Lemon and rhubarb posset with pistachio crumb

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, so I’ve never really been a pudding person. My partner, however, most definitely is…so over the past few years, I’ve not only sampled a few delicious puds I’ve never tried…but I’ve also started making them. And I’m delighted to find that I can actually make a rather good […] Read More

Spanish hake and chorizo stew

Since the folk at The Fresh Fish Shop set up a stall every Thursday at Falmer’s Park Farm Shop, we’ve been eating a lot more fish. The quality of their fish is second to none – I’d go as far as to say, it’s the best and freshest fish I’ve managed to find in the […] Read More

Kentucky fried chicken, fries, coleslaw and beans

My deep fat fryer is not something that I tend to have to hand in the kitchen – I’d rather have the room for prepping food and of course my wonderful rotisserie machine. So I store it away and get it out when I’m up for doing a series of meals requiring some kind of […] Read More

Like Spaghetti Bolognese, for me, this is right up there in terms of great comfort food. With the addition of typical Greek spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice), this takes its Italian counterpart, lasagne, to another level.

With the weather feeling particularly wintery of late, I decided it was time for some wholesome, whole cooked hearty food. Where better to turn than a good old fashioned rabbit stew. As always, Canham & Sons in Hove didn’t […] Read More

We’ve been on a bit of a health kick since the new year – limiting red meat preferring to go with fish and veggie options as much as possible. We’ve also been avoiding too many carbs and have virtually completely cut out potatoes (for now). So I’ve been going a bit crazy with my purees…trying […] Read More

In my opinion, Spaghetti Bolognese is right up there as one of the best comfort foods. And, in my opinion, it’s one of the easiest dishes to get right. But so often, in particular in restaurants and cafés, it’s served up as a bit of a tasteless slosh of bland mince, token tomatoes and way […] Read More

Greek Salad

With a trip to Athens next week…with a half Greek partner who craves food memories of Greece…I’ve decided to brush up on my Greek cooking skills. So where else to start than a good old Greek Salad. I love Greek Salad and found myself indulging every morning for breakfast when I spent a week in […] Read More
