Offered to make the salad for this weekend's gathering? No sweat! This hearty dish is full of flavours and textures it looks great, too.
In a region famous for its citrus, grapes and nuts, Karen whips up a delicious chicken and cous cous dish using local ingredients. On a house boat floating down the beautiful Murray River Karen creates a tasty and surprisingly easy dish to celebrate the wonderful flavours of Mildura.
This is the perfect stylish snack for a Melbourne Cup picnic celebration. Karen’s Spanish inspired empanada is filled with a mouth-watering centre of smoked trout spiced with chillies and paprika wrapped in a crispy pastry, making them a sure bet winner.
Go for gold with this winning combo – layers of pastry and an oh-so scrummy filling, all topped off with plump baked tomatoes.
