    Spring in South West France is a gastronomic feast.....all our local markets are overflowing with luscious new vegetables and fruits. My favourites are the little "wild woodland" fraises des bois strawberries, which I am growing in my own garden this year. I thought I would share this pretty way of serving these deliciously sweet strawberries with you - I call them a flavour explosion of strawberry essence! If you cannot get fraises des bois, use seasonal and small strawberries instead. You can buy barquette tins quite easily in France, but if you can’t find them locally, this recipe will work equally well with ordinary round tart tins, as I have used for the photo. Alternatively you could make one big tart. (Barquette tins are shaped like small gondola boats!)

    Recipe #229472

    A light supper dish made from left overs! I had fish and mashed potatoes left after a lovely lunch - so, I decided to make one of our favourite comfort food dishes, fish cakes.......I added a few fresh herbs from the garden, a toasted bun, tartare sauce, lettuce (also from the garden) and we had a delicious light supper! You could of course also have these fish cakes with a salad, chips (French fries) or a baked potato - but we love them served in the style of a fish burger!!

    Recipe #229370

    Sizzling Spanish seafood, perfect for a summer's evening or a tapas party. This simple, baked dish is one of our favourites, great with a glass of ice-cold Fino. You can serve these in the middle of the table - in a large, attractive earthenware dish or in individual bowls. Provide plenty of paper napkins for fingers and faces!! Or, finger bowls with iced lemon water would be a nice idea. Tactile food at its best!

    Recipe #229363

    I discovered this yellowing paper cutting in my Mum's recipe scrapbook recently - this recipe is the one we always used to use when I was younger. The recipe was posted in the South China Morning Post in 1963 - by a chef from The Repulse Bay Hotel - that lovely old Colonial hotel is sadly no longer there......they used to have this great satay on the menu, as well as the MOST amazing Club Sandwiches! Absolutely authentic and I have decided to share it with you all!! If some of the language is a bit archaic - it is because I have decided to post it, as it was written in the paper at the time!

    Recipe #229127

    A very "upper-crust" savoury scrambled eggs recipe which dates back to Victorian times; this dish would have been served at the END of a large five or six course meal! Nowadays, it is more likely - one assumes - that it will be served at breakfast, brunch or as a light snack! This uses Gentleman's Relish, I have the "secret" recipe posted on Zaar! Recipe #228778

    Recipe #228846

    The recipe for Gentleman's Relish has remained a secret since it was first invented by John Osborn in 1828 and no doubt some, whose taste buds recoil at this intensely salty blend of anchovies, butter, herbs and spices are happy for it to remain secret. However, it is wonderful spread on hot toast and added to scrambled eggs.....as well as adding a "kick" to savoury sauces and sandwiches! It is the essential ingredient for Scotch Woodcock - a Victorian snack served at the end of a meal! (For those who are interested, I have posted the recipe on Zaar!) This is my interpretation of this famous English relish.

    Recipe #228778

    A deep coloured, fruity and intensely flavoured chutney. I concocted this recipe last year, when we had lots of windfall pears......and, I slipped a bit of saffron in for good measure! This chutney is delicious with ALL cheeses, but especially strong hard cheeses such as Farmhouse Cheddar, Gruyere, Comte and Cantal. It also goes exceedingly well with cold meats and charcuterie - especially cold roast Ham. Dollop it in sandwiches, add it to curry & cooking sauces.....the list is endless for this fruity chutney! It is always best eaten after at least 1-2 months; the flavours are mature and mellow. (This recipe has been posted as a special dedication for two close friends, one on RecipeZaar and one who sadly passed away recently - may all your pears be saffron pears & all your days be golden.)

    Recipe #228772

    This is such a wonderful and easy recipe, especially if you are Stilton cheese and potato fans, as we are! Just slice up pre-cooked potatoes, add a slice of Stilton, season and bake in a pastry case, and there you have it......a great snack, lunch or picnic food extraordinaire! Serve them with assorted chutneys, pickles, salads or even MORE potatoes for a very tasty meal. I have stipulated ready-made shortcrust pastry, but puff pastry would also work well. Ingredients are listed for 4 people - however, this recipe is easy to multiply or reduce, according to your potato and Stilton supplies!!

    Recipe #228752

    This is one of my favourite Summer salad recipes.....the vibrant colours are amazing, as are all the mingling flavours! The baby fennel bulbs are roasted until charred and then simply served with fresh oranges, black olives, red onion, fresh mint and a divine orange vinaigrette! I serve this alongside grilled, roast or barbequed Duck or Lamb - it is also great when served with a good grilled Steak.

    Recipe #228720

    These stuffed vegetables are typical fare from Provençe - the region that hugs the Mediterranean coastline in the South of France. Vegetables, olives and olive oil are used in abundance in Provençe, and this recipe really captures the sun and fragrance of this much-loved area! There are numerous recipes for these famous stuffed vegetables, but this one is my favourite.......all that is needed is crusty bread and a glass of wine, et voila - an excellent light dinner or summer lunch. I have stipulated baby "round" courgettes (zucchini) and tomatoes in this recipe, but you can also use onions and aubergines (eggplant) as well.

