It’s Time we Discuss Trans-seasonal Dressing: The Modern Girl’s Guide
Blogged by: Wollongong Central 17 Mar 2016
Things are finally cooling off in Wollongong but as we move into autumn, we know that there will still be warm days ahead. This brings us to the topic of trans-seasonal dressing because whether you live in Wollongong, London or LA, there are always those timeless, versatile pieces that you can carry from season to season given their non-trend led nature.  In other words: trans-seasonal clothes look fresh and new, they freshen our wardrobe in the depths of winter and at the close of summer. In summary: cool, modern, wearable fashion.

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a glazed ham in the middle of the table. It’s easy to get bored of the same old flavour combinations. Remember ham steaks and pineapple? Well, that’s my inspiration for this flavour bomb. I’ve created this sweet and sticky glaze that will keep the guests coming back for more.
Grilled Prawns with Salsa Verde
Grilled Prawns with Salsa Verde
Blogged by: Brent Owens 20 Nov 2015
Prawns are a staple at my family Christmas table. Get your hands dirty and have fun with it. By roasting the prawns in their shells you maintain the juiciness and add that rich crustacean flavour that we love in seafood. Pair that with the zingy freshness of the Salsa Verde (that you can prepare the night before) to cleanse your palate after each mouthful. Quick, simple and incredibly tasty.

I have listed what I added into mine but you can be as creative as you want. This is a great recipe to prepare a few nights before the big day.
Christmas Cranberry Cauliflower Superfood Raw Rice Salad with Beetroot Hummus
Christmas Cranberry Cauliflower Superfood Raw Rice Salad with Beetroot Hummus
Blogged by: Brent Owens 20 Nov 2015
What a mouthful! I wanted to include all of these descriptions because this is an all-in-one, nutrition-packed superfood fantasy. It’s completely raw, retaining all of the vegetables’ natural benefits and takes a maximum of 20 minutes to prepare. The inclusion of beetroot will confuse your guests and keep them guessing what’s actually in it – plus it adds to the Christmas colour theme. I also like to sauté my cauliflower in a large frying pan with some coconut oil to get that toasted nutty flavour.

This one will be used all year round I’m sure. This makes a large quantity and for good reason. The family will be coming back for more. Little tip, if you’re making this ahead of time of the night before, leave the lime juice and olive oil out until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Roast Turkey Crown with a Spiced Cranberry Chutney
Roast Turkey Crown with a Spiced Cranberry Chutney
Blogged by: Brent Owens 18 Nov 2015
I feel as though roasting a whole turkey is quite intimidating for most home cooks. It was always a dish that I loved to eat but was scared to tackle. A turkey crown is the whole turkey with the legs and wings removed. I’ve used the crown in this recipe which makes cooking the breasts perfectly a lot easier and there’s a chance that all the delicious meat will get eaten, saving on wastage. Just remember, if you’re unsure whether or not the bird is cooked, poke your knife into the thickest part of the meat and if the juices run clear, it’s done. You can buy frozen turkeys on the crown at most supermarkets. If it is frozen, let thaw in the fridge for 3 days prior to cooking. The spiced chutney is a great sauce for this dish. It has all the flavours of Christmas, the tart cranberries and the sweetness from the molasses. I make mine a week before to let the flavours develop and so that it’s another job out of the way.
