ATOTB Kitchen Update: September Recipes

We’ve had a few crazy busy weeks of recipe development here at A Tale of Two Bougies Kitchen HQ. This past week has seen us committing to stepping outside our usual (very Asian-themed) box, and playing with flavours and techniques that are a little more unfamiliar and less frequently used in our kitchen. We’ve alsoContinue reading “ATOTB Kitchen Update: September Recipes”

Snap, Crackling, Pop! Fennel, Roasted Garlic + Potato Soup with Crackling Pork Belly

Posted by Dani Sunario (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. This dish blew my mind. Not kidding. I made this, got so excited after my first mouthful, yelled out “FUAAAAAA” four times, then went and changed my pants. In that exact order. Oh, Mylanta. The only thing that could’ve enhanced this experience is if  my pork-belly-lovin’-lovers were here withContinue reading “Snap, Crackling, Pop!

Breast Friends: Gochujang Poached Chicken, Kimchi Roasted Pears + Potatoes

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario),Melbourne. Chicken breast has a notorious reputation for being dry and overcooked, and even more so, poached chicken breast gives the image of gross dry, grey meat served with steamed frozen vegies. Double gross. This method of poaching the chicken at 68 degrees for 12 minutes results in super moist meat andContinue reading “Breast Friends: Gochujang Poached Chicken, Kimchi Roasted Pears + Potatoes”

Just Beet It, Chickpea It: Spiced Pickled Beetroot + Classic Hummus

Posted by Tiff (@tiffanyalisonha), Perth. Even though us foodies go to great lengths to prepare some of our meals (think rolling individual gnocchi by hand or blow-drying a duck with a hair-dryer), there are some days when we’re just short on time or money and can’t be bothered trekking to the usual take-out spots, letContinue reading “Just Beet It, Chickpea It: Spiced Pickled Beetroot + Classic Hummus”

Edamame, is it Christmas yet? Sautéed Radishes and Edamame in Miso Butter

Instead of gifting you a couple of turtle doves on day two of our festive cooking week, we are bringing you a delicious vegetarian dish that isn’t necessarily traditional in Christmas flavour, but certainly vibrant enough in colour to rekindle the festive spirit.

Soup’ed Up: Cold Vegetarian Apple, Carrot, and Ginger Soup with Cashew Dukkah

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. I may be known around these parts as a bit salt fiend, but little do most of you know that I am also a MASSIVE juice fiend. Freshly squeezed apple, carrot, and ginger juice is my kind of liquid gold. Sometimes, I even like to add a little celery juiceContinue reading “Soup’ed Up: Cold Vegetarian Apple, Carrot, and Ginger Soup with Cashew Dukkah”

Get Outta My Grill: Summer Vegetable Salad with Prosciutto Crumb and Sesame & Sumac Yoghurt

Posted by Dani (@dani_sunario), Melbourne. It was a disgustingly hot 37 degrees in Melbourne today. The only thing keeping me from not dying in this heat is how supercool I already am. JOKES. (More likely  it’s the super-sized Lemon, Lime and Bitters flavoured slushies from the local 7-11  that I have been inhaling all dayContinue reading “Get Outta My Grill: Summer Vegetable Salad with Prosciutto Crumb and Sesame & Sumac Yoghurt”
