Cold grape and pomegranate crumble

I know it looks like I am just working the other way round to the rest of the world, and I feel like so. While everybody is trying to fight the cold weather and thinking about thick hot gravy and turkey and all the trimmings, and getting all ready for Christmas, I am trying to…


Caramelized pears with serrano ham

Hi!! I’m back with a very easy recipe but absolutely stunning too. One of those starters to make on the go, takes just 5 minutes, but your guests will love it, and you’ll receive loads of compliments for it. It is based in a very typical Spanish summer dish: “Melon con jamon” (melon with serrano…

Homemade ravioloni filled with aubergine, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes, and with funghi porcini sauce

Well, I know that maybe the title is a bit too long, that you probably have to breathe twice in between, and so, but, if I spent hours making these delicious ravioloni, drying the tomatoes (skip this! just buy sundried tomatoes in olive oil), mixing, kneading and stretching the homemade pasta dough, filling it, boiling…


Tagliatelle with fake bolognaise and cappers

This fake bolognaise recipe came up because my daughter refused to eat veggies. She describes herself as a bolognaise expert, and states it’s her favourite meal, so she can’t be tricked when it comes to bolognaise… So what do you think I did? Exactly. I woke up on a Sunday and decided it was the…
