From My Kitchen

Not only do I love eating out.. I love cooking at home too. Here are some of the things I’ve been cooking up lately.

Fun Fact:  Before I assumed the moniker ScottCanEat, I went under the name ScottCanCook.

Louisiana Jambalaya

Jambalaya is rice and meat dish that has a Valencian Spanish (paella) and Provencal French (jambalaia) influence. I thought this dish would be perfect to spotlight the new to market rice by Rice Crafters

What started as a quick store cupboard dish morphed into an epic brunch using  Bloody Ben’s Bloody Mary Mix and Clarence Court Duck Eggs

From My Library


David Chang

Truly a modern classic. Its a cook book that has launched several street food business.  Really love everything that David Chang does so this on is a no bainer!

Eat Poke

Guy Jackson and Celia Farrar

If you’re bored with sushi and sick of ceviche but still crave the taste of raw fish, prepare to pile in for the latest pescatarian food craze: poké. It written by the founders of my favourite street food poke traders.


Salt Fat Acid Heat

Samin Nosrat

It was not until I read this book that I had my Ah-ha moment of why sometimes meals are a miss for me. It’s always something to do with the four components of #saltfatacidheat. Such a brilliant book for anyone who loves food and cooking. It’s not a traditional cookbook per se. Yes there are recipes, but it also reads like a textbook. Not a snooze fest text book either. It makes for a compelling bedside read.

Salted Caramel Dreams

Chloe Timms

This is the perfect gift for any Salted Caramel Addict. Sure you could buy them some salted caramel goodies, but as the saying goes.. Give a person a box of salted caramels they will eat them in a week, But Teach them to make Salted Caramel goodies they will make you caramel goodies for life. Or something like that

Essential Kitchen Kit

I’m kinda kitchen obsessed, well not kinda, I’, a full fledge kitchen obsessive.  I love getting great kit to help me cook.  I’m not one of those fad gadget buyers, which is clearly a lie. I buy loads of stuff, but loads of it goes back if it’s not up to scratch. 

So these are a few of my key pieces that I cant live without.

Hario Cold Brew Bottle

I freaking love cold brew. For the record I loved it before it was hip.  I’ve always had a penchant for cold coffee, so happy that its readidly availible.  I like to drink it year round. Such fun exploring different beans and roasts to see the suble variances. 

Makiing cold brew is really and you dont need any special kit. That said, this bottle from Hario makes it a dream with its integrated filter. the design is clever as it can be set on its side in the fridge if you dont have the space. 

Ninja Nutri Blender

I always wanted a Vitamix, but never could justify the cost vs the actual number of times that I’d actually use it.  So i did my research to find the next best option in a more reasonable price bracket.

All searches led back to this 1200k W Ninga Blender.  Its great for blending velvety soups, morning smooties and most importantly frappes. Im obsessed with making Matcha frappes in mine.  Hopefully you will be too..  

Sage Kettle

Im quite fond of Heston Blumenthol.  Mainly because of his obsession with perfection.  I see the same quality in myself, but i have the knowledge to let other people seach  perfection for me. 

This kettle is a brilliantly designed kettle with 5 variable heat settings so you can brew your tea and coffee with the perfect water temps. it has a slow openeing lid so hot water and steam does not spurt.  It has a clever keep warm function for those days when you need coffee in rapid sucession.  If that was not enough… its damn sexy.  

Lodge Cast Iron Skillets

Im obsessed with these little Lodge Cast Iron skillets. Not only are they super cute… they are super versatile. You can obviously make baked eggs in them, but you can bake scones (or biscuits) in them, individual fritattas, individual fruit cobblers and skillet cookies.  

What makes these so great is their ability to retain heat. They get hot and stay hot. I really want my next purchase to be the larger deep Lodge Cast Iron skillet to make fried chicken (among other things) in.
