Savoury monkey bread - sourdough and vegan Green Gourmet Giraffe

The idea came to me as I sat watching tv on the last saturday night before term 4 of school started.  My usual bread dough was ready to sit overnight and I dreamed of making the most of the last day of the holidays by making monkey bread.  So I kneaded oil and sugar into the dough.  It was a mess so I don't recommend you do this but I can tell you that the other half of the dough made a wonderful soft bread.

But today I am here to tell you about the monkey bread so I have halved the dough in the recipe below.  (But I recommend you double it because you can always use a loaf of bread even if it is to give to a friend!) 

I hadn't really known much about monkey bread but apparently it is usually a sweet bread baked with lots of little balls of dough dipped in butter and sugar.

The idea came from the recipe for savoury monkey bread in the Coles supermarket magazine many months ago.  The idea stayed in my head because this bread with lots of little different coloured balls looked so beautiful.  And my overnight sourdough bread is so easy, that it will adapt to any idea.

A private palace of art - Leighton House in London "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-1896) built the Kensington studio-house from 1865 on. With the Victorian art market booming, and domestic taste fascinating the middle classes, Leighton needed to demonstrate his importance. After all, he was both president of the Royal Academy and chief exponent of the new Aestheticism.

Leighton House was to be his link to a special society, so #2 Holland Park Rd needed to be special. Fortunately Leighton was enjoying increasingly high fees for his paintings, and he also had family money. Leighton and his architect, George Aitchison, chose the decorative elements for their aesthetic effect, wherever they came from. The result incorporated styles from Arts and Crafts, Orientalism and Baroque.

Adding to the building for years, he ended up with one of the most talked-about houses in the country. Around the dome was a super frieze made up of tiny tiles, commissioned from artist Walter Crane (1845-1915), who did the work in Venice and then transported the finished product to London. William Morris curtains were loved. Orientalist Iznik wall tiles and the finest Arabian and Persian artwork were collected on his regular trips to Turkey and Syria. Sometimes he commissioned friends to buy the art objects abroad, including the Japanese and Chinese porcelain.

Leighton was a leading painter. His main interest lay in history painting and neo-classicism, and his most instantly recognisable work is Flaming June. Viewers also value his plein air oil sketches, made on his North Africa and Middle Eastern travels.


Flaming June,
by Lord Frederick Leighton, c1895
Tate Britain


On Sundays, visitors gazed at the spectacular 1877 Arab Hall, with its golden dome, intricate mosaics, walls lined with beautiful Islamic tiles and indoor fountain. Colleagues attended one of Leighton's famous musical soires, complete with its minstrels' gallery. Intimate friends were invited to spend the evening in the red dining room with glittering Middle-Eastern ceramics.

Or they lounged in the private and relaxed Silk Room, with its paintings by Tintoretto and Millais. Certainly it was homo-social; he filled this cosy room with pieces by friends such as Millais,...

Tofu scramble with cashew cream Green Gourmet Giraffe

Isn't it ironic that I had a busy working month in September when doing Vegan MoFo and then the first week of October I was on holiday and able to spend more time cooking and blogging.  Actually I spent more time cooking than blogging but I had time to make some of the dishes I had hoped to blog during Vegan MoFo.  One of these was tofu scramble with cashew cream.

This is a rather simple dish that was inspired by a scramble I made years ago with vegveeta cheese sauce.  There was something wonderful about the creaminess and the way the cheese sauce had little brown crispy edges.  So I tried a simple scramble with my current favourite cashew cream.  It worked really well and worked nicely with a side dish.  I like tofu scrambles but they can be a bit lacking in texture.  This is a revolution in the way I make tofu scramble.  I am delighted to find that with a bit of leftover cashew cream sauce I can have most excellent scramble quickly.

ECCV ENCOURAGES VICTORIAN LOCAL COUNCILS TO PARTICIPATE IN WORLD REFUGEE DAY "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne.arts"

ECCV ENCOURAGES VICTORIAN LOCAL COUNCILS TO PARTICIPATE IN WORLD REFUGEE DAY

Tuesday June 12th, 2018

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is hosting a global campaign #WithRefugees and it is inviting Refugee Welcome Zone Mayors around Australia to participate in an initiative to highlight the important work cities all over the world are doing to promote inclusion, bring communities together and support refugees. 

ECCV encourages Victorian local councils to consider participating in this global initiative to mark this significant international day. ECCV Chairperson Cr. Kris Pavlidis who is also the Mayor of Whittlesea City Council states it is essential that local councils lead their communities with compassion and unity.

ECCV will host its annual event Campfire Stories to acknowledge the importance of mutual understanding. The event is an experience where every day Victorians from refugee backgrounds share their stories.

The first of two Campfire Stories for 2018 will be in partnership with Welcome to Australia and Asylum Seekers Resource Centre on June 19th at Siteworks in Brunswick.

The second 2018 Campfire Stories will be in partnership with Welcome to Australia and Multicultural Arts Victoria as part of the Emerge in Yarra festival on July 25th at the Abbotsford Convent Precinct. To book, please register using Eventbrite.   

Cr. Kris Pavlidis says the ECCV is excited about local municipalities leading the way in their communities.

World Refugee Day is on 20 June 2018.
