Beef Chilli always seems to go down well with most people, we love it in our house. It’s one of those dishes you can just throw together, I don’t think any two of my chillies I’ve cooked have been the same! I have put this recipe together though to cover the basics and a few … Read More →

‘Ome Made Kebab I have been fond of kebabs since my beer swilling teenage years… You could not beat that garlicky, salty meat stuffed into a pita with slice cabbage, grated carrot, raw onion, sliced tomato and cucumber then drizzled with lemon juice, yoghurt & mint and hot chilli sauce after a night out on … Read More →

Mike, our butcher, had got a couple of Ox Cheeks in. I’ve never had them before but I thought I’d give them a go. I’d read about them and understood that they needed a nice slow cook. Apparently they make an absolutely wicked chilli, or should that be cheeky chilli!  I think the bit of … Read More →

We love a good burger in our house. We don’t have them very often so when we do it’s a real treat. Our children have never been to a McDonalds, Burger King or any other junk food purveyor. I can imagine that when they do (although I’d like to think they never will…) it will … Read More →

Our Butcher sometimes gets some very nice wild venison in. When he does we always make sure that we get some venison neck in, we usually buy quite a bit for the freezer. Venison neck when cooked long and slow is great. It makes fantastic curries but this was a first for us. I can … Read More →

you may have noticed that there are a few references to slow cooked smoked meats on the Blog. You wouldn’t be wrong. I recently acquired a big American style smoker/BBQ and it’s been getting a fair bit of use. I love proper American food, I’m not talking McD****ds or K*C here but big hunks of … Read More →
