A simple weeknight meal that can be prepared ahead. Perfect for leftover lunchbox meals too!

With Summer on its way, hotter days; nobody want’s to spend anytime near the stove. This chicken salad will soon be in your rotation come Summer no doubt. If you feel super lazy, just make it with a BBQ chicken you pick up on the way home.


I don’t believe I had sampled gozleme before until Thursday of last week. Since then, I’ve had one nearly every day; and I’ve even banh-mi-dised it. I don’t wanna get too cocky, but Banh-mi-dising could be a new food movement!


This is seriously the easiest, most tastiest dinner or lunch option you must try!! You basically do all the prep the day before, then just cook chicken, put it all in a roll and BAM! You have the best meal ever. I’ve included the full recipe below, but I left out the cucumber, and I also left

You know a place is worthy of trying if Matt Preston has eaten there before. Katie and I decided it was time we caught up on all the gossip with each, other over some pho. I asked Katie to choose the place as I was flat out and suffering from man flu; thus affecting my

My friends and I needed a cheap feed before going to the Ross Noble arena spectacular. I picked a restaurant near the venue so we didn’t have to drive across town and co-ordinate everyone. None of us had been to Saigon Rose before, and decided it was about time we gave it a try. We

Mid week cooking postings have been a bit rare as of late haven’t they? This week I attempted a very easy pho recipe from the new Donna Hay magazine. I am a big fan of pho as you may remember from my previous pho adventures. Most recipes I’ve seen have about 600 different ingredients to

Cup eve in Melbourne, 2 chefs dateless, what did they do? They got together in search of Pho. Now I have explained what Pho is in a previous post but Iron Chef Katie has a cute little poem on her website, and it goes a little something like this: Do not say Foe Do not

No mid-week cooking this week again, sorry folks, being haven’t a bit of a random week with lots of things not going particularly to plan. So I had been craving my favourite Vietnamese dish, pho.
