A new recipe out every fortnight

It’s not really been the winter for comfort food, but the recent cold snap had me all keen for some slow cooked deliciousness, a big fire and good company - plus a nice glass of red! So out went the invitations and voilà, braised shanks in red wine were on the menu.

Life on the farm continues from one season to the next, with us waving goodbye to the longest and hottest summer I can remember.  For those who are climate change deniers it was apparently hotter in 1910,  but happily I wasn't there to swelter on that occasion. This h...

These school holidays have flown by.  We've had a lot happening with visitors, lamb marking, Mungery picnic races and a whirlwind of catch ups and get togethers.  Which I've totally loved, mainly because (drought aside) Spring is just the most glorious time on the fa...

The perfect winter pre-dinner snack with drinks for when you are having friends around. You can cut back on the harissa if you like and use a teaspoon of curry powder in its place if you're worried about the kick being too powerful. Its a great party food for kids as w...

Sometimes the shortcut is the not just easier way, its the best option. That's what I think anyway when it comes to making a curry from scratch. Take it from me, leave it to the professionals! Recently I discovered "Curry Traders" An award winn...

Is it Ragout or Ragu?  They are pronounced the same (ra-GOO), but they’re different. Ragouts are more like a slow braise using large pieces of meat, like a stew. 

A ragu is typically made with minced meat such as you find in a Bolognese sauce.

I love both rago...
