This dish is inspired by a recipe of the same name from a River Café cookbook and is one which exemplifies simplicity at its best. It contains a mere 4 ingredients (pasta not included) which come together perfectly to create a zesty and refreshing summer pasta dish. It is even better when it is made [...]
This is not the first time I have introduced Pete. Almost two years ago now (how time flies!) he shared with us his recipe for Creamy Bacon Carbonara which has proved to be the most popular recipe on the blog since it was posted! Hopefully this one gives the other a run for its money. [...]
I feel very lucky to be sharing this recipe with you all as it comes to us straight from Italy, from a real Italian Nonna (grandma). Marco, one of our engineers here at F&P, kindly sent message back to his home town in the hope that his Nonna would share with us her gnocchi recipe. [...]
I have been waiting in anticipation for sometime for another opportunity to try out my Pork Belly recipe, so what more perfect a place than a mid-winter dinner party!
The key to this relatively simple dish is
Growing up, I can remember Mum’s dinners often comprising of a side of coleslaw, rich and creamy from the condensed milk dressing. I can remember my sister and I offering to make it and sneaking cheese into it…I think we had just discovered that everything tasted better with cheese.

However, given the celebratory nature of our evening I figured that an apt ingredient upon which to build [...]
What better way to welcome your guests than with carefully assembled, delicate (and delicious) canapés. For our dinner party this month we served up three bite-sized treats to start the evening in the manner in which we intended to carry on.
Chicken soup is just plain good for the soul. I make the effort to use free range chicken where possible – I think the flavour is much deeper, and it shines through in this warming soup. I love clear soups; a nourishing broth to cure what ails you. This one is particularly tasty
Not being the biggest fan of winter, I often struggle with the thought of the cold winter months ahead. But the one part of winter I do love is sitting down to a piping hot bowl of soup that warms you up from the inside out!
What I love about food is that it can be adapted to suit taste, the seasons and even mood. So this is my take on Laksa, it may not be traditional but it is to my taste (and those lucky enough to have had it for lunch today!)
This post has been a long time coming. A year in fact. This time last year I had not long returned from a couple of weeks of design, food and culture in Northen Italy. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to travel over for Eurocucina, a huge kitchen design tradeshow held just [...]
