Rare Beef Salad with Watermelon + Raw Zucchini Noodles

I love this style of food. It’s fast, fresh, light, and packs a punch. This salad has it all. It has crunch from the raw cucumber and garden radish, heat from the red chilli, sweetness from the watermelon, and all-important protein from the beef. A great way to stave off an afternoon sugar-craving meltdown. Enjoy! … Continue reading

Quinoa with Fennel, Tangelo, Avocado + Herbs

When it comes to salads I have one rule – don’t be shy. The possibilities with salads are only limited by your imagination, so if you find yourself with a bowl of limp garden greens I’m awfully sorry but you only have yourself to blame. A great salad has a mixture of textures, a punchy … Continue reading

Cold Smoked Ocean Trout + Peas with Minty Crème Fraiche

When it’s warm outside it’s natural to crave lighter, fresher tasting foods.

I like to keep things simple and eat this scooped straight from the skin, but if you’re … Continue reading
