  • Mushroom and Kale Soup
    Blimey, not another soup recipe! We've already had nettle, tomato, wild garlic, chicken, vegetable, artichoke, pumpkin, and even another mushroom one! I know, I know, but
  • Nettle Soup
    Mention something for nothing and my eyes generally light up - that's how I came to be making nettle soup. The first thing to do is persuade someone to pick a bowl of youn
  • Tomato Soup a.k.a. Ghost's Blood!
    Well that's crept up on me without me noticing! It's Halloween on Monday: that special day when little kids can 'mug' old people with impunity! At this point, 'proper' blo
  • If you go down to the woods...
    If you go down to the woods... ...it's likely that you'll find some wild garlic. Or, if you've a good friend who house-sits where there's a woodland garden, you may be luc
  • Onion Bhajis and Tamarind Chutney
    Another buffet favourite that can be made for pennies. Onion Bhajis 8 Tablesp Gram flour (sieved) 1 Tablesp Rice flour (or SR Flour) ½ Tablesp Cumin powder ½ Tablesp Coria
  • Salmon Mousse with quick Mayonnaise
    You know how it is, your mate Maurice rings up from the market to tell you that they've got big bunches of dill for sale for a quid, so you ask the wife to get the two tai
  • 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
  • Buckling Pâté
    Maurice brought me a buckling at the weekend from Cookies Crab Shop . Now, for those who don't know, buckling is a whole smoked herring and like all herring is full of bon
  • 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
  • Potted Ham
    There comes a time of year when it gets a bit too hot for pea and ham soup, so short of just pigging out on them, I had to find a use for the ham hock and knuckle from my
  • Falafel and Pita Bread
    I make no claims as to the authenticity of this recipe - 'cos I made it up! It's an amalgamation of a few I've seen online over the last year, or so. Falafel 300gm Dried c
  • Pork Liver Pâté
    There's only so many faggots a man can take (I hope no-one in the US is reading this!). So what's different that you can do with the masses of pork liver from your half pi
  • Vegetable Soup
    You know, there are some days when you just can't be bothered. Today was one of them. Pauline seems to have got a 'bug' and I think I'm 'sickening' for it so neither of us
  • Samosas
    My mate John brought me some samosas to try. They're from a shop on Green Lane Road and are superb. Mind you, the Tamarind dip which accompanied them about blew my brains
  • Pork Pie 'Sausage' Rolls
    You know those days when you get the most stupid ideas? Well, today was one of them. I thought I would try out a new pastry recipe for pork pie. Why? I don't know, everyon
  • Store Cupboard Starters
    Food for four and two more arrive wanting food? It happens to us all sooner or later. Today was my turn. Only thing for it is to conjure up a starter. Today, faced with th
  • Tapas Croquetas
    An article called 'Leftovers are a cheaper, greener option' at the Daily Telegraph reminded me of a snack/starter I haven't made for some time. Croquetas – croquettes or c
  • Pumpkin Soup
    Emma and her boyfriend were carving pumpkins yesterday. One that they had bought had some bruising so they decided not to use it. Dad, therefore, ends up with a pumpkin to

    I'm surprised that anyone with a blog makes pâté – It's just took me ages looking up the character codes for the 'a with a circumflex' and 'e with an acute' accent. I made
  • Goats' Cheese and Beetroot
    Summer at last! My good mate, and excellent gardener, Bob West, gave me some smashing beetroot and Dad had brought some goat's cheese back from France. What a superb combi
