When I get back home to Brisbane in September, I’ll be teaching some cooking classes. The first classes I offer will be for beginners: new cooks looking to develop a foundation in good kitchen skills. In these classes, we will cook a series of dishes that will teach a set of skills. (For example, the photos in this post are of paneer-making and then making matar paneer – both MUCH easier than you might think).

In the 7 months since I started The Good Soup in its current form, Oliver has gone from this to this my garden has gone from this to this and this and this and so much more. And then there’s you, dear readers.
