Tuesday saw the launch of 3 new products in store and online. We've got heaps of new items arriving for Christmas so we will keep you posted here, through Instagram, Facebook and both Cottesloe and Applecross stores.

The first cab off the rank was the new C Si Bon Fragrant Fish Curry. I am a great lover of curry and can eat it any day of the week. Definitely in my Mauritian blood. This is a subtle curry with a little heat and heaps of flavour. We've blended kaffir lime leaves with fresh coriander, green chillies, spring onions, garlic, ginger and lime juice to create a fragrant base. To this we've added coconut milk and poached the seafood until it's just cooked. Serve this with fluffy coconut rice or jasmine rice with extra fresh coriander. So good!

Next in line is our new Duck a L'Orange. Duck is my favourite thing to eat when I'm feeling indulgent. We placed the confit of duck on a bed of scalloped royal blue potatoes that were steamed and then smothered them with an orange sauce made using fresh orange juice, ginger, brandy and thyme. Just pop in the oven until the duck is good and crispy. It falls off the bone and is delicious served with a endive salad or steamed green beans. Simply heaven!

Last but not least is our Christmas Stuffed Chicken Thighs. This conjures images of snow covered fields in the French countryside and a crackling wood fire burning in the living room. We sautéed onions, garlic, thyme, bacon, pine nuts, mushrooms and porcini mushrooms with truffle oil before stuffing into the chicken thighs, wrapping in prosciutto and then drizzling in olive oil and baking until golden and crispy. Serve with our gorgeous C Si Bon Potato Gratin or Cauliflower Gratin and a green salad or steamed greens.
