French Pork Pie with Chestnut & Apple

My version of the pork pie – Petit Pâté de Porc des Cévennes – as shown on Masterchef: The Professionals  for one of the technical challenges – it uses belly pork, smoked Black Forest ham, cooked ham, apple and chestnuts, all encased in puff pastry (rather than hot water crust pastry that is used for traditional British […]

Red Pepper Soup

A vibrant, full-flavoured soup, this is a great way to use a surplus of fresh peppers and tomatoes. And as much as I love more intricate cooking, simplicity often wins over. I often freeze both peppers and tomatoes in the autumn once they have ripened and this soup also works well with the defrosted peppers […]

Thai prawn bites in a coriander & sesame seed pastry

Post updated March 2016: new photographs added and recipe tweak Juicy marinaded prawns in a coriander and sesame seed pastry make wonderful nibbles and they are very easy to make. They are excellent served hot or cold. This was initially an idea for using up some raw prawns and some herbs and spices I had […]

Miniature Savoury Choux Balls

I had already made a post some time ago extolling the joys of savoury choux but here are two more lovely fillings: cheese sauce with ham and mushroom duxelles with garlic. Just perfect for canapés or with a salad for a light lunch. I made a batch of these using a 3-egg choux pastry (180ml […]

Thai-style Butternut Squash Soup with Prawn Dumplings

Spicy vegetable soups are a delight to eat, especially at this time of the year with the wet and dreary weather sweeping the UK. Good comfort food, a generous bowlful of this type of soup is almost a meal in itself when served with some home-made bread, spread liberally with butter. For a change I […]

Roasted Garlic Breadsticks

Roasted garlic, with its squidgy, sweet intensity, is a great addition to any bread; I often mix several bulbs worth into a standard bread dough after its first rise resulting in a bread with random, but not too infrequent, jewels of heavenly garlic. With these breadsticks, small bursts of sweet garlic punctuate each mouthful beautifully […]

Raspberry and white chocolate Wedding Cake

I had already made and posted a “trial run” of the main cake for my recent Civil Partnership when I had a go at it back in the summer but why stop at one main feature when there could be two? So a macaron tower HAD to be included…… I tweaked the cake for our […]
