I love to cook. Seriously love to cook. I’m also serious about good food. Real food.

Feel free to borrow, try or bastardise any of my recipes but if you copy them or publish them elsewhere, credit where credit is due please. All the recipes on this blog are my creation unless otherwise specified.

Another thing to note is that I use a thermomix. I will endeavour to give both the thermomix version and the non-thermomix version of my recipes so anyone can use them. Please note that I am in no way paid by Verwoerk or any subsidiary company to promote the Thermomix.

Amounts used are approximate. Eggs are usually 70g. Temperatures are all in celcius and measurements are always metric. Unless otherwise stated, recipes serve 3 – 4, depending on your serving size.
