Slow-Cooked Venison Ragù

You may have noticed that I’ve got a bit of comfort food obsession of late, but then again you can hardly blame me at this time of the year. We may have had a...

Lemongrass Chicken

This dish has had quite a long gestation in my repertoire… It all started many years ago – and I mean many years – when I was out for dinner with friends. As is so...

Lamb Curry

You may have noticed that this is the first Lamb recipe in my collection, and what a place to start! This slow-cooked curry uses neck fillet, braised in a lightly-spiced tomato sauce for well...

Spinach, Chard and Courgette Lasagne

I often like to plan a week’s meals in advance. I’ll sit down with my recipe books, websites and a blank sheet of paper and come up with some ideas of what I’d like...

Chilli Pork Ramen

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that Michael and spicy food do not go well together. As far as I can tell it’s not a flavour issue, it’s a comfort one. Spicy food causes him...

Chicken, Pancetta & Leek Filo Pie

I admit that there’s not much original about combining chicken, bacon (or in this case pancetta) and mushroom in a pie filling. However, I do think that this succeeds where so many others can...

Breakfast Pizza

It turns out that I am a total sucker for online advertising. I kept seeing an advert in my Instagram feed for a low-calorie, gluten free pizza dough that was only 39kcal per serving....

No-Cook Pizza Sauce

For me the tomato sauce on a pizza can be a make or break ingredient. No matter how much effort you go into with the toppings it can all be for nought if you...

Extra Crispy Fish Pie

As far as I’m concerned you’d have to go a long way to find a dinner more comforting than a homemade Fish Pie. I suspect it’s the combination of a cheesy sauce, mashed potatoes...

Crispy Marshmallow Bites

Happy Halloween!  Even though I’m not a huge fan of Halloween a lot of my friends really get into the spirit of the season and enthusiasm can be infectious. Though rather than dressing up...

Oven-Baked Pork Belly Tonkatsu

The Japanese have pretty much perfected the art of making food extra delicious by covering it in a crispy coating. I’ve already shared my Chicken Katsu Curry recipe with you this week and hot...

Tonkatsu Sauce

Although I pretty much only make Tonkatsu Sauce to go with Tonkatsu Pork I suspect it would work well wherever you use Barbecue Sauce. Much like my regular Barbecue Sauce this starts with a ketchup...

Chicken Katsu Curry

Every time we go to Wagamama Michael will order the same thing: Chicken Katsu Curry. I can’t say I blame him as it’s a cracking dish and always guaranteed to taste good. The main reason...

Chicken Lazone

Ok, ok – so it seems that nobody has ever heard of Chicken Lazone. Admittedly nor had I until a couple of years ago when I found the recipe online whilst looking for a...

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...

Falafel

When I was at University in the late 90s it felt like you could get Falafel pretty much everywhere you went. Though on reflection that may have been because they’re cheap. easy to make...

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...
