 Last year, I decided to forgo the usual Christmas Turkey and went with Goose.  I find I have so many Christmas dinners or lunches that by the time I get to doing my own I’m thoroughly sick of turkey.  Aside from that, I’ve never found turkey to be that nice for roasting, it’s dry and usually fairly tasteless.  Cooked properly, it can be nice but that’s rarely the case.  It’s usually dry turkey, overcooked sprouts and boiled[…]

 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[…]

 I love cooking a good steak.  It’s quick and easy but so many seem to get it wrong?  Even restaurants sometimes struggle to get the right level of “done-ness” but I think there are a few key things people miss out when cooking a steak. First of all, you need some good quality meat – it’s a steak, don’t go buying the supermarket value meat that needs to be beaten to death (a second time)[…]

 Meatloaf is one of those things that I just kept hearing about over the years, mostly from all those America TV shows and movies.  After hearing so much about it and how much the Americans seem to love it, I had to give it a try.  I’ve never had any meatloaf other than my own, which is based on a number of recipes and some fine tuning to my own tastes, so I’m not entirely[…]
