In To Noodle Recipes? Then You’ll Love Beef & Broccoli!


It seems I’ve become hooked on chinese noodle recipes. I love the fact that you can have a lovely bowl of spicy noodles with or without meat in no time at all. One ingredient I’m really into is broccoli, just seems to go well with whatever else you use, like pork or fish. Even without meat, […]

3 Easy Hummus Recipes From Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall


With summer not far away, I’ve been checking out various hummus recipes. It’s really not that difficult to make and can be a lovely addition to a salad. Especially if you include some flat bread. You can turn an everyday lunch in to something much more interesting. There are many varying hummus recipes and not all of […]

Gennaro Contaldo’s Hearty Minestrone Soup


The weather has fooled us again with a chilly spell but a good hearty minestrone soup will see us through it. There’s nothing better than a bowl full of lovely vegetables. It’s the kind of soup that while cooking, fills the room with a smell that makes you hungry. Would you say no to a big […]

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 […]

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 […]
