Seafood street party

Have you tried exchanging goods vs favours instead of using money? My neighbour does the most amazing meringues and was asked if she could make some for a friend. The friend offered to pay but this was rejected. The friend still wanted to give something back and when her son came home after a very … Continue reading

Spicy cranberry salad with paneer cheese

Ancho chile and cranberry salad with paneer cheese

This morning I opened my eyes and did what I usually do, I reached for my phone to see what is going on in the world.

The other day I saw a fish I have never seen before at the fishmonger and it was called Tobay sole. It had a pink hue and I was told it is similar in taste and texture to Dover sole. In fact I also got a funny story how the fishmonger decided to go for a … Continue reading

cod with beetroot homous

Cod with beetroot hummus
