Mushroom and Black Bean 'Meat' balls

0 comments

Today's recipe is a little different from my usual recipes- I do plenty of veggie recipes, and some recipes which may involve meat, but not so much a crossover between the two like I have today with these mock 'meat' balls made from a combination of mushroom and black beans!

Mock meats are quite prominent in Asian culture, regardless of whether you are vegetarian or not. I can't say I'm a huge fan, especially as I find that they're not do cooked the right way most of the time, but I was keen to try this recipe because it
a) actually looked very similar to meatballs in the picture and
b) I had just fresh mushrooms in the fridge and a can of black beans that were almost reaching their expiry.

So why not?

Crab Carnival 2017 at The Morrison, CBD

0 comments

I'm a huge fan of all things seafood, and if there's one type of seafood that I don't see enough of on restaurant menus it would be crab. So when I heard about the Crab Carnival at The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room with a complete menu dedicated to crab, I knew I had to visit. The Crab Carnival runs annually for roughly a month between March and April, and involves not only crab dishes, but also crab drinks and events (hermit crab racing anyone?)

Oysters ($4 each)

Grilled Miso Eggplant (Nasu Dengaku)

0 comments

If you've been following my Instagram, you may have noticed I've had a bit of a baking itch lately, jumping at every opportunity to practice my cake making skills (and running into a lot of failures one the way). For those weekends where I can't an excuse to bake cake, I like to experiment with different foods in the kitchen, and my idea of fun is any recipe that's completely new- the more unique and complex, the better of course!

As much as I love spending my weekends on these food experiments, when it comes to taste, sometimes simple is best and that certainly is the case with this delicious miso eggplant dish. I had my first taste of miso eggplant in a Japanese restaurant last year and was blown away by how amazing a simple dish of grilled eggplant with miso sauce could taste.
