Apple & pumpkin soup

The perfect autumn soup – sweet apples, mixed with pumpkin and warm spices. 

Carrot & Ginger soup

Having lots of carrots coming from the garden in Autumn, this is the perfect meal to use them up on.

Lightly spiced, it’s perfectly suited to the cooler nights, that are now drawing in to signify the coming, cold winter months.

Masala mackerel

I love the taste of mackerel. Its strong flavour can really stand up to the mix of spices added to this dish. This same paste can be used with other curry dishes too. Why not try chicken, lamb, or even vegetable curry. Serves 2 Ingredients: For the paste 1 tsp fennel seeds 1 tsp cumin…

Lamb rogan josh

What can be better than eating a curry with a glass of home brewed beer, sitting by the fire with friends?

Prawn & potato curry

​This is one of my favourite curries. It takes little effort to make, but has an amazing flavour. 

Toad in the hole

A classic British recipe. At home, we usually use pork sausages, when we cannot get hold of decent quality toads.

Fish pie

I make this on quite a regular basis. The recipe varies sometimes, as I try to use up left over veg. I have been known to put a few chilli flakes in as well.

Lamb Rissoles

Thanks to my grandad, these will be forever known in my family as arseholes. I love them, though they don’t seem to be that well known in the UK.

Nutroast

This is a traditional Sunday roast alternative – just as time consuming to make, but tasty and super healthy.
