Nico Moretti’s Sri Lankan Curries

Nico Moretti’s Sri Lankan Curries

We were fortunate enough to have Nico Moretti for his Sri Lankan Curry Cooking Class a couple of weeks ago. We all enjoyed the class so much and the food was delicious. One of our friends was unable to attend so we said we would make all the recipes for a shared lunch so she could try them. I wanted to make all the recipes so made the ones I hadn’t already made a few days later for a family dinner.

This was a very special class I was able to attend with only 10 places available. We were invited into the Maha kitchen to watch Shane make his signature dish – Chicken Kibbeh Tagine with White Fig, Eggplant and Almonds. Which was so delicious I just had to make it myself when I returned home.

The Best Thermomix Dips

The Best Thermomix Dips

I’m in love with homemade dips the flavours are far superior when you make them yourself and the Thermomix makes them super easy to make. I will admit to being a dip snob, if someone were to serve me a bought dip there is no way I would touch it!!

The dangerous thing is they are so delicious I almost always end up eating a dip all by myself!! I’m going to attempt to list all my favourite dips – I warn you the list will be long. I will keep adding pictures and recipes as I go.

Creamed Spinach Dip from the Devil of a Cookbook – delicious served warm too.
The Best Avocado Dip
Pesto
Hummus
Cauliflower Hummus topped with Spiced Beef
Cream Cheese Herb & Garlic Dip

Nico Moretti has his Cooking Passions cooking school in Perth and does foodie tours around the world with his wife Belinda. I can highly recommend the tours, after joining the one to Japan last year. Nico also joined us at Lake Como for our Thermomix Emerald Class Trip and for Thermofest in Vietnam. You can buy Nico’s cookbooks here. He also has recipes on cookidoo including a collection called Celebrate Summer. Here are some of the delicious recipes I have tried so far.

Lemon Curd & Rhubarb Cake

Lemon Curd & Rhubarb Cake

I had some lemon curd left over (recipe from the basic cookbook) and thought I would swirl it through a cake mixture ( I used the basic cake recipe from the In the Mix cookbook by Dani Valent) I also have rhubarb in my garden so decided to add that to the cake too & it was delicious!!
