A gorgeous Greek recipe!
Rendang with a tuna twist!
My kids love a roast, as do I-it's just so easy to fling a bird in the oven with lashings of olive oil, a ton of garlic, lemon and oregano and cook!
This delicious, filling dish is ideal to cook up at the start of the week before freezing to be eaten whenever you feel like it or equally makes a perfect weekend dish for
Hi guys, I'm excitingly working with Simply Beef and Lamb on their Live Peasant challenge and if you missed my first post in this meaty mini series then please head over to see the hearty, healthy and filling Lamb, Vegetable and Lentil Soup with Cabbage.
We love making midweek hearty meals here, those which we can cook up in a batch on the weekend or a Monday morning, freeze and then feed the hungry household throughout the week. One tray or one pot meals save time, are economical and make life easier for we busy parents who simply want filling, healthy, delicious food with minimum fuss and mess.
I eat meat once a month on average and love Greek style lamb kofta.
Preparing and cooking a healthy, home made family meal every evening is no easy feat for us busy parents is it?!
Dinner with Antonio Carluccio & His Recipe for Spaghetti di Farro Con Luganega (Spelt Spaghetti with Sausage Sauce)
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting one of the most talented chefs, restaurateurs and TV personalities in the world: Antonio Carluccio who of course shares his name with his successful empire of restaurants, artisan Italian produce and cookbooks.
Je t'aime Aubaine with all my French-loving heart, a restaurant I frequented as a filmmaker pre-blogging days, and one I've had the pleasure of review in my guise here as a foodie blogger come restaurant critic (and the rest)!
Lamb Kleftiko is a firm favourite in this house. It literally means ‘stolen’ and the name was derived during the Ottoman Empire when Greek freedom fighters stole lamb, goats or sheep and cooked the meat in clay ovens or underground to eliminate smoke not to betray their positions. The lamb was cooked very slowly until it literally fell off the bone.
Dinner at Aubaine & an Exclusive Recipe for their Lamb Cassoulet, Merguez Sausage & Green Herb Crust
While in London over half term staying at the Royal Garden hotel that we were reviewing, we were kindly invited to dine at the Kensington branch of acclaimed London restaurant group Aubaine.
This is a favourite of my Mum's and I was truly overwhelmed (as was she) by everyone's lovely comments over on Instagram and my FB page requesting the recipe! Never one to disappoint (hopefully) here is my Mum's tasty, easy to make Greek Chicken Tava-enjoy!
This may not be a strictly traditional Greek recipe but it was given by a local from the island of Hydra, where a lot of writers, intellectuals and artists live and work.
I'm recently back and just about recovered from, an incredible time at the Cannes Film Festival. If you missed my post all about the films, fashion and general fabulosity (that's a word, right?) of the fest, you can read it HERE. Truly exquisite food and films were consumed during my time there along with the most glamorous parties I've been to and this was my third and so far most favourite time at the festival.

Perfect for the winter and ideal for those eating a low carb, paleo diet, Papa G's traditional Cypriot dish of pork with wine and coriander is both tasty and filling.
