Gochujang Hanger Steak

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: hanger steak is delicious. It has gained notoriety in recent years for being extremely tender and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. It used to be a very cheap cut of beef, but prices have increased with demand. The truth is that the hanger steak doesn’t do anything during a…

Parsley Crusted Lamb

You know when you find an ingredient that is just so beautiful and delicious that you want to keep it simple? That’s how I feel now that I’ve discovered this incredible lamb from Eat The Kiwi. This is an incredible, simple dish and it really doesn’t take a long time or a lot of prep…

Green Pearl Barley Risotto

The world is currently in turmoil, and there is a seismic shift occurring right now. I don’t know why the murder of George Floyd is the straw that broke the camel’s back, because I know the Black people have been protesting against discrimination by the police for decades. But, for some reason, something has clicked….

Fennel & Orange Chicken

I haven’t always liked fennel, it’s a very distinct flavour. If you don’t like licorice or anise, then fennel is not going to be to your liking. But, it is a delicious vegetable that should be given a chance. The orange and fennel perfectly complement each other, sweet and savoury blending well together. This is…

Slow Cooker Kalbi Short Rib

At the moment, given the global crisis, people have a lot of time to invest in the food that they are making at home. A lot of people are being forced to cook at home, with restaurants being closed, but others are desperately trying to scrimp and save on every penny because of the economic…

Bacon-Wrapped Monkfish

Monkfish is a great, meaty fish, that holds its shape well. It’s versatile and works great as a substitute for cod or haddock. Sadly, in efforts to find substitutes for cod and haddock, monk was being over-fished. This is no longer the case, but responsible purchasing is always advised. However, you do need to salt…

Spiced Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa and Homemade Crema

I love tacos. I really do. Especially when they are an exciting combination of flavours and are made with delicious, fresh ingredients. I know it might be hard to find some of these ingredients at the moment, given the global pandemic, but if you can, then believe me you should give these salmon tacos a…

Brown Butter Beef Tenderloin

I always used to be scared of cooking steak at home because I never thought I would do it justice. Whenever I used to cook steak, I would buy cheaper cuts (or steaks that weren’t raised in a more sustainable fashion) and over-cook them. To be honest, my tastes have changed over time. I’m sure…

Slow Cooker Tomato Chicken

My slow cooker hasn’t had much use recently, and the with the need to practice social distancing, prepping things that will cook during the day while I crack on with working from home. With shops being cleared out with panic buyers around the world, this recipe makes use of things you probably already have at…

White Chicken Chilli

I’ve been eating a lot of chicken, mainly due to the fact that it’s a very diverse source of protein, and not expensive to get hold of. In this time of panic-buying shoppers who seem intent on clearing out the shelves of everything every day, I’ve been looking to try and use things I have…

Chipotle Chicken Fajitas

Some of you might know that I’ve recently been working on a healthier lifestyle, making sure that I fuel my body with the right nutrients for Strongman, while also getting a bit leaner. Because of this, I have been making very basic meals just to make sure that I’m getting the right calories, etc. That…

Coconut Curry Chicken

Sometimes you just need an easy meal that doesn’t require too much effort or preparation. This meal came about because I had some coconut yoghurt that needed using up along with some chicken thighs. You will need to allow the chicken to marinade, but that would be the hardest part. If you want to add…
