  • horror trifle

    Looking over the CSIRO trifle recipe, I’m grossed out. What a pale, stupid arse version of a very nice dish. Berries are in SEASON in a southern hemisphere christmas! What about those lovely stone fruit?! Jelly is WRONG in a trifle! The ONLY trifle to have is pavlov’s cat trifle!

  • a revision of my comments about CSIRO’s approach to vegetarianism

    I want to add something to my first post discussing the CSIRO diet. Here is some very basic information I’ve found in the two CSIRO books. I haven’t looked further afield (yet). The acknowledgments in the second book write: CSIRO gratefully acknowledges all those who have contributed to the funding of research on higher-protein diets […]

  • gastropod: eating and moving

    If you’ve tuned in for a nice chat about DJing or jazz or music, you’re going to be very disappointed. This is a long story about how I think about ‘diet’ and ‘exercise’. I’m going to say personal things and talk politics. Sometimes I will lecture. Sometimes I will rant. Mostly I will ramble. As […]

  • making paneer: add acid

    Basically, to make paneer, you take the milk off the heat just as it boils, add the acid and stir while it’s on a lower heat. It just separates like magic, greeny whey, white blobs of curd. Awesomely satisfying. Following a Madhur Jaffrey recipe, I began by adding some white vinegar, even though I’ve added […]

  • carrot salad

    We had this with some aloo palak for dinner. Nom! This recipe’s from ‘Cooking With Kurma.’ This is basically grated carrot, lots of chopped coriander, lemon juice, a bit of salt and some spices cooked in a bit of oil: cumin seeds, urad dahl (I had none so used some toasted sesame seeds), curry leaves […]

  • pfeffernüsse

    pfeffernüsse5 These little things are amazingly tasty. They’re a bit time consuming (what with all the resting in the fridge), but it’s worth doing all the steps (including the glaze) as the taste is so complex and rich. While they have no butter or oil, they’re mostly sugar, so diabetics beware! 450g plain flour 50g […]

  • Pacific House noms on Sunday

    We did eat other things in Melbourne after the stupid eggs. Masses of seafood at Pacific House in Richmond. And salt and pepper fu.

  • eggs @ MLX9

    This is a crap way of poaching eggs. But they turned out better than our first go. We are so fucking tired. I wish we were eating nice food, but we aren’t. Yesterday (Saturday) I managed to bully my friends into going to Bismi’s on Sydney Road for fully sick rotis. They are fully sick. […]

  • Monsieur Truffle on Smith St

    Monsieur Truffle on Smith St Originally uploaded by dogpossum We are fooding and lindy hopping our way through Melbourne, visiting all our old favourites and discovering a few more. Monsieur Truffle on Smith St in Collingwood is run by a bunch of hippy chocolate nerds. The truffles were so rich, this is all I could […]
