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!

STREAT, a social enterprise that provides young homeless and disengaged youth in Melbourne with hospitality training, officially opened a new café at Melbourne Central on Monday May 6th.
To coincide with the opening of the café, STREAT have also launched a fabulous 160-page hardcover cookbook. It’s filled with delicious recipes from around the world created by STREAT’s head chef Rob Auger along with beautiful photography and artwork, and a foreword and recipe from celebrity chef Poh Ling Yeow of ABC’s Poh’s Kitchen.
STREAT has already supported and trained 60 young people, for six-months across its three cafés and coffee roasting business. The cafes are located in Flemington, McKillop Street in Melbourne’s CBD, and the new café at Melbourne Central. Trainees learn to prepare and serve delicious meals and coffee and upon graduation receive a Certificate I and II in hospitality from the William Angliss Institute. The majority have then found jobs or gone on to further education.
Help STREAT’s crusade to stop youth homelessness.
Purchasing a copy of STREAT’s cookbook, or frequenting their cafes, or buying some coffee on-line is a great  way to take part in STREAT’s crusade to stop youth homelessness. Visit and help turn a life around.
 To celebrate its launch, I have a copy of the STREAT cookbook to giveaway to a reader.
