Chicken & Chorizo Paella

We’d just got back from a trip around Spain and although I knew getting the same produce we enjoyed over there would be an impossibility in Yorkshire I was determined to try a paella recipe. I went to my favourite recipe sites and 4Food provided me with what I was looking for. You can see the … Continue reading

Japanese Rice

If there’s one thing that a lot of East Asian cultures take very seriously it’s their rice. When I prepare a Japanese dish I like to have it with sushi rice. It’s a short grain rice that gets nice and sticky but holds it’s individual form. I love it with a heavy helping of shoyu … Continue reading

Yakitori – Japanese Grilled Skewered Chicken

I’ve been cooking this for so long I really didn’t think I’d remember where I got the recipe from but just in the bottom right hand corner of the scrappy page where it’s written I can just read a web address which would take you here where you can find the recipe I started using a … Continue reading

Italian Rice with Chicken

This week I’m looking at some hearty and inexpensive meals. Funnily enough I’ve taken all of them from the BBC GoodFood website. It’s a wonderful resource for the home cook and there’s so much on there that I reckon you could use it every day and it would keep you cooking until the end of … Continue reading

Cashew Chicken

It was back to Ken Hom’s Complete Chinese Cookbook for last night’s dinner and specifically it was his Cashew Chicken (p.142). I served this up with some of the really simple egg fried rice I posted a couple of weeks back. Serves 4 Ingredients: 450g (1lb) boneless, skinless chicken breast 1 egg white 2 tsps cornflour salt … Continue reading

Chicken Fried Rice

Here’s part II of my Ken Hom Complete Chinese Cookbook meal and it’s one of those dishes that everyone thinks of when they think of Chinese food – fried rice, this time of the chicken variety. I’ve already put a very simple version of Egg Fried Rice on this blog, this one is a little … Continue reading

Egg Fried Rice

So earlier I put up my recipe for perfect rice and I have to be honest, it wasn’t just out of the goodness of my heart. I was expecting to be eating alone tonight but Wife’s plans got rearranged and now my M&S ready meal for one wasn’t going to suffice – unless we ‘bulked it up’ … Continue reading

Perfect Rice

OK, so every now again I’m going to throw in a tried and tested method of cooking something, I did it with the Chilli Ramen Sauce you might remember? This time it’s rice. For some reason there seems to be a great deal of panic when it comes to cooking rice, I have no idea … Continue reading

Corned Beef Hash with Rice

Today’s, simple and delicious, recipe was originally given to me by my Dad but it’s evolved over the years and I think it’s time I got it down. This is part of the wonderful genre I refer to as ‘Peasant Food’. This isn’t a derogatory term by any means but (and this is the Wikipedia … Continue reading
