Wedding Chicken

This Chicken and Lime Tagine is the exact recipe served at our wedding 15 years ago! It’s super flavoursome with soft potato. Usually served on couscous I can serve it on rice for a GF version. The final flourish is the red capsicum served fresh.

Chicken Kaffir Lime and Lemongrass Dumplings

Small serve is 10, large is 30. These are raw when you pick them up and you just pop them in a hot pan with a little oil, fry one side then flip, add 1/4 cup of water and the lid and steam. Enjoy!

Refillable Jars 

Shredded Veg Salad Jar: $20 (600gr) or small jar $10

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!
