the timeless turkey club

No, it’s not a club for turkeys… the turkey club is one of the most iconic sandwiches of all time. If not for its beautifully balanced flavours then for its double-decker height! The club sandwich appeared on US menus as early as 1899 so we know it is here to stay. It’s a real crowd-pleaser…

nutella crazy Sydney

We’re having a rather indulgent few weeks here at SSP headquarters and have decided to take a quick trip to the much talked about Tella Balls dessert bar in Dulwich Hill, Sydney. With a Nutella-rich menu there is plenty of hype surrounding this place and it does not disappoint. We have been inspired! And have created another…

prosciutto and asparagus = brunch heaven 

Don’t get me started on brunch. The most often overlooked, underrated, under appreciated meal of the day. It falls into the space between breakfast and morning tea and in my household is referred to as elevensies or second breakfast. Today for brunch I decided a sandwich would be on the cards as I had on-hand…

Local’s Corner

I just have to share this hidden gem on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with you! Local’s Corner is a friendly cafe on Sydney road in Seaforth where the service is speedy the portions are generous and the food is of the comfort variety. When I was there last I had a delicious sandwich, the ‘Hangover Cure’…

Lamb and tabouli BFFs

At work today I was absolutely starving after a rushed and unsatisfactory lunch so for most of the afternoon I was distracted dreaming about what I wanted for dinner and I couldn’t go past a Lebanese-inspired grilled lamb sandwich with tabouli and baba ghanoush. Come dinner time via a quick stop in at the supermarket,…

tabouli 

Need a fresh burst to your sandwich or just want an easy and exciting salad to accompany it? You can’t go past tabouli! tabouli Ingredients large bunch of flat leaf parsley, leaves only, washed and chopped 1/4 cup cracked wheat, pre-soaked (covered in water for at least 3 hours or overnight) 1 lemon, juiced 1…

baba ganoush – food of the gods

Can baba ghanoush be considered a mere condiment, when it is truly a stand-alone ingredient or host to a meal? I use baba ghanoush on so many of my hot sandwiches as its earthy, creamy, acidic, garlicky and salty flavours compliment meats and vegetables so well. I highly recommend incorporating it into a sandwich or…

Bruschetta with baby asparagus and marinated goats feta

Bruschetta is one of my all time favourite sandwiches as it doesn’t need much to make it memorable. It’s usually quite a simple creation of only a handful of ingredients, and it never fails to please. This variation uses grilled baby asparagus, goats cheese and a little fresh thyme for a tasty autumnal brunch or…

bruschetta: king of open sandwiches

As tomato season begins to wind down here in Sydney, I desperately try to incorporate them into everything I eat (aside from desserts, although I am open to suggestions?). One of my favourite sandwiches features the humble tomato unlike any other: Bruschetta Pomodoro. Bruschetta is an antipasto dish which originated in Italy. It refers to…

Leibster Award ‘new blog’ nomination!

I would like to thank fashion and lifestyle blogger Cassie over at Chic Mama for the Liebster Award nomination – an award which recognises new blogs and aims to connect the blogging community which, I must say, is in my experience, is a warm and welcoming one. The idea is to state facts about yourself…

prawn and chorizo roll with chimichurri

Inspired by a Spanish food stall that occasionally visits the Chatswood shopping district for world food market day, I love this sandwich for so many reasons! It’s colourful, it packs a flavour punch, it’s surf and turf on a bread roll, and it will definitely leave your appetite satisfied.  Ingredients 1/2 a small, fresh, white…

Chimichurri

Chimichurri is a vinegary green sauce made from herbs and a few other simple ingredients. Originally from Argentina, it’s often used to flavour grilled meats – and I personally cannot eat chorizo without it! If you haven’t tried it yet, trust me, it’s delish! Chimichurri Ingredients bunch of flat leaf parsley, washed and lower stems…
