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…

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…

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…

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…

Raffles filling Siu Mai

Sure-fire Siu Mai

 It’s no big secret that Raffles loves a dumpling. And when I say loves I mean with a passion equalled only by that of a seagulls for chips. In fact if eating dumplings were an Olympic sport, he’d bring home Gold. In every event. Including the relay. This is a child who considers Xiao Long Bao (pork dumplings […] Read more…

Raffles and Norway's Superstar Chef Erling Sundal

A chat with… Norway’s superstar chef Erling Sundal

It is not every day one gets their breakfast personally prepared by a Michelin trained celebrity chef. So when Erling Sundal, Norway’s culinary superstar and all round nice guy, fired up the brekky barbecue after a back-of-house tour of Sydney Fish Market, there was no holding Raffles back. In fact, not content with just eating Erling’s […] Read more…

Easy cheesy fondue

Easy Cheesy Fondue

The first and last time I ate fondue was in Switzerland. I was in my twenties, swanning around lovely Lake Lucerne with my now ex-husband. He annoyed me. I stabbed him with a fondue fork. The rest, as they say, is history. While the company was dubious at best, the fondue was superb. So much […] Read more…

ika mata recipe

Cook Islands Ika Mata

“Mama, it would be a really nice day to go to the Cook Islands” suggests a random Raffles as we look across the shimmering water of Sydney Harbour on a beautiful blue sky day. All our recent Cook Islands reminiscing has my little man hungry to retrace our steps to Rarotonga and Aitutaki… the logistics […] Read more…
