Winter Paella with Chicken, Meatballs and Sausages

Posted on: 4th Aug, 2014by frenchie

When most of us think about paella and what’s in it, we think rice with seafood and perhaps pieces of chicken and chorizo cooked in a pan of the same name. With a little reading I found that Valencians claim that they invented the dish and according to traditionalists their version is the only one […]


Mussels in a Spicy Sauce

Mussels in a Spicy Sauce with Tomatoes, Chorizo, Cannellini Beans and Cavolo Nero

Posted on: 28th Jul, 2014by frenchie

This is one of our favourite meals using mussels – everything you need is in one dish, it’s full of flavour and you can make it as spicy as you like by using a milder or hotter chorizo. I like cooking it in this deep enamelled dish as you can take straight from the stove […]

Basque style Baked Eggs

Posted on: 8th Mar, 2014by frenchie

Having bought peppers and tomatoes from Shane last weekend, fresh duck eggs from Jason and chorizo from Salash I decided to make these baked eggs for lunch on Monday (our day off). They’re really delicious with plenty of fresh bread. Once you have the tomato and pepper base you can add other things – this […]


Roasted Monkfish

Posted on: 6th Mar, 2014by frenchie

Last week a customer commented that she enjoyed cooking the fish tagine I did a couple of weeks ago because more hearty fish dishes are good during the winter and it’s often difficult to find them. That prompted me to come up with this recipe. I used monkfish because that’s what Jimmy had last week […]

Lamb shanks

Lamb Shanks with White Bean & Chorizo

Posted on: 5th Mar, 2014by frenchie

This recipe came about one Sunday afternoon last year on a cold winter’s day having arrived home from a day at our market. We felt like something filling and warming for dinner. I just made it up from produce I’d bought from our stallholders during the weekend – lamb shanks from Jamie, chorizo from Salash, […]

This week’s recipes are thanks to Catherine Bell. I know Catherine’s an expert in cazuelas and easy recipes to cook in them so I phoned her for a few ideas. This is her chicken recipe and I used an idea she gave me for the vegetable dish. I cooked both in cazuelas – the flavours […]

Last weekend in my cooking demonstration in our Kitchen Shop this very simple quick recipe proved to be a hit. Everyone who tried it loved it. It’s great as a lunch dish or as a meal when you don’t feel like meat or chicken or is a good accompaniment to either of those. If you […]
