When living on the 12th floor there are limitations on cooking outdoors. No wide open spaces for campfires here but I still manage to do a significant amount of cooking on the balcony. Fortunately winters in Sydney are not as cold as many places. About 8°C (46°F) now at 3am but earlier when cooking it was about 12°C (53°F) outside.
I had real warming winter fare tonight. I made rissoles with beef, rice flour, breadcrumbs, rosemary, oregano, paprika, and peppers. I cooked onion and tomato with the rissoles and had it with potatoes pumpkin and cabbage and a dark rich gravy. The sort of old fashioned food that gets me through the night. Yum!
It is a bonus that I get to enjoy the glorious view of the city while I cook. I feel very fortunate.
