Inamo

Inamo

It had almost become an urban legend, “that restaurant where you play battleships on the table?” During my 18 months that I have been in London & constant eye-outs, this question had cropped up once in a while, but no one has ever been able to remember the name of this restaurant or where it is located,  ”I...
Easy Green Thai Chicken Curry

Easy Green Thai Chicken Curry

This is one of the most basic curry recipes in existence, yet up until this attempt, I managed to screw it up every single time. My problem: overexcitement with the curry paste, which lead to food so spicy that 75% of my dinner parties chose to have just rice instead. The other blonde was adamant...
The Goats Cheese and Fig Verdict....

The Goats Cheese and Fig Verdict….

This was compltely delicious – OK, so they didn’t look quite like the picture..but it was totally YUMMY! Firstly, I’d say that, before cutting the goats cheese, keep it well refridgerated. I made the mistake of leaving it at room temperature, which I should have known would make it soft and harder to slice neatly..Nonetheless,...

Ingredients Chicken joints...

Wholemeal Soda Bread

This is from a recipe card that I picked up in Daylesford Organic – and it really is so quick and easy…and when removed from the oven, hot and smelling like the contents of a bakery, I admit that, in an instant, the butter and Marmite were out in full force, to devour with this...
Jamie Oliver's 'Incredible Smashed Pea and Broad Beans on Toast'

Jamie Oliver’s ‘Incredible Smashed Pea and Broad Beans on Toast’

This is a recipe that I tried years ago and have loved ever since. It is quick and easy and the colours are so vibrant. It is perfect either as a canape or as a starter, and if there’s any left over, it’s just a great thing to have in your fridge, to have with pasta,...

Simply Scrummy Chocolate Truffles

The ‘Can you Taste it?’ Truffle Challenge   These are a naughty treat that are really easy and really fun to make. The idea might make you think ‘time consuming,’ but in actual fact they can be whipped up in no time! Obviously just ‘Chocolate on its own’ is delicious, but for those of you...
