InstantPot Beef ‘Osso Bucco’ with Polenta

January 20th, 2017|

Yes I know Osso Bucco is traditionally made with Veal and that osso bucco is usually made with white wine, however even in Hungary where Veal is relatively easily available the shin of veal is nigh on impossible to find, so this recipe is a sideways glance at a traditional recipe but one that the InstantPot deals with beautifully and one myself and my wife really love. Whilst [...]

Braised Chicken with Chicory

January 17th, 2017|

I am the first to admit that many of my dishes are far from simple, but this chicken with chicory braised number really is incredibly simple and it is all cooked in one pot so next to no washing up, so a dish that makes my wife happy on flavour and on work. The flavour of chicory is amazing, I have a massive weakness for flavours that err [...]

InstantPot Beef Minestrone Soup

January 13th, 2017|

Regular readers will know I am rather fond of a bowl of soup and like many of my soup recipes this beef minestrone soup is one I cook in bulk for myself and my wife to munch on for lunch through out the week. It will last 4-5 days if refrigerated, although it rarely lasts that long. It was great fun working on this recipe in my new [...]

Persian Roasted Cauliflower Steak

January 10th, 2017|

Back at the start of Autumn I used or first Cabbage of the year to BBQ up a cabbage steak, well now my favourite winter vegetable is being harvested I had to make a roasted cauliflower steak, this really is hands down my favourite way to cook cauliflower. There is just something special about the variation in texture you get when cooking cauliflower like this with the slightly firmer [...]

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

January 3rd, 2017|

Beef and Broccoli stir fry is one of the most popular takeaways and as I have spent the downtime between Christmas writing a new eBook to thank those of you that sign up for my email list, I figured it was time to dust off my recipe for this family favourite. Now if you have already signed up for my email list don't feel left out, leave me [...]

Pureed Pumpkin Risotto with Walnuts

December 30th, 2016|

This pumpkin risotto recipe is the second exploring similar ingredient and flavour profiles that create different dishes, both hail from Italy, well kinda and both of them rely on pumpkin puree as their foundation. 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 [...]

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Roasted Chestnuts and Blue Cheese

December 27th, 2016|

Hey, hey, hey folks, so we have done it, Christmas day has gone and if you are anything like me you have gorged on meat for the last few days and have more of the same heading your way over New Year. Well my recipes over the Christmas lull are vegetarian and focus on pumpkin and more specifically pumpkin puree... I usually have a bowl of pumpkin puree [...]

Ho, ho, holy crap it appears to by Christmas, not sure how that happened but it kinda did and my latest recipe whilst great at any time of the year is a great option for a mid Christmas special meal that can be rustled up for as many as you like. It looks really rather special, it tastes amazing and is all done in less than an hour. This [...]

Towering Foolproof Yorkshire Pudding

December 20th, 2016|

I cannot believe you can buy frozen Yorkshire pudding, they join the likes of frozen baked potatoes and roasted potatoes foods most ridiculous products, I am not averse to taking the odd short cut but buying frozen yorkshire pudding to save the 90 it takes to mix together 4 ingredients is mental, and let's face it those 4 ingredients are not exactly exotic either. Sure these take 25 minutes [...]

Chicken Pathia: Sweet and Sour Indian Curry

December 16th, 2016|

There was a wee phase when I lived back in the UK many moons ago that a Chicken Pathia was the only thing I ordered from an Indian menu... Not because I didin't like or understand the other stuff but purely and simply it was my favourite thing on any menu. As with all phases they pass but a chicken pathia remains one of my favourite dishes, fabulously [...]

Cream of Celeriac Soup

December 13th, 2016|

Let's face it the humble celeriac is one hell of a fugly vegetable, but behind the lumps and bumps of a colour so nondescript it defies description lies, in my opinion, the tastiest of root vegetables. So when it comes to my cream of celeriac soup I don't mess around to much it is all about the nutty celery flavour of possibly the worlds ugliest vegetable. I've listed [...]
