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.


Carrot and Chickpea Curry

Indian food is well known for vegan and vegetarian fodder and this carrot and chickpea curry is super simple and packed with big flavours!

This carrot and chickpea curry is a proper corker of a dish. It was born of the result of a glut of carrots a few years ago. Seriously we grew tonnes of them, so many that we even tried to make carrot wine. Don’t do it! Seriously! This carrot curry, on the other hand, comes highly recommended.

Mushroom Ragu With Cheesy Polenta

This rich mushroom ragu recipe is the perfect vegetarian meal and is served on a wonderfully comforting cheesy Gruyere polenta.

My wife has been bending my ear for weeks to come up with a new dish to serve over polenta and this Mushroom Ragu is the sign of my capitulation. To be honest she even started hinting in the height of summer. She just lurves polenta!
