Any soup based on a proper chicken stock, made with free-range bones (feet included!) and vegies, is wonderfully homey and nourishing, whether it's a Jewish chicken noodle soup, Vietnamese pho, Greek avgolemono or this Chinese chicken and sweet corn soup. We have fond memories of this soup from childhood (oh, the Golden Fish restaurant in Rose Bay! How did they carve those carrot phoenixes?), where it would precede a 70s banquet of honey king prawns, beef and black bean and sweet and sour pork

Katherine is a brilliant test case for new dishes, especially those that smack of health, fashionability or hippy weirdiness. Her natural resistance is so high, her prejudices so entrenched, that only the strongest contenders can survive. And so it was with bliss balls, which I'd been bleating to her about for some time.

Strawberries and rhubarb are a heavenly combination, with the earthy tangy of rhubarb offsetting the sweet fragrance of the strawberries. Spend 10 minutes making this and you will be rewarded by at least a week's worth of luxurious breakfasts (on granola with a dollop of yoghurt, on French toast, on pancakes...) or top with a crumble for a quick dessert for six.

These deliciously nutty burgers, with pesto flavours of basil and parmesan, are "meaty" enough to satisfy even the most hardened carnivore.
