A rare sweet treat for me today and this delicious ice cream cookie sandwich is inspired by my friend Meaghan over at Cook Craft Love, I saw a picture of them over on her site and thought, “that would go down a real treat”.
About Brian JonesOn April the 30th 2008 I got on an plane with a one way ticket to Budapest with wide eyed notions of growing my own food and brewing my own wine… As the years passed by photography became much more than a medium to document my new life and share it with my friends and family, photography became a passion that sits wonderfully alongside my love of food!
I love this time of year and I love this recipe, this Smoked Mackerel Salad with Apple and Bacon is nothing more than a few good things that really work well together that have been given a little care and attention to make them sing.
Time for the folk who don’t like goats cheese to run away again as this simple Pesto Spaghetti with Peas and Goats Cheese goes in for it in a big way.
Whether you call this tomato consomme, tomato broth, tomato brodo, tomato bouillon it is and will be the most intensely tomato flavoured stuff you have ever tried, obviously I skipped calling it tomato stock as it is not ‘cooked with tomato bones’ so it can’t be a stock
In many ways this food very much reminds me of the sort of food we ate growing up, roasted meat and 2 or 3 veg, that was very much what I knew as food as a child, although it was more likely to be belly draft rather than roasted pork loin.
There has to be a million variations on chicken noodle soup and when I am stumped on what to cook and need something in a hurry then one of my many recipes is usually what I turn to.
Duck makes a fairly regular appearance in these pages and this Shredded Teriyaki Duck Donburi utilises slow cooked legs, much like my duck burger as the star of a rice bowl dish from Japan...
One thing I pride myself on as a cook is my diversity, but if I am to define myself by the food I am most happy with and proud of then it would be something like this Apricot Pork Loin with Feta and Pickled Kohlrabi recipe.
