  • Carne asada nachos

    Carne asada nachos

    Carne asada nachos isn’t the recipe I was expecting to post at this time of year, but here we are. Veganuary, as you may know or have heard of, has no doubt settled under my skin. My sub-conscious urges me to eat salad after a month of gorging myself (see last month’s confessions of a […]

  • The best French recipes: Tartiflette

    The best French recipes: Tartiflette

    I’ve eaten an eye-watering amount of processed meat recently. They say a diet of processed meat is bad for you, but when push comes to shove, I bet whoever ‘they’ are would submit to that meat coma with the rest of us! I emerged from this pork-induced fog after eating four-days’ worth of rillettes, saucisson, […]

  • Milk-roasted chicken with garlic & lemon

    Milk-roasted chicken with garlic & lemon

    I don’t often use the word ‘mouthgasm’ to describe an incredible eating experience, but when I snaffled a wing of this milk-roasted chicken, its skin crisp and golden, interestingly ‘mouthgasm’ was the first word which popped into my mind, quickly followed by the experience itself. Describing a mouthgasm is somewhat obscene, so bear with me […]

  • How to make gyozas

    How to make gyozas

    When you move to France, gyozas aren’t the first foods which come to mind. I should be writing a diary about all the baguettes and eclairs I eat, not Japanese finger foods. For those who are interested, I eat a lot of baguettes, but we had one with lunch today and it was a BIG […]

  • Prune and fennel sausage rolls

    Prune and fennel sausage rolls

    Quite often, the best things in life are wrapped in pastry. We can all agree a pain au chocolat is a thing of beauty, especially if the chocolate is slightly molten. Apple turnovers and eclairs were mine and my sister’s chosen bakery treats – as I bit into the sugar-speckled shell of a crisp apple […]

  • Bacon and marmalade sandwich

    Bacon and marmalade sandwich

    Christmas Eve is the sparkly magical wait before the big event. And it’s the perfect excuse for a bacon and marmalade sandwich. Mince pies are being defrosted and dredged in snowy icing sugar, we bundle up in coats and gloves and hats and march around the local countryside for a walk, and the radio serenades […]

  • Roast chicken, lime and herb salad

    Roast chicken, lime and herb salad

    This year we have all made a new friend. That friend is called Lockdown. He’s not a friend to everyone – he’s quite smothering and bossy, to be honest. He says he has your best interests at heart. But if that best interest is me eating my body weight in baguette and not taking any […]

  • Croque Madames

    Croque Madames

    I’m surprised I’m writing this at all, dear reader. I’ve been staring at a blank screen, or in this case my notes app on my phone screen because my laptop suddenly and catastrophically broke, for days. You would have thought lockdown would be the perfect opportunity to bake up a storm, share those tempting treats […]

  • Dinner on a budget: Bacon and egg congee

    Dinner on a budget: Bacon and egg congee

    We are all familiar with that countdown to January payday. Those five weeks from Christmas to the end of the first month of the year lasts an eternally long time, years not weeks, as we wait, nervously gazing at our empty bank accounts and wondering how much we should chip into our savings. January is […]

  • Lamb koftes

    Lamb koftes

    And so the mince pies are dwindling, the turkey curry is tucked away in the freezer, the cheese board has been scraped clean, and the recycling bin is full of prosecco bottles. The old year always ends with a gut-busting feast and the new begins with much anti-bac and taking out the bins. But, oh […]
