Dinner For Two Anyone?

Cooking for two requires a different mindset than cooking for larger numbers. Roasting whole joints of meat or cooking up big side dishes to share are 'off the menu'. As a result of this often much more planning is required, that is not a bad thing, I do it all for you.

Don't worry, if you are cooking for more going in the other direction and scaling up recipes is much easier!

My recipes are all designed with cooking for two in mind. Even those with larger serving sizes will be great for either freezing or repurposing as leftovers.

Butternut Squash Pasta

My version of butternut squash pasta rejects a blended sauce in favour of beautiful chunks of squash cooked in wine with rosemary and chili.

Often butternut squash pasta recipes take the form of a blended sauce, this recipe is a little different. It features cubes of butternut squash cooked in bacon and chili… I know right! Bacon and chili! It also has a little white wine and some rosemary.

Indian Lamb Burgers

This Lamb Burger is inspired by Indian flavours, light bright and zingy with hints of fenugreek, cumin and turmeric and elements of a Kachumber salad.

This lamb burger recipe is very much influenced by my love of Indian flavours. That does not mean that it should be confused with a ‘curry burger’! The flavours here are the same sweet and sour flavours often associated with burgers.

Calves Liver With Jerusalem Artichokes

I love liver, this calves liver recipe is an 'ensemble recipe' all wrapped around very simply pan fried calves liver cooked nice and pink.

I love cooking and eating with offal. This calves liver recipe is the latest foray into the often maligned world of cooking with ‘variety meats’. Calves liver is often seen as the Rolls Royce of the offal world by many.
