    Roasted Potato Gnocchi with Asparagus Almond Spread and Hazelnuts Our younger son is back home, after 18 months working and travelling in Australasia and South-East Asia, which is a great pleasure for us. He is vegan, which means that we have to adjust our culinary repertoire accordingly. As British asparagus is in season, and we […]

    Lamb Boulangère As the days lengthen and crocuses start to appear and blossom adorns the trees, I take solace in the fact that the season is turning and, let's face it, things are going to improve. One of my favourite traditional French recipes is lamb boulangère. This harks back to the days when people heading […]

    Shakshuka Shakshuka is a restorative North African dish believed to be of Tunisian origin. It is quite quickly and easily prepared and makes for a tasty lunch or light supper dish. There are numerous different twists one can deploy in its preparation so I have deliberately not looked for a recipe online as I didn’t […]

    Kefir-ly Cultivated Last Summer, traversing la belle France on holiday, we stayed the night with our old friends Fred and Laurence Filliatreau in their delightful home, set amongst vines, at Château Fouquet, in the hamlet of Brèze, in the Loire valley. It was great to have our first familial get together since the onset of […]

    Seasonal Snackage Package and Festive Libations In the run up to Christmas we always invite a few friends and neighbours round for drinks. Experience has taught us that people like a definite cut off time and it is best to avoid trying to provide a fully catered meal. That said, a few canapés or snacks […]

    Chicken with Chorizo, Chillis, Onions, Peppers and Garlic with Rice I've come across a few recipes that are very similar to this, but I devised this version years ago and I like it because there is very little to weigh or measure. Most recently, I cooked it for my long-standing, 5 strong book group and […]

    Scallop and King Prawn Ramen with Vegetables and Rice Noodles This recipe evolved during the pandemic when I was looking for food that was healthy, easy to prepare and versatile. You can switch the scallops and prawns for diced tuna, chicken or tofu and get an equally satisfying outcome. It does come pretty close to […]

    Greasy Beans For as far back as I can remember I have enjoyed travelling in France. A significant part of that pleasure has been in partaking of the rich variety of food and wine available and the Gallic passion for cooking food that is both seasonal and locally sourced. There are some quite vocal people […]

    Several Summer Salads While I am not known for being overly-enthusiastic about salads, after much recent nutritional advice from well-informed observers, such as Chris van Tulleken and Tim Spector, highlighting the dangers of consuming too much overly-processed food, they are definitely going to be served more frequently chez Yapp in the future. It has taken […]

    Lamb steaks with New Potatoes and Pea Shoot and Mint Salad. Lamb is a perfect summer meat, as it's light and flavourful. New potatoes are in season right now, and they're an ideal accompaniment. They're a bit more delicate than regular potatoes, so they won't overpower the meat. The pea shoots and mint add a […]
