Tried & Tested: Sorted’s Creamy Squash Gnocchi

You may have figured out from my Wasabi Tuna & Noodle Salad post a few weeks ago followed by this post that I’ve spent a fair bit of time on the Sorted website looking for recipe ideas lately. I’ve gone on about how good they are before so I’ll limit my gushing in this post, but the boys over…

Señor Ceviche, Kingly Court

Ceviche and Peruvian cuisine are by no means new to the London food scene. Frith Streets aptly named Ceviche has been stalwart of the Soho food scene for quite some time. However, of late, this cuisine has been getting a little more attention as several more ceviche themed restaurants have popped up across our capital….

Tried & Tested: Sorted Wasabi Tuna & Noodle Salad

If you’ve never come across Sorted before, I highly recommend it for recipe and cooking tips. Sorted started as a group of lads in London posting YouTube recipe videos teaching their audience and initially each other how to cook. Their YouTube channel has now grown into a ‘global food community‘ with hundreds of free recipes available online they’ve also…

Copita, Soho

Mediterranean food has a special place in my heart. Having spent many summers in Spain, eating way too much paella and tapas, I have fallen in love with their laid back, sharing way of eating. I love the social aspect of everyone sitting around a table together, sharing drinks and food and everyone getting to…

Salmon & Feta Pasta

For me, nothing make’s a better midweek dinner than a delicious bowl of pasta. It’s the ultimate fast food. It can be easy to get stuck in a rut of adding the same old ingredients over and over again though (I’m a massive pesto fiend) so I try as much as possible to mix it…

Sam’s Chowder House, Half Moon Bay CA

On my recent travels in California Sam’s Chowder House absolutely has to be up there as one of the stand out eating experiences. Having visited a couple of times now I make a special effort to try and visit whenever I’m over there. Perched on Half Moon Bay overlooking the water, the restaurant has spectacular views and…

Pan Fried Sea Bass with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

Lately, unintentionally, I have found myself more and more often skipping the meat and choosing vegetarian or fish dishes instead. I haven’t really made a conscious decision about this, but I think it’s just because sometimes the amount of meat we consume as a society just feels a bit heavy. I’m nowhere near close to…

Smoked Haddock Chowder

Whilst a chowder may sound like the sort of meal that might take ages to prep or be a bit complicated I actually find it a really great meal to make when I’ve got a nice bit of fish in and I want to use up some veg and potatoes. It’s actually pretty simple to…

Cheesy Pesto Salmon Puff Parcels

As much as I believe in cooking from scratch and doing as much as you can yourself, there are some ingredients that are worth cheating on. I like to make my own pastry from time to time when I’ve got a whole weekend day to spare and I’ve got loads of time to spend in…

Spicy Fish Stew

One of my favourite things about cooking is that once you’ve got the hang of a few basic skills, understand flavours and have a well stocked store cupboard of herbs and spices you don’t really have to plan and prep so much and can make things on a whim and mix up your recipe as…
