An evening with Tim Maddams

We have fostered a tradition to buy each other foodie treat for Christmas or birthday. Previous gifts include a Gourmet break at Northcote, a dining experience in an old Pullman train carriage along the Carlisle-Settle line, chocolate making at School of Artisan Food and learning how to butcher a pig with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. This year …

Make Eat Get Read Go – April ’14

The concept of Make Eat Get Read Go (MEGRG) was only conceived mid March so you may think it’s not long since the last post, but I’m planning on posting them at the end of the month so here is April’s offerings. Unsurprisingly this edition has an Easter-ish theme. 1. Make Lamb Creme Eggs I’m …

Slow Cooked Lentil Ragu

Since buying our slow cooker before Christmas I’ve tried some of our old favourite recipes in it to see how they fare. Some work very well, some not so much. This is one of the recipes that is improved with a slow low cook. It transforms the sauce into a thick, rich almost meat-like sauce …

Make Eat Get Read Go – March ’14

I’ve decided to start a new blog series called Make Eat Get Read Go that looks at the things I want to do and discover in the next month. Some I’ve heard on the grapevine, some from friends and some I’ve spotted on my travels. You’ll notice there is a slight Derby bias with the …

The “Easier Than it Looks” Birthday Cake

It’s only on special occasions that I bake big cakes here. I was asked to bake a special cake for my Mother-in-Law’s 60th birthday. The original brief was a sugarpaste creation, but time limitations didn’t allow this, then I remembered the cake that Lorraine Pascale made in her first series of Baking Made Easy. You …

Slow Cooker Passion Fruit and Coconut Creme Caramel

I love creme caramel. I like to think of it as a slightly healthier version of my favourite dessert, creme brulee. Yes, I know I’m kidding myself. Hubs has a rather disgusting habit of being able to eat a whole shop-bought creme caramel in one slurpy mouthful. I’m a recent convert to using a slow cooker …

Cheese & Onion Fougasse

Saturdays have become Soup Saturday here. Most weekends, even through the depths of a rather wet winter, Hubs has been working outside on building the pizza oven. This means lunches have to be quick, warm and grabbed when ever the time is convenient. Also soup means the labourers can spend as little time as possible …
