Amazing Seaweed Butter for Steak

For me the best way to finish off a great steak is to slather it with a delicious compound butter as soon as it comes off the grill. A good piece of meat needs nothing more done to it and whilst I’m partial to a Bernaise sauce as an accompaniment, I don’t like to mess […]

Cardamom, Rose Water & Pistachio Cake

The title of this cake includes three of my favourite ingredients so I knew it was going to be right up my alley, and I was right. This cake is just a lovely combination of flavours – warmth and earthiness from the cardamom, beautiful aroma from the rose water and wonderful nuttiness and moistness from […]

Cinnamon Roll Cake

I’ve called this a cake but it’s probably more accurate to describe it as one giant cinnamon roll. There’s something very addictive about cinnamon rolls – yeasty sweet dough, buttery cinnamon filling and that vanilla frosting that seeps into all those nooks and crannies.

Miso Crab Risotto with Ginger Butter & Crispy Tarragon

It’s hard to photograph a risotto that is almost all white and make it look appealing, well hard for me anyway, but I can assure you that this crab risotto from Donna Hay is very delicious and very indulgent. I love the use of miso and ginger that give this risotto just a little nudge […]

Blue Cheese & Walnut Crackers

Apologies for my long absence – we’ve just returned from a long holiday to Canada and Alaska. I do normally publish posts when we’re away but the scenery and natural splendour of that part of the world were so amazing that I wanted to spend as little time as possible on my laptop. As you […]

Coffee & Walnut Cake

The term “coffee cake” in America usually refers to any type of cake that would be good served with a cup of coffee, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the cake contains any coffee. The coffee cake in this recipe however, whilst it is fantastic with a cuppa, is the old-fashioned English fair stall type of coffee cake […]

Layer Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Layer cakes make a fantastic celebration dessert. They not only look impressive but they’re delicious and can feed a large number of people. I made this three layer cake for a birthday dinner for 12 and there was still half a cake left over – which is not a bad thing! The batter for this cake […]
