Terroni & Sons, 138-140 Clerkenwell Road – RIP

October 30th, 2007 · 35 Comments

So farewell then, Luigi Terroni & Sons, one of the best Italian delicatessens in London. Where the staff were friendly and knowledgable and you could buy a vast array of tasty foods. Cooked meats, cheese, bread, cakes, wine and pasta of all imaginable shapes and sizes. Now sadly ceased trading for reasons not explained, although […]

Stilton and Cider Soup with Goat’s Cheese Toasts

October 28th, 2007 · No Comments

If your local shop permits I advise a decent cider for this recipe – so put that White Lightning back on the park bench and try something tasty like this Henney’s Frome Valley Dry Cider.

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 […]

‘Falafel’ Burger

October 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

If you like falafel and you like burgers, you’ll love this ‘falafel’ burger. Although perhaps as it is technically neither a falafel nor a burger it should be written ‘Falafel’ ‘Burger’ or perhaps ‘Falafel’ (Burger) or even “{‘Falafel’ [‘Burger’]}!”. 2 ‘falafel’ burgers relax on a plate – not particularly photogenic, but very tasty.

Spinach and Mushroom Fusilli

October 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

It’s nice to have a hobby, and one of ours is drinking strong Belgian beer. The Dovetail in Clerkenwell is a superb bar which claims to stock 101 different beers and who are we to question them. This is where we found ourselves last Friday evening for the traditional post-work, weekend-welcoming lager binge.

Garlic Soup

October 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments

Try to get hold of large, plump garlic for this recipe. I always buy mine from market stalls which tend to sell bags of six for a quid. These are far superior to the over-priced, dry, miserable, mean-spirited, walnut-sized, dull 25 watt bulbs they sell in supermarkets.

Hot Stuffed Avocado

October 20th, 2007 · 2 Comments

It has to be said that the avocado is one of my favourite vegetables (sorry fruit), so much so that whenever asked to supply a username for a website, I invariably type in RicardoAvocado. However, I had never cooked one having always assumed that it would turn instantly to an oily green liquid as appetising […]

Quick Light Wholemeal Loaf

October 13th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Obviously what with the world as we know it ending in 2012 and all that, it could be argued that time is too precious to be squandered on baking bread. However, life and food are about quality not quantity, and besides as the title says, this is a ‘quick’ light wholemeal loaf.

Carrot Soup with Ginger & Honey

October 10th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Being the middle-class ponces we are, it is only natural that we should take delivery of an Abel & Cole organic vegetable box once a week. Carrots have featured fairly heavily of late and as a result we have developed quite a backlog of the things.
