In the light of the announcement of our next ‘Our Favourite Things’, we thought it would be nice to share a few of our favourite things (to cook and eat)!
WHAT ARE YOUR ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS, THE THINGS YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT?
Fresh herbs for sure. I’ve got a nice little herb garden which means I can make any simple little thing into something with a big bang of flavour.
WHAT’S YOUR ULTIMATE LAZY DINNER DISH?
Definitely Summer Rolls. Rice paper filled with vermicelli noodles, avocado, carrot, cucumber, cabbage, coriander & mint. Soy, sweet chilli and Kewpie Mayo for dipping!
BEST CUISINE IN THE WHOLE WORLD?
GREEK! Taramosalata! Tzatziki! Kalamari tiganito! Souvlaki! Saganaki! Spanakopita! Really I should have been born Greek. If anyone has a Greek Grandmother they would like to loan me for some cooking lessons send her my way!
FAVOURITE DISH TO EAT?
Fried Rice! There is so much variation to this classic little number. As a teenager on a family trip to Thailand and Balifor the full four weeks I ate fried rice for dinner and never once was it the same!
YOUR FAVOURITE FRUIT?
Raspberries and Apricots. I grew up in Tasmania and had what seemed like an unlimited supply of these. The house I lived in while in pre-school had an Apricot Tree I don’t remember much from that age but the top two memories were my neighbour throwing Freddo Frogs over the fence for me and sitting in that tree. Nonie (my grandmother) always grew raspberries and still sends Home-made Raspberry Jam up to us.
YOUR FAVOURITE CHEESE?
I know my names Bree not Brie but cheese really is my thing. I have only experienced one cheese that I didn’t like; Red Leicester, yuck! I tried wasabi cheese on a recent trip to Sydney and it completely won my heart.
