Supper Club #1

I’ve set myself a challenge to host a supper club by the end of the Year. In true Bristol fashion, the preparation has been well underway with a soft launch supper club each month to friends and family. Continue reading


Sweetcorn & Courgette Fritters with Maple Caramelised Red Onion

Recipe of the Week

Seasonal Produce: Sweetcorn


I set myself a challenge of making sweetcorn the star of the show in every evening meal I cooked last week – which encouraged me to cook meals I’ve never done before. Who would have thought that this little vegetable could be quite so versatile!

I’ll put up a few recipes over the next couple weeks – and I’ll be picking another vegetable in October to be the main event for a week – so watch this space…

Recipe of the Week: Homemade Baba Ganoush

Recipe of the Week

Seasonal Produce: Aubergine


This Middle-Eastern dip lends itself beautifully as an accompaniment to flat bread/tortillas whilst catching up with friends over a glass of wine or even as a great addition to lamb or chicken kebabs – homemade of course!

It’s become a staple in our house at the moment with the humble humous taking a backseat. I originally started making baba ganoush on my gas cooker – which actually worked very well – just as long as you prepare your workstation in advance! The arrival of the Big Green Egg has made this process much easier simply nestling the aubergines amongst the hot coals at the end of a BBQ.

Let’s Not Forget the BBQ Salads..

Recipe of the Week

Seasonal Produce: Buuuuut it’s BBQ season!!!

Processed with MOLDIV

Well what a beautiful weekend that was! With weather like that – the only food option is BBQ, more BBQs and even more BBQs. The key to a good BBQ for me is the salad selection. It goes without saying that there needs to be chicken, steak and halloumi – but there’s nothing more depressing than rocking up to a BBQ and there’s only a bowl of lettuce leaves.

These salads can make or break an English BBQ – and we need to give them the true respect they deserve!

Here are just a few of my favourites – you never know, if this weather holds out – some more BBQ recipes will follow. But knowing how the weather works here – let’s not bet on it…..

Cards on the table, eh-erm, seasonal produce went slightly out of the window this week – I couldn’t resist!

Wild Garlic Chicken Kiev

Recipe of the Week

Seasonal Produce: Wild Garlic

I can’t quite get enough of wild garlic at the moment, and what better than a healthier take on an all time classic – the chicken kiev! This is a really easy and quick recipe that’s perfect for enjoying after a long day at work. Serve just with salad if you’re being good, or rustle up some sweet potato fries if you want to push the boat out.
