Whiskey for Pudding

Whiskey for Pudding   Somewhere between a trifle, a posset and an alcoholic’s dream, this came about after I was thinking about taking the British love of boozy puddings as far as I could – so I did.   Take one normal sized Madeira slab cake, remove the crusts and dice the cake into 1-1.5cm […]

Super Melty Cheese

Super Melty Cheese

Super melty cheese   The whole point of this is that it’s not good for you, it doesn’t contain any top quality cheeses.  This is as far away from Colston Bassett as you could imagine.   This is to be used on burgers, poured over chilli, nachos and pretty much anything else.  Preferably eaten alone […]

Celery & Celeriac Soup

Cream of celery & celeriac soup:     Medium chop one head of celery and one white onion. Add a splash of oil to a large pan (it will need to be big enough for all the soup), once hot add the celery and onion. Add salt and continue to fry without colouring. If you’d […]

Curried Coley

Curried Coley

Curried coley.   I’ve made two versions of this dish recently. One for a supper club and another for a pop up at The Fat Loaf. I love it as a dish as it avoids some of the pitfalls of the “traditional British curry” in that the sauce and fish are not overcooked together resulting […]
