Roasted sweet potato and carrot soup

October 22nd, 2013 · No Comments

I’m always reluctant to write up a recipe for soup as it seems far too simple to warrant a post and possibly risks insulting your no doubt exemplary culinary skills dear reader(s). After all, your average soup is usually just a few veg zhuzhed up in olive oil or butter, simmered for 20 mins in […]

Filoncino

October 21st, 2013 · No Comments

… or an Italian version of a baguette. Not to be confused with the French Stick – the English version of the baguette which is 24 inches of pale bendy disappointment and about as authentic as Peckham Spring Water. Filoncino

Authentic(ish) warm German potato salad

September 30th, 2013 · No Comments

The (ish) is there because to be properly Deutsche this should of course contain in some part or many a piggy porcine element, and if our experience of eating out in Berlin is anything to go by, a solitary pineapple chunk. Well you know what potato salad looks like, and it doesn’t photograph pretty, so […]

Roasted pepper pasta sauce

August 11th, 2013 · No Comments

The day started with two itinerant cows and ended with a trip back in time to 1978. In between there was a misfuelling which led to three spontaneous guests for dinner. We served them pasta with this simple and deceptively delicious roasted pepper sauce. Roasted pepper pasta sauce

Roasted tomato vinaigrette

July 31st, 2013 · No Comments

…not to be confused with a Vinegaroon which is an ugly and menacing fucker you definitely wouldn’t want to share the dinner table with. If you are short of time AND have been lucky enough to get hold of some juicy ripe flavoursome tomatoes (i.e. you live outside the UK) you can skip the whole […]

Flat bread

July 30th, 2013 · No Comments

There are as many varieties of flat breads as there are varieties of Heinz products, or indeed bi-pedal humanoid aliens living amongst us – 57*. I can’t vouch for all of them, but this particular variant is tried, tested, easy to make, and very tasty. We laced ours with cumin although you could of course […]

Griddled courgette salad with tasty breadcrumbs

May 31st, 2013 · No Comments

Yumblog Cottage is a haven of sunlit space, children’s laughter, crisp white linen, […]

Borlotti beans & savoy cabbage with rosemary breadcrumbs

March 7th, 2013 · No Comments

Look, everyone I have an iPad Mini. In fact as I write this I’m on the morming commute steaming through the Calder Valley aboard the Northern Rail Executive Express. For those of you not in the know, the Northern Rail Executive Express is a sleek luxuriously upholstered silver bullet from the future which flashes silently […]

Chocolatey syrupy cornflake cakes

February 3rd, 2013 · No Comments

The plan was to make these with yumblog junior as part of a constructive and educational day of middle class parent/toddler fun. Despite initial enthusiasm and impatient requests of ‘cam i make cakes now?’, once the ingredients were assembled and all sharp objects removed from easy reach, the sprog decided she had more important things […]

Chestnut stuffing

January 10th, 2013 · No Comments

I know, it’s the middle of January so it’s unlikely any of you lot (dear readers) are going to want to digest anything referring back to Christmas, Christmas dinner or any of its associated trimmings. But trust me, in 344 days, 2 hours, 37 minutes and 55 seconds (at time of writing) you’ll be desperately […]

Vegetarian gravy

December 31st, 2012 · 1 Comment

If you don’t have access to the rendered fatty juices which have oozed from the roasting flesh of a recently slaughtered animal, making a decent gravy can be quite a challenge. A vegetarian gravy requires time and attention to build up a sufficient depth of flavour, so I suggest you make this in advance and/or […]
