28Aug_SquashToServe

Skirt steak and spaghetti squash and roasted cobnuts

I love seasonal eating and there are a few spaghetti squashes ripe in the garden, one of my favourite vegetables. Cob nuts came in to season last week and I can never resist them. The season is short so best make the most of it! Cob nuts are a part of the hazelnut family and I … Continue reading

30Aug_SoleDinner

A prawn starter and sole with clarified goats butter and fresh horseradish

The Black Pig butcher opened early this summer and ever since we have been able to get great produce. Instead of breakfast I decided to go there and get some nice bacon and a couple of sausages for brunch. I had some spaghetti squash  left over and I thought it would go with the bacon … Continue reading

A very Swedish trip

It is funny when you are an expat. It was more than fourteen years ago since I left Sweden but it will always be home, just like the UK is home. I guess home is part of where you have your friends and where you are feeling comfortable and I figure I got the best … Continue reading

27Aug_YellowPeaCurryDinner

Spaghetti squash with split yellow pea and aubergine curry

Time has been on fast forward lately and if I have been at home it feels like it was just for a few hours to get some sleep. This was my last week at work. After this I have decided to take a day off, completely just doing what I want to do and to … Continue reading

11Aug_BakedLasagna

A crowd pleasing beef and sausage ragu lasagna

The other week, before I quite realized I had agreed to make, and bring food for a fund raising event. Afterwards I wasn’t sure how I had agreed to do it but I haven’t been to a fund raising event like this since my days in the deep South, Tennessee and that is a long … Continue reading

The sun was shining, it was very warm and a gorgeous day. We all brought … Continue reading

08Aug_FishPlate

Ship O’hoy, it is a fish fest with pot roasted potatoes

My quest to eat more fish and less meat has allowed me to build a nice relationship with my fishmonger. He is a jolly and kind fella, he looks a little like Father Christmas and he generously shares his knowledge about all things fish. When I went there today he had a lot of fish … Continue reading

Some soul searching whilst cooking chicken in Asian broth

I am a firm believer in that you have to give some to get some. This time I decided to give something up to get something new and it feels more like doing a free fall, head first, jump. There is a unique window of opportunity to start something new and I decided to take … Continue reading

02Aug_SeabassDinner

Sea bass with black bean sauce and wasabi mash

I have had a bit of a dry spell lately when it comes to cooking. This is quite unusual for me but there is a lot going on and a lot on my mind at the moment. I will share more about that in another blog but I haven’t even thought of something new and … Continue reading

Victuals_Entrance

Victualing for food

There was a lot I didn’t know about my new home town, Deal when I moved here. It was mentioned in the Doomsday Book but it goes further back and some claim this is where Julius Cesar himself is said to have landed on the British shores. The town was a hive of activity for ship … Continue reading
