Gordon Ramsay’s Tandoori Halibut With Raita


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 […]

Gordon Ramsay’s Quiche With Leeks & Pancetta


If you thought that leeks were only good for soups then check out this recipe for Leek & Pancetta Quiche. It should change your mind pretty quickly! The recipe itself comes via Gordon Ramsay and the video below comes from his cooking-at-home TV series. He also shows you how to make shortcrust pastry with flour, butter and […]

Classic Deep Filled Bramely Apple Pie


There’s nothing better than a bowl of warm apple pie with either ice cream or custard. If you plan to make one this month, then head to your local market and get yourself some Bramleys. This traditional English variety can be dated back to Mary Ann Brailsford in 1809 when the first ‘Bramley’s Seedling’ tree grew […]

Rachel Khoo’s Roasted Rhubarb And Almond Pudding


While researching for today’s post, I realised that I really haven’t mentioned rhubarb all that much. Though not actually a true fruit, most of the time that is how we treat it and use it as such. As I’m sure you’re aware, rhubarb is often used in pies, tarts and particularly goes well in crumbles. Due to […]

Gordon Ramsay’s Ginger Beer Battered Fish And Mushy Peas


If you love battered fish then you’re going to love this recipe from Gordon Ramsay. There’s nothing quite so English as this. I remember childhood holidays down on the south coast of the UK. Walking along the beachfront on cold and rainy days. Somehow, eating battered fish and chips always made everything better. In this […]

Nigel Slater’s Coconut Chilli Chicken


I love to cook Asian inspired recipes, especially if there are nice and spicy! Not only do they have great flavours but quite often they’re simple and straightforward. You may have to spend some extra time preparing the ingredients but on the whole, nothing to complicated. A good example of how simple it can be […]

Gill Meller’s Recipe For Super Sausage Rolls


Traditional English sausage rolls are simply British bangers wrapped in pastry. Some people think hotdog sausages can be used but no, that’s plainly wrong. They are quite simple to make really, all you need is decent sausages and pastry. Though, have you ever wished they were bigger and packed with more flavour? I have found a great recipe […]

Gennaro Contaldo’s Fabulous Ricotta Ravioli


I remember having ravioli as a kid, it came in a tin and was ‘meat’ flavoured. To be honest, the filling could of been anything as they all tasted the same. Weather it was the tomato sauce it came in or the filling had lost it flavour, they were all rather bland. Thankfully we are all […]

Jamie Oliver’s Recipe For Spicy Chilli Sauce!


Yesterday, Jamie Oliver put out a new video recipe for chilli sauce. It obviously caught my attention as I love chillies and love making sauces with them. In my own sauces, I have used vinegar and brown sugar to get that sharp yet slightly sweet taste. Jamie did the same thing but where as I […]

Three Top Dishes From Rick Stein That Don’t Break Budgets


I still think Rick Stein is one of the best celebrity chefs on TV. He’s fairly laid back, full of stories and has some really great recipes. As a TV chef, he’s been around the world exploring the cuisines of many continents. He’s traveled around France, Spain and India. I particularly liked his adventures around […]
