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!

In 2008 we travelled to Stockholm and were blown away by the beautiful city. We were there late July and it was warm and sunny and we cycled everywhere. On one of our cycling trips we ended up on a stunning island called Djurgarden full of stately grand homes and magnificent gardens. Cycling along, a fresh produce stall caught my eye and as it was nearing lunchtime we were delighted to discover that there was a cafe there, selling food made with the farms produce.

We settled on an incredibly tasty chicken caesar salad and enjoyed it on a coffee table sculpture in the middle of an apple orchard. Bliss.

1 inch thick piece of spicy pancetta cut into cubes and fried until crisp

1 garlic clove, crushed
