I visited Greece when I was 21. It was my second stop on a twelve month backpacking / working holiday trip around the world, and it was the country I was most excited to explore and experience. I’m really not sure why, other than it had always appealed to me.

Spicy pork sausage pasta bake

I love a good pasta bake. In fact, I just love pasta. So much so that I could eat it every day. I really should be Italian!

It’s not always like this. [click to continue…]

Frying Pan Adventures - www.cooks-notebook.com.au

I was absolutely NOT expecting to eat the best felafel of my life the night I partook in Arva Ahmed’s Frying Pan Adventures food tour in Dubai.


I can still taste it, and it’s been months since that wonderful, memorable night.  [click to continue…]

spaghetti bolognese - www.cooks-notebook.con.au

I spend as much time as I can at our family holiday house at Killcare, on the NSW Central Coast. My parents bought this little haven back in 1992 (or maybe it was 1991), so I’ve been coming here for a long time. [click to continue…]
