I have not had time to do much writing as I have been travelling quite a bit , both in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia and not like some of my friends who have been travelling overseas.
I only take my iPad when I travel and writing posts is not something that I find easy on this device.
I am finding that inserting links to recipes that are already on the blog, pretty impossible and if you are interested in some of the recipes, for example about cockles or sea urchins use the search button. I am hoping that the photos are sufficient, but maybe not.
Below are some of the things I have cooked or prepared lately. When one is ‘on the run’ one does not have the luxury of ingredients from home:
Mushrooms braised with saffron, white wine, tomato paste and parsley.
Goolwa cockles cooked with parsley, garlic and a splash of white wine. Parsley yet to be stirred through.
Braised red cabbage cooked in red wine and bay leaves and some smoked pork with whole meal spaghetti .
King George Whiting braised with with lemon slices, fennel seeds and white wine. Fried capers till crisp added at last minute.
Sea urchin roe bought in brine and cooked with braised fennel, anchovies, garlic and chillies in wine, parsley, roe grated lemon rind and lemon juice added right at the very end.
Burrata with basil mayonnaise, soft boiled eggs and a salad of avocado, lettuce, asparagus and baby tomatoes.
