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.

And recipes too…

February 7, 2017

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...

January 15, 2017

Barbecoa is no longer the BBQ-centric restaurant I remember from previous visits, and had recommended to friends. No pullled pork (perhaps they think it is too common, these days), no pigs cheeks, no pit beans, no Barbecoa Burger. No spectactular mixed bread board.

Christmas Dinner for the Single Man

December 25, 2016

I’ll be dining alone this year, but don’t see why I shouldn’t do it in style. One of the things about getting a roast right is making sure everything is ready at the same time. This year, I am doing everything – everything – in the oven, which should make life simpler. The turkey...

HelloFresh – Sausages with Lentils

December 16, 2016

My third recipe with HelloFresh, and – once more – one I thought I didn’t need a recipe for, and was pleasantly surprised. I know how to cook a sausage – even one wrapped in bacon. The surprise was the lentil stew that went with it. It’s not something I have done, and it...

HelloFresh – Haddock with Aubergine and Butter Bean Stew

December 14, 2016

My second HelloFresh meal, and it turned out really well. The bag for this recipe came with a nice big aubergine, an onion, some parsley, a can of butter beans, a carton of passata and some paprika. In the fridge I had the haddock that had come in their chill bag. I’m not overly...

HelloFresh – first recipe

December 13, 2016

My choice for the first recipe was something that looked easy. A Jamie Oliver recipe for “Chicken Traybake”. Simple enough to prepare – chopping tomatoes/onions/peppers into large chunks, and arranging in a baking tray with chicken thighs, salt, pepper, thyme, balsamic, and olive oil. Then put into an oven for an hour. I’d just...

HelloFresh – Recipe Box

December 12, 2016

So, another week, another recipe box scheme. This week it is the turn of HelloFresh. I hesitated over trying them as, unlike Gousto and Mindful Chef, they only offer 5 different recipes a week, which means if you are on their 5 meal plan, there is no choice; and even on the 3 meal...

Gousto: Lemon Linguine With Crab

November 9, 2016

I’ve had a couple more Gousto boxes since my last post on the subject. All of the meals have been very nice, but this – Lemon Linguine With Crab – is one of the best I have cooked. I wasn’t sure of the chilli flakes, but it did a really good job of cutting...

Kitchen Safe

October 16, 2016

It seems that, during the day, I am only in danger of bingeing in the hour or so after I eat my first biscuit(s). After that, I seem as likely to take another biscuit as anybody else. So setting the Kitchen Safe to 2 hours takes the biscuits out of reach for that danger...
