I don’t know when i went crazy for aprons but lately I’ve been appreciating the value of covering my clothes with something spatterproof. My latest cover-all is by Anna Chandler Designs and I feel uplifted just pulling this crisp cotton piece of modern art out of the drawer. Seriously, start your collection soon because aprons are IN.
The za’atar grilled avocado at Fresh on Charles is almost enough reason to fly to Launceston! I love this tucked away vegan and vegetarian retro cafe in the centre of the city, with its hidden sun-trap patio perfect for an outdoors winter’s day lunch. The avocado is served with a lip-smacking red capsicum, chili and cashew pesto, sourdough rye on the side and with a pomegranate micro salad.
If you build up a repertoire of one-pot dishes, where the left-overs can be repurposed for lunch, you are being a very smart cook. This delicious beginner curry incorporates curry powder rather than a longer list of spices so you don’t need to store as many packets. It makes a simple nourishing lunch you can warm up later with a piece of flat bread.
