Autumn is the season of wild mushrooms and we couldn’t be more excited. Each year we throw on our gum boots and warm coats, grab a basket and knife and head out mushroom foraging. Our family has been doing it for generations, and we have been going since we could walk. It’s probably one our families favourite traditions and you’ll find a lot of other Eastern European families do the same each year. We usually go out to Belanglo State Forest, which is about a 2.5 hour drive . . . → Read More: Sammy’s Wild Mushroom Risotto – as seen on The Morning Show

Yum! We just love waldorf salad, it’s the perfect combination of meatiness, creaminess and crunchiness. The flavours balance perfectly too – the bitter almonds, sweet apple and salty dressing are a match made in heaven. You can use leftover turkey or leftover roast chicken in this recipe, or some grilled or poached chicken will do the trick too.
Apples are in season right now so it’s great time to use them in all your cooking, whether it be a sweet or savoury dish like this one. For presentation, try . . . → Read More: Sammy’s leftover christmas turkey waldorf salad
Today we celebrate Anzac Day with a recipe inspired by some of the traditional symbols of Anzac Day – Rosemary and Poppy. We also pay tribute to the Aussies who remained at home, whose ration packs with home baked goods (such as Anzac Biscuits) were sent all the way to the battle fields. And we pay respect to the heart felt messages of love and support, delivered via these baked goods.
