Tonkatsu Sauce

Chicken Lazone

Lemon and Prawn Risotto

Prawns have to be one of the most versatile ingredients you can use in the kitchen. They work well in pretty much every savoury dish I can think of. They’re great served cold in...

Hunter’s Chicken

I have to admit that “Hunter’s Chicken” was always something that passed me by on a restaurant or pub menu. Part of this would have come from confusion over the name… I grew up...

Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue Sauce can be such a hit or miss condiment in my opinion. It’s easy to pick up at the supermarket and there’s a lot of choice out there. Almost too much choice and...

Asian Salmon Kebabs

I think everyone has a fairly generic ‘Asian-style’ marinade tucked away somewhere in their repertoire. It’s no surprise as the base mixture of ginger, garlic and soy sauce is both versatile enough to pair...

Creamy Chicken & Garlic Pasta

After another of my lengthy soujourns researching recipes online I came across a dish I don’t think I’ve ever taken much notice of before: Pasta Alfredo. Traditionally this is made by tossing cooked fettuccine...

Lemon Pepper Chicken Kebabs

In my opinion barbecues should be about so much more than burgers and sausages… It’s not that I don’t like them but when I have friends or family around to eat I want to...

Blondies

I can’t remember when I had my first Blondies but I’m pretty sure that, like most people, I was somewhat of a skeptic. I mean, why would you make a brownie without the most...

Basil and Red Pepper Beef

This is very much inspired by Thai Basil Beef (a.k.a. Pad Gra Prow) but is not something that I would ever want to claim as being even remotely authentic for many reasons. First, and...

Baked Coconut Prawns

I’m a creature of habit. Whenever I travel to the USA if there’s a Bubba Gump restaurant nearby there’s a very strong chance I’ll end up in it at some point. I’m sure that...
