 This weekend is going to be the first time since moving south from Aberdeen that I’ve had friends around for dinner – a bit of a poor effort considering I’ve been down here for over two years!  I’ve been given a slight challenge as the meal must be both lactose and gluten free and it has made me rethink a few of the dishes… I was going to have a wild rocket (Arugula) and goats[…]

 I’ve had a bit of a holiday this week, hence why this post is slightly later than usual.  But it’s also meant I’ve been able to do a bit more cooking and hopefully a bit of writing too…   Menu of the Week (20/11/2011 – 26/11/2011) Sunday Seafood Linguine with a Garlic Butter White Wine sauce Monday Out Tuesday Beef Rib with Celeriac mash and Red Wine Tarragon Sauce. Wednesday Traditional Scottish Stovies Thursday Goat[…]

 My work is sticking me in a hotel for a night so I won’t get the chance to cook anything on Monday or Tuesday.  But for the rest of the week I’ll be cooking a nice juicy steak that I bought from the local farm shop and doing a pulled pork dish – but minus the BBQ and buns!  I’ll also have to think of something to do at the weekend.   Menu of the[…]

 A little late this week but better late than never!  The beef brisket confit ended in disaster, so it won’t be making an apperance this week.  Sadly I won’t be doing much cooking this week as there will be a few nights out – it’s getting towards that time of year!   Menu of the Week (06/11/2011 – 12/11/2011) Sunday Homemade Sweet & Sour Pork (Phoebe) Monday Steamed Minced Pork with Rice (Phoebe) Tuesday Pan[…]

 I’m publishing this earlier this week as I will be out on a trip tomorrow.  I had intended to try a Beef Cheek Confit but sadly my local butcher was only able to get it on special order, so that one will have to wait.  Instead I’m doing a Beef Brisket Confit, Pappardelle Bolognese and tonight I will be doing a Rack of Lamb with Polenta.   Menu of the week 30/10/2011 – 05/11/2011 Sunday[…]

 I wasn’t feeling hugely creative this week but I tried something new today so at least I did something!  I’m keeping it nice and simple with an Irish Stew and Chorizo Pasta through the week.  I might finally get to do my Pappardelle Bolognese this weekend if my local supermarket has any beef shin.   Menu of the Week (23/10/2011 – 29/10/2011) Sunday Poached Smoked Haddock & Eggs with Purple Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce Monday[…]

 It’s my wife’s birthday night this week (her actual birthday isn’t until next week) and we will be heading to the Chef’s Table at “The Muset by Ronnie” in Clifton, Bristol.  I think I’m looking forward to it more than her!  It will be a 6 course meal and the head chef will be deciding the menu for us.  All I need to do is bring the wine and he will cook something to go[…]

 This week I’m going to be trying out some new dishes that I haven’t really cooked before.  The Meatballs from last week got pushed into today due to me having to work yesterday and the unexpected length of time it takes to cook it.  I’ll be doing a Ceviche of Squid with Salmon and Lemon Sole – I’ve been wanting to do this for quite awhile now but just never found the time to do[…]

 This week I’ll be trying out a few dishes based on recipes from the new cookbook I recently bought “How to cook like a Top Chef”. My wife (Phoebe) will be cooking on Wednesday and Thursday this week so those are her dishes.  If you have a particular interest in any of the dishes this week, leave a comment and I will try to cover it!

 I’m going to start posting up the weekly menu that me and the wife do before our weekly shop.  The main reason we do this is so we know exactly what to buy and it stops us overspending.  It also stops me from missing half the ingredients I need for the days that I’m cooking, however I still miss the odd one and I sometimes can’t think what to cook until I see it in the shop. […]
