Pork Cooked In Milk 

I’m not quite sure what appealed to me about this recipe in The River Cafe Cookbook which we are exploring at the moment for The Cookbook Guru.  Maybe it was the unusual method of cooking the meat in milk, or perhaps it was the combination of sage and lemon with a slow cooked pork that…

The Versatility of Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini fritters are a favourite in our house. They often don’t make it far beyond the pan before being snacked on with a dash of sweet chilli sauce. So the good news is that when it comes to making them there is no strict recipe that I follow, although the fundamentals remain the same.  I’ve…

A Bundle of Greens

Recently I inherited an old copy of Home Beautiful magazine.  It’s a publication I’m always more than happy to have a browse through to get some new idea’s for home decoration, but also for foodie inspiration.    When I saw this idea in a special food lift out I instantly grabbed it as something that…

Others will set up on a regular street corner and serve their specialty dish for the locals to come to them.  For us this…
