Smokey Pork Spare Ribs April 26, 2016 15:58

Telegraph Hill Smokey Ribs 


  • 700g Pork ribs
  • 100mls Telegraph Hill Manuka Smoke infused Balsamic Drizzle
  • 100mls Telegraph Hill Traditional Olives brine (eat the olives while cooking this recipe)

Carefully Slice the pork ribs along the side of every second bone, so that you are left with a nice wedge of meat on each side of the bone you will cook.  Discard the bare bones.

Combine the ribs, olive brine and Manuka Smoke infused Balsamic Drizzle in a heavy pot and gently slow simmer until tender.  Place ribs on an oven tray, reduce remaining sauce until sticky and brush onto ribs.  Finish for 5 minutes under grill for super sticky ribs.  Watch they don't burn!

Garnish with sesame seeds.

You can use any cut of chicken for this recipe, and bake some vegetables alongside for a super easy meal.  The bonus of not many dishes makes me smile every time I make it!

  5. Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and empty the remaining sauce on top.

Wasabi, Potato & Apple Salad January 29, 2014 09:19

This recipe created by Lyn Potter & published on the Breeze Website. Wasabi, Potato & Apple Salad

This potato and apple salad is great for a barbecue. It was inspired by a traditional Dutch recipe which is flavoured with a mustardy mayonnaise. I substituted Telegraph Hill Wasabi Vinaigrette which is locally produced. The wasabi in this dressing gives it an appealing Asian twist and a slightly peppery finish. We like it best while still warm, but it can also be stored in the fridge for a day or so.


  • 500 gm of potatoes
  • 3 hardboiled eggs 
  • 3 medium size red skinned crisp sweet apples 
  • 1 spring onion (white part only) 
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Telegraph Hill Wasabi Vinaigrette
  • The juice of up to half a lemon
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Boil the peeled potatoes until they are tender. When cool enough to handle cut them into chunks.
  2. Wash the apples and dice.
  3. Peel and chop the hardboiled eggs.
  4. Slice the white part of the spring onion finely.
  5. Mix all of these gently together in a salad bowl.
  6. Stir the Wasabi Vinaigrette in. Sharpen the flavour with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Keep tasting and adding up to the juice of half the lemon depending on how sweet/tart the apples are. Season to taste with salt.

  • 1/2 long sweet red pepper ( seeds removed and cubed)

  • Chopped coriander to garnish

  1. Marinate the fish in the juice of 2 lemons for at least 1 hour.

  4. Leave in the fridge for a further hour ( or longer) to allow the flavour of wasabi vinaigrette to mingle with the other ingredients.

Variation: Add some cubes of avocado just before serving.

Simple Steak Sauce July 10, 2013 12:24

A dollop of Olive Tapenade

A good glug of Manuka Smoke infused Balsamic Drizzle

Mix these two with a spoon using ratios to your desired consistency, I use about equal amounts of each, and drizzle this onto your steak.   I've always loved recipes like this, using the 'precise' measurements of a dollop and a glug!  

Enjoy your creative time in the kitchen!
