Caribbean Vegetable Curry and Coconut Rice

I am always keen to try new things in the kitchen. As you’ve seen so far, there have been dishes inspired by Japanese cuisine, Indian cuisine, Italian and French cuisine, and plenty of other world-wide cuisines. After wanting to order jerk chicken for so long, and not actually doing it because it required a long walk to pick it up and they were always sold out, I decided to take matters into my own hands. It’s such a shame that I have lived in South London for nearly a year and still haven’t had proper peas and rice or jerk chicken but we’ll get to that post-quarantine. For now I will experiment!

Miso Tofu with Asparagus and Broccolini

It’s been repetitive days in my kitchen lately as I fall into the fatigue stage of quarantine. Where cooking was fun and exciting, a welcome distraction, it has now become a chore.

If you haven’t heard of it, halloumi is a cheese from Cyprus – a salty, semi-hard, deliciously fry-able treat. I would eat halloumi with every meal if I could. Frequently in London, halloumi is served alongside a delicious breakfast fry up. Recently, however, we decided to incorporate it into our lunch. Here’s how you can do the same.

Chickpea Fritters

This blog started as a series of posts on my Instagram story. I had forgotten about those recipes ! A lot of them are already posted here in more detail, but I was reminded of a lovely and simple classic recently. All it takes is some basic veg and a can of chickpeas and you’re good to go… Continue reading Chickpea Fritters

Four Tapas Recipes

Do you ever find yourself wishing you were in a sunny square in Spain sipping Sangria? Now more than ever, nearly every day, I find myself longing for summer in Spanish towns, especially in the Basque region where my tapas can be enjoyed with txacoli. Since we still can’t tapear from bar to bar, you can recreate the sunny specialties in your own kitchen Continue reading Four Tapas Recipes
