Sumptuous Turkey Pie

I was in a quandary as to what to call this pie as Turkey, Bacon, Leek and Mushroom Pie was too long and Turkey Pie didn’t quite do it justice. So I settled with Sumptuous Turkey Pie as I think this title suits it perfectly. The rich creamy sauce marries so well with the turkey, …

Chocolate & Pistachio Mousse

I don’t know about you but I want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible at Christmas. The two main reasons are because I want to spend quality time with my family and friends and the other is because I’m usually flagging by Christmas day. With this in mind I gave an …

Pork in Grapes

This is a dish my mum used to make regularly when I was growing up. It then became a regular in my household and then got forgotten about for a few years. Sometimes it’s nice to give your favourites a rest and then rediscovering them makes them all the more special. When my son’s old …

Strawberry Choux Buns

This recipe is one that I have re-created from a one-off childhood memory of some beautiful, heavenly Strawberry Choux Buns. My mother made them for my grandmother’s coffee morning when we were staying with my grandparents one summer in Denmark.

Tomato, Carrot and Dill Soup

Many moons ago I worked for a few months in a catering firm that was also a delicatessen.  One of the soups we made was Tomato, Carrot and Dill and it is the only flavour I can remember as it was my favourite. More than 2 decades have passed by and I decided it was …
