Provencal Chicken

Provencal Chicken

Posted on: 8th Mar, 2014by frenchie

Last week I remembered that I used to make this dish a lot and we’d always really enjoyed it. Somehow I’d forgotten about it. It’ll definitely be a favourite again. I’d describe the flavour combination as south of France mixed with a little French Moroccan. Ingredients and Method (for 6) The day before (or at […]

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 […]

Israeli Couscous and Vegetable Salad

Posted on: 5th Mar, 2014by frenchie

Before I start this week’s recipe, just to let you know that we’re in the middle of re-organising all the recipes on our website so they’re much easier to find. Consequently most recipes are down while we do this. In the meantime if there’s something you’re particularly after, phone or email and we’ll send it […]

Marinated Chicken

Posted on: 5th Mar, 2014by frenchie

This week’s recipe is another we’ve tried both on the BBQ and in the oven. The longer you can marinate it during the day the better. Deidre in our market has a really good selection of fresh free range chicken – pieces in various forms and whole chickens. 
Next week I’ll give you a couscous […]

As the weather slowly starts to get warmer and we begin to use our BBQ more, we’ve been trying a variety of things on the new Emile Henry grill pieces I showed in last week’s email. A couple of nights ago we cooked on a fillet of salmon on the fish grill. This recipe is […]

Pork Belly in Saffron

Pork Belly in saffron and almond sauce

Posted on: 13th Feb, 2014by frenchie

It’s difficult to take a photo of this dish but I can assure you it tastes much much better than it looks. It’s another easy Spanish inspired recipe. The sauce would work equally well with chicken pieces or even a firm meaty fish such as monkfish. I bought the pork belly from Churchill Meats. It […]

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 […]

Rice with Fish Saffron Espelette

Rice with Fish, saffron, espelette, peppers and Alioli

Posted on: 12th Feb, 2014by frenchie

I’m still on a bit of a Spanish thing in what I’m cooking at the moment and this week is about using Spanish rice in a dish other than paella. The inspiration came from a Rick Stein recipe. You can see that I’ve cooked this in a cazuela again and I’ve also used espelette which […]

Mediterranean Lamb Meatballs

Posted on: 10th Jan, 2014by frenchie

I’m not quite sure why I came up with this recipe this week but maybe it was because last Friday I noticed lamb mince as Churchill Meats were setting up for the weekend. That prompted me to start thinking about making meatballs for dinner one night. Rather than stick to a pretty standard sort of […]

Chickpeas and Cavolo Nero

Posted on: 8th Jan, 2014by frenchie

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 […]
