Fully Loaded Truffle Accented Hasselback Potatoes

IMG_0975

Who doesn't love fully loaded potato anything?! Roasted potatoes gives us such a beautiful, comforting, starchy base that it just begs to be loaded up with a myriad of toppings to add to the awesomeness!

Roasted potatoes can take many forms - you can have anything from the classic cut potatoes, the funky smashed chats for maximum crispy surface areas, to the fancy looking but very simple Hasselback potatoes!

Chambers Fine Coffee & Wine Bar, Rhodes

Have you seen a sadder burger?

We had taken a long walk to Rhodes and were starving. Ribs and Burgers had been on my list of places to try for a long while, but some how - yes I know I've been living under a rock - I completely forgot that it was Good Friday, and that just about everywhere was closed for the holiday.

But we wanted ribs, and we wanted burgers, and WE WANTED IT NOWWWWWW.

So we decided to try Chambers Fine Coffee and Wine Bar, which also had ribs and burgers on the menu.

Dainty Dumpling House, Rhodes

Sydney certainly has no lack of dumpling joints. From Din Tai Fung to New Shanghai to Taste of Shanghai, a craving for dumplings need never go unsatisfied.

So when a new dumpling place opens up. it certainly needs something to set itself apart.

Tan Viet, Eastwood

Tan Viet has been synonymous with crispy chicken for quite some time, and with good reason! With outlets at Cabramatta and Canley Heights, they provide chicken that is crispy not crispy because of any 'aids' like batters or breadcrumbs, but from it's own...chickenyness.

Naturally, when restaurants in Australia seem to thrive on variety - have you seen Asian restaurants with a menu as long as your arm? - I just had to find out how anyone has managed to specialise in a particular thing to such a degree.

Bread-ucation!!

Bread is one of those things - you're not guaranteed a result even if you are given the recipe. It takes technique, with the right recipe and the right conditions, to achieve the fluffy interior and crusty exterior that is the holy grail of white bread.

I've dabbled with bread on and off over the years, but I knew that I would absolutely get back to figuring this culinary puzzle out if it was the last thing I did!!
