HONEY PANNA COTTA WITH PASSIONFRUIT

Eleanor Ozich ENTERTAINING SWEET DELIGHTS

HONEY PANNA COTTA WITH PASSIONFRUIT

A gentle panna cotta, wobbly and wonderful, just as they should be. This recipe calls for honey to sweeten, and a little touch of vanilla -  just enough to enhance the dessert, without being too overpowering. The most joyous inclusion, however, is a dollop or two of fresh passionfruit pulp. I encourage you to enjoy whilst these knobbly little delights are still in season.  2 cups cream, or coconut cream2 teaspoons grass-fed gelatin1 tsp pure vanilla extract1/4 cup honey4 passionfruit, to serve Pour the cream in to a medium sized saucepan, sprinkle over the gelatin, and allow to bloom for 5...

A GUIDE TO EDIBLE FLOWERS // LUNCH LADY BLOG

A GUIDE TO EDIBLE FLOWERS // LUNCH LADY BLOG

I've got a neat post for you today. It's one I put together for the Lunch Lady blog, and it's all about edible flowers, their unique flavour characteristics and ideas on how to use them. These pretty little things can bring a lovely sense of colour to baked goods, frozen treats or most things, really. Imagine a crisp garden salad, with tangy vinaigrette, coloured with bright nasturtiums, or a lemony almond cake topped with lightly whipped cream and a simple arrangement of purple pansies. You might be surprised to know that many flower varieties are edible, and who knows? they might already be...

CINNAMON SPICED GALETTE WITH BLACK DORIS PLUMS

Eleanor Ozich

CINNAMON SPICED GALETTE WITH BLACK DORIS PLUMS

A rustic dessert that is nevertheless elegant at the same time. It’s one of those wonderfully adaptable recipes, making use of whatever fruit is in season. On this occasion, I’ve married boysenberries with black doris plums, it’s lovely served with thick double cream, or a scoop of vanilla icecream. I've shared the recipe in this week's column for VIVA.

ON TRAVELLING WITH LESS

Eleanor Ozich SIMPLE LIVING TRAVEL

ON TRAVELLING WITH LESS

I’m off on a little adventure tomorrow, with only a tote bag of essentials, and a boarding pass to Sydney. It’s the first trip I’ve had in almost two years, and as you can imagine, I’m rather excited about it. While I’d certainly call myself a homebody, I deeply crave adventure, too, and to seek far flung places in this wonderful world of ours. Travelling with less feels liberating. It’s a beautiful way to explore freely, be intentional about the things you need, and the places you want to go. I’m looking forward to spending some much needed time with...

SPARKLING WHITE WINE WITH REDCURRANTS, CRANBERRY AND POMEGRANATE

Eleanor Ozich DRINKS ENTERTAINING

SPARKLING WHITE WINE WITH REDCURRANTS, CRANBERRY AND POMEGRANATE

Beautifully refreshing, this sparkling white wine spritzer is quite the perfect thirst-quencher for a warm, autumn evening. The clean, bright fruitiness comes from a splash of redcurrant, cranberry and pomegranate cordial, whilst a small squeeze of lemon juice adds the finishing flourish to this lovely drink. To make, pour a nip of Barker's Squeezed Redcurrants with Cranberry & Pomegranate in to each glass, add a few cubes of ice, fill half way with white wine (I enjoy a nice pinot gris) top with sparkling water, and add a small squeeze of lemon juice to finish. I rather enjoy Barker’s new range...
