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!

Happy New Year. Fresh from a fun filled family road trip from Melbourne to Sydney and back, I’ve been dying to share some culinary highlights experienced in the Shoalhaven (south of Sydney) area of NSW.

Our main reason for taking the coastal route was a dinner reservation at Rick Stein’s Australian venture – Rick Stein’s at Bannisters in Mollymook.

Our second stop was Cupitt’s Winery in Ulladulla.
The wine was superb, try Rosie’s Rose if you can get your hands on it. But the food at the vineyard kitchen was absolutely stunning, it’s a definite must, highlights were a beetroot salad with whipped goats curd, crisp zucchini flowers and a truffle honey dressing and braised pork belly with mizuna, nasturtiums, puy lentils and crisped pork skin. Yum. Best of all the Vineyard Kitchen is kid friendly, the restaurant could not be more accommodating with our brood.
En route to Sydney we discovered Milton, which was loaded with tasty eateries. Pilgrims, a vegetarian wholefoods cafe, provided a really tasty and healthy curried lentil burger with a sweet chilli and tahini dressing for lunch.
Berry was another highlight with delicious Italian food at the Berry wood-fired sourdough bakery and the infamous made to order donuts from the donut van perched on the Princes Highway.
With the beautiful untouched beaches, wineries and outstanding food, this region has left us begging for more.
