These triple cheese and triple onion empanadas were inspired by two events.  The first was my visit to Tasmania in January.  There was a stall selling triple cheese and onion empanadas at the Salamanca Markets.  I didn’t eat any because I was full of scallop pie but the memory stayed with me.  The second inspiration […]

So when I couldn’t decide between witty or explanatory  I decided to go with plain old pragmatism. Who knew ice cream was so complicated? BEING MORE FRENCH Towards the end of last year, one […]

My post on the Lamington Layer Cake took me into a deep rabbit hole of eponymous food.  I mean who even who knew there was a Lord Lamington?  My new obsession has lead to this, a new segment of RFFMT provisionally called Name Plates.  I’ll try to think to think of something a bit better […]
