sure if this is how you fold them, so perhaps next time I should try some other fancy folding techniques...
A typical lunch at uni. Steamed potato is a new, exciting addition. As salads don't tend to fill me up for long (& I worry about bringing meat), I make sure I have lots of snacks like cheese/crackers, fruit, nuts etc. Does anyone have other filling snack ideas? I'm always looking for some.
Fresh bread, feta, sundried tomatoes, parsley, a good book & afternoon light.
Loved this eggplant curry with injera (from work).
Rye soda bread from Heidi Swanson. I must expand my bread repertoire, but for now I am loving this loaf.
Perfect with butter & marmalade.
Has anyone been to the Real Food pop up shop in Newtown (on Enmore road, just down from Oportos) yet? I think it's awesome (you might remember my previous post from their last shop) & showcases some fabulous local products from small businesses.
Well, after buying a baguette today, it only seemed fitting I bought some fancy butter to accompany it. Real Food stock this Pepe Saya butter & I'm already addicted...
Don't mind if I do have several slices...
p.s. Just a reminder you can find me in between posts on my instagram: hfong14. I do rather love it, seeing everyones foodie snaps is inspiring & fun!
