About the author: Bob Toovey
I am Bob Toovey and I have been blogging for quite some time. I currently write for three of my own sites and help friends and clients get a better grip with Internet marketing. I have a big interest in food, not just because it keeps me alive but as a way of relaxing after staring at screens all day.
My local market where I live, Bergerac France, is where I do most of my vegetable shopping. Great regional products that are fresh each market day - Wednesdays and Saturdays. Most of the time at better prices than the supermarkets and better quality.
My local French market is full of fruit and veg stalls selling asparagus. Big bundles of green spears fresh from the farmers and just waiting for you to do something wonderful with them. The one thing most people don’t realise about asparagus is that it’s ridiculously easyto cook something amazing with it. You really don’t need […]

I love packet noodles, quick to make and very easy to embellish. I often stir fry ginger, chillies and garlic then add the soften packet noodles. For that extra flavour, a big splash of soy sauce. Great for lunch but if you fancy noodles for dinner then you can add carrot, sweet corn and even […]
There’s nothing better than fresh peas, frozen or straight from your garden. The question is, what are you going to do with them? The standard answer is, pea and ham soup. However, with some imagination you can do a lot more. How about a risotto that’s not really a risotto? Especially when it takes half […]
How good are you at cooking perfect rice? Does it come out right time after time? Chef Jet Tila (whose full name is actually Jet Tilakamonkul) knows how to cook rice, he is chef of two US restaurants and has appeared on many TV programs – like Iron Chef America. So he should know what he’s […]
Cabbage, as a kid I hated it but over the years I’ve started to like it more and more. Perhaps it’s because I’m looking for great ideas to share with you that I get to see some rather creative recipes. When I grew up, cabbage was boiled until flavourless and was part of the ‘meat and two […]
It’s Friday so let’s talk about fish, and in particular spicy Tandoori halibut. The last fish recipe I mentioned was Gordon Ramsay’s Ginger Beer Battered Fish And Mushy Peas, which is still proving to be very popular. Well, we’re back with Gordon and this time looking at his recipe for Tandoori Halibut with Raita. Of course, the […]
