womanwithdrive asked Nerida to share her favourite spring recipes. These recipes are more ‘special occasion’ than everyday dining, and certainly inspire you to cook up a storm.
Adam D’Sylva’s Wok Fried Spanner Crab Omelette
Creating an omelette in a wok requires a leap of faith regarding oil – the results are well worth the initial psychological barriers. View recipe here.
Ian Curley’s Beetroot Carpaccio
An amazing vegetarian creation for those who have some time for preparation. You’ll also need a Japanese mandolin slicer. Click the link.
Jason Camillo’s Sautéed Rock Lobster with Garlic and Lime
Sounds tricky but this recipe is incredibly easy – but have your fire extinguisher ready (you’ll see what we mean). View here.
Ian Curley’s Seafood Paella
You’ll need a paella pan and also some special Spanish ingredients. The extra effort will deliver an amazing authentic dish perfect for a dinner party with a few friends. Here is the link.
Pierrick Boyer’s Vanilla and Lemon Pavlova
An Aussie classic from a French chef. This is something the kids or your partner can create while you’re cooking the main course! Click the link here.
We also recommend you look at Nerida’s Youtube channel. It has some great basic videos (such as how to cook the perfect steak). Nerida’s style is very natural, friendly and informative. The link is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/chefmasterclasses
