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

Salmon Sushimi

It’s a sushi affair

About a year ago I got a stall at the market and launched my Hot Sauce. 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 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

Wild Garlic Meatballs

Wild Garlic Meatballs

Reading the news is sometimes very depressing but every now and then something funny pops up. In this case all of the sudden, all over my social media feeds the news had broken that the famous Swedish meatball isn’t Swedish, it originates from Turkey. I have to say I did know that but I am … Continue reading

Wild Garlic Za'atar

Wild Garlic Za’atar

It seems like we have waited, and waited and waited for Spring to arrive. It came very slowly, challenged by late winter storms and icy winds from the East. Signs started to show up and the first to come up and brave the cold was crocus growing in a sheltered spot. They made me so … Continue reading

Rich beef stew

Rich beef and mushroom stew

I was looking in my fridge the other day and came to the conclusion that I didn’t have enough of any one ingredient to make a dish. I had a bit of everything and in the end the only solution was to make a stew. I just love when you can use up whatever you … Continue reading

Pulled Beef Pie

Pulled Beef and Marscapone Pie

Do you ever get a touch of food rage? I do sometimes when things go wrong, and they do but thankfully not very often. I make pasta every week for the market and usually it is a fairly smooth affair. Last week I had my heart set on making pulled beef ravioli. The beef was … Continue reading
