Greek Salad


An amazingly tasty and easy lunch to cook.

With the Greek Kalamata Olives and Feta Cheese, this salad knocks your socks off.
(Sorry to sound Jamie’esque)!!

This salad is a wholesome and healthy lunch or a perfect side for Lamb Koftas etc!

Seared Tuna Nicoise Salad


The weather was warm on Friday and what with a demand for fish for dinner, from the household - this absolutely hit the brief.

I love the zingy tasty dressing, the wonderful pick’ n’mix from the salad and the gorgeous just cooked and firm Tuna fillet.

I worked in Paris for three years, and the Nicoise was frequently served with canned haricot verte. They add a unique nutty flavour and bizarrely a crunchy texture and I think add something to the salad.

This is one of those dishes that you eat and each mouthful is unique but very very satisfying.

I cannot express how much you should cook this dish!

Creamy Penne Pasta with Pancetta and Romaine Lettuce Salad


When I popped into
Wyndham House Butchers last week, Rod gave me a packet of Faella Penne Pasta. I have to say the pasta is extremely good - it went down extremely well with last night’s unexpected guests. I will definitely be picking up another packet in the near future.

I asked the butcher for the end piece of Pancetta - it was excellent. Great flavour, lots of meat and crisped up extremely well. Each lardon was like an explosion of salty goodness in your mouth!

This dish is ridiculously easy to make, from start to finish it can be made it 20-25 minutes.

The combination of cream, garlic, herbs and Parmesan always pack a punch in the flavour department. A classic and super tasty Italian meal ideal for a midweek dinner.
