Peter Gordon’s Double Chocolate Nut Cookies

Peter Gordon’s roasted butternut squash with chilli butter and poached eggs

Already dismissed this as some hippy-dip-shit student food which you wouldn’t deign to eat? Ah, don’t be misled. The Antipodeans know how to do brunch (try Lantana or Granger & Co if you don’t believe me) and brunch dishes, as far … Continue reading

Peter Gordon’s Tomatoes on Toast

Don’t be fooled by that innocuous description. I think these could be life-changing tomatoes on toast, the sort of tomatoes that turn ‘on toast’ from the bridesmaid to the bride. What is it with these Antipodeans and their ability to … Continue reading

Lamb burgers with lime leaves

The burger can be much-maligned but, what with Obama being a bit of fan, especially after the week he’s just had, and the advent of such delights as Young and Foodish’s BurgerMonday (and Tuesday), it seems to me that its joys are being wrested away from chains … Continue reading
