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!

Figs with Prosciutto & Buffalo Mozzarella

Serves 2 adults
You’ll need:
3 ripe figs halved
1 medium ball buffalo mozzarella (you can use bocconcini but it’s not as creamy or tasty)
4 pieces of prosciutto, sliced thinly
Aged balsamic vinegar
Small handful of fresh basil
Arrange the figs, mozzarella and prosciutto on a serving plate.
Drizzle lightly with the balsamic and scatter with basil.
Caramel Figs with Honey & Cinnamon Yoghurt
Serves 2 adults and 2 kids
You’ll need:
4 ripe figs, halved
1 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup water
King Island honey & cinnamon yoghurt (or flavour greek yoghurt yourself)
Cinnamon powder, for dusting
  1. Heat the caster sugar and water in a small saucepan and swirl to mix, don’t stir.
  2. Continue to cook on a medium heat, until the caramel is golden.
  3. Using a fork, gently dip the skin side of the figs in the caramel and place on a sheet of baking paper to set for 10 minutes. Be careful the caramel is really hot!
  4. Spoon the yoghurt onto plates and dust with extra cinnamon.
  5. Arrange the figs and serve.
