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.

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

Pea & broad bean houmous with goat’s cheese, a great combination for summer


I love creating stuff for my kitchen. I already have 5 bottles of flavoured oil. Creating your own mayonnaise might be a bit more difficult but creating a lovely summer topping to bread is easy. One of the easiest is houmous, a spread or dip originating from the Middle East and Arabic countries. Normally houmous is made from chickpeas (houmous […]

Keith Floyd Week: Duck and green peas


We start this week of ‘Keith Floyd cooking’ with him standing in a middle of a field, in Norfolk. With his smart looking yellow waistcoat, he demonstrates how to cook Duck with green peas.
