For your inspiration…
The first time I ever made foccaccia (I know I hate me a little bit, too), I couldn't believe *how* much oil I needed to use. So, what better way to use up those one, two, three jars of leftover sun-dried tomato or sweet roasted pepper oil? Now this is no 'five...read more
This recipe is as '90s throwback as short puffa jackets, Body Shop Spice lipliner and velvet chokers. Well, if the Youth of 2018 say it's okay for them, who am I to argue? So, grab your Joe Bloggs jeans and your Vodka Reef my 90s friends, and let's talk sun-dried...read more
We all love those jars of sun-dried tomatoes and roasted peppers. Hey, I even sometimes make them (I know I'm fucking insufferable sometimes). What about all that oil though? Okay, it's probably not the *best* olive oil but so what? The tomatoes or peppers have been...read more
My ode to autumn pears As part of my "well if you like redcurrant jelly with roast lamb" and "how about your apple sauce with roast pork" series, may I present - roasting your pears underneath your pork belly joint? Cook a pork belly joint in the normal way that you...read more
So roasted pears with cheese and nuts isn't for everyone - fair enough! As I said, a younger me would not have touched it with a bargepole. What else to do with 2, 3, or 4 too soft pears? In The Fruit Testing Fruit Demolishing Toddler Years, my resident Fruit Bat...read more
Pears are a tricky beast. Buy a bag of 6, and how many do you really eat, every time? 3? 4? All?! GTAF. I make like Nigel Slater and put four in a bowl to ripen, give those round little bottoms a little squeeze a couple of times a day, until they are perfectly...read more
Flapjacks are the leftover hoarders friend. Clear out your nuts! Your dried fruit and even your old cereal! Now, some CRAZY people out there will tell you to put flour in your flapjacks. NEVER EVER EVER DO THIS. Those grim flapjacks that you get at dodgy train...read more
So if you can't snack on as many spiced pumpkin seeds as me and mine, then what's a food waste warrior to do? What else to do? I confess; I'm 37. I am as pasty white and English as a half baked eccles cake. Before 1999 I hadn't eaten hummus, olives, anchovies or...read more
So... I'm going to say something a little controversial ... I don't think that chucking some watery pumpkin flesh is the end of the world. Carving pumpkins aren't grown to taste good. In comparison: I buy a real Christmas tree and it gets chipped, and back into the...read more
I love cornbread, corn chips, corn crackers, corn fed chicken and sweetcorn. Big bowls of polenta (grits) all rich with corn, butter and cheese, topped with heaps of veg or ragu/bolognese. It's the warm flavour of corn that does it for me. So, for my final 'good...read more
