Chicken with Almonds & Grapes

Chicken with Almonds & Grapes

Have you ever noticed how grapes never get used in cooking? Of course, they are best eaten on their own as a snack but they mostly feature in jellies, juice and desserts like fruit salad. This severely underused fruit can also be used to spruce up any salad or sandwich and will make a savoury […]

Pork Sausages with Onion & Red Wine Gravy

Pork Sausages with Onion & Red Wine Gravy

Confession time. Looking at these photos you will realise that I’m a lover of all things saucy. Plus I was darn hungry when doing this photo shoot and went a little bit overboard. For me it is utter bliss if there is sauce with meat, sauce with mash, sauce with vegetables, sauce with EVERYTHING. For […]

Pork Sausage & Red Onion Pasta Bake

Pork Sausage & Red Onion Pasta Bake

This is comfort food at its best. It doesn’t have to cost an arm or a leg either in order to be tasty. What I particularly liked was the sweetness of the onions that came through. Although it is a bit of trouble to make, it is so worth it. Did I mention Neil prepared […]

Coq au Vin

Coq au Vin

After trying out countless of Coq au Vin recipes, I chucked them all away and cooked the dish from scratch….my way. I never did get hold of a rooster as is the traditional way of preparing this classic dish. Nor did I drown the bird in a whole bottle of red wine. None the less, […]

Caribbean Chickpea & Sweet Potato Casserole

Caribbean Chickpea & Sweet Potato Casserole

One thing you’ll quickly realise when you come to live in the UK is that its residents talk about the weather…a LOT. It’s not because they’re trying to be polite in all their Britishness but the weather here is utterly, truly and completely unpredictable (can I add horrible too?).

Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Thighs

Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Thighs

The person who coined the term Blue Monday forgot about Wednesdays. Now I’ll do the job properly and call it Worst Wednesday. It’s a typical gray, windy and wet day here in the UK but still I braved the cold because Gabriel had to go to playgroup this morning.

Prawns (Shrimp) in Spicy Coconut Sauce

Prawns (Shrimp) in Spicy Coconut Sauce

As a long suffering wife I can deeply sympathise with anyone who has to put up with a fussy eater. While I love Western food, especially from the French cuisine, there is a whole other gastronomical experience awaiting you if you head East. Luscious coconut, hot chilis, tangy tamarind, sweet lemon grass and cheeky kaffir […]

Chicken Chasseur

Chicken Chasseur

Something I haven’t written about yet was our trip to Paris two years ago. After having seen tonnes of American movies it was my understanding that it is the most magnificent and romantic city in the world. Since the French is famous for their food, I thought it won’t be necessary to do any research […]

Pork Sausage, Leek, Carrot & Butter Bean Casserole

Pork Sausage, Leek, Carrot & Butter Bean Casserole

Potatoes, or more specifically mash, are almost always on our daily dinner plates, so this dish is a refreshing change. It is so easy to forget about the filling and nutritious qualities of legumes and every time I do come around to eating them I can’t help but ask myself why don’t we eat this […]

Mussels with Leeks, Sherry and Cream

Mussels with Leeks, Sherry and Cream

Once in a while I get a craving for mussels and this is the recipe I usually prepare to satisfy my need. It’s dead easy to follow and very quick to make. What I love especially of this dish is the sauce, so much so that I end up scraping every last drop out of […]

Lamb and Leek Hotpot

Lamb & Leek Hotpot

The first time I came across a hotpot was when Marcus Wareing prepared it in the first Great British Menu series. Even though he took great care to research his subject and prepared it most lovingly I couldn’t help but turn up my nose at it. It’s as if the original cook thought it’s a […]
