Bangladeshi Lamb Biryani

An amazingly tasty and super easy Biryani. A few tweaks by the team at HelloFresh and it's now super easy. I loved this dish there, was so much flavour. I am sure, using chunks of lamb rather than lamb mince would be more traditional and change the whole makeup of the dish but the mince [...]

Caramelised Halloumi with Minted Freekeh Pilaf and Roasted Red Pepper

Apart from in Cyprus where it originated the UK has apparently exceeded all other european countries in its consumption of Halloumi cheese. It's not hard to understand why. This is my second favourite cheese behind the mighty cheddar. Actually joint second with Feta, I do love a bit of Feta... and mozzarella you can't beat [...]

Minted Lamb and Feta Burgers With a Crunchy Salad

Normally when I want a burger I want cheddar cheese, blue cheese, bacon, black pudding, burger sauce, mayo, ketchup, mustard, cooked onion, raw onion, onion rings,  lettuce, rocket and any other accompaniment you could think of, not all at once obviously although I wouldn't say no to trying that.

When I think of Moussaka I think of Greece. It does however, like most dishes, have many variations. Across the Balkans for instance it [...]

Jamie’s South East Asian Chicken Curry with Fluffy Rice

Now I am slightly biased, I would eat anything Jamie Oliver put in front of me. I have nearly all his books, dvd's, eaten in his restaurants and had a cooking classes at his recipease store. I can honestly say he is the reason I started cooking and growing. His Jamie at home book is [...]

Mexican Broth with Spicy Beef and Beans

I wasn't expecting much here. The thought of a bowl of broth doesn't really set my taste buds tingling. It is hard to think you can be satisfied by what really amounts to a lumpy drink. Once again me and my thoughts have been proven wrong.  Not only did this meal satisfy, it had more [...]

Treat Day tomato, Chorizo and Mozzarella Orzo

Just looking at these ingredients you know what this is going to taste like, and this really does live up to the expectations. Great flavour combinations literally stuck together with soft stringy mozzarella.  For a while now I've been banging on about big pasta, you know the Rigatoni', tortellini they carry more flavour and feel [...]
