Potted Mackerel

December 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

Take one Guardian Weekend magazine and one quandary about what to feed Archaeologist T. Realise that multiple small dishes that can be dipped into at a fixed pace are just the thing. Go to the market and buy fish. The market being a fish stall on Roman Road just round the corner, these fish were […]

November 10th, 2009 · No Comments

Our new chums at Abel & Cole have been sending us more delicious treats to cook, scoff and review. This week our stash included organic Scottish Salmon which if you follow that link you will find out live in remote and spacious cages off the coast of the Orkneys. It goes on to report that […]

Café Delic Tuna Salad

November 1st, 2009 · No Comments

Was it only a week ago that the yumbloggers were sitting in 35ºC of Madrid heat on the terraza outside the Café Delic eating lunch and drinking chilled glasses of refreshing Mahou Classic? (Stop it, you’re beginning to sound like a middle class wanker – Ed) Ah yes, Blogger-D had a simple roll generously filled […]

Frittelle di Spaghetti

September 20th, 2009 · No Comments

Obviously the most productive thing you can do with an egg is lob it into the fat one-eyed face of <nazi cunt>Nick Griffin</nazi cunt>. However, if for some reason he isn’t goose-stepping through your neighbourhood you could do a lot worse than use it to make these delicious and comforting spaghetti fritters.

Tuna & Red Pepper Empanada

May 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

I came across this recipe in last month’s Wa’ro magazine and it looked so tasty I had to give it a try. It also gave me the opportunity to photograph it alongside this stylishly knackered old fork which I bought recently in a charity shop purely for use as a prop. Everybody’s doing it – […]

Linguini with Prawns and Roasted Almonds

May 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

‘I can’t be in love if it’s plastic to live on my own just seems tragic but we’ll raise our swords high when our day comes you thought it was gold but it was bronze so, get here in time when our day comes you thought it was gold but it was bronze’ If this […]

Cod with Mixed Peas in Cider

April 9th, 2009 · No Comments

We would like to reassure readers that despite selling 20% of yumblog to Coca-Cola for a cool £30m, we are adamant that our ideals* and pseudo-eco-friendly sentiments will be in no way compromised. Yumblog will still be cynically overpriced, we will continue to put patronising and twee drivel in a ‘handwritten’ font on all our […]

Smoked Mackerel Pâté

March 22nd, 2009 · 2 Comments

This is an easy-to-make, rich-and-tasty treat which merits a place alongside the holy trinity of party dips – houmus, taramasalata and guacamole.

Paccheri with Anchovies, Capers, Olives (& Raisins)

March 17th, 2009 · 7 Comments

I came across this recipe in Saturday’s Telegraph magazine (not mine you understand). I was drawn to it because not only does it include a novelty pasta and three favoured salty ingredients (anchovies, olives and capers) but it also bizarrely contains a smattering of raisins. Would this be (as Gregg and John often say) one […]

Fisherman’s Soup with Aioli Toast

January 28th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I came across this Mitch Tonks recipe on the excellent BBC ‘Get Cooking‘ website. If this dish is anything to go by, fishermen eat exceedingly well.

Fish Fingers

January 6th, 2009 · 1 Comment

OK, so it looks as if this particular fish had its fingers variously crushed in a freak piscine industrial accident, but they are tasty nevertheless. Tastier than Cap’n Birdseye’s even.

Bass Wrapped in Lettuce

January 5th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Following a traditional Christmas in Suffolk (Turkey or Quorn roast with all the trimmings, a disappointing episode of Doctor Who and Israel bombing Palestine, etc) we had a second, less traditional Christmas dinner a few days later in Berlin (Some photos here). This lettuce-wrapped bass was the main attraction, served alongside an indulgent Gratin Dauphinois […]

Cheesy Baked Cod with Avocado

December 16th, 2008 · No Comments

A delicate piece of cod smothered with cream and cheddar and then baked along with avocado – now this is a retro dish the great and terrifying Fanny would be proud of.

Squid with Lentils and Preserved Lemon

September 13th, 2008 · 3 Comments

A Squid (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) is a very sensitive magnetometer used to measure extremely small magnetic fields and is based on a superconducting loop containing Josephson junctions. Less well known, it is also a tasty fishy treat which it turns out, goes very well with lentils. “If animal trapped call 410-844-6286” — Baltimore, traditional.

