Braised Red Cabbage

I was cooking a large shoulder of pork and I didn’t want to go overboard on the side dishes so I just went for some roast potatoes and this braised red cabbage with balsamic vinegar. There are many recipes for this out there, you can find it with apple or juniper or a myriad of other … Continue reading

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

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

Mustard Cabbage

This was served alongside the Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly I did for Sunday lunch and thought it would make a stand alone post as it’s really simple to make and would make a great accompaniment to most pork, chicken or fish dishes. Ingredients: 1 small savoy cabbage 3 tbsp double cream 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard … Continue reading

Mango, Chilli & Coriander Salad

Ingredients: 1 x ripe mango, chopped into 1cm cubes 2 x red chilli (alter to taste), finely chopped 1 red onion, finely diced Small handful of coriander leaves, chopped Method … Continue reading

Baked Beans

What does the term “Baked Beans” conjure up in your mind? Is it quick snacks with a slice of toast, the full English breakfast, diving in straight from the tin, cowboys ‘singing’ around a camp fire or that favourite childhood dinner with fish fingers or burgers or something completely different? Well, whilst you’re musing over … 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

Sweet Chilli Sauce

If you’ve read the lamb kofta recipe you’ll see that my original plan was to cook them up and just dip into some of my favourite Blue Dragon sweet chilli sauce. The recipe I found however had its own recipe for a sweet chilli sauce, I had some time and thought I’d give it a … Continue reading

Coriander Humous

I found this recipe attached to a lamb kofta recipe which I was quite interested in so I thought I’d do this on the side and post it as a separate recipe as it’s great to be able to knock up so quickly. You can find the whole lamb kofta, coriander humous, chilli sauce and … 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
