Seal watching and a great curry

This summer has been incredible, sun shining days on end and it has been unusually hot even in the evenings. We have made the most of the weather and basically lived in the garden. Some days were so hot we have been looking at what we can do to cool down. One day we went … Continue reading

Ham with glazed honey plums

Ham with honey & lavender plums

This summer has been nothing but amazing. The Beast from the East, the bad weather prolonged winter and it sometimes felt as if I was never going to be really warm again. We had to wait for summer but since it arrived it has been fantastic, sunny, hot and it has been possible to plan … Continue reading

Duck egg Carbonara

Duck egg Carbonara

A friend of mine suggested a day out. We needed a catch up and her suggestion included a farm shop so even better. The destination was Quex Park, a lovely country estate not too far from where we live.   The grounds are well kept, the cafe has the best cheese scone I have ever tasted, … Continue reading

Jersey oyster, shallots & ginger vinaigrette

Sweltering heat and delicious food

The summer has been absolutely amazing, hot and sunny and what a luxury to wake up every day and feel that it is beach weather! I haven’t had much time to go to the beach but I go every opportunity I get.   The dogs prefer early morning walks on the beach when the tide … Continue reading

Aleppo pepper crusted pork

Pork three ways

Summer seems to arrive a little at a time. We have a few hot days and then it goes really cold again, somehow it doesn’t quite get going. I invited some friends for dinner. I wanted to have a barbecue but the forecast was thunder storms and rain. The weather in the UK isn’t great … Continue reading

It was a great moment and since I can’t stop thinking about new recpies so the product range is ever growing with chilli jams, flavoured vinegars, spice blends and other products. On the back of the market I got … Continue reading

Foraged asparagus salad

Foraging on the beach

One of my favourite things to do is to go for a walk on the beach. It feels like the sky is a little bit nearer and nature is, well, all around you. No matter how often I go there the beach is different, sometimes it is full of shingles and the next day it … Continue reading

Wild Garlic Roasted Lamb

Wild Garlic Roasted Lamb

Ever since my friend showed me the most amazing wild garlic patch not too far from where I live I can’t stop picking it. The oven has been going pretty non stop dehydrating it, I could buy a food dehydrator but there isn’t even room for an extra box of matches in my kitchen, even … Continue reading

Berbere cooked whole chicken

Berbere spiced slow cooked chicken

Every now and then I come across a recipe or a flavour that I just know I have to make. When I came across the spice mix Berbere it sounded irresistable. Berbere is an African, mainly Ethiopian spice mix that is complex, fragrant and delicious. It smells inticing in the jar and even more so … Continue reading

smoked mackerel with teriyaki sauce and crispy rice

Smoked Mackerel Teriyaki with crispy rice

When I grew up my mom sometimes bought a whole, smoked mackerel. She removed skin and bones, boiled potatoes and stewed some spinach, a quick and easy lunch and I always loved it. Smoked mackerel tastes wonderful, if you have a fishmonger to buy it from go there and buy it. It will most likely … Continue reading
