“I rather my customers complain about price than quality”, Mouhamad of MD Provodores tells me as we walked along A shed in Sydney Markets at 7am on a Wednesday morning.

Society Di Catania comes to Potts Point

"The owner of this building ate pizza at my Bondi restaurant and asked me to set up a pizzeria restaurant in his building in Potts Point", Jonathan Faro, the founder of Society Di Catania tells me today. And the owner of that building on 186-188 Victoria Road, Potts Point is not the only one who knows there is a good thing going. Opened for only one month, Society Di Catania focusing on Sicilian food in Potts Point owned by Italian, former pizza chef, Jonathan Faro is going to be a real hit with locals after what I tasted today.

Spiced Chicken Cous Cous

I love the spicy flavours in the region of North Africa and the Middle East and I’m sure I lived there in a past life. I like dishes with a balance of savoury and sweet flavours that are hearty but not heavy. I added turmeric to this dish to make the colours of the dish pop and so it is visually pleasing too if you are serving guests. It's a simple dish to make and if you are like me who likes to make a lot of dishes for people to try when they come over then this one doesn't take long at all and it's a dish to impress with its flavour combination. This dish was a hit at a New Years Day dinner at my place and was gone in minutes.
