I live by the motto: Keep it fresh – keep it simple – make it yourself. I personally... Read More

My Secret To The Best Cauliflower Cheese

This is a warm and nourishing recipe from my cookbook Purely Delicious. Cauliflower was often served at our Polish dinner table when I was growing up. Mum used to steam it lightly, then sauté in her cast iron pan with day old bread-crumbs and generous amounts of butter. Mum would also make the yummiest Parmesan laced béchamel that she would generously spoon over steamed cauliflower florets, then bake until golden with crispy edges, for the ultimate cauliflower cheese. These... Read More

Does A Gluten Free Diet Make You Healthier?

When I opened my first cafe some years back, I tailored my menu for those with sensitivities to gluten. I baked gluten-free banana bread using almonds and coconut, made gluten free pancakes from buckwheat and chia, and even had a gluten free porridge made with LSA meal, grated apple, cinnamon and sun-dried raisins. Now, when I design recipes for my cookbooks or blog, I still provide substitute ingredients. Personally, I don’t strictly follow a gluten free diet because I’m... Read More

Spelt + Honey Banana Bread

Here is one of my favourite banana breads of all time ! It’s the recipe I developed when I first started my Healthy Chef Cafe in the northern beaches, many years ago. I absolutely love this bread for the wonderful texture and depth of flavour you get when eating it.  This makes a nice change from typical store bought and cafe style banana breads that are generally high in refined white flour, sugar and saturated fats. It’s important to bake this in a slow oven for... Read More

Cashew Cream with Tahitian Vanilla

I make my lush cashew cream on a weekly basis and love to spoon it over seasonal fruits, add to smoothies or fold through my bircher muesli made from apple, blueberry and a hint of cinnamon.