Parmesan Custards with Anchovy Toasts

July 28th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Blogger-D was lucky enough to have a free work jolly to Le Café Anglais last Christmas and said the food was some of the best she’d ever tasted. Blogger-R unfortunately has yet to be offered such a generous perk and so has had to content himself with making this – Rowley Leigh’s ‘signature’ dish of […]

Seared Squid with Roasted Pepper Sauce

May 17th, 2008 · 2 Comments

There were scenes of mild peril when I got my squid tubes home and discovered they were not, as I had assumed, empty, but in fact contained tentacles and all sorts of other body parts. Blogger-D had to step in and perform some deft and discrete fishmongery to remove the offending bits of cephalopod. Pathetic […]

Pan Fried Salmon with Avocado Remoulade

May 6th, 2008 · No Comments

I got this recipe from Simply Recipes – an excellent foodblog by Elise Bauer. Other essential reading on the web this week was this article on Guardian Unlimited, which in turn leads to the very informative and equally disturbing ‘Wolf at the Door‘ website by Paul Thompson. Enjoy avocados while you can and don’t say […]

Coconut Fish Curry (Meen Molee)

March 4th, 2008 · No Comments

This recipe (as well as the three side dishes posted below) were in the current issue of the Observer Food Monthly. Looks good in the photograph doesn’t it? A succulent pan-fried fillet of bass sitting on a vibrant dish of coconut curry and scattered with various decorative bits of shrubbery not mentioned in the list […]

Pesto Calamari with Steamed Vegetables

February 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’ve made two exciting discoveries recently. One is the existance of a Waitrose only ten minutes walk from where I work, and the other is the cheapness of calamari. The two are connected as the former sells the latter. In fact this Waitrose is off Whitecross Street which has an excellent food market … a […]

Plaice wrapped vegetables with Salsa Verde

February 25th, 2008 · No Comments

I intended to use sole for this recipe but when I saw the £26 a kilo price tag I nearly bolted in panic. Fortunately my fellow blogger calmed me down, took control of the situation and purchased two splendid (and considerably cheaper) fillets of plaice instead.

Teriyaki Salmon

February 14th, 2008 · 3 Comments

For this recipe you’ll have to invest in a bottle of Mirin which after extensive research, I discover to be a sweet alcoholic seasoning made from rice and yeast. You’ll also be needing some salmon – a member of the Salmonidae family of fishes, distinguished by its pale pink flesh and popular among humans. Salmon […]

Calamari with Baked Beans

February 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

This is a Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe with a few minor tweaks. Out with the smoked paprika because we don’t have any, and in with a little honey for sweetness. Half a glass of Sherry is required so we had to go out and buy some specially. We opted for Tudor Rose ‘We can’t legally call […]

Tuna & Tomato Empanadillas

January 27th, 2008 · 3 Comments

I had the yen to make some Cornish pasties, but not having all the necessary ingredients and not wanting to brave the ugly madness that is Bethnal Green on a Saturday afternoon to get them, I made these instead.

Like every middle-class metropolitan professional couple we lead such busy lives these days. Monday night we attend our Tibetan singing bowl music workshop, Tuesday is Pranic Crystal Healing, Wednesday – practical Feng Shui, Thursday night is of course Aura Therapy night and Friday is ‘The Power of the Pyramids’ – term 2.

If like me two weeks ago, you have never tasted carp and you think it would be interesting to give it a go, my advice to you is please don’t bother. Along with voting Tory, ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and felching, it is an experience best avoided. There is a reason why carp is an […]

Smoked Haddock Chowder

October 24th, 2007 · No Comments

Flippin’ eck Tucker, one of the shops on the High Street is selling seven corn-on-the -cob for a pound and that is a bloomin’ bargain. Of course, sweetcorn is delicious eaten just as it comes, boiled or barbecued and simply accompanied with a knob of slowly melting butter, however tonight we decided upon this smoked […]

Fish @ Whitstable

September 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

Giddy with excitement from rumours that there might be a glimpse of sunshine in the east, we drove down to the North Kent coast for a spot of camping. Cursory research led us to ‘Seaview Holiday Park’ in a small town called Swalecliffe – midway between Whitstable and Herne Bay.
