French Cuisse

have i ever told you how addicted we are to MasterChef? only the Australian one, mind you. we found the American one way too competitive! and the South African one is just embarrassing. so, my husband and i are complete addicts. the latest season just ended (DON’T google or go to the official website if you don’t want spoilers to ruin your day!) so i have had to fill my MasterChef gap with other food related distractions like that movie Chef, which i really enjoyed, and delving into the occasional food blog.

French Cuisse is a tumblr by 22 year old William Matthew Vale who works in the restaurant industry. he sees it less as a food blog and more like his own personal “culinary portfolio”. it certainly is a wonderful portfolio given that the food looks amazing and the photos are crisp and inviting. he only posts the ingredients and the end result, so if you intend on recreating his awesome looking dishes you may be in for some trial and error cooking.

Eat This Food

i discovered Australian based food blog Eat This Food thanks to The Design Files, and immediately got caught up in the fantastic combination of fun graphics, great photography and amazingly tasty looking food (of course). The blog is run by three Tasmanian creatives who are now all based in Melbourne – Pat Breen does the cooking, Sean Fennesy takes the photos and designer Jess Lillico is responsible for the graphics. everything about Eat This Food is right up my alley – especially the handy downloadable PDFs. i hope these guys are paving their way to a recipe book, because i would snap it up in a second. please click on the images to be taken to the recipe – and see all of them here.

Manger

i immediately clicked through to Mimi Thorisson’s blog Manger after Joanna posted about her garden cake. Mimi lives in  the Médoc region of France with her family and 14 (!) dogs including a german pointer called Gertrude who i would probably steal if we ever met (german short haired pointers are my favourite pooches). she writes about life in the country and shares wonderful recipes including one of my absolute favourites eton mess and sophia loren’s meatballs (not a euphemism).

5 ingredients, 10 minutes

i’ve already admitted to being a lazy cook. i resort to avocado or eggs on toast way more than i should (that goes for breakfast, lunch, dinner… snacks) and sometimes a can of chick peas or a tub of hummus is my only salvation. the problem is that i like fast food – as in, quick to make… not the unhealthy variety. ok i love pizza, who doesn’t?

stonesoup is a blog written by jules clancy who wants to help people become better cooks by using a minimalist approach to cooking. she says, “It’s about reducing the number of ingredients, the amount of equipment, the number of steps involved and the time we spend in the kitchen to a minimum so we can focus what’s important.” she shares great tips on how to stock your kitchen, saving money by not buying useless ingredients, making “2 dollar dinners” and tons more. check out the recipes, they are inspiring. she’s also written an  ebook called 5 ingredients, 10 minutes.

i want these bangers in my mouth (he he he)
