Mexican Mole Chipotle

Mexican Mole Chipotle

I don’t even remember how I first learnt about Mexican mole now, it was so long ago, probably from watching something on television. Whatever it was, I’m extremely thankful for it, because this amazing sauce is truly the stuff of dreams, for those who can […]

Homemade Pizza for Weeknights

Homemade Pizza for Weeknights

Pizza is one of everybody’s favourite foods. It can be made with any combination of ingredients, but the classic cheese and tomato are still the goto for most people. There’s a reason the traditional flavour combinations hang around for generations because they work. Although it […]

Pan-Fried Duck Breast with Potato and Port

Pan-Fried Duck Breast with Potato and Port

This week’s recipe is a family favourite in our house. I suppose it’s kind of an amalgamation of our favourite things; a simply pan-fried duck breast for Su, and the fondant potato for me. Why do I prefer the potato to the meat? Well try making […]

Christmas Leftovers – Okonomiyaki

Christmas Leftovers – Okonomiyaki

So it’s the 26th of December, and yesterday you ate yourself well into a food coma from which you thought you’d never be able to recover. But, it’s getting towards lunchtime, and the feelings of hunger are starting to return in force. Fortunately, the fridge […]

Alternative Christmas Dinner with Salmon

Alternative Christmas Dinner with Salmon

So last week’s Christmas spectacular was a bit more of the standard-style British roast dinner type thing. This week I’m offering a more alternative Christmas dinner in contrast to the more ‘normal’ style by going for another British favourite, Indian (well my take on it […]

Christmas Roast Duck with the Trimmings

Hohoho! Christmas dinner has this terrible reputation of being a complete nightmare for whichever poor sap has been lumped with cooking it. But really, it’s just a glorified roast dinner with a few extra bits and bobs. With a bit of planning and work the […]

Squash Ravioli with Sage Butter

Squash Ravioli with Sage Butter

I’ve never been much of a pasta person when I go out to restaurants unless it’s an Italian place of course. It’s not the same everywhere, but in the UK many pubs and restaurants have a sort of mixed bag of items on the menu, […]

Cauliflower Pressure Cooker Soup

Cauliflower Pressure Cooker Soup

I recently heard a chef say that there’s two types of people; those who are soup people, and those who aren’t. I am definitely not a soup person. When eating out there’s just always something better on the menu when it comes to starters, and […]

Fennel Seed Hash Browns

Fennel Seed Hash Browns

Now, I know it’s not ‘traditional’, and most of the English breakfast purists would hang, draw and quarter me for it, but for me, hash browns are a real must when making the British culinary masterpiece. I really don’t understand why you would want any […]

Crispy Pork Belly with Beans and Salsa Verde

Crispy Pork Belly with Beans and Salsa Verde

Out of all the meats in the world, for me, pork is the king. Not only can you use the whole animal for true nose-to-tail eating, but the flavour is immense. If I could only eat one meat again for the rest of my life, […]
