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.

Being even thriftier with the pizza habit

June 13, 2019

Back in January, I posted about buying Dominos pizza using their lunchtime 2-for-1 deal; eating a slice or two, then freezing the rest. This gives me a choice of pizza on hand, easily (and tastily) reheated, for £1 a slice. But I’m now using a different deal that takes the cost down to two...

Being thrifty with the pizza habit

January 14, 2019

As some of you will know, I have a fondness for Domino’s Pizza. Naughty, I know! 🙂 The problem is that while it is good (or, at least, less bad) for my diet to buy a single small pizza, it works out incredibly expensive. A large pizza is 4 pounds more expensive than a...

Black Friday – Anova Sous Vide

November 21, 2018

For foodies out there. I’ve been watching the Amazon Black Friday sales for sous vide kit, cos I thought it is just the kind of thing they would have. And as of now, they do. They have the Bluetooth model, which they have listed with a RRP of £119, but regularly sells for £99;...

Coffee: Brown Bear – Breakfast Blend

November 12, 2018

At the moment, about half the coffee I am drinking is the Revelation blend from Union I wrote of earlier, and the other half are different blends I am getting through my subscription with The Coffee Roasters. But before I signed up with them, I’d made a couple of random purchases, not quite knowing...

Experiment with BBQ Lamb

September 15, 2018

I’ve just been on holiday, and of course I took my Davy Crockett grill with me. After a few days out and about, I decided to spend a day at the cottage we were renting, and cook some simple BBQ. I smoked some burgers for our lunch, and put on a small pork shoulder,...

Coffee: A Revelation.

September 5, 2018

For the past month or so, I have been experimenting with coffee, following a purchase of a bean to cup machine. I must catch up sometime soon with the story of the machine and how I have gone from someone who hated coffee to someone who quite likes it. Anyway, for now I am...

Simple BBQ Automation

August 31, 2018

A while back I refitted my larger Traeger pellet grill with a new home-built controller. Unlike my earlier attempt, which was only semi-successful, this is not trying to control the pellet feed (and thus the heat/smoke mix) by temperature control. At its heart is a simple 5 quid timer device, which allows you to...

Cold Smoking Again

May 28, 2018

I became aware that many people use the CSG in a normal BBQ, and decided to give it a try. But I never did. I use a pellet grill, which would be switched off during this process (we are talking COLD smoking). The cardboard box was a vertical arrangement with ventilation by the tray...

Adventures with coffee

May 25, 2018

I don’t drink a lot of coffee, but I do like the odd cup. Up to about 15 years ago, I didn’t drink it at all. I really disliked the taste as a drink, which was odd, as coffee flavour in a cake I loved. Then I realised that it wasn’t necessarily coffee I...

BBQ Cleanup

April 19, 2018

Finally got around to the great BBQ spring cleanup. A simple enough job, but between illness and the weather, I hadn’t managed it. Both grills currently have their manky parts in oven shelf cleaning bags, and will be that way overnight; then I need to give them a good hose and scrape. Meanwhile the...
