Black truffle sour cocktail
I love a good cocktail and love experimenting with interesting flavours, ingredients and unique spirits. I am also a big Gin fan, so this cocktail inspired by a similar cocktail by Gordon Ramsay, uses one of my favourite Gins from Hellfire Bluff Distillery in Tasmania and one of my favourite ingredients – black truffle . The Amaro Montenegro works really well with the truffle as it adds sweetness and enhances the earthy flavour of the truffle. The lemon juice is balanced with the sugar and you can add more or less sugar to taste if you like it more or less sour. The egg white adds a foamy top to the cocktail that is topped off with freshly shaved truffle. Indulgent and delicious – this is a cocktail what is worth trying if you have some left over truffle to use up!
- 60 ml Amaro Montenegro
- 60 ml good quality Gin Hellfire Bluff Distillery is a good one

These are the best Spooky chocolate cupcakes, super moist and light, with a great chocolate flavour. They are a fun treat for Halloween and pretty easy to make. This recipe makes about 6 of each cupcake, but you can choose to decorate them however you want! Have fun...
I am a big fan of Christmas, and nothing is better than a hot Sago Plum pudding drizzled in warm creamy custard. I actually prefer it to a traditional Christmas pudding, as it is a little lighter. I also love the texture Sago adds to this pudding, and it is not quite...
Growing up as a kid, my Grandpa’s favourite cake was a Fruit & Nut Loaf. He affectionately called it “Spotted dog”, as it reminded him of his favourite pet dog. It was a very basic recipe, quick to make as kids and was flavoured with raw peanuts and raisins. We...
