Dinner at Chequeres restaurant with a bouillabaisse to fall in love with

One of the things I like when you move is that you meet so many new people. Sometimes you meet new friends that feel like old friends almost straight away and this is how I felt when I met L. Perhaps it helps that he is a chef and we have a lot in common, … Continue reading

A day in Margate and lunch at Yama’s Thai

Since moving to Kent I have to admit we haven’t had a proper look around in other towns and nice places. This summer I want to change that and we decided on a day out in what is called “the most up and coming town in Kent”, Margate. We picked a lovely day, it was … Continue reading

Barbecue with quinoa salad and refreshing coconut water drinks

Nothing tastes more like summer than a good barbecue. This summer got off to a late start and the barbecue has been standing there, idle. A friend was coming over, she currently lives in a flat and I thought it would be nice to do the full barbecue for her and spend as much time … Continue reading

Roasted teal with baby aubergines and roasted quinoa

The fishmonger I always buy my fish from is a bit of a treasure trove. The other week he advertised wild rabbit and I was thinking about it. Unfortunately I spent so long thinking about it he sold out before I actually got there. My plans for the rabbit went out the door and I … Continue reading

Truffled baby portobello mushroom

A while back I was talking to one of my friends about truffle. I said I place truffle butter under the skin of my Christmas turkey and he asked if I served it with mushrooms to bridge the flavours.

The comforting taste of a quiche

Quiche is one of my favourite dishes. I don’t make it very often and sometimes I cheat and buy ready made but it is just not the same. My love for quiche is not shared by M who will eat it but sort of look around for a main course afterwards. M’s hesitation doesn’t stop … Continue reading
