Parma Ham Chicken on a Leek, Broccoli, Calvo Nero and Pea Broth

I love autumn and winter greens. I can’t wait for Brussels sprouts to come into season. I tend to have odds and sods leftover of greens from other recipes so this dish uses them up perfectly. You can put any greens that you have knocking about into this recipe. It is so comforting to eat…

Light Leftover Beef Goulash

This is such a good way to use up leftover beef as the sauce keeps the beef nice and moist. It’s also really easy to make as it is just a one pot. I love the flavour of the mushrooms and sour cream instead of heavy cream. Ingredients 2 banana shallots, peeled and diced finely…

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…

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…

Chicken and Pea Aubergine Green Thai Curry

We went to our big Chinese supermarket to stock up on asian essentials while we were there we saw these pea aubergines. The only place we have ever tried them is in bali and they served them in a red Indonesian duck curry. They have quite a slightly bitter citrus flavour. This curry is simple,…

Fresh Crab and Asparagus Risotto

As I originally come from Torquay I have always liked crab as we had the famous brixham crab. Luckily up here in the southeast they have really good fish and shellfish so I’m still enjoying it. I’m funny with food as I go off an ingredient have a break and then like it again, asparagus…
