Thai Style Stir Fry Chicken with Cashew Nuts

October 28th, 2016|

I do love Thai food but whilst I do a pretty damn good job of sourcing some global ingredients, those from Thailand often leave me coming up empty. So this Thai style chicken stir fry is a compromise when it comes to ingredients but there is certainly no compromise in flavour. One of the ingredients I lament not being able to buy is lemongrass, I love the stuff [...]

Mac and Cheese Goes British

October 25th, 2016|

I am sure this recipe may get a little flak, but I will open this up with the statement, I have always had a problem with the idea of Mac and Cheese... You see I just don't get where it sits as a dish, it is too one dimensional as a main and is not really a natural bed fellow with other stuff to make it form what I [...]

Indian Chicken Kofta Masala

October 21st, 2016|

My love of Indian flavours is well documented here on Krumpli and these chicken kofta poached in a masala style sauce or 'gravy' is definitely a nod to the flavours I love so much. In reality it is meatballs and gravy, but meatballs and gravy that has had the flavour dial definitely turned up to 11, the meatballs themselves sing of fenugreek one of the real evocative flavours [...]

Soy & Honey Glazed Chicken

October 18th, 2016|

You know I love a good fakeaway right? Well this Soy & Honey Glazed Chicken dish is inspired by a fellow recipe writer who I have been following for a while, Jennifer over at, she writes about all sorts of bits and pieces but me being me am solely focused on the food. I am often fascinated how takeaways change around the world with US Chinese Takeaway [...]

Spicy Tuna Fishcake With Cucumber Salad

October 14th, 2016|

I love a good fishcake and for this tuna fishcake I went plumbing through the flavours of Thailand... The last mackerel fishcakes I did here were really popular and were a bit of a grown up take on the fishcakes I grew up with as a child. This tuna fishcake is very different indeed, they pack a mighty punch something that would have been unheard of in the [...]

Venison Stew With Champ

October 11th, 2016|

I'm back pushing the wild meat again today and this venison stew really is a wonderfully simple dish that tastes a million dollars. Just like my recent wild boar stew I am not aiming to convert people to using wild meats all the time, I'm just saying they are out there, they taste great and really they are not difficult to cook with at all. For us at [...]

Honey Roast Pork Loin with Chorizo & Red Pepper

October 7th, 2016|

I am loving having more time to spend in the kitchen and this Honey Roast Pork Loin with Chorizo and Red Pepper recipe is a celebration for that. I love to cook and have been writing a lot of really quick recipes of recent and the slow recipes I have been making have only been slow in the sense of cooking, preparation has been typically quick. I am returning [...]

Pomegranate Chicken Thighs with Israeli Cous Cous

October 4th, 2016|

This pomegranate chicken thigh recipe is a strange one for me, it is one I can definitely say I know where my inspiration came from, aside from my obvious, inspired by another blogger post that I do every now and then most of my dishes are a mish mash of inspiration. This the chicken thighs in the this book are an idea from a cook book I picked [...]

Provençal Soupe au Pistou

September 30th, 2016|

Despite the rather glorious French name Provençal Soupe au Pistou really is a simple and homely peasant dish that I love dearly, a combination of seasonal routes in a vegetable stock lightly flavoured with tomato and finished off with a big punch of pesto or the French equivalent Pistou mixed with some sun dried tomatoes. I am making this Soupe au Pistou dish in part because I am in [...]

Chole: Indian Chickpea Curry

September 27th, 2016|

I'm back hunting through the sites of my favourite food writers for my latest recipe and a fantastic Chole, a chickpea curry from my friend Whitney over at Whitbits Kitchen... You all know I am a sucker for Indian flavours, to me they are the most vibrant and magical flavours in world food. They are so big and bold yet subtle and beautiful all at the same time, [...]

Slow Cooker Wild Boar Stew with Mushrooms

September 23rd, 2016|

Something a little new from me, not new to me of course just to my blog... We get access to some wonderful game out here in the Hungarian countryside and this wild boar stew is one of my very favourite Autumn and Winter stews. I have been a little reluctant to post game or offal here as I know they are not exactly the most popular or even [...]

Beer Battered Fish Tacos

September 20th, 2016|

Here we go with another dish I have been working on for a while, fish tacos are something us Brits hear about on American television but rarely see on our menus but hot on the heels of my chicken fajitas it was one I wanted to master. I would love to name check every recipe I worked from and book I read but there are far too many [...]
