Carbonara

A traditional Italian pasta dish. As my wife has a dairy alergy I made this with soy cream and vegan cheese.

Venison rissoles

I made these whilst making some sausages, so the recipe will also work for that, if you have a sausage maker.
Serve with potatoes or with a salad.

Pot-roasted venison haunch

I first had a version of this at a deer skinning/butchery course with ‘Wild cooking bath’. It was so good we recreated it for our Christmas day dinner.

Gammon cooked in mead

I had the idea to try this one for myself, after my Sister in law’s fiance cooked us a gammon in Coca Cola. I then found out that Bob Thornton, of Moremead had already done it.

Thai-green Curry

I love a Thai green curry, and its much better to make the sauce yourself than to buy one in a jar.

Spicy lamb & vegetables

Quick and easy to make, and super tasty. The flavour of the lamb can really stand up for itself against the spices in this dish.

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.
