Crostata and Sciacchetrà....mmm....
Hello my little munchers! As in food munchers. As in I’m referring to the fact that you all eat food…yay! Anyways, hello!!! So I think I may have mentioned to some people that I went to Italy over the summer (omg omg omg) and that I did lots of super awesome cool stuff over there. For example, I hiked up some mountains and ate lots of food and I looked at a lot of really pretty...
I made a mistake you guys :(
Eugh, everyone, I’ve made a mistake. So basically I’ve been going on about how awesome my rating system is, by having such and such a number of “om’s” out of a whole “om nom nom”, and you know, that’s super duper cool and awesome. But basically it has just been pointed out to me that I never actually mention what number a full om nom nom represents....
What a Load of Beef
Hello again fellow eaters, Today I was in a bit of a pickle. I was rushing out the door and needed something to take into uni for lunch. Thrust in my face was a packet of beef two minute noodles and a thermus (is that how you spell it? I’m getting a nice little wiggly red line under that one…) Now this was in fact a very kind gesture; navigating oneself through the various...
Risotto. That is all.
So I think it’s about time that I talk about risotto. Let me get all mushy for a second (hahaha, mushy, like risotto…not my risotto though, mine’s not mushy, it’s yummy, but yeah). Risotto is a very special thing for me, I’m not entirely sure why, but I always feel like the gastronomy gods are looking down upon me when I’m cooking it. It always feels like a...
Giuseppe, Arnaldo & So-So
Friends, I would just like to begin this post by saying that I do not usually complain about food, restaurants or the like. In fact, I am usually so pumped up with excitement for food that when I do eat, I gaze helplessly out to the world, begging for an explanation as to how the food is able to be so un-understandably delicious. So it would be fair to say that it takes a fair push for me to...
Most Overused Comment on MasterChef:
“It can’t be overcooked, but you have to make sure that it isn’t undercooked either.” (N.B. “It” refers to chicken, pork, steak, prawns, capsicum, bread, soufflé, baked cheesecake, continental cheesecake, sashimi, fresh figs or a chopping board.) Blog Appetit!
Anonymous asked: Good morrow! as you are a food professional, i have a question of dire importance to ask you. In what order do you eat standard m&m's? I myself go with brown-green-yellow-orange-red-blue, but i'm not sure if this is right? Am i losing any flavours with this method? Regards, derplydodah. Ps, i liked the pumpkin ravioli. Looked delicious!
The Day I Got Burritoed
Guys, I spend a bit of time cooking, but I spend even more of it eating. That’s why from time to time, I like to try me some delicious takeaway food. On this particular occasion, my boyfriend and I decided it was about that time of day where we should sit on the couch and do nothing, but we needed some lunch to go with it. So we went a-looking and found this place with only the coolest...
Pumpkin and Leek Ravioli with Sage Burnt Butter...
Pasta has got to be one of the best things in the world. I love pasta. I also love making pasta. When I started getting some serious pocket money from my parents, the very first thing that I bought with it was a pasta machine. I was 12. Not even joking. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. This recipe is something new that I was just making up as I went along and I think it turned out pretty well. Sorry...
If I Wasn't Sick I Would Have Thought of a Title
Helloooooo everyone! How’s it going? Oh me? Fine thanks. Actually no, not so fine. I’m sick. Stuck in bed kind of sick. Although at this time of year it’s stuck-in-bed-with-a-pile-of-textbooks in preparation for exams. Eughhhhh. Advanced corporate finance anyone? No? Oh but it’s so fun. And I love the examples in the textbooks. Seriously “Loki Industries wants to...
I Heart Pizza
I’m really just putting this photo in here to brag. I WENT TO ITALY OVER THE SUMMER EVERYONE. I came back, um, how long ago was it now….goodness gracious FIVE MONTHS AGO. Now that is sad. The reason I took this photo though was because this was the very first pizza that I ate in Italy!! I ate it in Rome down a little cobblestone alley right next to the Spanish Steps. It was...

Peaches and Cream Tart
I don’t know about you, but I am extremely talented at remembering useless things. I remember how many buses I passed in my car today (an impressive four), I remember how I did my hair on the first day of school (pig tails, and actually my mum did it) and I remember exclaiming in Grade 5 that I knew the lyrics to The Ketchup Song (“I said a hey, a hop, a hey, a heavy, to the heavy,...
Has anyone ever really sat down and thought about bagels? I mean seriously, just run with me here for a minute. Bagels, what even are you? Is there anything else like you? I actually don’t think so. You are both bread-ish but you also have this nice unidentifiable quality that makes you just a little bit more awesome than bread. Oh oh oh, and you have a crust, but it’s not like the...

Ohhhhhhh yeahhhhh, you know you want some inspiration cakes, get your creativeness happening with some of these: Ingredients: 125g butter ...
How do people usually start these things anyway...
Ok, let’s give this thing a go… Hello! Have we met? I’m going to assume for now that we haven’t, which is sad, so let’s fix it! Hi! My name’s Georgia and welcome to 180degrees! The idea for this whole thing came to me in a dream. No, actually I think it came to me while I was singing in the car. Nope, singing in the shower. No, it was definitely singing on...
