Chard & Ricotta Crumble

I’ve been really enjoying my veggie subscription bag from EatFresh, and I’ve been working on a bunch of recipes using what I get sent each week. When I first received chard in my veggie bag, I was at a loss as to what to do. I’d eaten it, but I’d never cooked with it before….

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…

Okra Polenta Fritters

I had a friend leave Hong Kong a few months ago, and was given all of her cooking supplies – including 800 grams of polenta. So I’ve been finding ways to use it, as it’s not something I normally have at home. Given the need to social distance, and reduce our contact with others as…

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…

Sugar-free Peanut Butter Cookies

I know it’s been a very long time since I posted, but there is a very good reason for that. With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19, schools have been closed since the Chinese New Year holidays. This means we are now teaching online, supplying resources to carry out e-learning, and instead of…

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…

Almond-Crusted Trout with Roasted Leeks

I haven’t had trout at home since I made it almost 18 months ago with my friends, based on the Jamie Oliver recipe for oat-crusted trout. I saw it on the fridge shelf, and couldn’t resist. I decided to try using up some almonds, as I have seen nuts being used to coat meat all…
