About Me!

My name is Brian and back in 2008 myself and my wife quit our ‘real’ jobs in the UK, I picked up a spade and a camera and we moved to a small village in Rural Hungary to grow food, brew wine and take pictures. To cut a long story short, we wanted to buy  a summer house but went to a music festival, got drunk, bought a house, got married, quit our jobs and moved countries, all in 8 months… And we’re still here and have no intention of being anywhere else!

Cooking Aint Hard

Cooking is really simple, it is a series of techniques which can all be learned and then a set of flavours and textures that work well together, then you can play those ideas together in the same way a musician takes chords and notes to form riffs. Food is rarely innovative or new, but reworkings of things that make our bellies and tastebuds go, Mmmmmmm.

About My Food

I’m definitely not one of them “health & lifestyle” bloggers, you will be actively encouraged to use butter if butter is the best thing for the recipe in these parts. You could say that I am a bit of a ‘Magpie’ when it comes to food, my tastes are incredibly eclectic and range from the sheer indulgent through to simple and healthy. You will get no gimmicks, no trends, no dietary advice and no life advice here, just good food and the occasional story or two.

Dopiaza is Persian for two onions apparently and this beef dopiaza fakeaway is an ode to my love of British Indian Curry Houses with a little help from the InstantPot.
Soy & Honey Glazed Chicken
Skillet Goats Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells
Beef Osso Bucco is a more accessible version of the Italian Veal Classic, cooked in the InstantPot means it is also a whole bunch quicker but every bit as tasty.
