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…

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…

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…

Takoyaki - Japanese Octopus Balls recipe

Street Eats, Golden Snitches & Takoyaki Octopus Balls

I’ve written previously about our unhealthy obsession with hot steamy balls. Octopus balls that is. Before you get excited, I’m not talking about the gonads of an octopus (which, incidentally, are located in their heads… should you ever happen to be looking), I’m talking takoyaki, those dangerously addictive spheres of flour, eggs and dashi, studded with octopus pieces, ginger and green […] Read more…

Green Mango Salad with Balmain bug recipe

Green Mango Salad with Balmain bug

When I was growing up, back in the days when the paleo diet was all about eating actual dinosaurs, salad pretty much meant tomato, cucumber and lettuce in a bowl. We’re talking of a time when kale and quinoa were unheard of, chia seeds were used to grow the grass-like fur on faddish 80’s terracotta […] Read more…
