Kale is one of our favourite vegetables at the moment, consequently I planted four different varieties on our garden about three weeks ago and we’re already picking and eating it.

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).

As I’ve talked about above, this is my version of the meal I ate at Aux Fins Gourmets last month. I’ve made this twice so far. The first time I served it with poached salmon and last night with brill. It’s easy and delicious. Don’t think you can only serve the broad beans with fish. […]

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 […]
