Mum’s Birthday Cake

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

I’ve had a strange kind of “Christmassy” feeling this past few days.  I’m going to put that down to me sitting on my arse drinking wine, wet and cold weather outside (leading to floods all over the UK, again), and the smell of baking filling the house.  Oh, the joys!

The baking this time around is [...]

Back Ribs in a Sweet Chilli Sauce

Monday, May 19th, 2008

I have no idea why but the past few weeks have turned me into a pork ribs addict. There’s nothing quite like eating soft, melt in the mouth pork straight from the bone; roll on barbecue season!

Cock Soup

Saturday, May 10th, 2008

I was in Tesco last week when I saw this packet of “Cock Soup” and just couldn’t resist. Yes, its immature, but I’m a guy and that means I laugh at rude words. Sorry about that!
So who fancies some Cock Soup? Nourishing, as it says on the packet; it must be from [...]

In The Bag: May

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

Asparagus, eggs and parmesan; a classic combination, but what would you make with that little lot?
If you think you could come up with something original, we’d love to hear about it.
We’re running a seasonal food blogging event lasting right through to the end of May; all you have to do is create a recipe using [...]

Haggis, Neeps and Tatties

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Haggis is one of those things you either love or you hate. And I’m betting if you hate it, you’ve never really tried it at all, have you? If not, this bite size version is great for winning over haggis virgins just like you.

Here’s something else. When the Scots say “neeps” what [...]

Poached Fillet of Beef on a Cauliflower Cheese Puree

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Poaching is a great way of cooking meat but for some reason not many people think of doing it. Perhaps it’s because they think that we’re boiling all of the flavour away; nothing could be further from the truth!
This recipe is a variation on one I saw on TV a year or so ago [...]

Pork Chop on Mashed Celeriac

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

This is one of those quick and easy dishes that still tastes delicious. Celeriac can sometimes have a quite bland taste when mashed but the secret weapon here is lemon juice. It might sound odd but it really brings out that great earthy taste.

The Sunday Roast

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

I’m a big fan of the traditional Sunday Roast. It doesn’t matter what kind of meat you have, there’s nothing more comforting than having the family sitting around the table sharing the same delicious meal. Sadly though, this practise seems to be disappearing throughout the Western world.
What does it say about our society [...]

Fish and Chips

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

This is a post dedicated to rainy days sitting in shabby looking cafes on the seafront. The smell of vinegar permeates the air and steam rises from mugs of tea; some may argue, but this is the ultimate in comfort food.
