We spent last Easter at the Seacliff Farm – Wilton House in Gerrigong and had so much food-nomming fun that we thought we should do it all again this year.
I’ve come to realise that Linda is the Queen of Themed Parties… and I’m startled to find that I’m really warming up to this dressing up business! I definitely moan less about having to think of a costume now – especially when I heard about what Linda’s got planned for our Easter break (already!).
Sydney is going through a purple patch of new bars and restaurants. A slew of younger chefs are opening up restaurants and cooking food which is in their comfort zones but at the same time ...
When we heard that a friend had quit his job to become a chef (starting at his significant other’s brother’s newly opened restaurant), we figured it would be the perfect location for our next catch up session.
Vietnam, hands down the best street food I’ve encountered so far on my overseas travels. There, I said it. In saying that, I’ve only traveled through South East Asia so far so I might be proven wrong on my future endeavours. Until then, I’ll show you what I ate throughout my massive one week trip to Vietnam.
Hai Au, it’s one of my favourite Vietnamese restaurants for more authentic Vietnamese food. You won’t find pho or crispy skin chicken here, you’ll find crabs stir fried in tamarind sauce, caramalised fish in claypots and charcoal grilled meat and seafood. It’s worth the treck to the South West if you can’t see yourself in Vietnam anytime soon.
Seeing Pho pop up as this month’s Daring Cooks challenge gave me a little thrill, I always thought that Pho would be an exhausting, time consuming exercise that would result in a sub-par results, luckily only one of these things were true! We were given the choice of Pho Ga (Chicken based stock) or Pho Tai (traditional beef stock with rare meat), I of course chose the beef option.
