Fennel braised in orange, lemon & lime juices – slow-cooked & simple

Pumpkin, Spinach & Rice Tian

A Tian is a French oven dish used for both cooking  and serving. It is also the name of the dish prepared in it.  I’ve mentioned Spinach here but its ok to use any other leafy green vegetable such as kale. I actually used cavolo nero leaves stripped from their stalks. Around 2 large bunches. […]

Vegetable Tagine

This week’s recipe is vegetarian but is also works really well as a base to which you could add pieces of chicken or fish instead of a selection of vegetables. I realise as I’m writing this that I hadn’t noted any quantities as I cooked this the other day. It doesn’t matter though, its not […]
