Chocolate Truffle Tart with Frosted Blueberries

Stripping back a traditional recipe and giving it a new a look, taste, and feel is something I particularly enjoy, not least this simple and elegant tart, which took me a number of weeks and over 10 blocks of premium dark chocolate to get just right. This is not like your typical chocolate truffle tart … Continue reading

Honey-Grilled Grapefruit with Yoghurt, Pistachios + Cacao Nibs

  Following on from my citrus-centric recipe last week – the highly addictive and delicious Lemon Curd Croissants – I thought I’d share one of my favourite breakfasts featuring the Queen of the Citrus, the beautiful and bittersweet ruby red grapefruit.

Blood Orange + Chocolate Tart

My Blood Orange and Chocolate Tart is an ode to all things fresh, lovely and carefree. Seeing a pyramid of deep red, shiny-skinned blood oranges at the market the other day I couldn’t help but swoon. The smell, the texture, the colour – it was pure sensory overload and I had to, I just had … Continue reading

Made using a blend of flours and nut meals, organic dark chocolate and homemade almond milk caramel, this is a naughty but nice, caramel-packed, crusty-edged, chocolate brownie. There is quite a bit of natural cane sugar in this recipe, but hey… we all need a little sweetening up now and again, right? ½ cup natural … Continue reading

Chocolate + Coconut Mud Cake

Natasha Mason is one of those incredibly talented, positive and enthusiastic people I feel lucky to know. It has been a few years since she was yelling stroke numbers from the riverbank as I pulled the oars through the water but I’m happy to say she is still cheering me on. She’s an inspired cook … Continue reading

Chocolate Brownies with Salted Peanut Caramel Sauce

A wickedly dark, impossibly decadent and ridiculously good chocolate brownie recipe, my Chocolate Brownies with Salted-Peanut Caramel Sauce are right in so many ways. Rich chocolate flavour, moist fudgy centre, and drizzled with sweet and salty peanut caramel – this is certainly a ‘sometimes’ sweet treat, but one that is truly worth each gloriously chocolaty … Continue reading
