Matcha green tea layer cake with mascarpone cream

Matcha green tea layer cake with mascarpone cream

This post was written in collaboration with Kitchenaid One of the things we loved most about Japan was the matcha flavoured… well, everything. From chocolate and desserts to noodles and coffee, there’s nothing the Japanese can’t turn that pretty shade of matcha green. Indeed, so ubiquitous was the verdant powder that we formed a little […] Read more…

Bunny Chow recipe

Bunny Chow Down

Bunny chow. No, it’s not snack food for rabbits. Nor are the cotton-tailed cuties an ingredient. In fact the South African street food has absolutely nothing to do with bunnies of the fluffy variety. Bunny Chow is essentially a half a loaf of white bread with the inside scooped out and then stuffed full of curry that first gained […] Read more…

Poh Ling Yeow's recipe for Mr Ping's Pork Noodles

Mr Ping’s Pork Noodles with Poh and Po

Once upon a time there was a small martial arts obsessed panda boy who couldn’t stop eating… he ate and ate, practised some kung fu and then he ate some more. So it should come as no surprise that the Kung Fu Panda movies are that very same boy’s favourites, and not only because they’re brilliant movies. It’s because for Raffles, […] Read more…

Sushi secrets: The deadly dragon roll

At Casa Eats World, sushi is like oxygen. It is something we simply can’t live without and is inhaled by Raffles and Sugarpuff almost as frequently as air. Especially since our return from Japan. Their indefatigable fixation for the deceptively simple snack of rice, fish, vegetables and seaweed, means we’ve attempted making it at home […] Read more…

Indian style mango lassi smoothie

Indian Mango Lassi … like a Boss

I must confess that I’ve never been a juicer or blender, the whole green smoothie craze passing me by in a verdant vegetable-based blur. But a recent blip on my previously glowing health report card has meant a different approach to nutrition for me, at least for the foreseeable future, as I get my out […] Read more…

Sweet & Hot Chilli Pork Skewers

Hot and sweet chilli pork skewers

Mealtimes matter at Casa Eats World. In fact, if you hadn’t already noticed, we’re kind of obsessed with them. But it’s not only because we’re gluttonous. Although there’s no denying that’s a fairly major factor… You see that wasn’t always the case for me. When I was growing up my family never ate at a table. […] Read more…

Lunch Box Love with Lunchbox Dad and Sunraysia's

Raffles chats with… Beau Coffron aka Lunchbox Dad

Most parents would be familiar with Internet superstar, Lunchbox Dad Beau Coffron, he of the edible lunchbox masterpieces that make my kid’s sambos look spectacularly unappetising … embarrassingly so. San Francisco-based businessman and father-of-three Beau has been in Australia to help launch Sunraysia’s Lunchbox Love campaign and their healthy new range of delicious all organic juices, to encourage families […] Read more…

Lemongrass and Lime Fish Salad

Cambodian inspired Lemongrass and Lime Fish Larb

Raffles loves a good obsession and his latest is with Cambodia, a country that Mr Eats World and I explored pre-parenthood when we were still spry and wrinkle-free. Interestingly, and until now unbeknownst to my adventurous boy, I’m still more than a little obsessed myself. My own fascination harks all the way back to my childhood (no, not […] Read more…
