Potato Gratin has always been a favourite of mine, but Dauphinoise both sounds sexier, and is easier to cook. I was looking for a simple & complimentary accompaniment to a venison dish, and the addition of fennel to this classic gives it an extra earthy layer without compromising the simplicity of the dish.

Zucchini Noodles

If you’re a big zucchini fan like me, then you’ll have been enjoying the abundance of them around at the moment. I’ve been heading down to my local farmers market to pick up beautiful fresh ones of varying shapes, sizes and colour. Zucchinis are amazingly versatile and can be added to a wide ranges of meals [...]

Easy Smoked BBQ Brisket

This recipe came from a recent obsession with Southern US barbecue. I’ve written before about the pseudo meat-monks that will religiously tend a fire from dawn till dusk.

Duck with roasted grape & parsnip

I’m really enjoying focusing on using less ingredients in my cooking at the moment, and really trying to do them justice. This dish is one of those experiments: 3 distinct flavours, with the one aromatic herb to link them together.

But we found one thing we can agree on. Paul mentioned his native city Chicago’s [...]

Steak with sauce Bourdelaise

I’ve probably mentioned before about my love for a well-cooked steak. My parents used it as bribery when I was young. I’d be a little angel for days before a BBQ in anticipation of eating steak. Then, on the day, I’d watch it get marinated (this was the late 80s to early 90s)
