Chicken and noodle soup

Posted by in Appetisers, Food Porn, Main courses, Recipes

This recipe for Chicken and noodle soup is strongly influenced by my love of Japanese, Chinese and Thai cookery. It contains some strong individual flavours like ginger, lemongrass, garlic and chilli. Combined them with the honey and sherry though and you've got a delicious and light soup. It'll warm you through and leave you feeling cleansed and satisfied. Just what's needed to lift the Winter blues and start the year in the best way possible.

Burnt Honey & Apricot Flapjack

Posted by in Baking, Food Porn, Recipes, Snacks

This recipe is perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons and demands you enjoy it with a cup of tea - I could probably say that for a lot of things though! Using burnt honey instead of the usual golden syrup really adds to the flavour of the flapjack and turns them into something a bit special. It's hard to explain, so you'll just have to try this recipe!

Pork wonton soup

This is turning out to be one of my all time favourite soups. It has an amazingly fresh flavour and smell and leaves you feeling good. I put this down to the ingredients and their positive effects - honey, ginger, lemon, garlic and I suppose you could count sherry too, right? It's just like a natural cold remedy. The recipe includes making your own wonton wrappers, filling and the soup.

Panacotta is relatively easy to make, but looks impressive when you serve it at the table. You could drizzle honey on top, or maybe make a fruity sauce of some kind. I'll give you some ideas after the recipe.

Gammon joint, glazed vegetables and a parsley sauce

Posted by in Food Porn, Main courses, Recipes

Gammon joint and parsley sauce is an awesome combination, which is why it's such a classic recipe. I've added a little treat with the glazed carrots and courgettes - the sweetness goes very well with the pork. There will probably be some meat left over, so I'd suggest making yourself another nice meal with cold meat and bubble and squeek. Yum!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Posted by in Brunch, Food Porn, Recipes, Snacks

I had not heard of pulled pork until earlier this year. Typically, once you are acquainted with something, you see & hear of it all the time. So, I decided to look into this as it appears to be so popular. I read lots of recipes on the net and there are so many variations and stories about where and how it originated, I got completely confused at first and put it to the bottom of the list of dishes to try. It kept playing on my mind though and I finally decided to give it a go...
