The big V-day is almost upon us and this year, Peter and I will be switching the fancy restaurants for a romantic night in. They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach so this Valentine's Day ...
Send your tastebuds into overdrive with this absolute flavour sensation of sweet chill mackerel! Mackerel is one of my favourite fishes, it's delicious, healthy and low carb too.
My husband Peter doesn't eat meat, so at home, fish and veggies are our go-to dishes. Cod is one of my favourite fishes. With its subtle yet delicious flavour, and firm, flakey texture, it goes perfectly with oriental-influenced ingredients such as noodles and pak-choi.
Being a busy working mama, it's not often I get to cook a decadent 2 or even 3 course meal; however, every now and then I love to invite the whole family round and put on a feast that's fit for kings and queens!
Forget reaching for the the takeaway menus, because this homemade curry is equally tasty and a lot healthier than most of the curry house alternatives.
Last Sunday saw this family head to our closest Iceland in Kirkstall, Leeds for a BIG weekly shop, and while we were there, I made a vlog taking you around the store and showing you what went in our haul. EVERYTHING comes to mind!
If you like your food spicy then this is the dish for you! Full of bold and complex flavours, it's guaranteed to send your taste buds into overdrive.
I love this dish. It always reminds me of my times at Cannes Film Festival, dining alfresco in the sunshine sat in a bistro overlooking the Cotes D'Azur while enjoying the wonderfully fresh seafood that the Mediterranean is famed for. Pure bliss!
My husband Peter and I both love Japanese food. Pre-kids, we regularly dined out in our local Japanese restaurant and even now it is still one of our favourite date night cuisines, but unfortunately with two sons under the age of 6 we don't get to enjoy it as much as we would like. The solution? Make our own! And this beautiful sesame crusted tuna is as delicious as any restaurant dish I've ever tasted!
My husband Peter doesn't eat meat but loves Caesar dressing, so as an alternative to chicken we like use salmon, which is healthier and also robust enough to stand up to the strong tasting Caesar flavour.
How adventurous are you in the kitchen? I mean when was the last time you cooked up something really extravagant at home? Weeks, months, a year?
We're Greek Orthodox here (I was born in the UK, both my parents are originally Greek Cypriot), and as the Greek Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar to calculate when Easter falls, not the Gregorian, our Easter fell last Sunday just gone, a week after English Easter.
It's #Tastytuesdays time again and having just returned from a relaxing week away in Marbella, I wanted to share the recipe for one of my favourite Spanish tapas dishes - Gambas Pil Pil!
Today's Tasty Tuesdays is an absolute favourite of mine and takes no time at all to cook either. Found on the Specials Board at the Olive Tree Greek Restaurant in Leeds, here is Papa G's perfect pan-fried scallops with chilli and ginger.
