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

Cottage Pie with Cheese Crusted Leeks

A few weeks ago I posted my results with Jamie’s Shepherd’s Pie and I really enjoyed it. This time I thought I’d go for a Cottage Pie. For those who don’t know the difference, Shepherd’s Pie uses lamb, Cottage Pie uses beef. As I do a lot of Jamie and Delia dishes I thought it only … Continue reading

Apple Mash

This was one of the accompaniments to Barney Desmazery’s Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly that I cooked for Sunday lunch. It’s really tasty and a bit decadent so I hope you enjoy it, especially as it’s so easy to make. Ingredients: 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped 1 large Bramley apple, cored, peeled and chopped … Continue reading

Shepherd’s Pie

It’s a classic of British cooking isn’t it, the superb Shepherd’s Pie. I’m thinking if I should just call this blog – “Cooking with Jamie and Delia” as it feels like all of my recent recipes have been from one of these two giants of English home cooking. It’s probably not the case, so I’ll … Continue reading

Spiced Spanish Tortilla

This week we booked a holiday and we’re doing a bit of travelling around Andalusia in Southern Spain. We’re going all around the place and I can’t wait to sample the food, so much so that I’ve decided to try a few dishes inspired by Spain. First up is a twist on the traditional tortilla (or Spanish … Continue reading

Jim’s Sweet Potato with Tuna & Salad

Sometimes I see a recipe and think “Yeah, but what to put with it?” and then I see a suggested accompaniment and all of a sudden I’m thinking “Why haven’t these been combined into one?” The two recipes in question today are for Tuna Sweet Potato Jackets and a Tomato, Cucumber & Coriander salad. They’re … Continue reading

Hasselback Potatoes

If you’ve seen my last post for beer battered fish (by Donal Skehan) you’ll have seen that the fish was served with something called Hasselback potatoes. Again I got the recipe from Donal and you can find it here along with his beer battered fish recipe. I hadn’t heard of these before so I did a … Continue reading

Champ

Champ proves the Irish are genius, forget the famous black stout, this is the best. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like mashed potato and when it’s done properly (i.e. with spring onion added) I think it’s the perfect accompaniment to any hearty meat dish. This recipe was from the BBC GoodFood website and you … Continue reading

Marinaded Steak with Root Vegetable Mash

I take it we’ve all heard of Delia Smith, she’s done more for home cooks over the years than any other modern UK chef I can think of. When I saw this recipe for marinaded steak I thought it would go great with a mash recipe I’d seen when I was doing my pork steaks … Continue reading

Spanish Omelette

This is one of Wife’s favourite dishes. Put simply, it’s peasant food with simple flavours in a classic combination, it’s not hard to understand why. We had a lot of eggs in the house for some reason which is why I decided to grab a bag of new potatoes and try this particular Spanish omelette … Continue reading
