Lamb Meatballs and Rosemary Polenta..

Who doesn’t enjoy a good meatball? Moist, tasty and BIG! Apparently to achieve a juicy meatball you need to add binders like breadcrumbs soaked in milk or an egg.. I skip these steps as I find mince with a high fat content tends to be more than perfect! Obviously if you’re using a lean mince,…

Saucy Chicken Hearts..

Autumn is here, and its time to swap out leafy salads for soups and broths, this is always a happy time for me because I specialize in making and eating comfort food! Hahaha! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the saying “from the tooter to the rooter” which just means eating the whole animal,…

Simple tripe and Samp.. (Ulusu no’Mnqusho)
