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…

deadly dragon roll made with the ingredients of a Naked Sushi Kit

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

When Masterfoods recently sent me a basket of goodies along with a copy of their recent Lifting the Lid on Dinnertime report about the social role of food in Australia I was startled by some of the results… It seems that only 35% of respondents ate with family regularly and just 20% of respondents ate a […] Read more…

Cooked, a brand new four-part Netflix docuseries based on Pollan’s 2013 book, Cooked: a Natural History of Transformation, is an entertaining feast for the eyes, mind […] 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…

Dubrovnik Old Town Harbour

Croatia with kids: Pirates of Dubrovnik

“Land Ahoy” shouts Raffles, between a volley of “Arrhhs’ and “Yo ho ho’s”. As you do when sailing in to Dubrovnik’s Old Town on a timber galleon. The tiny traveller is convinced it is a real life pirate ship and, in a strange twist, it would appear the skipper concurs – proffering my small swashbuckler a feathered pirate […] Read more…
