SIMPLE SWEETCORN FRITTERS


It’s Sunday evening; you can barely be bothered to get off the sofa let alone leave the house to visit the local supermarket. But you want a delicious snack and just can’t justify ordering another takeaway so these are the perfect quickie, snack dinner that can make even the most basic cook look like a whizz…

ROASTED TOMATO AND RED PEPPER SOUP


For over a decade, the red pepper was my enemy. My sister’s allergic, my mother, doesn’t like the taste and I just never thought to buy them. It wasn’t a featured vegetable in my upbringing. Anyway in a light bulb moment at the supermarket, I picked up a pack, they were cheap and decided to commit to…

JEW-ISH HOT DOG SAUSAGE ROLLS


Happy new year one and all. Whilst many start a new year with the typical healthy resolution, it doesn’t mean there isn’t room for some naughty food and lets face it Hot Dogs are the ultimate comfort food. Yes, you can shove them in a roll, but why not put them in puff pastry and…

TURKEY APPLE HASH -LEFTOVER CHRISTMAS DINNER


I might be Jew-ish, but I LOVE Christmas. The songs, spending time with my family, overeating and celebrating this festival that isn’t even part of my religion. But who cares it makes me happy and I look forward to this time of year from the moment its over. So as the glorious Christmas day comes to…

HILARY’S -SPELT FLOUR GOATS CHEESE LAVENDER PANCAKES


I have to thank the wonderful Hilary Doyle for this recipe, which she concocted whilst on our road trip in Prince Edward County, a very picturesque part of Ontario Canada. Whilst staying in a house in Picton, (that gifted me a bat in my bedroom!!!) Hilary against all kitchen odds in a terribly laid out…

QUICK THAI GREEN CURRY COURGETTE SOUP


I once had a soup business at work as a sideline. It would seem that my soups were cheaper, tastier and healthier  than crappy sandwiches the local area offered. Making full bodied tasting soups runs in my family as, my mum, sister, grandma have for many years created soups every which way and served up at a family…

LEEK POTATO COURGETTE & PARSLEY SOUP


I love making soups, especially when you can add a simple twist to a classic. I added these extra ingredients since they were in desperate need of being used up. This is really a throw all into one pot experience, with very little chopping required and I think the courgette adds that extra smoothness, while the…

MY JEW-ISH TRIPLE CHEESE AND SPRING ONION SCONES


If you love cheese and you love scones then guess what, you will love this recipe. Even though I have used Cheddar and Red Leicester you can use other hard cheeses, just think of cheese that offer contrasting flavours. Now I helped prepare these initially with my friend for a brunch, and I remade them…

MY JEW-ISH SESAME ROASTED KALE WITH BLOOMS BEEF SALAMI


I love kale. It ones of the vegetables I look forward coming into season when the autumn approaches. It is a big bold leafy veg, that not only is incredibly good for you, full of vitamins, but it can also take on strong flavors like in this recipe. I served this as a side to a roast chicken…

BUTTERNUT SQUASH, CARROT AND KAFFIR LIME SOUP


I served this soup to a group of unsuspecting friend for a Friday night dinner a couple of weeks back, and one of them asked for the recipe so thanks to Olivia here it is. The joy of this soup is it is incredibly easy to prepare and offers a little Asian twist in the…

MY JEW-ISH SUPER QUICK WILD GARLIC AND FETA SPREAD


It’s a warm summers day and having just finished a delicious Shabbat lunch at friends, we went for a walk through some open spaces. As we entered the wooded part, my friend said ‘Oh Smell that? Its wild garlic, growing in abundance’. And she wasn’t wrong, the whole area was just overgrown in this amazing…
