Welcome to my Food Adventure
To rediscover real food, regain the habit
of cooking from scratch with locally sourced
ingredients, and free myself from the
banality of the supermarket.

A nice find

Popped into a friend’s today, for a cuppa and a chat. On the way home, I had time on my hands, so I drove into Sleaford, to the Design and Craft Centre there – I’ve driven past the signs many times, and always wondered what it was. It was interesting, but not what I...

I’ve long been a follower of the PelletHeads BBQ forum, which catered specifically to the kind of pellet-fueled smoker I use. For various reasons, PelletHeads has gone dark, but a new forum has appeared, set up by many of the people who were a driving force behind the earlier forum. It is very welcome,...

I've just given Graze another try. Back in 2013, I took up their "first box free" offer, but it turned into a bit of a hash. The free box never turned up, and Graze's only response was to offer me a box at half-price. This didn't fill me with joy, so I cancelled my new...

So, not a bad meal yet. Rather than creating new posts for every meal I cook and snap, I’m just going to post the next few pictures here, so anyone interested can see how the meals turn out. This was the Black Bean Chili Burrito. 40 minutes in the oven, and very tasty. This...

June 1, 2017

Another Everdine meal, and another success. Chicken was well cooked; rice was nice and separated, not sticky; salsa added a nice sweet acidic touch.

Over the last year, I’ve been experimenting with various ways to put my recipes online, mainly for myself, but also with a degree of sharing, if possible. The main objective was to gather together the hand-written and typed notes, both from my own experiments and various cooking courses I have been on. There was...
