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

16July_SardineDinner

Fresh sardines, roast baby beetroots with whipped avocado and feta

I come from Gothenburg where fish is plentiful and very, very fresh. Despite this there is a saying that in Gothenburg they only eat mackerel, salmon and cod. I have discovered I am not far off it but I do like a few more kinds of fish and sardines is one of them. I was very … Continue reading

Rösti loaded with cod and lobster and a Cinderella moment

I haven’t posted as many blog posts lately as I would like to. It seems that life has been turned up a few notches and if time keeps going this fast I will be 90 years old in no time! There has been some amazing events, a few trips to Dublin and I always meet … Continue reading

13July_PulledBrisket

Cured, slow Prosecco and Chipotle cooked, pulled brisket

It isn’t very often I get a specific request for dinner but as the summer seems to have left us for a cold and rainy spell, along with the fact that there is a new butcher, a slow cooked shoulder of lamb sounded like a great idea. We went to the butcher, the Black Pig … Continue reading

Raw strawberry and raspberry jam with Chia seed

One of the ingredients I got from The Eco Green Store was chia seeds. Chia seeds are hailed as a superfood, it is easy to sprinkle on your food to add that extra crunch and health boost. The Eco Green store strives to make fairtrade and organic food cost efficient and available to everyone. I love … Continue reading

11July_SlicedMushrooms

Intense mushroom broth with seafood and noodles

The week has been a little strange. The weather turned and somehow the summer seems to have traveled up north, we can only hope it will come back. The work on the kitchen seems to progress at a painfully slow rate. The tiles went up and are looking amazing but there are things everywhere to … Continue reading

Wild fennel poached salmon with tapioca and broad bean risotto

As a blogger I get approached sometimes to try products or to review a restaurant. I usually don’t take the offer up but when I got an offer to select some products from The Green Eco Store I couldn’t resist for several reasons. Few companies have a true social conscience but this is someone who … Continue reading

A pescatarian barbecue and smoked mackerel brunch

I am sure that some of our London friends did wonder why we left for the Kent seaside but with the kitchen coming along more are making their way to come visit. This weekend out friend did something as unusual as leaving her Notting Hill patch to come and visit. We haven’t met in quite … Continue reading

My inner carnivore came out at The Smokehouse Islington

The last few years I have made a conscious effort to eat less red meat and since moving to the seaside, more fish and always more vegetables. However I like meat and when I went to The Smokehouse Islington my inner carnivore came out in full force and I have to say if you are … Continue reading

29June_PrawnBake

A prawn bake with a cheesy courgette bechamel

Whilst the work is going on with the kitchen I haven’t stopped buying food. The majority of the food I had bought was for freezing and I guess that was a sign of my cooking withdrawal setting in. The kitchen isn’t finished yet but I can now cook! I had a bag of frozen prawns … Continue reading
