 Following one of my favourite Chef’s Richard Blais, I found a series of Burgers that he is currently showcasing on YouTube for Tasted.  One in particular was the Pigskin burger ahead of the Superbowl; It looked amazing!  See the video here. Sadly there isn’t a detailed recipe for this burger – the video gives us a good idea what it involves but there isn’t an exact method or list of ingredients.  So not only do I[…]

 In my last article I gave a basic stock list for someone starting up their own cocktail bar at home.  It’s pretty organic, if you like a certain kind of cocktail, you should buy the drinks for it!  Then, you can look for cocktails with similar ingredients and build up from there.  I’m (un)lucky in that I go crazy, buy a bunch of different drinks and start making cocktails without having to worry too much about[…]

 Ever since I started drinking alcohol, I’ve loved drinking cocktails.  I love all the different tastes you can get from cocktails despite the high alcohol content. I’ve never taken to beer, largely because it’s just too bitter for my taste. Whisky, bourbon, wine, cider and other spirits are no problem for me, but not beer.  Sadly with the exception of cider and wine they are all short drinks, so when drinking with friends I tend to go through 2[…]

 I have never been a big fan of couscous and nor is my wife, every dish we’ve tried has been too bland.  That was until I decided to give it another go at my local restaurant – The Bridge Brassiere.  I had their Ginger & Fennel Couscous with Venison sausages for lunch.  It was wonderful, and that’s not the usual word I use to describe dishes with couscous!  The ginger and fennel gave the couscous[…]
