Two Salads – Kohlrabi, Mint and Rocket and Beetroot, Leek and Walnut

Posted on: 3rd Jun, 2014by frenchie

I know it seems a bit odd to be doing salad recipes at the start of winter but we spent last weekend up north and the weather was very mild – too warm for a winter soup that I’d made so I used produce growing in my garden and vegetables I’d bought from various stallholders. […]

Oven Baked Hapuka

Posted on: 6th Mar, 2014by frenchie

This is a really easy meal that can be prepared and cooked very quickly. I use a heavy cast iron frying pan that goes from the stove top into the oven, so everything is done in one pan. The fish sits on a bed of leeks and is topped with a herbed bread crumb crust. I […]

Venison in Sherry with Roquefort Cheese

Posted on: 5th Mar, 2014by frenchie

Now that evenings are a bit cooler I start to think more about slowcooked meals rather than the BBQ. Last weekend Deidre of WILD GAME convinced me that I should buy her diced wild venison. I’m glad she did. It was delicious. It was obviously meat from a young animal as it was the colour […]

At the beginning of last week when the weather turned nasty I decided it was time for soup again – it’s hard to beat a hearty vegetable soup. I’d bought a big variety of vegetables at our Market during the weekend so had plenty to go into a minestrone. In Italy there are lots of […]

I just made it up from produce I’d bought from our stallholders during the weekend – lamb shanks from Jamie, chorizo from Salash, […]

Posted on: 5th Mar, 2014by frenchie

Last weekend Deirdre of Wild Game tempted us with her wild goat osso bucco pieces. Although we’re in the middle of summer and usually BBQ every night we decided to slowly cook it but in a lighter sauce than I might in the winter.  It was very tender and light – a bit like very […]

Poached Chicken with Tarragon Sauce

Poached Chicken with Tarragon Sauce

Posted on: 5th Mar, 2014by frenchie

The inspiration for this dish came from the one we ate at ‘Aux Lyonnais’ back in the 1980s. Poached chicken may sound a little but boring the sauce going with this is anything but boring – it’s delicate, full of flavour and easy. As well you’ll have a good chicken stock to keep and freeze […]

Posted on: 8th Jan, 2014by frenchie

In France this week’s recipe NAVARIN OF LAMB is regarded as a spring dish with lamb and baby spring vegetables. However we think it works any time of the year. In the winter Warwick and the team make more hearty and earthy with the addition of winter vegetables Ingredients Diced lamb (make sure the pieces […]
