Meal planning

I thought I would share our meal planning for the week. I am finding more and more information that supports my strong belief that modern Health issues has come from the inclusion of so much processed foods. Fat, sugar & salt are all natural preservatives so one or more of these ingredients will be in excess in any processed food. I also believe cooking is not hard and time consuming, sure you can make it a lot more complicated than what I prepare to get my family thru a busy week, if you have the time, and we do that sometimes too!

This is a pretty simple, standard idea of what we eat during winter, and we swap the dishes around every week. My kids all eat and enjoy a big plate of steamed veggies, or a big veggie packed savoury mince hotpot so I do tend to stick to what they like. I add local wallaby and goat meat to mince dishes, it is leaner, and frozen octopus pickled is a favourite in my lunch. We have Tins of local farmed salmon in the cupboard and smoked salmon in the freezer for a quick meal. We will get the odd white fleshed fish  Brendan will catch and still have a bit of fish well cryvacked in the freezer. Home made chicken nuggets, made by the kids, is pretty much on the menu every week and I like having the chicken carcass to make a soup from. I guess I’m lucky my kids will eat mostly what is put in front of them, but like how I was raised, when there is no other choice on offer, they’ll eat it. The carrot sticks put in the lunch box are generally eaten on the way home -when there is nothing else!

I try to avoid processed breakfast cereals as much as possible, but I do have a box in the cupboard, which I believe is of the better choice on offer, for when it’s needed. For example when one child doesn’t like the breakfast on offer, or we have slept in!!! Maggie who eats pretty much everything hates porridge but Steph, Oscar and I love it and it’s economical and good for us so I still want to cook it.

I also always have in the freezer veggie Dahl, veggie packed bolognaise sauce and soups, plus scrolls for easy lunches. Hope you find something helpful in this so please share with any friends who may be interested please. 💕

Seafood Everyday wins 3rd place in the Gourmand world cookbook awards

I was super excited to Find out that at the Gourmand world cookbook awards, Seafood Every day has won third place in the Best Fish and Seafood category! I was absolutely amazed that my soft cover user friendly book, self published with my recipes and photography designed by Ian Wallace and writing and editing by Katherine Burke and Sarah Carless had won the national award, then shortlisted but It was soooooo exciting to see that it was the 3rd best seafood cookbook in the world! The top 3 books get to use the best in the world branding, exciting!!! The book won the national catergory for Best woman chef too and made it to the shortlist of 7.

Seafood Everyday wins 3rd best Seafood Cookbook in the world


Another book that I contributed to in 2015,  in a volunteer role to raise funds for the Koonya Garlic festival, Garlic Feast by Janice Sutton, won the best self published catergory! Brilliant work Janice! Garlic feast is a beautiful big book with 12 of my recipes and recipes from other chefs and cooks involved in the festival, and other famous chefs who Janice somehow convinced to submit recipes such as Maggie Beer and Sally wise. I also helped Janice with some of the photography & styling about one third of the 100 recipe photos in the book are mine. It’s so good to see that our self published books produced in Tasmania, promoting Tasmania and Tasmanian produce stack up against all those other books!!

I’m just about finished The Tasmanian Pantry cookbook so I’ll be looking for a new project soon,so if you are thinking of self publishing please get in touch! If you have the right platform to sell your book from it can be profitable plus long lasting advertising for your business or fundraising organisation.  info@eloiseemmett.com
