Beef Ho Fun
This one’s another one of my childhood favourites and I’ve been craving it for weeks. After a long awaited trip to the Chinese supermarket I finally got my ingredients and was ready to cook away. Nothing beats dry ho fun cooked in a wok on a chinese stove. But who has got one of those at home and to be honest it’s still sooooo good cooked on a regular hob. It’s a super...
I know this isn’t much of a recipe, but how often have you come home late from work and thought: “I really can’t be bothered to cook a proper meal!” The only solution then seems to be to pick up the phone and call the local Indian or root in the freezer for some pepperoni pizza. You are also probably sick of shop bought jars of arrabbiata or microwave meals. Now...
Borscht and Mushroom Dumplings
In a buy-one-get-one free frenzy I recently ended up with eight bulbs of beetroot in my fridge and no idea what to do with them. Then I remembered that I always wanted to make Borscht and so my deep red cooking adventure commenced. This soup is something different, unbelievably satisfying, very healthy and simply delicious. I served it with home made mushroom dumplings, crusty bread and a...
Turkey and White Wine Bake
I don’t really know why turkey is so under-rated. The most common reason I hear is “it’s too dry”. But come on, if not properly cooked, that is true for any kind of meat. Remember the countless occasions you’ve had a chicken breast fillet resembling sawdust!! Turkey is the most flavoursome of the white meats, with a more rustic texture, super low in calories and...
Sweet Chilli & Prawn Soup Noodle
This is my ultimate, soul warming comfort food. My dad used to cook up the most amazing soup noodles ever; full of healthy veggies lovely homemade chicken broth and sticky rice noodles. These are some of my fondest childhood memories, slurping on hot soup on a cold miserable winter evening. So here’s my take on it; I went for a sweet and sour prawn option but you can use whatever...
Oven Roast Tomatoes & Scrambled Eggs on Toast
Scrambled eggs, sweet oven roast tomatoes and hot buttery toast are a match made in heaven. The perfect weekend brunch, this is so easy to make and is a great alternative to a heavy full English. Enjoy this, watching breakfast TV with a steaming cup of tea. ;) SERVES 2 PREPARATION 5 mins COOK 30 mins ………………………………………. INGREDIENTS 4 Large Eggs 1 tbsp Sour Cream 300g Cherry Tomatoes (I used a...
Perfectly Pink Rumpsteak with Caramelised Roast...
If you asked me what my favourite dish of all time is, I would probably say a perfectly pink Ribeye Steak and Fries. Getting this right myself is an entirely different story. Every celebrity chef has got one of those impossible wisdoms up their sleeve that us normal people just can’t get right. The other day I finally decided to use the ‘Cook at 80˚C method’ - and it worked a...
