About Us

Tues 15th November 2011


Well, another month has past so I thought it was probably time that I sent out an update on what’s been happening here at Flavoursome Delights.

And the winner is….

Congratulations to Stephanie from Warren, Ohio in the USA.

She was the first person to respond to my last mail out and is now the proud owner of this set of two carved sandstone candle holders.

A bit about Stephanie in her own words.

“I truly enjoy all types of food and your recipes on flavoursomedelights are awesome.
When my kids were here for Christmas last year we made the chocolate covered liquor cherries and they were
a big hit with everyone. (Everyone is of age so no worries)
Seafood dishes are my favourite and I am partial to dishes that have a sauce or gravy.”

In case you’re interested, the recipe Stephanie mentioned can be found here.

The next giveaway.

Four Piece Wooden Coaster Set Four Piece Wooden Coaster Set

Rather than giving away some more stone candle holders. This time, I will be giving away a set of coasters made from the wood of a small to mid-sized gum tree that I had to remove from my garden because it was leaning toward the house.

You can see the details on how I made a similar set of coasters here.

On the food front.

I’ve been busy playing with sugar again this month and have finished photographing and writing up two more recipes for the kinds of candy that I used to just have to buy.

Turkish delight Turkish delight

First up is the final part in my quest to make Rocky Road from scratch, Turkish delight. It takes a lot of love to get this one right, but when you do, it sure is worth it.

Oh and if you’re wondering what Rocky road is you can see the recipe here.

Finally, my recipe for honeycomb, crunchy, sweet and covered in chocolate, what more needs to be said.

Flavoursome Delights.

Tuesday 18th October 2011


The last month or so has been rather busy for us here at Flavoursome Delights. Not only have we finished putting together the details about the cooking courses that Tatiana has been teaching at the Central Coast Community College, we also have a few recipes and I have decided it’s time I gave away some of my carved sandstone candle holders.


Flavoursome Delights

The Recipes
Cheese Croquettes Cheese Croquettes - Croquetas (croquettes) are extremely popular in Spain. Their beauty lies in the béchamel sauce which is the base of the recipe.

Biscuits Bretons Biscuits Bretons - Easy to make and delicious, everything I like in a home made biscuit.

Surprise your family and friends when baking your own brioche or “Petits Gateaux” (friands, madeleines, etc.). It’s easier than you think.
