Traditional Cornish Pasty

A traditional Cornish Pasty dates back to the 13th century and is wrapped in all sorts of rumour and mystery, this version is as traditional as it gets and it is unbelievable how much flavour you can get from such simple ingredients. #pasties #handpies

A traditional Cornish Pasty dates back to the 13th century and unsurprisingly is the source of much discussion, nay argument. However to call this dish famous in the UK would be an understatement, any food stuff name checked in classics like the Robin Hood Chronicles, the Canterbury Tales and no less than three works of Shakespeare is no shrinking violet.

Beef Stroganoff

A rare Russian classic and truly global recipe, beef stroganoff is a homely warming rich dish that is remarkably quick and simple!

This beef stroganoff has been a long time in coming, I posted my mushroom stroganoff recipe almost 2 years ago and stated back then that I would choose mushroom stroganoff over beef any day of the week. That thought kinda irked me a little, shrooms are great but c’mon it’s beef it’s gotta be good right? Anyway I went back to the drawing board, I mean all the way back to recipes from the 1800’s.

Mutton or Lamb Hotpot

What's a hotpot? A gloriously British dish of a hearty stew cooked under a scalloped potato top, this mutton or Lamb hotpot is proper old school and rah!

At the heart of a good hotpot is a great stew and at the heart of a great stew is the right type of meat, the name kinda gives it away with this mutton hotpot, I have used mutton… Essentially old lamb, over a couple of years old!
