char roasted spring onion tartines with viking salt

char roasted spring onion tartines with viking salt

Its been a while since I got this excited about a new ingredient. I mean the name alone is enough to inspire. Maybe because my lineage is linked to Viking, or the fact that I’m in love with the TV series and Ragnar Lothbrok, or simply because I’m obsessed with salt, but this Viking salt is something quite extraordinary. You will want to use it in recipes where the essence wont lost against other strong flavours. It needs to shine. Its a great finishing salt and a perfect addition to sprinkle over fairly neutral flavours. I thought it would be perfect for these char roasted spring onion tartines. Continue Reading →

my favourite fruit and nut cake

My farourite easy fruit and n ut cake

If I’m not making my super easy boiled fruit cake with stout and I want to go all the way, I make my all time favourite fruit cake with loads of fruit and nuts.

Its my favourite kind of cake for any tea time.  Continue Reading →

baked stout chocolate doughnuts with a chocolate glaze

The richness of the chocolate milk stout works perfectly with these baked chocolate doughnuts, adding depth without overpowering. They are a delicious alternative to fried doughnuts and are very easy to whip up.

Ok so I know that baking a doughnut is kind of cheating and I resisted for a while, but then I spotted one of the pans and thought why the hell not? I mean the calorie saving plus the mess-chaos avoidance after deep-frying are enough of a reason to get me on board. Then I love cooking and baking with milk stout, especially the Castle Milk Stout Chocolate, so this was a perfect fit. They are so super easy and very quick to bake.  Continue Reading →

chicken meatballs with spaghetti & marcella hazan’s famous tomato sauce

chicken meatballs with spaghetti & marcella hazan's famous tomato sauce

When I think of cooking chicken mince, I immediately lean towards Asian flavours with loads of green onions, ginger and chilli. I want hoisin sauce and fresh leaves on vermicelli noodles, but that recipe will have to happen another day. I was desperate to make Marcella Hazan’s legendary tomato sauce so I settled on Italian flavours here. Spaghetti was the only option pasta wise, because chciken meatballs and spaghetti go together like Mia and Sebastian from La La Land. Obviously ground beef will work perfectly with this sauce and these are may favourite meatballs in case you were wondering, but I’m desperately trying to clear out a full freezer and had a bee in my bonnet with this chicken mince.
