We’re on a pre-Easter high after sending out last week’s Koulourakia recipe – seems like you guys really enjoyed the chance to get creative with your baking!

We were chatting to our friend Joy over at Homestead Lovers earlier this week and told her all about our little experiments with sumac spice, which we used for a little citrus burst in our Koulourakia.

Joy was telling us all about the dehydrated citrus powders she’s created, and it got us thinking about how we could each mix our favourite flavours through old-fashioned/traditional Easter recipes.

One thing let to another, and we decided to hold our own little pre- Easter Challenge!

Joy’s going to share her very own Hot Cross Buns recipe with zingy citrus powder and MACE soon.  :O (And we can’t wait!)

But today we’re sharing the results of our latest baking experiment:

This Matcha Hot Cross Buns recipe.

Every Christmas for as long as I can remember, my parents have celebrated Christmas with a seafood and sparkling wine brunch, which is just what you need before a massive roast feast.

(P.S. If you’re looking for Christmas deliciousness, check out our list of Edible Christmas Presents!)

Alongside Wanderdad’s beloved king prawns mum would serve up her piece de resistance – smoky Oysters Kilpatrick straight from the oven. The smell of that heady mix of Worcestershire sauce, barbecue sauce and bacon always evokes those special mornings; torn wrapping paper strewn around the room, laugher and cheers and fun.

Since then our wandering adventures have led us experiment with the humble oyster, so today without further ado, let us present three of our favourite oyster recipes from our trip!
