Spaghetti Arrabiata

Spaghetti Arrabiata

I have been cooking Spaghetti Arrabiata for about 15 years and we still have it about once a month.  It is a staunch family fave that never changes.  It is like your old fluffy slippers, your cuddly bear with the torn ear or your  grey old dressing...
Thai Coconut Chicken

Thai Coconut Chicken

We all know I love a good Asian feed, especially one that I have come up with myself……the only inspiration being my imagination at 4am in the morning. This Thai Coconut Chicken dish had the basis of most Thai meals that I cook, the quintessential aromatics...
Chilli Lime Lamb Racks with Sweet Potato

Chilli Lime Lamb Racks with Sweet Potato

There is no quicker way to have a quick lamb roast than with a lamb rack.  They literally take 15-20 minutes to cook, they are choc full of flavour and are finger licking good!  This dish was a little wonder of Asian delight, a low carb alternative and with...
Asian Beef & Roasted Pumpkin Salad

Asian Beef & Roasted Pumpkin Salad

Wow!  I loved this warm Asian inspired salad.  As with all Asian food it had the perfect balance of hot, salty, sweet and sour as well as the crunch of fresh salad and aromatic herbs.  Rib eye cooked to perfection and lightly charred roasted pumpkin completed this...
Asian Style Osso Bucco

Asian Style Osso Bucco

I have a few favourite chefs that inspire me but none more so than Valli Little of Delicious fame.  I have all of her cookbooks and they are a constant source of inspiration to me.  I like to think of myself as a bit of a Valli Little because our cooking styles are so...

Sweet & Sour Pork Spare Ribs with Cucumber & Mint Salsa

I reckon these babies, Pork Spare Ribs,  are the unsung hero of the meat department.  Luckily the restaurants don’t seem to have cottoned on so they are still well within budget (unlike pork belly and lamb shanks) and are really easy to cook with.  I’m...
Thai Yellow Curry Paste

Thai Yellow Curry Paste

The more I cook, the more I want to make things from scratch. A. Because I know exactly what I am putting in it, and B.  It is so easy.  This fresh, mild and aromatic Thai Yellow Curry Paste can be used in Curries, Laksa or as a rub on chicken, fish or pork....
Asian Style Osso Bucco

Homemade Green Curry Paste

A lot of the earlier recipes on this website use store bought curry pastes.  I was not that confident a cook to have a go at my own, not really sure why as they are so simple to make and knock the store bought varieties out of the park.  For me, there is no...
Asian Style Osso Bucco

King Prawn and Preserved Lemon Bruschetta

  I first had a version of this dish at a local restaurant in Newcastle and loved it!  Crunchy, chargrilled ciabatta bread topped with sweet king prawns, crunchy onion and the salty tang of preserved lemons had me ordering it time and time again.  This is my own...
Thai Peanut Chicken with Coconut Rice

Thai Peanut Chicken with Coconut Rice

Thai Peanut Chicken, my son Jake’s favourite.  Too easy.  Totally yummy.  Need I say more…….No, but I will!  Thai red curry and roasted peanut flavours merge together with lime and coconut to give a fresh and summery approach to a traditional curry....
