A mighty, meaty ragu

I used to be a season ticket holder to a great rugby team, the Harlequins. I always enjoyed going to watch them play and if the weather got too cold I could buy mulled wine by the flask. It would always warm me up nicely and take the edge of the cold. Sadly I had … Continue reading

Lamb chops with fruity bulgur wheat

Should you mix fruit with savoury dishes or not? Some hate it and some love it. I have a friend who just hates it and every time she does encounter it she will do a loud explanation (again) about why this is wrong. Whilst she is doing that I think it is a lovely combination. … Continue reading

Messing with a classic, a new take on lobster bisque

What is wrong with the classics? The dishes that have made it, sometimes through centuries. The truth is there is nothing wrong at all with the classics and they are called classics for a reason. It is only my inability to follow a recipe to the tee that makes me change pretty much any recipe … Continue reading

Kimchi and tofu chicken

I don’t know about you but I love to go to exotic food shops, browse and then buy some random things, as well as a few things I know. Last week I popped in to a Japanese supermarket in SOHO and got a few things I know, like kimchi and a few things I didn’t … Continue reading

Cod two ways and crispy roasted Brussels sprout leaves

Last week it was time for a Swedish visit to see friends and family. I only go a couple of times per year but why I can’t remember not to go in the winter is beyond me. Like a forgetful squirrel I seem to forget how dark it gets. It wasn’t very cold for the time of … Continue reading

Avocado salad and steak with pasta pesto

I was raised not to play with food but a ripe avocado in the fruit basket seemed like a playful invite. I teamed it with some blue cheese, tomato, herbs and it was a salad talking to me!   I sliced the avocado and brushed it with organic extra olive oil, M got is especially … Continue reading

07Oct_ParmesanCanape

A Global Parmigiano Reggiano Award

I entered my first foodie competition, the Global Parmigiano Reggiano Award. The brief said to use only three ingredients, parmesan being one of them. It is really difficult to limit yourself to so few ingredients. I did a lot of thinking and when I walked past the fishmonger and spotted some lobster I got an idea. It … Continue reading

The humble and delicious mackerel

Last week was a bit manic but I love how random life can be. I never thought I would cook for a film crew, or that it would be that much fun! The crew was so lovely and today I got a small glimpse of some of the film and it looked even better that … Continue reading

Feeding the film crew

So much in life is about timing and once that is right so much can unfold. This week feels like the result of various events. I have mentioned before that one of my friends is making a movie about trafficking, something that goes on all around us but still is so invisible if you don’t … Continue reading

Canapés, dumplings and dessert inspired by the colour red

They say that all things comes in three and in this case it might be true. We have had three different lots of friends to come visit within a short period and it has been so much fun. We had some very late summer weather, really amazing for this time of the year still spotting … Continue reading
