Winter Warmers

Vegetable bolognese with tomato basil sugo 4

My appetite is always the first thing to let me know that Winter is here! I find myself spending more and more time in the kitchen, both because of the shortened days preventing most outdoor activities, but also to enjoy the ‘slow food’ nature of Winter’s produce.

Neenish tarts

For those of you asking for my neenish tart recipe featured in last night's episode of The Great Australian Bake Off, you'll find it here. This recipe brings back some great memories from my childhood. When I was young, Mum and I had a special tradition of buying a neenish tart each from a bakery on the rare occasion we went shopping in the city. As small and sweet as neenish tarts are, I have never found one that compares to those from our expedition - until I decided to make them myself. I've always been scathing about 'mock' cream, although I'm not now that I make it like this. I admit these are fiddly to make, so I must confess that I only make then when there will be enough people to eat them all, otherwise I'd finish them off and make myself sick! -MB Read the rest...
