Herby Chicken Bites


A sure fire week-day favourite. They only take 10 minutes to prepare, and then cook once marinaded.

These herby chicken bites combine a delicious Italian freshness with crispy succulent chicken.

I served these as standalone nibbles, but they would be equally good for a main meal.

Mince Meat and Mince Pies


Finally, it is this time of year again.

I adore Christmas time, the chance to eat a little more than usual and indulge with friends and family.

I love to make my own mincemeat and mince pies - frankly there is not a shop bought recipe that comes close.

The mincemeat is aromatic and stuffed full of plump fruit. The pastry is so short that it only just holds the mince meat in the case.

My recipe is based around Delia’s - the same recipe that I grew up with as a boy. Over the years I have upped the booze and spice to suit my tastes.

I often add other seasonal favourites such as dried cranberries and walnuts to my mincemeat.
