    Meal at Smoko:

    Can’t beat John’s home made Bacon and Egg Pie –
    What you’ll need:
    4 sheets pre-rolled flaky puff pastry
    6 rashers bacon, roughly chopped
    8-10 eggs
    ½ - ¾ cup Wattie’s Frozen Peas
    1 egg, beaten, or milk
    His Method:
    1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 24 x 20-cm ovenproof dish.
    2 Use 2 sheets of pastry to line the base and sides of the dish. Layer the dish with half the bacon and break eggs on top, breaking the egg yolks if desired. Season with pepper before sprinkling over the peas and the remaining bacon.
    3 Brush the edges where the pastry will join with beaten egg or milk. Lay the remaining pastry over the top and seal the edges. Brush the pie top with beaten egg or milk and make a slit in the top to allow the steam to escape.
    4 Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes.
    Tips from the man himself:
    Instead of joining the pastry, sit 2 sheets of pastry on a lightly floured board, one on top of the other, and with a rolling pin roll out until you get the desired size.

  • Things We Like: Where They Create

    I never turn down the chance to explore the workplace of someone in an imaginative or artistic field. It is exciting and inspiring to see today's creatives mysterious hideouts.

    Paul Barbera agrees. That's why he started 'Where They Create', a photographic insight into where the magic actually happens. 

    He navigates cluttered painting lofts in Berlin, Monster Children's keyboard bashing arena in Sydney, the cutting tables at Stokholm's Acne Studios, model boat builder sheds in Africa, among many others.

    He also printed and bound this project which is available here.
