It's wonderful to make the most of Sydney the few weeks I’m here. While my weekdays are spent filming 16 hours a day, I relish in having the weekends off and getting to explore Sydney. Colin has flown up to spend the past two weekends with me and what fun we've had! Read the rest...

Bees maggiecolin

The very first taking of honey from our bees yesterday and the very fashionable photo of me in my beekeepers jacket and hat... however as I changed out of the protective gear I had an angry bee in my hair that was really scary as I couldn't get it out; and yes it stung me! The best antidote turns out to be our Red Wine Vinegar! Thrilling to have our own honey!

Rack of lamb with quince glaze

I have always enjoyed fruit paste with cheese, but one of my favourite discoveries is how perfectly they match meat dishes too. Making a glaze for roasted meats or individual serves like these lamb chops is a wonderful way to introduce a new level of flavour concentration to your cooking. Simply combine Quince Paste, in this instance, Verjuice and Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heat gently on the stove or in the microwave. This becomes a glaze to baste meat with either before it goes in to roast, or after you have pan-fried it and want to caramelise it for a few moments before serving. I find it a great way to use up any leftovers bits of paste that may not be eaten when I’m serving cheese too, you know how I hate waste! -MB Read the rest...
