Braised Pork Chops

Braised Pork Chops

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I absolutely love pork and doubt I’ll ever tire of it. As we are still in the grips of winter, stews and braises are the methods of cooking I look to – low and slow! Braised pork […]

The Gut Stuff Supperclub

The Gut Stuff Supperclub

Over the last year or so, I’ve been increasingly more conscious about the health of my gut. I’ve taken to drinking diluted apple cider vinegar (with the Mother) in order to help improve it. Now, I have no medical condition that I know of that […]

Happy New Year! There’s always lots of talk at this time of year of dryanuary, detox, diets and now veganuary. I don’t subscribe to any of these, so no diet recipes here my friends. What I hope to continue to deliver is simple, tasty recipes. […]

Chorizo, Squid and Chickpea Stew

Further to my last post on warm and comforting food here’s another lovely recipe, chickpea, chorizo and squid stew. It’s a tasty one-pot wonder. I often have a can of chickpeas in my store cupboard as it can help bulk out stews and curries when I’m either not […]

Winter calls for comfort food, foods that warm your cockles and hugs you from the inside. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I have fallen in love with my new pressure cooker. It’s such a great gadget and I have made so […]

Grilled Sweet Corn with Feta, Chilli, Sumac and Yoghurt

Hands up if when you were a child you used to eat corn on the cob like a typewriter cartoon-style? I did, and whilst I may not eat it like this nowadays, I still like to get stuck in with my hands and nibble on […]

Sarson’s Vinegar Factory Tour

No ‘fish and chips’ is complete without a dousing of vinegar. It’s that quintessential condiment that stealthily cuts through the grease of both fish and chips. It’s also great for pickling and marinades and is one of my store cupboard favourites. I have several different […]

Padrón Peppers with Feta Cheese

Padrón Peppers with Feta Cheese

Padron peppers are the Russian Roulette of the pepper world. It is claimed that one in ten of the usually mild pepper are super hot. To be honest I’ve eaten loads and have only ever had a hot one on one or two occasions, so […]

Curry Goat

Curry Goat

Curry goat is one of my all time favourite dishes and what differentiates a Caribbean curry goat to any other, is the use of scotch bonnet peppers. This amazingly hot pepper has a great distinctive flavour, which delivers a deliciously fruity note. However, the pepper […]

Comté, Goats Cheese and Onion Tart

Shop bought puff pasty is my latest ‘thing’ at the moment. It’s so versatile that I can’t believe I’ve only just gotten around to cooking with it. It’s dead easy to use and you can achieve great results with little effort.

Recipe: Steamed Lobster with melted Garlic Butter

  I cook fresh food as often I can and I’m lucky to be able to get the majority of my ingredients from some of the fabulous markets nearby. I would usually do a modest shop, cook in bulk and eat whatever it is throughout […]

Recipe: King Prawn Linguine in a Tomato and Caper Sauce

Weekends are when I spend the most amount of time cooking, but during the week I tend to fancy something quick and simple, so I can spend more time watching trash TV, socialising, reading or of course, blogging. Pasta, risottos, stir-fries and salads, among others, […]
