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.


Saag Aloo With a Twist

Saag Aloo is a long standing favourite curry of mine, the move from spinach to chard adds a depth of iron rich earthy flavour to an already wonderful dish!

Saag aloo is an absolute favourite of mine however due to a spectacular failure of ‘saag’ or spinach crop I went with trading out spinach for swiss chard and I am so glad I did…  It has transformed one of my favourite dishes into something really magical, the swiss chard has added a an iron rich flavour that punches through the spices wonderfully.

Homemade Pasta Recipe with Duck Eggs

What could be better than having a simple homemade pasta recipe that you can break out anytime you want!

I think a good homemade pasta recipe is something that is often overlooked and is a real joy, naturally I don’t advocate making it every time you eat pasta but when you want to make a homemade ravioli or just have no pasta in the cupboard the chances that you have the ingredients for making pasta at home is pretty much guaranteed.
