Kale and Corn Fritters

Kale & Corn Fritters I really enjoy eating dark leafy greens. I love the texture, the taste and their versatility. My 16 month daughter (I will call her Potpot here from now on), does not share my passion…yet. I see her carefully pick off shreds of wilted kale from other, more desirable, foods on her […]

Zucchini, pea and ricotta salata on sourdough with a soft-boiled egg

Did you know that you can eat corn raw? I remember finding that out only a few years ago when I saw a girl at uni munching her way through a raw corn cob as she kicked back on the grass. What a revelation! I grew up eating corn cobs that went from the bag […]

Superfoods: Do you believe the hype?

Acai berries, Goji berries, wheat grass, chia seeds, pomegranate juice ….
