    Tempeh Tempeh With two vegan sons at home it has been imperative that I extend my repertoire of plant-based dishes. Happily, I recently discovered tempeh – a protein rich product of Indonesian origin made from compressed and fermented soya beans. It is both tasty and easy to cook (win win) and has been a terrific substitute to fish or meat...

    My book group are convening this evening and it is my turn to host which means I have to provide supper. We have been meeting up for over 7 years now and experience has taught us that it is best to keep things simple and select dishes that can be prepared in advance. To that end I'm going to serve...

    Food and Wine Matching - July 2020

    In clement weather I'm disinclined to spend too much time faffing around in the kitchen. I like simple meals made from fresh ingredients that can be enjoyed outdoors. A case in point are the two salads depicted. The origins of both are lost to me save that I know I can't claim any credit for them. The inspired combination of...

    I have previously praised Rukmini Iyer's 'The Green Roasting Tin' as an excellent source of innovative vegan and vegetarian recipes that are (mostly) easy to prepare. However, with both my copies in self isolation at my sons' seats of learning I've had to wing it during lockdown with best guesses at ingredients and quantities for some of my favourites. One...

    Salad Days   I have long been of the opinion that many of the best repasts are also the simplest. Don't get me wrong - I love the theatre of a grand restaurant with a hierarchy of sommeliers and a brigade of waiters but those are for high days and important anniversaries and not the everyday. I've always been enamoured...

    As my springtime travel plans have disappeared in a puff of Covid 19, and I'm going to spending a lot more time with my family, I am truly grateful for television streaming services. If one can't actually voyage and experience different cultures and cuisines in person then the next best thing is watching someone else do it. My 'go to...

    Food and Wine Matching - March 2020

    In common with many, our household is trying to eat less meat these days and I have found myself cooking and consuming more mushrooms in search of a satisfying savoury umami hit this winter. One dish in my repertoire that I have revived to good effect is mushroom risotto. Risottos were a staple of my younger years being both cheap...
