Paella.

Paella.

Edward and I made Paella today. Edward lived in Spain last year, and he asked one of the teachers from the school he worked at to teach him how to make paella. He wrote the recipe down in Spanish, so there was a bit of […]

A day in the Dandenongs.

Edward wanted to see some wildlife. So I thought we would head out to the Dandendongs and wander around in the national parks, check out some of the cute towns scattered amongst the rainforest backdrop, and walk the 1000 steps Kokoda Track. We didn’t see […]

A Persian Feast.

A Persian Feast.

I’ve been blessed with some incredible friends in Melbourne. What’s more, most of them join me in my passion for good food. They have been more than willing to initiate me into the cuisines of their home countries, by cooking me their favourite dishes, or […]
