Summer Squash and Lentil One Pot Curry

I love dished that you can just throw everything in a pot and it looks after itself. The base recipe I used for this was lightly spiced so I cranked it up to our taste and added in garam masala. Summer squashes are a lot more softer so easy to work with. I bulked it…

Pork Fillet Saltimbocca with Jersey Royals

Sometimes it is so nice to have an old fashioned simple meal. This recipe is easy to make and all the flavours are so comforting. I grew my own sage this year and it tasted so fresh and who doesn’t like crispy prosciutto. I’m also making most of the jersey royals they are so creamy…

Delicious Treacle Tart

I had some bread left over and decided to have a go at treacle tart. It was delicious and a nice change from bread and butter pudding. It set beautifully and wasn’t too sugary. I found it quite easy to make you just have to remember to let it cool and set before slicing. I…

Teriyaki Tempeh on an Asian Salad with Miso Aubergine

I thought this was mine and P’s first time trying tempeh but he reminded me we had it Bali. I remembered it straight away, we had hired a car and we were exploring the island. It was lunchtime so we looked out for a restaurant. Nestled amongst the rice paddy fields was a restaurant that…

Cod and Lentils with a Red Wine Sauce

P and I had a long weekend in Winchester, it was a foodie weekend due to the restaurants we visited. Our first stop was hugh’s river cottage restaurant which served lovely food and the decor was beautiful. The next night we went to rick steins restaurant I had a shellfish platter and P had monkfish…

Wild Garlic, Leek and Thyme Pork Pies (no gelatine)

So I’m still making the most of my foraged wild garlic. I will post my salt, oil and pickled buds next but I had to share these pork pies first as they were so delicious. Being British I love a pork pie but I’m not keen on the massive jelly layer or claggy pastry, so…

Foraged Wild Garlic, Chicken, Chorizo and Cheese Croquettes

As we are still in lockdown I went a bit mad foraging for wild garlic. So far I have made wild garlic salt, oil and pickled buds (recipes to come). We managed to have a roast chicken on Sunday and I picked off the leftover meat. With the carcass I made a beautiful chicken stock…

Moroccan Spiced Lamb on Warm Hummus

I tried a version of this in a pub on the outskirts of Croydon which is Paulie’s stomping ground. I thought it sounded exciting and it was really tasty. As I love loads of flavour I added a lot more spice to mine, they only used cumin but I added more for a depth of…

Honey and Thyme Baked Feta Cheese Salad with Beetroot Salsa

Feta is a healthy option for a salad, I really fancied doing something different with it and thought I would have a go of baking it. I love the new texture the feta has, it’s warm, fluffy and slightly gooey but still holds it shape. The honey works so well I’ve had it in a…
