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.

How it began.

Garden Invaders II

I mentioned that the plants I had been considering weeds turned out to be tomatoes seeded via my wormery. I was right, and I now have tomatoes!

Breakfast Fatty

Fatty After Cooking

A Fatty is a very easy and basic thing to BBQ. It is also surprisingly tasty. At its most basic, it is a simple loaf or roll of sausagemeat, smoked at a medium temperature until done – the inside should be moist, and the outside crisp. Then there are the many variations – instead...

Under cover

August 17, 2013

For a while now, I have had two vegetable troughs under cover, with hoops and fine netting, and two open. This suited what I was growing; unfortunately, this year the cats have discovered what a wonderful litter tray my open troughs can be. Considering that I am trying to grow veg, I find this...

Garden Invaders

August 17, 2013

I haven’t been that organised in the garden this year. I keep blaming it on the poor spring giving me a bad start, but it’s really no-ones fault but my own. In spite of this, I have had good crops of salad leaves, courgettes, carrots, and two excellent crops of sugar snaps, which I...

More adventures with cold smoking

May 25, 2013

Yesterday, I smoked a mixture of cheddar and soft cheese, using oak for the first time, instead of my usual applewood. I find it is not normally a good idea to taste smoked cheese even a day after smoking – it is better left a week. But I couldn’t resist, and I can’t help...

Iron Horse Ranch House, Market Deeping

Since getting involved with American BBQ, I’ve become more aware of how this style of food is increasing in the UK, both in terms of restaurants such as Barbecoa, and smaller eateries and take-aways. However, I somehow missed one opening in my own town.

More cheese, Gromit?

More cheese, Gromit?

My “cutting down on food spending in supermarkets” took a big hit today, when I spent over 50 quid on food in the Co-op.
