  • 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
  • Fig Jam
    Until a couple of years ago, I'd never come across anyone with a fig tree. Recently, I've met two people growing them locally. This year's been a good one for them and I'v
  • North Staffordshire or Derbyshire Oatcakes
    It's quite amazing how certain foods are so local, that even though you live in the County bordering those where they're made, you've managed to get to 56 years old withou
  • Wild Garlic 'Pesto'
    It's coming up to one of my favourite times in the 'foodie' year. The local asparagus season is just around the corner: it's already started in some parts of the country.
  • Pickled Walnuts
    Pickled Walnuts Something I'd forgotten to write about is the batch of pickled walnuts I made in July. It's too late now to make them, you'll have to wait until next year
  • Beetroot Relish
    The Christmas preparations march on. Blast, I've gone and said the C-word when I'm meant to be a miserable old Scrooge. This could ruin my reputation! Anyway, enough of al
  • Spanish Omelette 'Tortilla'
    Given that the Spanish were in S. America for such a long time, and that in Mexico they speak Spanish, I've always found it odd that 'tortilla' has a different meaning in
  • Queso blanco, or Paneer (Panir)
    Over on the sausage-making forum someone asked for suggestions of a cheese related activity to do with a group of school kids that wouldn't break the bank. I immediately t
  • 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
  • Lentils and spinach
    It could be said that I lack a love of lentils. I guess, like most things, it's what you're brought up with that decides our preferences in later life. Now, don't get me w
  • Bramley Apple Tart
    This recipe shows that Bramley apples don't have to turn to 'mush' when cooked. The apples stay in well defined pieces. It makes a nice change from apple pie and is elegan
  • Roast Chickpeas
    Here's a quick healthy snack for all you body-conscious guys out there! Heat the oven to 200°C. Drain, wash & dry a can of chickpeas and mix with a few drops of oil, a cou
  • Further Adventures with Ciabatta
    Last year I started playing with higher hydration doughs and made a not particularly good ciabatta . At the time I didn't experiment further, so I thought I'd better give
  • Hot Cross Buns
    I was going to post this recipe yesterday, but the test batch I made weren't very good. Then I realised I'd picked up plain flour instead of bread flour! Also, they weren'
  • 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
  • Pretzels
    Initially, I wasn't that pleased with these pretzels, thinking that the outside should be more crispy and the centre less dense, but then Hannah, my daughter who went to B
  • Savoury Biscuits
    84 pence for a packet of water biscuits; they're having a laugh! I couldn't believe it when I looked in the supermarket - 84 pence! After all they're only flour, oil, salt
  • 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
  • Chelsea Bun-ish Recipe
    Now I know if I call this recipe a Chelsea Bun, someone (You know who you are - Robert!) will come along and say, "Oh, no it's not, a Chelsea bun is made with currants, le
  • Wholemeal Bread and Rolls
    For a long time I've been thinking that I should have a 'bash' at making a 'proper' wholemeal loaf; you see in the past to avoid the heavy texture often associated with 10
  • Soft Bread Rolls
    With summer, hopefully, just around the corner - that is, if we've not had all we're going to get already - I thought I'd have a go at making a 'burger type' soft roll, mi
  • Rhubarb Chutney
    Dad brought me some rhubarb earlier in the year and I made 'rhubarb turnovers' with it, using the rough puff pastry that I have written about before. The only trouble is t
  • American Style Mustard
    I'm have a love/hate relationship with mustard. It's one of those things that I have phases of eating. A while back it was just Coleman's Mustard Powder mixed with a littl
  • Our Daily Bread
    If the number of people posting 'Wanted' requests on Freecycle is anything to go by, there's a lot of interest in bread making at the moment. I'd like to think it's all ab
  • 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
  • Artichoke Soup
    It started last week when Dad asked me what root veg has a top like a sunflower – turns out, it's Jerusalem Artichoke. Now, the only thing I know about this veg is its pro
  • Cheese Choux Nibbles
    Choux pastry rings alarm bells with many people who presume it to be the domain of the professional pastry chef. In fact, as pastry goes, it's one of the simplest – it doe
  • Duchesse Bubble
    When you post about the amount of food that is wasted in the UK today, you feel obliged to use as many of your own leftovers as you can. 'Bubble and Squeak' has been a fav
  • Chocolate 'fudge' Cake
    I originally posted this recipe in December 2007 but it proved so popular at a recent buffet that I make no apologies for re-posting it here. This cake is great! It's real
  • National Chilli Week - Sweet Chilli Sauce
    Apparently, it's National Chilli Week from 26th November to 3 December 2007. It's a bit of a coincidence really, 'cos on Saturday I experimented with making my own Sweet C
  • 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
  • Millionaire's Shortcake
    In the run up to Guy Fawkes Night there will, no doubt, be plenty of recipes for traditional bonfire food. Parkin will almost certainly feature so there's little point me
  • Cheese and Onion Rolls
    I was going to make some more Cinder Toffee today to check that I had given the correct temperature in the recipe. However, we had to go out and there wasn't time to make
  • Cinder Toffee
    It's coming up to Halloween and Bonfire Night so the web is full of appropriate recipes – many trying to make culinary delights out of pumpkin! I'm not that fond of pumpki
  • Pear and Almond Tart
    Hannah (my eldest daughter) has had a friend stopping so I felt I had to do a pudding with yesterday's dinner. Having been given some Conference pears I found that they we
  • Blackberry Vinegar
    It's amazing the things that get discussed in my local. If they televised it, people would say it's too daft to be believable! Anyway, the subject of Blackberry vinegar ha
  • Marrow and Apple Chutney
    What do you do when someone gives you a big Marrow and your Dad appears with a bag of Bramley Apples? Y'up it's Marrow and Apple Chutney! This time I thought I'd try to ma
  • Beetroot & Horseradish Pickle
    This recipe started with one of those pub conversations “I'm thinking of making beetroot pickle but I've got this idea to add horseradish to it. I don't know where the ide
  • Blackberry and Apple Jam
    Those of you who read my entry a few days ago entitled What a Plonker! will know that making any preserves and chutneys in this house is a bit of a hit & miss affair. So,
  • Curried Marrow Chutney
    To say that little half-starved eighteen stone nephew, Mickey, likes chutney is like saying dogs like bones. He devours the stuff. A pot will sometimes last him as long as
  • 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
