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.

Reusing My Garden Furniture

May 25, 2020

My garden furniture is 8 years old, and I really haven’t taken the care of it that I should. It was on my list of things to do for a long time, so when I hired some gardeners to do some work, stripping and retreating it was high on the list. However, I am considering an...

A tough trough.

May 24, 2020

For the first time in about 4 years, I have all 4 of my vegetable troughs planted with vegetables. But boy, that 4th one was tough.

Brusseling Things Along

May 22, 2020

I planned a trip to the garden centre today. With nothing to plant in my recently cleared third veg trough (of four), and not yet having any herbs for my recently bought VegTrug Herb Table, I needed to do some shopping.

New growth

Broad Beans

My garden has gone through a couple of years of neglect. This started with a year where I did very little, then when faced with the work needed to bring it all back, simply procrastinated. In November last year, I hired a couple of guys to get the garden back in shape, as I...

April 30, 2020

It's been a while since I last posted (except for the minor rant a moment ago). I keep meaning to get this blog going again and put some effort into it. Anyway, on everybody's mind at the moment is Covid-19 and how it affects the weekly shop.

Pasta Evangelists

Pasta Evangelists

So, Pasta Evangelists. Fresh, artisan pasta at artisan prices, by post. I've ordered this twice before, the last order in March. I have to say, the pasta is really nice and the sauces great. But last time, when I should have gotten 3 pots of parmesan and 1 pot of (similarly coloured) bechamel, I ended...

Christmas Cabbage

December 25, 2019

An easy to prepare side dish for any festive meal. This was one of two dishes I cooked in advance (the other being mashed swede), so I didn't have too much to do on Christmas Day.

Virgin Pure Water Bar

Virgin Pure Water Bar

I have been looking at plumbed in water systems for a while. After deliberation, I decided the Virgin Pure Water Bar is a neat solution and while it is bigger than the Brita it replaces, it is almost the same size as my coffee machine, so doesn't look out of place next to it.

Slow Cooker Poached Pears

September 22, 2019

Not so much a recipe as a general idea. I will post a recipe at a later date, when I have finished experimenting.
