The ultimate comfort food.
Spiced Lamb Casserole
A slow cooked lamb casserole, fragrant with cinnamon and thyme. Includes Eggplant and Carrots, this dish is topped with medallions (scone like dumplings) of Goat Cheese and Thyme.
“Dinner was superb, everyone loved it!” Mei, Flemington
Spiced Chicken Thigh Fillets Cooked in Rice with Corn, Black Beans and Capsicum.
Super Green Chicken Curry
A Super Healthy Curry of Chicken Breast and loaded with greens.
A tomato based sauce – tastes like something you ate in the 70’s. Also known as Miracle Chicken in our house as EVERYONE loves it! Even the fussy 8 year old. Hurrah!
Chicken, cashews in a traditional butter chicken sauce.
A baked Chicken and Rice dish with barberries (a red currant sized Iranian berry), fragrant with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and caramelized onion. Goes really nicely with the Roast Cauliflower Salad and Root Slaw (using all those funky vegetables you never knew you could eat raw; Kohlrabi, Celeriac, Beetroot, Carrot and fresh herbs from the Gina’s Kitchen garden!)
“OMG Gina. We just had dinner and the Uzbekistan Chicken and salads were just stunning!!! We will be having this again” Kelly, North Melbourne
With Potato, Onion, Carrot, Zucchini and Peas. This is a complete meal.
“My mouth started watering when I saw you! Are you dropping off some more of your delicious curry shepherd’s pie?” a Flemington Husband (who shall remain nameless)
Slow Cooked Beef in Red Wine
Served on Mash with veg.
Layers of crunchy, crumbed Eggplant with tomato, basil, cheese and a mascapone white sauce. Absolute heaven!
Supplied with organic corn chips, this is super tasty, great with rice, pasta, atop a baked potato or break an egg into it in a ramekin and bake it in the oven for a delicious breakfast!
Roast Veg Tart
Made with my famous homemade cream cheese pastry this tart uses a combo of all leftover veg, roasted until deliciously caramelized, combined with herbs (or sometimes pesto) and topped with an eggy, cheesey, sour cream filling. Utterly delicious.
Lentil Cottage Pie
A vegetarian version of the Shepherd’s pie. Veggies and lentils lightly flavoured with Indian Spices with a Sweet Potato & Cauliflower topping.
Crumbed Eggplant, layered with napoli sauce, herbs and a mascarpone cheesey sauce.
“It was exquisite” – Loretta from next door!
Mighty Greek Moussaka
Layers of Eggplant, Roast Potato, Rich Ragu and an Eggy Bechamel sauce.
Chilli Con Carne (or Senza Carne)
A Super Tasty Vegan Chilli with kidney beans, red capsicum and lentils.
Pulled Pork with Cauliflower Cream, Wilted Greens and Beetroot Salad
“We really loved the pulled pork…So Good…The pork, beet salad and greens were out of this world” – Erin, Flemington
Meat, Meat & Veg or Vegetarian
“That was the best lasagne in Melbourne. No, seriously, I’ve tried lots of them and that was really good.”
Vegetable Cassoulet with Cheesy Scone Topping
A cassoulet of white beans with fennel, carrots, tomato and other veg, flavoured with Thyme and topped with cheesy scones. Really delish!
“We loved the cassoulet, especially that delicious bread-y thing on top, the eggplant parma is my favourite, thanks so much for your wonderful food.” – Kirsten, Flemington
“It’s really nice eating vegetarian when it’s cooked properly.” said a very brave Flemington Husband to his exhausted wife who was just pleased to have had dinner made for them!
Shredded Veg Salad Jar: $20
Undressed, a seasonal mix of veg, leaves, herbs and sometimes Edamame Beans. Should last a week without dressing. Great as a side with your bacon and eggs, pop it in a sandwich or with your dinner protein. You can also stir fry it or make it into soup at the end of the week if you’re sick of it or if it’s not tasting as fresh as it was at the start of the week!
Almond Granola: $16
- Almond Granola: Almonds, Oats, Cinnamon, Ginger, Coconut Oil, Maple Syrup
“Gina, your granola is insane! Thank you!”
Cookies change each week.
- Viking Cookies (white choc chips with cardamom)
- Oaty Choc Chip
- Passionfruit Yoyo’s
- Seeded Anzacs
- Almond Kisses
- Totally Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Homemade Kingston Biscuits
Josie’s Curly Fries: $15
Nigella gave us the idea to spiralize potatoes and make them into chips. Turns out they are super tasty cold, and last for a week (if you manage not to scoff them all) in a sealed jar. Perfect little crunchy treat for the lunchbox (because if your children are like mine they are constantly asking why everyone else gets packets of chips in their lunchboxes) but without all the packaging and additives. Just pure potato and oil (ha!), and maldon salt or chicken salt if you like.
Talking Nuts: $25
A nutty combination with a sweet and savoury spice mix.
Tasty, crisp, salty sesame flatbread. Flavoured with Onion Powder and Parmesan or Fennel (Vegan option) or any other flavour you desire.
