I had Conill amb prunes i pinyons – rabbit with prunes and pine nuts in a restaurant near a campsite I was staying at in Catalonia once. I loved it. Then some years later when my then wife and I moved to […]

Orange Chicken is the New Lemon

This makes a tasty alternative to lemon chicken. It’s cheap and easy but still worthy for a Saturday night in front of the log burner. It also makes comforting eating if your team happen to have lost in the afternoon.

Take some chicken pieces, thighs and/or drumsticks. Skin them and slash the thick parts of […]

Curry: Lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Whilst reviewing Google Analytics of my website and blog it is clearly obvious that when I post something on there or on social media and include the word ‘curry’ the stats go through the roof.

What is it that we love so much about curry, I wonder? I spent one month travelling around India earlier […]

Empire Chicken – Celebrating the NO vote

As the Scot’s voted NO to independence yesterday I decided to celebrate with two British favourites, roast chicken and curry. It’s a slant on a Jamie recipe.

Using a young chicken, Picantón in Spain or Poussin elsewhere, the idea is to marry the chicken with a curry. It is simple to do this by making […]

Lightly spiced chicken curry with mint and baked beans

Firstly, this isn’t a student’s recipe.

I actually picked up some chicken drumsticks today but forgot to grab some rosemary that grows in abundance here but not in my pots it doesn’t. And as I had already walked to the village twice today it was far too hot in wander of rosemary. So whilst sipping an […]

I’ve spent a lot of time in Scandinavia to which I add Finland but in fact it’s really part of the Nordic region not a true Scandinavian country and that’s why its airline, Finnair […]

Under Pressure: Brown Stock

I have recently acquired a pressure cooker and at just 30€ it was too good an opportunity not to give it a go. My Mum swears by hers and I can fondly recall her making red lentil soup – it is difficult to spoil food in a pressure cooker because if you could then […]
