Raspberry Meringue Pies 

Makes 12

1 cup frozen raspberries, defrosted
1 tablespoon cornflour
¼ cup sugar
12 individual sweet shortcrust pastry cases
1 egg white
2 tablespoons caster sugar 

Process raspberries with a stab blender until smooth. You will need 1/2 cup raspberry puree. Combine cornflour and sugar in small saucepan. Gradually stir in raspberry puree until mixture is smooth. Stir constantly over heat until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat and spoon mixture into pastry cases.

Beat egg whites in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, gradually add sugar, beating until sugar has dissolved between each addition.   

Pipe or spoon over pastry cases, ensuring filling is covered. Bake at 230°C for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.


End of year madness

November was a crazy busy month in (and out of) the studio, and we are not even going to mention "Christmas"...



Cooking up a storm

Laura and Mitch recently had a lazy weekend up in Sydney where they attended an awesome pasta making cooking class at Salt Meats Cheese, so they could learn how to use their pasta maker.  And we should note that Mitch was NOT on Masterchef, despite having the apron to prove it! 

Alethea's Archibald Journey

Alethea took the journey out to Ballarat to check out the 2016 Archibald prize exhibition. 

Melbourne Music Week

Her Sound, Her Story is the culmination of an exhibition and video series of the same name by photographer Michelle Grace Hunder and filmmaker Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore. The intimate exhibition, which was shown at Emporium Melbourne throughout MMW, profiled over 40 women working in the music industry, including Banoffee, Clare Bowditch and Renée Geyer.


Alethea's short sightedness

We found out this month that Alethea is short sighted, hence why we have photos of Missy Higgans and Temper Trap that are teeny, tiny. Oh no, that's not it...she was just sitting REALLLLY far back!
