SAMESH cooking class presents: Classic Egg and Bacon Pie

SAMESH, 18/09/2020

SAMESH have still not been able tor resume their face to face cooking classes for PLHIV & older LGBTIQ+ community members, so Paul is continuing to develop recipes for you to try at home.

This week he brings us is a classic easy pie that “tastes great, is quick to make, can be eaten hot or cold, and uses a few simple fillings”.

“If you love bacon & eggs you will love this pie”, says Paul.

This recipe will make 1 large or 4 individual pies.

SAMESH cooking class presents: Rainbow Veggie Slice

SAMESH, 14/08/2020
SAMESH are still unable to hold their monthly cooking class for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk in person due to COVID-19, so Paul has tested another recipe for community members to try at home: a Rainbow Veggie Slice. 
 
Paul says: “This recipe has health and vegetarians in mind! It is slightly unusual in that it features a breakfast cereal as the secret ingredient – but don’t be put off, as you can’t taste it and it is a useful source of added fibre and a good binding agent for the ingredients!”
 
“The recipe suggests ‘stir fry’ veggies, but you can use any veggies of your choice”, says Paul. “And for those who can’t live without meat – add some bacon pieces or cook some bacon to have on the side.”

SAMESH cooking class presents: Pam’s Pumpkin & Corn Soup

SAMESH, 26/06/2020

Who doesn’t love a recipe from mum? This week we bring you Pam’s Pumpkin & Corn Soup – made by Paul’s mum especially for our recipe posts!

This recipe is a winter favourite that Pam makes whenever there is an excess of pumpkin in the vegie patch.

Pam is an old school home cook, but is always willing to test her skills trying something new – and come winter it is all about cooking warming meals and soups.

Pam is an avid fan of Masterchef and the Food Network, and she has a cupboard filled with recipe books old and new – which makes Paul’s life easier when he’s looking for a recipe to bring us for the SAMESH cooking class presents series! We continue to present recipes & tips while our face-to-face cooking classes for PLHIV and older LGBTIQ+ folk are unable to proceed.

NOTE: If you are a vegetarian, you can swap vegie stock for the chicken stock. Spring Gully Worcestershire Sauce is vegetarian and does not contain anchovies.

Baby born with “avoidable” congenital syphilis: experts

InDaily, June 04, 2020

The recent birth of a child in South Australia with congenital syphilis, despite the mother being previously diagnosed and treated for the sexually transmitted infection, has prompted SA Health concern about the quality of the treatment.

[A] public health alert [sent by SA Health] “reminds and advises health practitioners of their responsibilities” in managing syphilis cases and contacts.

General practitioner at not-for-profit sexual health service SHINE SA Amy Moten said the case was “significant” because it was an avoidable outcome.
