Quick & Easy Yuzu Ice Cream

Quick & Easy Yuzu Ice Cream

Yuzu makes a fabulous sorbet, one I am seldom able to resist if I see it on a menu. But when I was given a jar of Korean Yuzu Tea to try by Sous Chef I decided to use it in a simple yuzu ice cream instead. Yuzu is an Asian citrus that originated in [Read More...]

Home Made White Cherry Rum Liqueur

Home Made White Cherry Rum Liqueur

White cherries aren’t really white; they’re gorgeous pale yellow blushed with rose.    Fortunately for me, the small fruit stall just outside the office where I currently work has had them on sale recently and I’ve purchased so many the stall holder probably assumes I’m a weird cherry addict. When I told him this bag [Read More...]

Recipe Video | Chorizo, Spinach, Onion & Potato Frittata

An affordable recipe perfect for alfresco dining, making use of British ingredients. That’s what I was asked to create when vouchercodes.co.uk invited me to film another recipe video with them.

I Eat My Books, Do You Eat Yours?

Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Jacket Potatoes

Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Jacket Potatoes

We’ve had our slow cooker for years but until recently, we didn’t use it as much as we could have. We use it to make an overnight chicken stock after every roast chicken dinner: Strip the carcass of meat, throw it into the slow cooker with some water, put it on low and strain in [Read More...]

Matsuri St James | A Venerable London Teppanyaki Restaurant

Matsuri St James | A Venerable London Teppanyaki Restaurant

Back in the late 1990s, a friend took me to Matsuri St James. It was a fair bit pricier than the restaurants we more commonly visited, but he’d heard good things about the food and was keen to try. Most of the clientele were Japanese and virtually all of them were men, probably a factor [Read More...]

June BSFIC: Delicious Fruit

June BSFIC: Delicious Fruit

Summer is here and with it a bounty of delicious fruit. Not only is home-grown fruit fantastic at this time of year, imported tropical delights are also available. Although I’m still in mourning over the ban on import of fresh alphonso mangoes, I shall certainly make the most of the abundance all around me. And [Read More...]
