Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

Tuna Tartare Recipe

This a very special recipe, taken from Olimpia Bortolotto of Cecconi’s Flinders Lane new cookbook – La Tavola Della Famiglia. Tuna is a fish IMHO (in my humble opinion),  that is best served raw. This fresh, spicy and delicious combination is a lighter nod to traditional tartare and would make…

Beetroot Cured Gravadlax Recipe

As a lover of Swedish design and stationery, I’m featuring the gorgeous kikki.K Kitchen range in this blog post. And, I thought it was only fitting to provide a Swedish inspired recipe to go with it. It’s nice to have a home for all the inspiring recipe ideas that I’ve ripped out from…

Gingerbread Muffin Recipe

It’s that time of year again, and my days are full. So full, that I haven’t had much time to cook, let alone post recipes. Starting to think about Christmas treats to give to visitors, I whipped up these muffins this morning. You’ll most likely have all the ingredients on…

Gingerbread Bunnies & Eggs

This Easter, I wanted to revisit a post I did 2 years ago and make these super cute gingerbread bunnies and eggs again. Like most kids, mine don’t have a choc-ometer and will eat it until they are rolling around on the floor moaning with sore tummies. These are a nice…

White Chocolate and Rosemary Nougat

You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that I’m right into Christmas baking. I love to have little treats on hand to give away as gifts or serve to visitors. For those of you Sydneysiders, that have been to Seans Panoroma in Bondi and tried this outstanding nougat, you’ll know…

Christmas | Glazed Ham Recipe

Well if this doesn’t make you salivate, I don’t know what will (unless you’re a vegetarian or kosher that is). I wanted to do a ham before Christmas, as we are heading away. If you happen to be on ham duty this year, this glaze is really easy and delicious.…

Christmas | Mince Tart Recipe

I just whipped up 4 dozen of these babies for gifts and just general piggishness. You can cheat and use bought fruit mince and add some grated apple, but if you make my special concoction you won’t look back. It’s as easy as pie! Fruit Mince Tarts Makes approx. 4…
