The inspiration for my Spanish Pork Chop with Cauliflower dish comes unusually from a new cookery book I got my hands on, I have loads of cook books and rarely look at them and to be honest rarely by them... However people know I love food so cookery books have become an easy to buy gift for folk to buy me, it really is not the way I cook [...]
I love Stuffed Pasta Shells and this just happens to be my favourite way to stuff them, goats cheese certainly seems to be a bit of a Marmite type of food with many claiming to love or hate it with very little in between...
They say idle hands make light work and this cauliflower cannelloni is definitely a product of my idleness, oh yes and my love of cauliflower... This recipe all started off with an experiment with a simple cauliflower puree, fooling around with steamed, roasted and boiled cauliflower which then lead to a ravioli and finally to this heartwarming cauliflower cannelloni.
This Skillet Pork Chop with Cabbage, Pear and Walnuts recipe just screams autumn in these parts, both pears and walnuts are pretty much ubiquitous in these parts and despite not having either a walnut tree or a pear tree in our garden I have not paid a single brass farthing for either of these ingredients since we moved here.
Mulligatawny Soup is my go to cold remedy, that and a hot toddy of course, this delightful Angle Indian soup is hot, hotter than the surface of the sun and almost all of that spice heat comes from the majesty of black pepper.
This Tuscan white bean and cabbage soup is a twist on zuppa Toscana, however my version turned much lighter and vegetarian years ago, gone is the bacon, sausage and double cream... Gone is the bacon, I can not believe I am saying that.
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.
