Roast Potatoes

Some would say these are the perfect accompaniment to any roast dinner – who am I to argue there? The only place we might come to a disagreement is in the size of the perfect roast spud. Personally I like them quite small, less than the size of ping pong ball. I find you get … Continue reading

Baked Eggs with Spinach, Tomatoes & Garlic

By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life … Continue reading

Shepherd’s Pie

Well, whilst you’re musing over … Continue reading

Ingredients: 450g strong bread flour (plus extra to roll … Continue reading
