I love my salad; however it needs to be made in a certain way.  When I am putting together a salad I have to see a mix of colour, texture and flavours, otherwise it’s just me eating boring leaves.  I can’t seem to enjoy a plain salad in the same way.  It’s nice to make...

Early this year we went for a short break to Lake Como to visit my younger cousins.  For dinner that evening I was made “Pasta Aglio e olio”, but with a puttanesca twist.  The ingredients were all homegrown by my uncle (even the oil was made by my uncle).  Enough to sa...

One evening, being someone that doesn’t like to plan what I want to eat in advance, I reached for the butternut squash to make the ‘same old’ soup.  I was not convinced at all that this is really what I fancied on this particular evening, especially after a miserable d...

A friend of mine gave me the idea for this recipe.  He cooked it one evening for me a few years back and recently attempted to recreate it with bits an pieces I had in my fridge to have for dinner during my ‘healthy week’.  I love the texture and flavour of this dish,...

Just hours after stepping off the plane somewhere hot, by the water, I will always order a nice plate of fresh pasta with clams. Being someone that is more spontaneous when cooking as opposed to planning (unless its a big occasion) fresh ingredients are not always to h...
