Recipes

Chatchouka

A Tunisian Summer Dish.

The vegetables in this dish of course are best in the summer but they are also available year round in most places.

Even if it is not summer time, this is actually a very effective way to inject just a little bit of mediterranean colour into a cold wintery day.

Cooking for One or Two – Sole Meuniere (Fried Fish in Butter Sauce)

Do you recall the scene in the film ‘Julie and Julia’ - when Meryl Streep playing Julia Child falls into raptures at a Parisian restaurant table as she devours Sole À La Meuniere?  She is exalting over the delicious butter sauce.

Apple Coleslaw

I have looked for a long time for the right type of coleslaw to have as my go - to dish, as a side for the likes of Chicken Schnitzel or Roast Pork Belly. I was thrilled to find this one by no other than Wolf Gang Puck. Of course it is excellent, easy to make and positively delicious.

La Quiche Lorraine

Surprise yourself and make this traditional, fuss free, quiche recipe.  Sourced from where all good quiche comes from - Lorraine in France. Everything is made from scratch, and dead easy. Impress everyone, even yourself by making your own pastry!

Spaghetti alle Vongole (Pasta with Clams)
Vongole are small clams. Most good fish mongers sell them or they can order them in for you. The tiny ones are particularly tasty if you can get them.

You can prepare this dish in the time it takes to cook and drain the pasta.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

This recipe is ever so simple, flavoursome, nutritious and comforting on a wintery day or evening. It requires only a few ingredients and will be on the table in less than an hour.  Serve with some fresh bread or hot toast and butter.

Chicken Schnitzel

Dinner in less than 20 minutes!

This is a particularly easy recipe that is very quick to prepare and cook and delicious to eat.  It creates tender chicken with a lovely, crisp, golden coating.  Serve with mashed or parsley potatoes, or of course your favourite coleslaw.

Baked Ocean Trout

This ridiculously good dish, only takes minutes to prepare and cook yet is just as perfect for an elegant dinner party as a mid-week meal.

The recipe calls for a side of fish that you cut and serve at the table.  I particularly love Ocean Trout, though Salmon or other firm fish such as Blue Eye are also suitable.

Perfect with a potato gratin if you have the time, otherwise mashed or parsley potatoes are delicious and a simple salad.

Creamy Lemon Pasta

This dish is one of the simplest, quickest, most comfortingly, unctuous dishes of pasta you can imagine. Most of the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. It is just as perfect for a no-fuss midweek dinner, an elegant dinner party, or for when you are just feeling sorry for yourself and need some cheering up!

BRAISED LENTILS (with DUCK)

Braised lentils are a delicious, nourishing cool weather dish.

Slices of cooked duck make an admirable addition.

Mind you, you can exclude the duck all together and enjoy a lovely, earthy, vegan meal.
