Happy New 2014!

Happy New 2014!

Well it's been a while. I have to admit that a very busy autumn has led to the sad neglect of my blog. But new years being what they are, it seems only right to start this one with a resolution. Which is, of course, to try and update it more often. I do have quite a...

Dinner 8 June or 6 July?

I guess it's not surprising that I'm asked for Asian food for most of my jobs. But, if you know my cooking background, you'll understand that I miss traditional Italian home cooking.  Cucina casalinga, as it is known, is the essence of Italian cuisine, and even in...

Sweet Sorrel Tart – HFW’s

I saw this recipe in the Guardian on Friday, the 4th May.  It caught my eye and I liked the sound of using sorrel in puddings.  We also have an abundance of sorrel in our garden which grows happily and I have not used it all that much.  I think it's because the plant...

Gravad lax – it’s really easy!

A few weeks ago I went to the closest fishmonger in my town and bought a big chunk of fresh tuna, which at that point, I had no idea what to do with.  Beside the tuna, I also bought the freshest looking samphire/glasswort, as I love this sea vegetable cooked the...

GONG XI FA CAI – Happy New Year!

Even though I am not Chinese, my family has lived amongst Chinese families as long as I can remember. In fact one of my sisters was married to a lovely Chinese who sadly died at a very early age (36 years old). We remember him fondly when we sit around my parents'...

“Sop kacang merah”…red bean soup

I think my Indonesian friends would not agree with my red beans used here (aduki) as that was all I happened to have in my cupboard, not the red kidney beans normally used for this soup.  I love this soup, filling, full of flavour and pretty healthy too.  Growing up...
