The light may be quite bad in these photos, but I can assure you that this Jamie Oliver recreation was a winner and packed a flavor punch.

After seeing a recipe for this on the front cover of Gourmet Traveller, a recreation had to be attempted.
It was spectacular.
I slow roasted a shoulder of pork in a spice mix for 6 hours and it turned out pretty spesh.
Placed on top of a homemade tortilla with crunchy slaw, salsa and avo – a pretty awesome dinning experience.
Another family birthday dinner, another Fillet Mignon fed to a table of happy customers.
I wonder if we will continue to have this meal for every birthday until we die…
What better way to celebrate Australia Day/Invasion Day than to make your own Meat Pies!
That’s what I did and they were delicious!
Nothing like a taco to start the weekend.
If you’re taking a dip in the Mexican world, you may as well make it amazing and these days there is no excuse to buy horrible packaged taco kits.
Making your own taco shell is extremely simple and all you need is Masa flour and water. Mix them together till you get a soft-ish dough and flatten out small amounts of the mixture and dry-fry them in a pan until cooked through.
A fresh squeeze of lime and pinch of sea salt on the taco before you add on your toppings makes the homemade shell come alive.
I used all the usual toppings but made them from scratch. My one big tip for making an awesome taco is having multiple sauces. Make sure you’ve got salsa and guacamole, sour cream is always a must in my household.
I made Agadashi Tofu for the first time yesterday and I never realised how easy it was to make!
The important bit is to find really fresh tofu to give yourself the best result.
I used this recipe here.
I just accompanied it with rice and some steam green veg.
What a treat!
