Pumpkin Kale & Coconut Soup

coconut soup

If there is one thing I love most about Autumn, it is the colours. Burnt oranges, russets, mossy greens and fading yellows all mingling together to form a perfect Autumnal scene with shiny nuggets of conker brown dotted amongst the falling leaves. I also take great pleasure in seeing the glorious pumpkins displayed in the […]

Have you ever tried Japanese pancakes? Okonomiyaki. Well I hadn’t until yesterday when I decided I must try out the pancake mix bought from this Japanese supermarket by Mr.Scott along with a few other treats recently.

An introduction to Korean Foods & Korean Fried Chicken

Korean fried chicken

An interview with Dan Suh, MD of Korea Foods.   How long have you been MD of Korea Foods?

Tomatoes with a Greek Salad Dressing

If I could, I would probably eat Greek salad every lunchtime during the week.  I love it, especially when piled into toasted pittas with some hummus on the side. During the summer months I always have a packet of Feta cheese in the fridge. I do eat so much of it. I love it’s mild, crumbly […]

After a quick trip to the allotment, I was presented with some fat leeks,crisp spring onions and a bunch of colourful rainbow chard. The chard I tend to fry […]

This post was supposed to be all about tofu burgers. I found the recipe I wanted to make, made them, and then realised I had used the wrong type of tofu. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as firm tofu. Where do you buy it? Certainly not anywhere near me, I am […]

Every now and then I get parcels of food products through the post to review. Sometimes there are enough of the  good ones to warrant me doing a monthly “Food News & Reviews” feature. I am mindful that I don’t want my blog to become known for reviews alone. Recipes are what I love to […]

Green Olive & Date Breadsticks

I just love sweet & salty popcorn. That’s not all. I think I generally love sweet & salty flavoured foods. Take my last post for example. A sweet & salty orange, date & green olive salad. Well that is exactly what has led me to this post.  Breadsticks that capture the sweet and salty combination […]

I have for you here a little sunshine in a salad. Inspired by the flavours of Morocco. Chilli spiced oranges, sticky dates, salty tangy olives and refreshing flat leaved parsley with a splash of extra virgin olive oil.  Yes, it is a salad. But, it’s not supposed to be a “diet” salad. More of a […]

I have managed to create two fantastic soups this week out of a need to use up some bits and pieces that have been lurking in both fridge and freezer, the first of which will feature in this post, closely followed by soup number two next week. It must be the onset of Autumn, the […]
