I look forward to cold weather for many reasons. I love winter clothes: pulling out my stockings, knits, scarves and layers is like reconnecting with old friends. I like the way that winter gives us permission to hibernate. Short days and icy weather make snuggling at home seem absolutely sensible. And, above all, I love winter food: succulent, warming, sticky and nourishing. As well as simple, slow-cooked comfort food, I also try to up my intake of leafy greens. Smoothies make that so easy.
I love dropping into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about food with Clare Bowditch and her lovely talkback audience. This time we discussed the importance of vessels, cutlery and the devilishness of forks. Do you have a favourite spoon or teacup? Do you think it matters? Listen in.
I love dropping into ABC Radio Melbourne to chat about food with Clare Bowditch and her lovely talkback audience. This time we discussed soup, a very important topic as winter starts to grip. As part of my diligent research I even got a terrible cold just to check if soup really does cure winter’s ills. And guess what – it does!
