Chimichurri and feta spiked mung bean sprouts in a baked, jumbo spring roll

Chimichurri and feta spiked mung bean sprouts in a baked, jumbo spring roll I expended most of this weekend searching for a replacement car after mine was written off a couple of weeks ago. A van rammed into the back of my car at some traffic lights (I had stopped already) crushing the entire boot. I had a few moments of breathless hysteria because my little one was in the back, but fortunately, we are ok. A bit of whiplash,…

Sundays At Grill On The Alley

I have to admit I have a soft spot for Grill on the Alley. When asked to arrange the work Christmas do, it was one of the first places I thought of and where we ended up in the middle of December drinking far too much prosecco. I have reviewed it before, but this time I was back to take on their new Sunday lunch menu. More about the Sunday lunch later,…

Pipikaula | The Domestic Man

Pipikaula, like many dishes in Hawaii, is the result of several cultures colliding. First, let’s talk about how beef became part of the Hawaiian diet, since cows are not native to the islands. In 1793, famous British Navy explorer George Vancouver gifted King Kamehameha I (the chief who first united the Hawaiian islands) a bull and five cows; the king placed a kapu (Hawaiian taboo) on the hunting of these cattle and their descendants that lasted through 1830; by 1845…

Sunny Parisian Carrot Bowls | Stonesoup

Apart from potatoes, my Irishman has a thing for carrot salads. So when I came across the ‘carrots from the charcuterie’ in my friend Clotilde’s fab book ‘Tasting Paris’ I started playing around.  The secret is to use the best carrots you can. I had a bunch from my friend Ellen’s garden which were out-of-this-world good. But I’ve also had success with baby carrots from my green grocer. Although thinking about it, I’m sure supermarket carrots would be good too.…

Sweet, silky heat-Beetroot and wasabi houmous

  Sweet, silky heat-Beetroot and wasabi houmous   For someone who has typically felt unruffled by change, I am experiencing a lot of it at the moment. I was having a conversation with a loved one, in my head the other day.  I was telling them that I am looking forward to getting up there, in front of an academic group of grown-ups listening to me with notes before them and grit in the heart, sleep in the eyes. Then…

Arugula Pesto Pasta with Garlic Shrimp

I’ve never been someone to buy souvenirs while on vacation, rather I just stock pile ideas for recipes from my meals while traveling and bring them home so I can reminisce about where I’ve been. And that’s exactly where this Arugula Pesto Pasta comes from! Perhaps my most favorite meal in all of Italy, a few years back, was at this little beach club off the coast in Positano called Da Adolfo! It’s literally just a tiny beach with a…
