Hello dear reader. Sorry that I’ve been a little anti-social on the blog front for the past few days, but once this test is done on Tuesday I hope to be back to normal and commenting on your blogs as per usual. In the meantime, here are some photos from an engagement dinner we went to […]Read more "Food Scenes From a Chinese Restaurant"
The Peckish Kiwi, my second member of staff, he’s busy feeding me and generally attending to my happiness. I’m terribly sorry, but The Peckish Kitty comes before The Peckish Kiwi you see. In the meantime, I hope you’ll be placated by my face of false contrition. Quite a useful face, also works well after I’ve […]Read more "Apologies, My Non-Furry Friends"
Oh yeah. This little foodie trifecta from Pure New Zealand Ice Cream will get your taste buds round the bend and down the home stretch every time.

There’s only so much a Peckish Kiwi can take. Holding one’s resolve while beholding Sassy Earl Grey’s Flaky Spiral Malaysian Curry Puffs is one matter, but I cannot be expected to stay strong against those and Bonding Tool’s Char Kway Teow photos. Lucky for me Ponsonby Food Court is home to Kampung Malaysian and is handy to work. Chicken […]Read more "Kampung Malaysian – Char Kway Teow"
Thanks again Ripe Deli (this is from their newly released cookbook. We’re going to have so much fun with this). This is the big one, the no more mucking around, this immune system isn’t big enough for the both of us, chicken soup when all others have failed. You’re dropping a whole chicken on the problem, with a […]Read more "Made With Love Chicken Soup"
“Warm cake makes everything better.” – le pirate I don’t know if that’s objectively true, but if you told me warm le pirate cake makes everything better, I’d absolutely believe you. Go here, for the full recipe and prettier photos.
