Welcome to the Recipe Development page. We are dedicated to providing you with the latest and greatest in recipe creation, from nutrition and ingredient information to presentation and taste testing.
Our team of experts works tirelessly to ensure that every recipe we create is not only delicious but also nutritious. We take into account important factors such as calorie count, macronutrient balance, and allergen information to make sure that our recipes are suitable for a wide variety of dietary needs. Everyone has individual nutritional needs so make sure you speak with one of our Nutritionists at MP Nutrition to ensure it is right for you.
We have a wide range of recipes to suit every palate, from classic comfort food to exotic dishes from around the world. Whether you're a seasoned chef or just starting out in the kitchen, our recipes are easy to follow and include step-by-step instructions to make the cooking process as simple as possible. It’s best to follow them closely as slight variations can have a big impact on caloric and nutritional effect. For example, accidentally putting a tablespoon of coconut butter instead of a teaspoon could triple your calories from 40 calories to 120 calories. Ouch! However, everyone’s health goals are different. Calorie counting may not be your focus, instead boosting your meals full of micronutrients may be of high importance.
We specialise in creating delicious, healthy meals that will keep you feeling satisfied and energised. Our recipes feature a variety of fresh, seasonal ingredients that are carefully selected to ensure maximum flavour and nutrition. Check out our food recipes HERE.
We don't just stop with food, we also create delicious drink recipes for you to enjoy. From classic non-alcoholic (maybe a few alcoholic ones) cocktails to non-alcoholic beverages, we have something for every occasion.

Our team of professional taste testers at MP Nutrition ( which include our clients) work hard to ensure that every recipe we create is not only visually appealing but also delicious. We pay attention to every detail, from seasoning to texture, to make sure that every recipe we share with you is absolutely perfect.
Taste is one of the most important factors when it comes to food. It is what ultimately determines whether or not we enjoy a meal and whether or not we will want to eat it again. When we taste food, we use our sense of taste to detect the five basic tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami (savory). These tastes are detected by taste buds located on the tongue, and they send signals to the brain which then interprets the taste.
Taste plays a crucial role in determining the overall quality and appeal of a dish. A dish that has a good balance of different tastes, such as sweet and sour, can be more enjoyable and satisfying than one that is too sweet or too sour. A well-seasoned dish with the right balance of salt, sweet and sour can be very satisfying and pleasing to the palate. Taste also plays a role in the nutritional value of food. The taste of food can affect how much of it we eat.
Taste also plays a role in our emotional well-being. Eating a delicious meal can be a source of pleasure and can boost our mood. Food can be a source of comfort, and certain foods can even evoke memories and feelings of nostalgia. The taste of a food can also be a cue for our body to release certain hormones, such as serotonin, which can improve our mood and reduce stress.
We understand that people eat with their eyes first. That's why we put so much effort into making our recipes visually appealing. Our team of food stylists and photographers work to make sure that every recipe we share with you looks as good as it tastes.
Making food look good, also known as food presentation, can have a number of benefits on health.
Firstly, food presentation can make a dish more appealing, which can lead to an increase in the amount of food consumed. This can be especially beneficial for individuals who may have a decreased appetite, such as older adults or those recovering from an illness.
Secondly, food presentation can also affect our perception of taste. A dish that is visually appealing is often perceived as more delicious and satisfying, which can lead to increased enjoyment of the meal and greater satisfaction.
Thirdly, food presentation can also affect the nutritional value of a meal. Dishes that are visually appealing are often more balanced in terms of macronutrients and micronutrients, which can lead to a healthier overall diet.
Fourthly, food presentation can also help to promote healthy eating habits. For example, if a dish is presented in a way that makes it easy to portion out individual servings, it can be easier to control portion sizes and avoid overeating.
Finally, food presentation can also be used as a tool to educate individuals about healthy eating. For example, a dish that is presented in a visually appealing way can be used to promote the consumption of fruits and vegetables or to highlight the use of whole grains or lean proteins.
Australian ingredients are an integral part of designing recipes that reflect the diverse and unique culinary landscape of the country. The use of locally sourced and seasonal ingredients not only supports the Australian agriculture industry but also guarantees the freshest and most flavorful ingredients for the dishes.
One of the major benefits of using Australian ingredients is that it allows us to create recipes that are reflective of the diverse cultures and traditions that make up the Australian population. From Indigenous ingredients such as native fruits and herbs, to the influence of Asian and Mediterranean cuisines, Australian ingredients offer a wide range of flavours and textures to work with.
Australian ingredients also allow us to create recipes that are healthy and sustainable. The country is home to a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafood that are not only nutritious but also produced using environmentally friendly practices. This means that we can create recipes that are not only delicious but also good for the body and the planet.
Additionally, using Australian ingredients in our recipes allows us to support local farmers and producers. By choosing to use ingredients grown or produced in Australia, we are helping to keep the country's food production industry alive and thriving.
We believe that it's important to showcase the unique and delicious ingredients that Australia has to offer, and we're excited to continue doing so in our recipe development.
We believe that cooking should be simple and enjoyable. That's why we strive to create recipes that are easy to follow and don't require a lot of specialised equipment or hard-to-find ingredients. With our recipes, you'll be able to create delicious meals in no time.
Developing a nutritious recipe is a process that requires careful planning, research, and testing. At our recipe development team, we take great care in creating healthy and delicious dishes that are suitable for a wide variety of dietary needs. Here's a brief overview of our process for developing a nutritious recipe.
The first step in developing a nutritious recipe is research. We gather information on the nutritional content of different ingredients and consider factors such as calorie count, macronutrient balance, and allergen information. We also take into account any specific dietary requirements, such as gluten-free or vegan diets.
Next, we create a rough recipe and test it in our kitchen. We pay close attention to the taste, texture, and overall appeal of the dish. We tweak the recipe as needed, adjusting the ingredients and seasonings to achieve the perfect balance of flavours.
Once we are satisfied with the recipe, we conduct a nutritional analysis to ensure that it meets our standards for health and nutrition.
Once the recipe has been finalised, we share it with our audience and stand behind the nutritional value and taste. We strive to create recipes that not only taste great but also promote a healthy lifestyle. By following this process, we are able to create nutritious recipes that are both delicious and good for the body.
