Courgette Chips and Mayonnaise

August 26, 2013

Damn it. I have just realised that these are accidentally kind of healthy, so dip in plenty of mayonnaise.

Just Salad

Make sure your salad is good enough to stand on it's own merits. Sometimes it's all about the sides.

Ever fancied making cheese? I did...and here it is. More to follow soon, I'm sure.

Black Rice Salad

December 17, 2012

One last reasonably healthy recipe from me before the gluttony of Christmas descends. Ed created this black rice salad one lunch time which is greater than the sum of its parts.

Courgette and Chorizo Tarts

Stripy Beets and Feta

August 17, 2012

15

I love beetroot. Back in the 70's when on holiday I used to fill my plate with purple vinegary slices because it was something I recognised. These candy striped Choggia roots take my beety love to a whole new level.

Don't you think it's so much easier to eat salads when the sun finally comes out? This isn’t just ANY salad though, it’s a ‘Claire and Ed’s Spicy Satay Noodle Salad’

All Day Pork

Some things are worth getting up early for. The first one is a cup of tea and the second is the promise of a pulled pork pitta. This pork is dry rubbed with coffee and cooked all day. You're welcome.

Winter Soufflé Omelette

February 22, 2012

21

It was a dreary wet morning in Derbyshire, so I set about the housework. The rainy skies and domestic chores left me feeling that I needed a tasty lunch to perk me up. I scoured the kitchen and garden for inspiration: Witch hazel and snowdrops offered the only glimpse of colour in the garden. The […]

The Pheasant and The Potato

February 17, 2012

17

One of our generous neighbours offered us a pheasant, and having never cooked a pheasant before I jumped at the chance. Although he was a beautiful thing, carrying him back home felt a little odd. His soft feathers and firm weightiness made it feel like I was carrying a pet, rather than something for dinner. […]

An interview with a man about how he makes his soup.

Pickle Post

So we’ve ridden the chutney wave and come out the other side. This year we are on a chutney break as we still have some of our own creations left and a few from family members and friends to work through. But late in the season we ended up with a couple of mini gluts. […]

Tortilla de Patatas

June 3, 2011

10

Just a little ‘Something for the Weekend’. In the days before children, Ed used to often make something like this on a Friday night after work. Something to tide us over until dinner. The truth of the matter was, once we’d had this and a few beers, we rarely got round to bothering with dinner. […]

Spring Promises and Hollandaise

May 11, 2011

11

When spring comes around I promise that we will change our wintery, comfort eating ways. We will eat fresh produce, lots of vegetables and salads and cut down on the carbs. With this in mind I bought some barnsley chops of spring lamb and the first British asparagus of the season. I also replenished our […]
