Potato stuffed flatbread – Kachaloo bolani

February 12th, 2021 · No Comments

These stuffed flatbreads are fairly substantial and so are traditionally simply served with yoghurt and/or chutney. However it had been a long and punishing trek up the Hindu Kush and by the time we made camp we were famished, so we ate ours accompanied by the braised aubergines below.

February 7th, 2021 · 1 Comment

You’re very unlikely to have wholemeal self-raising flour unless, like us, you bought some by mistake. Worry not dear reader(s), the conventional white version will serve just as well.

Sauerkraut & bean stew – Slovenian Jota A short borderless drive south-west through Hungary we arrive in Slovenia, famished and in search of a hearty stew.

A celebration of Europe #22 – Romania

January 18th, 2021 · No Comments

Iahnie de fasole (Traditional bean stew) We had a long train journey today, travelling from Europe’s most westerly country to its most eastern. That said, the scenery was beautiful, the trains modern and punctual, and the buffet car well stocked with cheese toasties. I would take the description ‘stew’ with a pinch of salt (and […]

A celebration of Europe #14 – Italy

January 11th, 2021 · No Comments

Pizza Arguably an obvious choice. Undeniably a tasty one. There was mild panic when a trip to Sainsburys was met with an empty shelf where the Mozzarella should have been. Hopefully this was down to an oversight by the manager rather than a consequence of Brexit, but it is too dismal to speculate. On the […]

A celebration of Europe #4b – Croatia

December 31st, 2020 · No Comments

Croatian lepinja To go with our Škampi na buzaru we made these delicious flatbreads. Unlike many of their ilk, these are baked in the oven rather than cooked on a griddle and the resulting puffs of bread are most pleasing. It’s an easy bread to make, imagine the joy of filling them with lunchtime morsels, […]

Tuscan cannellini bean & cavolo nero soup

July 1st, 2020 · No Comments

If you are the impulsive sort who starts cooking a dish before fully reading the method, and then 10 minutes before your planned meal time come across the instruction ‘marinade for a fortnight’, then please read the recipe below thoroughly as it contains not only ‘simmer for two hours‘ but also ‘soak overnight‘. That said, […]

Lettuce risotto

May 29th, 2020 · No Comments

When a succession of veg boxes leaves you with a cumulative glut of lettuces, you come to the realisation that there is only so much you can eat in traditional salad form, and cooking seems to be limited to braised side dishes, either solo or avec pois. But worry not dear reader(s) for there is […]

Maalu Miris – Peppers stuffed with spicy potato in a coconut sauce

January 1st, 2018 · No Comments

Here’s wishing a ‘Happy New Year’ to all our lovely readers. In many ways 2017 wasn’t the best, but trust me 2018 is going to be great. The Tories will implode under the sheer weight of their incompetence, corruption and lies, Corbyn will march us joyfully towards a new Socialist dawn, Brexit will be cancelled, […]

Kale Mallung

July 1st, 2017 · 4 Comments

Blimey, looking at the date of the Fondue below, it would appear we haven’t written a post for a year and a half. I would be inclined to feel guilt were it not for the troubling matter of the past 18 months, during which you dear reader(s) seem to have become crazed and in our […]
