Salmon, Salad & Sunshine

This week we all got a bit more sunshine, I found time to tended to my vege patch thanks to daylight savings and there being no more week night pool matches to be sidetracked with.  Meanwhile Grant found his way to sunny Blenheim give a cooking demonstration, and we both received a little extra exposure thanks to the Nelson Mail this week... [link]

Yes, now you've had a good laugh here's this weeks dishes. The first is a classic tomato, basil and mozzarella salad. No doubt you've seen this before but just look at the quality of this locally sourced cheese!
The second is currently on the menu at the Mint Dining room, it's a sugar cured salmon with green apple cannelloni and a sour cream soufflĂ©.  The salmon is amazing and we've documented the curing process for the book, it is something you can do quite easily and the results are far better than store brought products.


  1. Wow, looking good, unlike me on the stage!
    I looked like a possum caught in headlights!

  2. As for the link, they didn't get my best side in the photo!
    (which is always the other side, some would say i have a face for radio!)

    Come on people lots of views, so post some comments, remember we want this to be interactive!

    We will take all suggestions (within reason) into consideration.
