Smart Food • The Thai inspired blushing pink salmon burger

Spring is in the air The change of season brings about a switch in my mood for food that lifts my spirits and my energy levels.  Soft pink blossoms on trees evoke feelings of happiness and encourage me to get out of my winter slump with fresh healthy food. This Thai inspired blushing pink salmon burger is complimented by Graham Beck’s Gorgeous Sparkling wine, just what’s needed to keep me in the pink. Ideally the pink salmon burger should be served with a chilled glass of Gorgeous Sparkling wine and shared with friends for an afternoon of laughter. Shopping lists…

Smart Food • We love a feast

Planning a special occasion?  Here is some food for thought… We love hosting parties at Jack and Jill Food Co. but nothing makes us happier to plan the menu, make it and then serve you!

It’s an easy meal to make at home, that can’t flop because pretty much anything goes!…
