harissa salmon

Life Kitchen harissa salmon with fennel yoghurt salad

A couple of weeks ago I went to help at a Life Kitchen cooking class. This Life Kitchen harissa salmon was one of the dishes that was part of the day and it was so good and easy that I bumped into most of the students in the supermarket over the road right afterwards as

fennel and lemon freekeh

fennel and lemon freekeh

I’m a bit in love with this fennel and lemon freekeh recipe and I think you’ll love it too. Whenever I think about this recipe I have the sound of Missy Elliot – Get Your Freak On playing in my mind, except I change freak to freekeh. So now it is in yours too. Sorry

salmon tacos

salmon, rainbow chard, fennel, pumpkin seed tacos

I didn’t know that taco night was a thing until I moved to California. Now I’m a convert. Mostly because having tacos for dinner means I can throw a few leftovers, something fresh and lots of healthy veggies onto the table and my boys will make their own dinner. It is a very sociable way

salmon with tomato fennel sauce

salmon with tomato fennel sauce and broccolini

Faced with a pretty standard fridge full of ingredients the other night, I wanted to make something seasonal, healthy and quick. This salmon with tomato fennel sauce and broccolini is what I ended up with. It was a perfect combination of virtuousness and deliciousness and was very fast too. This type of quick tomato and

one pan prawns with fennel, tomato and smoked paprika

When the weather gets hot I start to reminisce about the meals I’ve eaten on summer holidays through the years and have the urge to recreate them at home to bring back happy memories of traveling. For 3 years running, we went to a crazy music festival in Spain and spent the following week camping

pulled pork crostini topped with fennel and lemon salad

I always try to come up with new toppings for my party standard of crostini. My inspiration usually comes from food combinations I enjoy for dinner. In this case the inspiration came from my fallback entertaining option of 4 hour roasted pork shoulder, crusted in fennel seeds which I serve with a citrus fennel salad.

baked fennel

an indulgent baked fennel dinner

This baked fennel dish is a perfect Friday night in front of Netflix dinner. It is an unashamed hearty, indulgent standalone dish (if it makes you feel better, even with the cream I reckon its still healthier than a take away pizza). Just the thing to enjoy at the end of a long week in

a giant sausage roll fit for a Royal Wedding

Just one look at Prince Harry and you know he loves a sausage roll. I’m with him. Let’s hope Meghan has learned to love them too. A giant sausage roll is a brilliant party centerpiece. Let people cut a sliver or a wedge off with a bread knife. Add jars of mustard, pickle and a bottle

I love a good Royal Wedding and the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no exception. Pulling together the best bits of California and Britain is something I’m pretty adept at, so to help you celebrate the big day, I’ve created a party menu with recipes that bring together the best of

tacos and how to make taco night delicious

Until I moved to California from England, my experience of tacos was very limited and I’d never heard of taco night. Like most Brits, I had memories of those dusty boxes of crunchy Old El Paso tacos, stuffed with minced beef and topped with loads of cheddar cheese. Not good. My first taste of a proper taco in

pulled pork tacos

Pulled pork tacos

This pulled pork tacos recipe is one of the reasons I fell in love with tacos. It came about, as many of my recipes do, when I wanted to use up leftovers. in this case pulled pork and roasted carrots. About as un-Mexican as you can get but the flavours and textures work beautifully. You

risella

risella

I’ve eaten a version of this since I was little and cook it all the time for my boys. It makes no claims to authenticity but it is delicious and easy and that is enough for me. My Dad first made it in the 1980s on a single burner when we were camping in Spain

slaw

Slaw the easiest way to max out your veg intake and brighten your meals

I can’t believe it has taken me this long to add a slaw recipe to my site. Although I did make this video a couple of years back. It is probably the side dish I reach for most, and often becomes the base of my lunch or dinner. I think the reason I’ve never added

fish stew

Italian fish stew – a one pan mid-week treat

First up, this is not a fish stew with all sorts of shellfish, tenticles and gubbins in it. I do love those French stews, but they are a lengthy, expensive process and more likely to turn off the squeamish amongst you. This is definitely in mid-week dinner territory, although I’d be pretty delighted to have

easy pilaf

easy pilaf

I know how excited everyone gets about a good one-pan dish. This family-friendly, easy pilaf has minimal hands-on time and dish washing but maximum flavour. Purists will note that this isn’t an authentic recipe, but the results are delicious so that’s good enough for me. This is a great lesson in balancing flavour, texture and

curry with spiced squished potatoes

Curry is my comfort food and this curry with spiced squished potatoes is perfect for when I have a curry craving. Being back in England, with so many great Indian restaurants means I don’t have to cook to have a great curry. But making your own is always a healthier option and costs much less

stuffing

my favourite stuffing

I grew up, like most of us did, with stuffing out of a box. I do still have a nostalgic taste for that stuff, but once I tried making my own stuffing I found it hard to go back. Because the stuff in a box is so common, I always thought that making stuffing must
