Five things to look for when choosing the perfect bottle of wine
The Quickest Lunch Ever
There is still an element of snobbery with wine drinkers who ‘think’ they are all aficionados in viticulture, how boring they are if they are sat next to you at dinner!
So I can understand why some people feel intimidated when faced with aisle upon aisle of wines in a supermarket
It's courgette time again
If there’s very little in your fridge, but you can open a cupboard and find a can of each tuna and cannellini beans, add to that half an onion, it’s enough to make yourself a delicious and nutritious lunch.
Come and see us at Webbs 'Meet and Eat' Event 10th June
I’ve only planted three courgette plants this year, I think the speed they grow they could easily take over the world.
Granny's Welsh Cakes
We are really excited to be a part of Webbs up and coming 'Meet & Eat' event with Michelin-starred Chef Brad Carter (Carters of Moseley in Birmingham), local food heroes Droitwich Salt and Buxton Butchers who will be bringing a sensational cookery masterclass and food experience.
SIRT Granola recipe
There are so many Welsh cakes recipes, but I could never deviate from Granny's recipe, as they are loved by all the family just the way they are.
Welsh cakes are cooked on a bakestone, of which I have two. The very best, my brother made for me years ago, it’s cast iron, very heavy but makes the most delicious Welsh cakes. The other I bought at a local cook’s shop, it’s made of a much lighter metal and is well travelled...so yet again was part of my check in allowance!
As many of our followers know, I love the Sirtfood diet. I don't use it for weight loss, but you could do. I use this approach because of how the foods make me feel - healthy and full of energy.
I make up a batch of SIRT granola every couple of weeks, just by adding yogurt and some berries it makes a very quick and easy breakfast.
Curry Night with one of Madhur Jaffrey's Curries, Vegetarian Green Lentil Curry with Kale
When I was young...oh my word, (now I sound like my mother!) Pomegranates were the start of Christmas. They came into Mrs May’s fruit and vegetable shop at the beginning of December and I would be so excited, conjuring up all kinds of stories in my mind as to where these exotic fruits came from. Because of their colour and looking unlike any other fruit I’d seen, they had to come from the ‘Far East’, countries of richness, spices and magic carpets.
DHAL WITH BUTTER AND GINGER RECIPE
Here's a recipe from Madhur Jeffray that I recently cooked for the family for curry night. This recipe serves 4 people.
I LOVE TOMATOES!
I found this recipe in a magazine and loved it, although I did cut back on the amount of butter, that’s just personal choice.
RECIPE – HOT AND SOUR NOODLE SOUP
It’s tomato time again at Sant Elia, and that means a freezer full of passata to take me through the winter and well into the Spring of 2018.
I love fresh, healthy tasting meals, and this ticks all the boxes.
