Look at me getting all fancy, this Ham Hock Salad may look incredibly impressive but it really is very achievable in your own home and the kicker is that it costs very little to make and tastes like a million dollars!
Ramen definitely has a bit of a bad rep but it is certainly not nasty throw away food, love the stuff and this spicy BBQ pork ramen is definitely one of my favourites.
This asparagus soup recipe really does call for something much more sedate and relaxed, it is warm and light and soothing and just well, very 'zen'. In fact so zen that it comes with a Japanese cherry blossom influence too.
Looking back at last winter I think I am definitely ready to say that Persian and North African flavours have been my 'new black' for the period and this za'atar chicken leg dish with cous cous is yet another riff on that idea.

I just had to kick of this years BBQ fun with these BBQ duck kebabs, simple classical flavours that work really well together in a recipe that has a little Asian leaning but perfect for early summer and late spring.
Getting back into the garden and working our 2.5 acres means my body still yearns hearty fare and that is where this Cheesy Skillet Baked Gnocchi recipe comes from.
It is hard to believe that this dish is Japanese, in fact Tonkatsu has definite European leanings and lets face it, it is a schnitzel in all but name, but a schnitzel with the glorious flavours of Japan.
Don't you just love the French language, everything always sounds so effortlessly cool and sexy, however petits pois a la Francaise means nothing more sexy that French peas...
