 Out of all four courses I made for my dinner party, this was the one that required the most work, both in prep time and cooking.  The result however, was more than worth it.  After a few courses of lighter, subtle flavours I wanted to do something that had a lot of strong, meaty flavours and this dish has it in spades.  I didn’t want to completely destroy everyone’s taste buds though, so I’ve added[…]

 I made this particular recipe from the Top Chef cookbook a couple of days ago but through work commitments I just haven’t had time to write it up properly.  It could also be that this made me so full I could barely move for three days… but I’m sticking to my work commitments story.  The sauce for these meatballs is incredible!  I simply could not stop eating it.  I realise a few people who have[…]

 I’m not entirely sure where the idea for this recipe came from.  I didn’t have anything listed for the Saturday in my menu so I had to come up with something there and then.  As it happened my new cookbook arrived “How to cook like a Top Chef” (one of my favourite shows).  In it there was a list of six ways to cook an egg, one of which was baked egg.  There wasn’t a[…]
