Carrot and Chickpea Salad with Pomegranate Molasses

I know it’s been a while, so I figured it would be a good time to post some new recipes. I’m trying to kickstart myself into action by participating in Elle Luna’s 100 day project. I’m going to try and post a recipe every day for a century of days. In keeping with the project, […]

duck soup with barley

Duck Soup with Barley, Sweet Potato and Kale

  As the seasons change and the nights draw in I don’t get sad for the loss of the heat of summer. I will certainly miss the range of fresh ingredients on offer, but that is more than offset by the ability to use heat again in the kitchen without battling with my air conditioning. […]

Tomato Stew with Cranberry Beans and Chard

Tomato Stew with Cranberry Beans and Chard

This tomato stew cries out for a cool night. It’s a rich, rustic mêlée of beans, tomatoes and chard brought together and given an amazing freshness thanks to its last-moment addition of fresh herbs and vinegar. With a simple toasted rye bread smeared thick with crème frâiche its the sort of thing that will warm […]

Romanesco Broccoli and Pasta Bake with a Carrot and Sorrel Salad

Romanesco Broccoli and Pasta Bake with a Carrot and Sorrel Salad

  There are some dishes are best eaten at home. It’s not that they are bad, far from it. They are just such cosy meals that they deserve to be eaten on the couch in front of great (or wonderfully awful) TV. This meal of parmesan crusted pasta and Romanesco Broccoli is one of those […]

Mackerel and Oatmeal, beets and carrots

Oatmeal crusted Mackerel with Beets and Carrots

I’ve been waiting patiently for a nice piece of mackerel to show up all summer. And so at market this week I was extraordinarily happy when I saw a fillet sitting on ice, waiting for me. It is without doubt my favourite fish and I think one much underrated. Mackerel is a great oily fish, […]

lamb sliders with lambsquarters

Lamb Sliders with Lambsquarters; Carrot and Beet Salad

It’s hot today; we’re officially four days into summer and it’s 90℉ in the city (that’s 32℃ for those from the old country). When it gets hot and sweaty like this the last thing I want to do is spend a long time over the stove. I want food that is quick to prepare, flavourful but not […]

Palak Paneer, Fried Carrots, Coconut Rice

Palak Paneer, Spicy Carrots, Coconut Rice

I love living in New York but it’s hard to find a good curry here. Back in London where I’m from curry is as solid and commonplace as say good pizza or Italian food is in the city. Palak Paneer —a spinach and cheese curry is one of my favourites. Rich and spicy, the spinach […]

pickled carrots salad with chickpeas and chicken

Pickled Carrots, Spiced Chickpeas, Ginger Chicken

After a couple of carb-loaded meals (pasta and a pie), I think it’s time to redress the balance with a nice clean salad. I’d been inspired by a carrot salad I’d seen over at the ever-delicious 101 Cookbooks, and I wanted to try something along those lines. I decided to compose a salad with three […]

Unconventional Irish Stew

Irish Stew and Soda Bread; an unconventional take

Sunday was St. Patrick’s day, and what better way to celebrate than with Irish Stew?  A better way is to celebrate with Irish stew and a nice tangy piece of soda bread. I went to the market with this in mind, and picked up some great lamb neck in my weekly haul so I could put […]