    Recipe #228711

    A selection of my four favourite "cheesy" flavoured butters..... Cheddar & Garlic Butter, Camembert Butter, Roquefort Butter and Stilton & Green Peppercorn Butter. These can be prepared well ahead of time and stored in the fridge or the freezer. I then cut off rounds or slices, as and when I need them. My favourite uses for these wonderful cheese butters are as toppings for steaks, grilled fish and vegetables. They are also wonderful spread and melted on ciabatta, a baguette or good artisinal bread - a meal in themselves!! I have also popped a slice or two into pasta dishes or white and any savoury sauces, for that extra cheesy zing!

    Recipe #228627

    These wonderful little tartelettes are made from a combination of ripe, sweet pears with tangy, sharp Roquefort blue cheese and aromatic rosemary.They make an excellent and very elegant starter; they are also wonderful if served as a light luncheon dish, with salads and chutney or pickles. The galettes can be assembled several hours in advance - or even the night before - then chilled until you are ready to bake and serve them. I have stipulated shortcrust pastry - but puff pastry can also be used.

    Recipe #228626

    This has been posted in response to a personal request; it is taken from Alan Davidson's excellent book about Mediterranean Seafood, and is a local recipe from Aix-en-Provence, made by Mme Ricard! The serving suggestion for this Anchoïade, is rather romantic and very French - it should be served it says, surrounded by a profusion of local black olives, "en couronne d'un velours sombre et chatoyant"..... in a crown of titillating dark velvet! How wonderful, how very French! A superb recipe which is wonderful served on bread rolls, as suggested here!

    Recipe #227364

    Pinchitos Morunos (Moorish Skewers) are extremely popular as a Tapa, partuclarly in Andalucia. They are of Moorish origin, and are usually made from Lamb or Pork, I have used Chicken as the meat in this recipe, but I have listed other options! They are marinated in a Moorish saffron & spice mix and usually grilled outside and over charcoal or wood; however, they also cook beautifully on a griddle or in a heavy griddle type pan inside, during the cooler months. These are my favourite meat skewers and make a regular appearance on the "Al Fresco Lunch Table" during the Summer months. Great finger food for friends - or you can increase the quantities and make a meal of them. Serve them with a simple Tomato & Parsley Salad with my Sherry Vinegar Dressing, Flatbreads & Pickles for a true taste of Spain!

    Recipe #227243

    A light, fresh and very tasty potato salad, which is more of a meal than a side dish! I made this up when I had a few spears of fresh asparagus left, some boiled potatoes and some honey roast ham in the fridge! This recipe/idea is for two people - but it can be increased with ease, hence my listing of the ingredients in numbers, rather than in ounces or grammes! The dressing can be made ahead......and, hopefully it will be warm enough to sit outside and soak up the spring or early summer sun......c'est Parfait!

    Recipe #226549

    Valencia is true orange growing country, and this recipe is based on fresh orange juice, which is best - try not to use carton or bottled orange juice. And beware, this innocuous-sounding drink is strong! It must be served ice cold - if Cointreau is not available or too expensive - use a local orange liqueur.

    Recipe #225953

    Huevos Revueltos Con Esparragos - this traditional Spanish recipe is usually made with wild asparagus - but very tiny sprues will work equally well. This delicious and very indulgent light supper dish will feed four people with side dishes and crusty bread, or two greedy people! It is also excellent served as a Tapas dish - make sure there is lots of bread to scoop it up with!

    Recipe #225928

    There are many recipes for this famous Spanish tapas dish - this recipe was given to me by a Spanish friend from Madrid, and is the only recipe I use now..........I like the fact that the potatoes are baked in the oven, making it easier to prepare & socialise with a glass of Sangria or two! In Spain, Patatas Bravas is often served with mayonnaise or alioli - however you choose to serve it, this is a "must" for your Tapas table!

    Recipe #225644

    A deliciously simple and yet very tasty Spanish Tapas dish. The beauty of this recipe is that is steeps in the wine for 24 hours - making it very easy to plan ahead. Serve in an an attractive earthenware dish and sprinkle with chopped flat leaf parsley. I like to skewer these with toothpicks, to make it easier and less messy to eat! Do try to use very high quality Spanish Chorizo sausage - the cheaper types do not taste nearly as good, and contain a very high fat content.

    Recipe #225487

    My latest culinary discovery and invention! I had some lovely fresh salmon fillets, a fennel bulb and lots of potatoes.....so, I thought I would make a one dish meal out of it. Everyone loved it and it is light enough to eat any time of the year. Do try to use WHOLE boned & skinned salmon fillets - they sit so well lengthways in your gratin dish! I added no garlic to mine - I felt that the fennel and onion flavours were enough; but if you like, a clove or two at the most might be a tasty addition. Serve with chilled Chablis, Colombard,Chardonnay or a good Rose wine for a delightful lunch or supper. We ate this with crusty bread and a big bowl of mixed salad.....plus a couple bottles of wine! This serves 6 people as a main meal, but it can be reduced or increased according to your menu requirements.
