She passed this recipe onto me which over the … Continue reading Crab Claw and Prawn Paella

Here is the recipe for my ‘tarts’ spaghetti. My Aunt made this for me originally a few years ago and I loved it.

Kedgeree was always a favourite in my house when growing up for a weekend breakfast/brunch. My friends use to love it too when they came over to stay.

Beetroot works really well in this summer risotto; not only does it give an earthy flavour but also a beautiful red colour. I decided to use a rose wine with this rather than my usual white in risotto, just for added sweetness and colour. Risotto is such a simple dish to make but very tasty … Continue reading Beetroot Risotto with Pan Seared Scallops
