Coconut Cherry Smoothie

Before we talk about this smoothie, lets talk about a couple changes that we are making at Q+T. You may have noticed our menu has been tweaked to include more specific recipe options and a broader lifestyle category. That's because over the next few months we have decided to put a lot of our effort and attention into bringing you new recipes. There are a few reasons for this but the two biggies are 1....more

Coffee ice cream with caramelised almonds (vegan)

There is no other word for describing this creation than dreamy. Seriously, this ice cream is exactly the kind of stuff that appears in my food-related dreams. You know the kind, I hope. The dreams where you walk around a seemingly endless buffet table with all your favourite foods, piling everything on your plates and smiling like a lunatic.

Back in the day, before Brad Pitt gained and lost his swoon-worthiness, he played the part of “Paul”, an errant son in “A River Runs Through It“. This movie followed Paul and his brother as they fly-fished their way from boys to men, in the mountains of Missoula, Montana. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it – it was mesmerizing and haunting, heart breaking and thought provoking, it was filled with analogies that related back to this thing we call life....more
