a recipe for sure-fire sui mai

Recipe: 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 […] Read more…

Banh Xeo (Crispy Vietnamese Pancakes)

Recipe: Banh Xeo Crispy Vietnamese Pancakes

Written in Collaboration with Cruise1st Australia We’re a family of avid cruisers and have sailed far and wide. But one of our all-time favourite ports is busy, buzzy Ho Chi Minh City (the former Saigon). Famous for the pivotal role it played in the end of Vietnam War, the city is now the country’s pulsing […] Read more…

South African Bunny Chow recipe

South African Bunny Chow Recipe

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

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…

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 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…

Classic cheese fondue

Classic Cheese Fondue Recipe

The first and last time I ate a classic cheese fondue was in Europe. 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 […] Read more…

Hi, I’m Aleney and I am not a boy, but the little dude next to me is! I’m a besotted mother, award-winning travel writer, magazine editor and gallivanting glutton. He’s Raffles, and all-singing, all-dancing, all-cooking, all-adventurous eco-warrior. Along with his intrepid sister, Sugarpuff, we’re exploring the world’s colour, culture and cuisine on a food safari junior style.
