Stewed pork belly with udon

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 11, 2012

Even though it’s already mid Spring, sometimes it still feels like we haven’t yet left winter. The Melbourne weather is as unpredictable and unforgiving as ever and I felt the full force of it about a week ago in Tasmania where it rained like the world was about to end but we still had to [...]


Baked eggs with spinach, pancetta & bocconcini

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 23, 2012

One day a few weeks ago, I had unfortunately run out of eggs. It was raining outside and my car was in for service so there was no option to run out and get some. I felt very jittery and uncomfortable for the whole day, wondering whether maybe I should call my mum to drop [...]


Baked eggs with potatoes and anchovies

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 16, 2012

I recently purchased 2 clay baking pots that are perfect for baking eggs. Baked eggs are addictive, especially in this chilling weather. Tasting a piping hot mouthful of oozy egg yolks mixed with soft chunks of tomatoes and baked potatoes is the perfect way to pass a lazy Sunday.


Steak sandwich with fried egg, beetroot and spinach

I remember when I was little, my house would always smell like garlic chives. If you haven’t smelt garlic chives before, it’s quite pungent. I know many people who can’t stand the smell let alone eat it but I frankly love it. To me, it’s not pungent, rather quite delicious. Mum would always stand there [...]


Roast chicken bagels with smashed avocado & poached eggs

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 29, 2012

I’ve been making a lot of bagels lately. With tuna, with chicken and smoked salmon. Directly after our wonderful lunch at Las Chicas in Balaclava the other day, we headed straight for Woolworths and bought a bag of bagels. They were a good change from the usual loaf bread that we always have and they [...]


Poached eggs, pancetta and spinach toast

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 18, 2012

I’ve been naughty lately. To be specific, I’ve been spending a lot. On what? Food photography related items of course. Most food bloggers and photographers/stylists will understand the dilemma of budget vs want. When it comes to colourful spoons, vintage pots or an extra lens, it’s always easier to buy first and think later. Well, [...]
