Oh, how I love lollipop chops! … aka lamb cutlets 🙂 Tender tasty morsels of lamb from the rib section come with a built in handle, and although they may be the most expensive lamb cut, they are so delicious, they are hard to resist. Easy to grill, chargrill, bbq or pan fry, the main thing to note is that they cook quickly and you do not want to overcook them as they are best served with a pink juicy centre.

RECIPES… for every occasion

Sharing my recipe collection to fellow foodies has always been a pure pleasure and it is even more of a buzz when I hear those magic words…’I made your recipe!’.

So here I invite you to browse through and get inspired by my recipes that I have tried and tested over many years. Some have professional photographs, others just have happy snaps and the rest are simply the recipe itself, from my kitchen to yours.

This is my working recipe database and so new recipes are added all the time – be sure to drop by again to see the latest.

Roasting a whole fish is one of the most fuss free ways of cooking seafood, and this snapper with roasted tomatoes and fresh basil absolutely sings of Summer entertaining.

Rosemary Veal Cutlets

Tasty little veal cutlets with the classic flavours of rosemary and garlic.

Mimi’s Moussaka

This is my recipe for Greek Moussaka that has evolved from my mum's version. This recipe makes two moussaka because it takes some time to prepare and it's worth making double and freezing one. It's a great make ahead recipe to feed many!

Roma…La Dolce Vita

WHERE TO EAT IN ROME When in Italy it is so easy to slip into la dolce vita…particularly when you are immersed in such beautiful, historic centres and surrounded by such good food. Italian life is completely foodcentric, from the morning coffee to the sit down bowl of pasta for lunch, or the slice of […]

#foodstylistlife

Being a food stylist is a curious job. You are at once a designer, a problem solver, a technician and a magician… I returned to the studio for the first time this year, with Louis and Melanie, to produce a project for one of my favourite clients. The process from brief to final image is […]

Gee, it’s good to be back in my own kitchen after six weeks overseas. I realise that I am at my happiest creatively when I am developing a new recipe and translating the flavours and textures I have in my head onto the plate…usually cooking with music on in the background.  Last night, after returning […]
