Crayfish recipe

Summer time means seafood and the king of all seafood is Crayfish. The succulent sweet meat of crayfish tails needs very little fancying up and personally I am not a fan of Crayfish Thermidor, which I find so rich and honestly, why muck around with one of natures most...

Indian Kofta recipe

Kofta Indian style with a rich tomato and yogurt sauce is just so morish your family will be wiping the bowl with whatever Naan bread is left over. Kofta is really a Greek dish but most countries do something like Kofta with various sauces and ingredients like this...

Prawn Bhajis

Prawn bhajis are delicious little snacks that you will probably have to make a double batch of. The prawn and fresh fresh herbs compliment each other so perfectly that you will need every ounce of willpower not to hide them from everybody you made them for. Prawn...

Shoulder of lamb supreme

Shoulder of lamb recipes you do not often find. For some reason it's a lesser used cut of meat that is most often used in curries and the like cubed and off the bone. Well, I tell you this recipe is fantastic, it's a roast so takes little effort (long roasting time...

Apple passion crumble

This is a really great recipe. Hot Apple crumble with whipped cream or ice cream is one of my real favorites but the passion fruit and pear flavour added to the apple is just fantastic. Don't be shy with the whipped cream on this one, forget any diet your are on and...

Scotch eggs

Scotch eggs are simply delicious and perfect for breakfast or lunch with a nice salad. Having them in the fridge over weekends allows you to whip up a great meal in seconds but beware, they seldom last long enough. They are great hot or cold and take little effort to...

Italian style baked beans

Bean dishes are really under rated and this Italian style baked bean recipe with a golden crust is just fantastic. I must confess, I seldom cook beans but the idea that beans on their own can be a meal caught my eye and I just had to try it. They were very tasty but...
