10Oct_CauliflowerSoup

Cauliflower soup with crispy chestnut and sesame seed topping

I love to eat what is in season and if it is local, even better! At the moment there is an abundance of cauliflower. It is so delicious and so cheap I have bought lots of them. After having made cauliflower bake, cauliflower rice and cauliflower salads as well as serving it on the side … Continue reading

12Oct_PartCake

Tart with crème patisserie and lots of fruit

A friend called with a lovely invite for a Sunday lunch, one of those mid afternoon, full on three course lunches that starts with, perhaps a g&t! I offered to make a starter or a dessert and this was greeted with great enthusiasm, even if underlined that I shouldn’t feel obliged. I thought it would … Continue reading

11Oct_Pork&Mash

Crispy pulled duck and glazed pork with kimchi mash

A friend of mine is doing a short movie on a topic that most of us might never see and hopefully never experience but that is there, like the black side of society. The movie is about sex trafficking, a horrible and very lucrative trade that is on the rise. You can find more information … Continue reading

Ramen salmon and halumi burger

Ever since I heard of a ramen burger I have been so curious to try one. I have never found them on any menu but one day I came across this blog and decided to make one myself. It seemed waiting to find one on a menu was a long way off. I had never … Continue reading

07Oct_RavioliDinner

Lobster and avocado ravioli

I was out power walking this morning. The weather didn’t seem to be able to decide, it was sunny but raining, cold in the wind and warm in the few rays of sunshine. It was still beautiful and it is a great way to start the day. On the way home I passed the fishmonger … Continue reading

Chilean seabass in tofu broth

I was in London thinking about dinner and rather than going shopping for clothes, shoes or handbags (even if this still happens), I headed to Japan Centre on Shaftsbury Avenue to stock up on Asian ingredients and tofu. I came out with two bags full and I thought I could carry just a little bit … Continue reading

Cauliflower rice with mackerel in vinegar and clearing the fridge

The weather has been amazing lately, days are incredibly hot and it feels a bit awful to spend time inside. There is a pub about an hours walk along the beach from where I live and we decided to take the afternoon “off” and walk there for lunch. The day was beautiful and I love … Continue reading

28Sept_TofuWithPesto

Watercress pesto and crispy tofu

Sometimes I have no idea what to have for dinner and I go down to the kitchen to see what is around and make something from what I can find. I had some salmon in the freezer so I took that out to defrost and was then spending some time thinking about what to eat … Continue reading

Pav Bhaji, Indian street food

A friend of mine, Ms M introduced me to Dishoom, a fab Indian restaurant in London serving Bombay street food “tapas” style.  Ms M ordered some Pau Bhaji and said I would love it. It was delicious, a vegetable mash served with buttered, toasted bread. I would also recommend their black lentil dal, the paneer … Continue reading

01Oct_SquashHummus

Mezze inspired chorizo stuffed pork loin with squash hummus

My friends were talking about how they had a great Lebanese meal when they were last in London. I have to admit that it gave me food envy, I have no idea where the nearest Lebanese restaurant would be here and they are so plentiful in London! I thought I would make some dishes myself but … Continue reading
