What's Happening On Instagram?Slurping beef pho at #eatfuh on a rainy Saturday night - the perfect antidote to a busy, busy week. Comfort food for those times I can neither face the kitchen nor rustle up the energy to put my glad rags on. #thepaddingtonfoodie #inmyneighbourhood #pho #sydneyfoodblogA delicious alternative to hot cross buns. Swedish Semla. My new addiction. Cardamom buns filled with soft almond paste and freshly whipped cream. Traditionally, the origins of Semla can be traced back to fettisdag ~ Fat Tuesday ~ when these buns were eaten as a last celebratory feast before the beginning of fasting throughout Lent. Luckily for me they’re no longer a once a year indulgence. With Shrove Tuesday just around the corner, it’s pancakes and Semla for me. #thepaddingtonfoodie #semla #inmyneighbourhood #secretsydney #swedishmoments #funkisköketCoffee with a view. It’s not everyday you get the opportunity to sip freshly grown, roasted, ground and brewed #kopilemak while taking in the stunning scenery of the #tegallalangriceterraces. We especially 💕 the swing and birds nest. So many beautiful memories off the beaten track. #thepaddingtonfoodie #ubudlife #coffeeoftheday #baliindonesiaAnother glorious start to our day... #thepaddingtonfoodie #breakfastbowl #healthychoice #balistyle #ubudeats #poolsidestyle #summerloveOn our morning walk we discovered the ultimate organic farm to table dining experience. Look closely - not sure how I would feel about crispy duck for lunch after watching the 🦆🦆roaming the fields. #thepaddingtonfoodie #farmtotable #paddocktoplate #beautifulbali #exploreubud #warungNo place I’d rather be...breakfast by the sea. #thepaddingtonfoodie #bali #canggu #summerholidays #breakfastwithaview #bliss #pancakesanyoneIs this the world’s coolest bar? 🍸🍹🚔🏢👮🏻♂️ I love the way heritage buildings have been repurposed into cultural and creative hubs in Hong Kong. The recently revitalised Tai Kwun incorporating the Old Victoria Prison, Central Magistracy and Police Station is a case in point. Stroll through the parade ground, up the Laundry Steps into the Prison Exercise Yard to discover “Behind Bars” where you can enjoy your cocktails in a refurbished prison cell. And that is just one very small part of the Tai Kwun story. I could spend days here. #thepaddingtonfoodie #visithongkong #taikwun #coolestbar #jailhouserockGood Morning ☀️All my favourites on a plate. Gravlax, ricotta and fennel. With a poached egg on the side. #thepaddingtonfoodie #breakfast #myhappyplaceSure to be our new favourite local. We were lamenting the absence of a good Thai restaurant in the Paddington end of Oxford St. We’ll let the food speak for itself. #thepaddingtonfoodie #chubbycheekspaddo #oxfordstpaddington #inourneighbourhood #paddingtoneats #checkitout #justopenedA lazy Sunday vibe. Slow cooked beef ribs and slaw. 🍺🍷🥩 #thepaddingtonfoodie #sundaylunch #beefribs #slaw #redferneats #sydneyfoodCan’t think of a more delicious way to share the joy at Easter. The Grounds’ Easter Garden. Carrot cake with cream cheese filling, green sponge “moss”, meringue mushrooms, chocolate ladybug, chocolate soil, edible daisies and an Easter egg. Almost too pretty to eat🥕🍰🍄🌼🐣 🐇💕#thepaddingtonfoodie #carrotcake #happyeaster #easterbreak #letthemeatcakeThe prettiest avocado and poached eggs on (activated charcoal) toast. #thepaddingtonfoodie #healthyeating #saturdaymorningbrunch #activatedcharcoal #avocadotoast #poachedeggs #parterregarden #sofrenchsochicDonburi 💚🍚 🍆🌶#thepaddingtonfoodie #donburibowl #healthyeating #sydneyfood #inmyneighborhoodFeeling virtuous 😇this morning with this Summer Coconut Bowl.

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve made peanut cookies. So much so I had forgotten just how fabulous they can truly be. For too long I’ve overlooked using peanuts in my baking in favour of rather more sophisticated … Continue reading →
There’s a certain curiosity associated with baking with herbs. For me it started with a visit to Lavandula in Victoria’s beautiful Hepburn Spa region and Stephanie Alexander’s lavender scones. Before too much longer I was inspired to add a little finely minced fresh … Continue reading →
I love the way that one recipe can serendipitously inspire another. Having spent the majority of last week waxing lyrical about Rosa’s rich buttery almond shortbread, an acquaintance enquired if I had ever made Pecan Sandies, reminiscent of her American childhood. … Continue reading →
I’ve always loved the combination of lemon and cardamom, a common and very popular flavour pairing in Scandinavian baking. Warm, aromatic and gingery cardamom has a natural, almost effortless affinity with tangy citrus. Legend has it that the spice was … Continue reading →
I was first introduced to this biscuit decades ago on a trip to New Zealand. Afternoon tea at a picturesque cafe in Wanganui. It was difficult to choose from the delicious array of baked goods on offer. In the end … Continue reading →
Not For The Faint-Hearted. One Pan White Chocolate Chip Caramel Skillet Cookie With A Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce, Strawberries and Ice Cream.
This recipe is not for the faint-hearted. I could feel my arteries hardening as I whipped it up for my hungry teenagers this afternoon. Perfect fare for a wet winter’s afternoon. It’s school holiday time again. The weather is too … Continue reading →
Take a very simple vanilla butter biscuit dough. Spread with plum jam and scatter with almond meal. Roll up swiss roll style. Slice and bake. The result? A gorgeous, very moreish biscuit. Short, buttery and delicious. Sometimes I use raspberry … Continue reading →
Sometimes a great recipe just happens to find you. These Honey Snaps with a Chocolate Ganache were baked by my daughters this weekend. As part of their chemistry homework. One hundred girls were given the recipe and told to bake … Continue reading →
I haven’t made Melting Moments in years. Not since my daughters were in kindergarten and I made a lemon curd version. Packaged in cellophane and tied with pretty ribbon for a school fete. My word associations for these delectable treats? … Continue reading →
I like to think of these as a fancy Anzac biscuit. With chocolate chips. Crisp and crunchy with a chocolate hit they are a perennial fixture in our biscuit barrel. A much healthier version of the much-loved chocolate chip cookie. … Continue reading →
