Hello, Black Garlic! Black Garlic, Mushroom & Cream Penne Pasta

Hello, Black Garlic! Black Garlic, Mushroom & Cream Penne Pasta

I’ve been reading about black garlic for the last few years. I’ve even tried a product made with black garlic – my friend Dave made some striking black garlic cheese which I used in a delicious seasonal butternut squash and cheese bake. But until this week, I’d never actually tried the stuff as it comes, [Read More…]

Cooking With Codlo | The Space Saver Sous Vide

Cooking With Codlo | The Space Saver Sous Vide

Sous-vide is a wonderful cooking technique, but it’s not an ideal option for anyone tight on either budget or space. Our ‘prosumer’ water bath (the SousVide Supreme) is the size of a small microwave and has a list price on the wrong side of £370. Even disregarding the price angle, kitchens are already groaning under [Read More…]

3 Ingredient Smoothie | Banana, Matcha & Prune

3 Ingredient Smoothie | Banana, Matcha & Prune

Green smoothies are all the rage. But I’ve just not developed a taste for kale, spinach, broccoli or any other green vegetable in my smoothies and prefer to stick to my fruit concoctions. A banana is a great start to the day. In recent years, bananas have received some bad press because they do not [Read More…]

Memories of Luton, Lübeck, Marzipan and Niederegger + Marzipan Giveaway

Memories of Luton, Lübeck, Marzipan and Niederegger + Marzipan Giveaway

You can take the girl out of Luton… Smack in the middle of the eighties – which I still hold to be the best decade, musically and fashion-wise (though I admit to harbouring some bias on this) – I did a German Language Exchange Trip through my secondary school. Luton and Hamburg were an odd [Read More…]

In (& Out Of) My Kitchen | A Busy Month

In (& Out Of) My Kitchen | A Busy Month

I’ve been on Instagram for just over a year and I’ve quickly come to love it. It’s quite distinct from other social media platforms, though it also lends itself to some cross-sharing – I push selected instagrams across to twitter, facebook and to my Nibbles tumblr, which in turn feeds through to the Kavey Eats [Read More…]

Gouda Gracious Me! Top Quality Dutch Cheese + Reader Giveaway (Closed)

Gouda Gracious Me! Top Quality Dutch Cheese + Reader Giveaway (Closed)

Dutch cheese Gouda has a bit of an image problem in the UK, often dismissed as a somewhat boring cheese. This is no doubt because our opinions are based on the young mass-produced Gouda which has most commonly been available here in the UK in recent decades. But, like many cheese, the best Gouda is [Read More…]

Bloggers Scream for Diary Free Ice Cream | March BSFIC Roundup

Image from Shutterstock stock library This month’s theme for BSFIC was Dairy Free – either by use of a dairy substitute or skipping it completely. I hope you enjoy the delicious entries below!

Kavey’s Chorizo, Cod & Pea Fish Pie Recipe

Kavey’s Chorizo, Cod & Pea Fish Pie Recipe

Wary of degradation from a slightly longer than ideal stint in the freezer, I wondered what to make with our last portion of last year’s skrei (beautiful Norwegian cod from the Barents sea). Fish pie was on my mind, but I didn’t fancy the cod and boiled egg fish pie recipe we have made previously; [Read More…]

Umeshu Night at Chisou’s Sake Club

Umeshu Night at Chisou’s Sake Club

In the last few years I’ve discovered that I have a taste for sake. I’ve learned the basics about how it’s made and the different types available, but haven’t sampled enough to get a handle on my preferences. There’s a very distinctive taste that most sakes have in common, despite their many differences and it’s [Read More…]
