Mustard Greens

Tags:

I love green veggies. Spinach, kale, broccoli, you name it, I love it! This recipe uses spinach, watercress and rocket but you can add any greens you fancy. Toasted pine nuts stirred through after wilting is a great addition too.

Coffee Nutty Pecan Cake

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Having a slice of cake with a coffee is a real treat and almost a must in my home. This coffee and pecan cake covers both bases, and you can add a splash of Marsala or Tia Maria if you fancy making it boozy.

Green Olive, Cheddar & Chilli Rolls

Tags: , , , , ,

Baking bread is easier than you think and there’s nothing better than freshly baked bread you’ve made with your own loving hands. This is a tear and share loaf full of green olives, sharp cheddar, and a hint of chilli. It’s a great way to start a meal or have with a warming soup.

Salt Baked Bream with Coriander & Lemon

Tags: , , , ,

Baking fish in salt is one of the surest way to keep it soft and succulent. I like to use rock salt with a little coriander seed and lemon to create my crust. And don’t be shocked by the amount of salt you need – it’s purely for the crust and you won’t eat any of it.

Souped Up Chicken

Tags: ,

The name of this dish doesn’t do it justice (namely because I struggled to come up with something suitable) but just think of it as the perfect comfort food which doubles up as a wonderful dish when entertaining.

Chickpea Chorizo Fritters

Tags: ,

These perfect little snacks are packed full of flavour. The smokiness of the chorizo works wonderfully with the toasted spices.

Chilli Cheese Sablés

Tags: , , ,

Sablé is the French word for ‘sand’ and is a biscuit – almost like shortbread. It has the most delicious, crumbly texture which should only be baked until light golden brown.

Whole Stuffed Fish

Tags: , ,

This is an ancient recipe of stuffing a whole fish with spices, sealing it in an earthenware pot, burying it in the ground and covering it with natural heat fermenters. I have had to change the recipe slightly to replicate this style of cooking for the modern day. Perfect for a dinner party. You can click here to see how to make it.

Best Lamb Curry Ever!

Tags: ,

Every time I make this curry I always get asked what I added and how I made it, so I thought I would write it down and add it to my recipe collection. This is a great recipe to really turn up the heat, or if you prefer to keep it milder then add a little coconut cream at the end.

Orange & Cinnamon Brioche

Tags: , , ,

Brioche is an enriched sweet bread often eaten at special occasions in France. This is a recipe for a 1kg loaf but you can make these into small individual brioches if you like, and add any sweet spices such as nutmeg, cloves and even saffron.
