Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck? I get questions from a large number of people about the secrets to making a consistently good coconut yogurt that is tangy and thick and that doesn’t separate. My method is EASY and I get a perfect batch every time. You don’t need any fancy equipment and you don’t even need to have probiotic capsules on hand. This method uses leftover coconut yogurt which you […]

  Photography by my lovely friend Virginia Woods-Jack I get mighty excited about making bread. It is my favourite fermented food and I never tire of watching the dough rise slowly throughout the day or the smell it creates during baking. I love how unique each loaf is when it is finished baking and pulled from the oven. Over the past couple of years I have slowly saved up and purchased a few bread-making tools […]

Image © Victoria Vincent Photography Ginger beer is one of the easiest and low maintenance naturally fermented drinks and, in my opinion, rather fun to make (science geek right here). The flavour is intensely beautiful to boot! I prefer to make my own because I can reduce the sugar content while maintaining that great flavour. But my favourite part is being able to add different combinations of fruits, herbs and spices to the mix when it […]

This is one of the tastiest curry dishes and it is on the menu for dinner this week. The browned onions add a rich flavour and pair beautifully with the tomato and tang of the kokum. It is also easy and quick to make and friendly for people who eat a vegetarian or solely plant-based diet. I often make a mung bean dahl (recipe coming soon) and basmati rice to go with it. Slow-rise spelt […]

I have to thank my fabulous neighbours for introducing me to these delicious cheesy poofs. These cheese balls are best when eaten a few minutes after they come out of the oven, however, my son still loves them a few hours later in his school lunch. The dough can be made in advance and frozen into balls ready to be baked from frozen when needed.

Do you ever have one of those months where you lose all inspiration in the kitchen and can’t be arsed with making dinner? That has been me for the past few months. Life gets busy and meal times definitely suffer (hence the absence from the blog). This is a dish that I make when our lives become a bit full-on. It tastes so good and uses a minimal amount of dishes. I usually pair it […]
