  • Bacon and Cheese Quiche
    There you go, I'm being posh and calling it quiche! It's really a good old bacon and cheese flan. It's a pity that so many poor imitations of this superb rich savoury egg

  • Pickled Eggs

  • Scotch Eggs
    The popular snack Scotch Egg has been much abused by the food industry if the supermarket's offerings are anything to go by - even worse those mini Scotch Eggs served as a

  • Taramasalata
    Taramasalata or taramosalata, the spelling's different, but the product's the same. It was only a couple of days ago that I realised that I hadn't reported back on what I
