Crab tart

August 15th, 2011 · No Comments

Crab tart with garlic & tomato

August 1st, 2011 · No Comments

This is a variation on yet another recipe from Rick Stein’s current and excellent Spanish cookbook. Variation because gone is the tarragon (tarragone?) as we didn’t have any growing in the Victorian walled garden here at Yumblog Towers and ditto the carrot*.

Piedmontese peppers

August 1st, 2011 · 2 Comments

…and talking of Simon Hopkinson, this week’s episode of TGC featured two vegetable dishes which looked so simple and tasty we knew we had to try them out here at Yumblog Towers.
