shack attack

A holiday house. Five minutes to the beach. A tree house for the kids. Half an hour away from the nearest big town. Kangas on the lawn in the evening. A deck for afternoon drinks. Sounds like bliss, right? Every year I get fooled by this list, and eagerly book a charming, classic beach house just a few hours down the highway on the south coast of NSW. And every year as I’m packing, I remember what it is that I don’t like about the self-catered holiday; I’m going to have to cook for a week in a fibro shack with an original 1960’s kitchen (it looked soretro in the pictures), on a stove with only one coil that works (and if you turn it up to ‘high’ it trips the…

“I COULDN’T RESIST GIVING HER A GO!” Birthday surprise I fell in love with Sally the Rainbow Unicorn Cake (October 2016, p37) and I couldn’t resist giving her a go. I made it for my little sister – she’s 23 but really loves unicorns. Once I had all the lollies, it was really easy to put together. You can’t help but smile when you look at all those beautiful colours and I was so happy with how she turned out. Erin Pettit, via email Ed says: She makes us smile, too! FAMILY-FAVE DISH Last night’s dinner was your Gnocchi Boscaiola (p40) from the November issue of Super Food Ideas. What a great recipe. It was delicious and the whole family absolutely loved it!

“The difference between a bland tomato and great one is immense, much like the difference between a standard, sliced white bread and a crusty, aromatic sourdough.”YOTAM OTTOLENGHI, CHEF Oxheart tomatoes So called because of their shape and size, these tomatoes can weigh up to 500 grams! Varying in colour from rose-pink to deep red, they’re meaty and have minimal seeds so they’re great for slicing and using on sandwiches. With their strong aroma and sweet-tasting flesh they’re delicious, too. TO STORE: Keep ripe tomatoes at room temperature or in the fridge if you don’t intend to use them straight away. PERFECT PARTNERS: Basil, salt, oregano, cheese, balsamic, fish, red onion, bread, extra virgin olive oil. QUICK IDEA: These beauties are bursting with flavour, so enjoy them simply with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil…

crunch time

1 Red Rock Deli Sweet Potato Sea Salt Crisps, 135g, $4.95 Looking and tasting as a sweet potato should (and made from just sweet potatoes, sunflower oil and sea salt) these chips were an all-round favourite that had us going back for seconds. 2 Ajitas Natural Vege Chips, 100g, $3.39 These spoon-shaped vegie chips had a subtle flavour and a light texture that reminded us of prawn crackers. They’re super crunchy and the size makes them perfect for scooping. 3 Ajitas Original Blend Vege Deli Crisps, 80g, $4.35 The blend of purple and orange sweet potato and taro, plus its salty seasoning, meant these chips earned top marks from us in the mixed category. They’re thinly sliced but still extra crispy. 4 Simply 7 Lentil Sea Salt Chips, 113g, $5.99 You’ll go mental…
