It’s curry time! Curry puff puffs, curry filo puffs and curry cups

Curry in a hurry If there’s one type of food that the Brits have truly taken to their hearts and made their own, it is the curry. It’s Britain’s favourite take-away and I daresay the number of Indian restaurants could rival the number of pubs in the UK quite easily. Anyone know if that might … Continue reading

Meals for many: Lemongrass and curry-flavoured chicken on roasted fennel, onions, shallots and garlic

Friend-friendly suppers If there’s one thing I love more than spending my weekends cooking, it’s spending my weekends cooking for friends. I get an obscene, almost indecent, amount of pleasure from it, and nothing pleases me more than having my closest friends around the table laughing, talking, drinking and eating together. Naturally, I use them … Continue reading

9 Jan Update: I’ve had to update the title after my mother-in-law informed me that she first had devilled curried eggs back in the 1960’s!

You know winter’s on its way when the soups come out to play: curried squash and red lentil soup

An Autumn/Winter Warmer I originally planned to make this with roasted pumpkin to present to my father-in-law for his Fright Night Halloween event in Ferndown this month but I have to admit that I’m not the world’s biggest fan of pumpkin. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I’d much rather choose … Continue reading

Our edible garden

Our edible garden I feel horribly, horribly guilty. I have thoroughly neglected our garden this year. Starting this blog has only made it worse as I’ve realised I’ve barely set foot in my backyard in the last three weeks. There’s still a few more weeks of decent weather left (she says hopefully), and everything still … Continue reading
