Notes about Recipes in this site

  • Rhubarb posset

    • darcie_b on June 11, 2020

      This posset doesn’t set up quite as firm as a citrus one, but the flavor was excellent. I needed extra rhubarb to make enough syrup.

  • Diana Henry’s chicken with pumpkin, cream & Gruyère

    • Rradishes on November 12, 2017

      So delicious, definitely bookmarking this one. It is very rich though, with all the cream and cheese.

  • How to make Mamta’s delicious Lucknowi-style lamb biryani

    • Foodycat on October 16, 2014

      Really delicious - I used a half a small lime instead of the lemon, and 300g rice and it was still 4 substantial portions. It makes a very fragrant curry, without a lot of heat (depending on the chilli you use).

  • Grasmere gingerbread

    • Foodycat on July 07, 2020

      I was a bit sceptical - 1tsp ginger seemed very meagre to 225g flour - but it ends up with a lovely warm spicy flavour. Next time I won't bother holding back the extra crumbs, I will just press it all into the tin - the crumbs give a nice appearance but they are very messy! It's a crunchy biscuit rather than the softer, cakey style, and delicious with a cup of tea.

  • Japanese ginger pork

    • Foodycat on February 04, 2021

      Really simple & very quick. We had it with brown rice and cucumber salad.

  • Proper pork pies made with gluten-free hot water crust pastry

    • Foodycat on October 16, 2022

      I used a half quantity of the pastry for a 5" game pie. The pastry came together well and the recipient was delighted.

  • Lamb chops with cacio e pepe white beans

    • Foodycat on July 15, 2021

      Unbelievably flavourful for so few ingredients! We barbecued our lamb chops but I still wanted the rosemary and garlic flavours, so I did a dish of tomatoes with rosemary & garlic and a drizzle of olive oil in the barbecue as a side dish.

  • Sweet & sticky tofu knots

    • Foodycat on November 18, 2021

      I used frozen tofu knots (thawed) not dried, so I skipped the soaking stage and then proceeded with the recipe, just giving a light dusting of cornstarch rather than letting them sit in it for 10 minutes. The flavour was very good but the texture was slightly hard work - after the initial crunch they were very, very chewy.

  • Sri Lankan garlic clove curry

    • Foodycat on June 25, 2022

      Well! This is a revelation! I made a half quantity and used yellow tomatoes because I wanted a colour contrast with the other dishes I was making. I used regular medium curry powder rather than a roasted Sri Lankan one. It's absolutely delicious. Mellow and fragrant.

  • Kavey’s “That’s not proper Indian is it?” sausage curry

    • adewar on March 09, 2016

      I thought this recipe would go down well with my sons, who love sausages and curry. I cooked the onions for a while before adding garlic and ginger to avoid burning the garlic. I removed the sausage casings before cooking and I cooked the sausage pieces in a separate pan before adding to the sauce (so that I could drain off some of the pork fat). I also added a heaped tablespoon of mango chutney to the sauce. It went down pretty well with the boys - a good midweek supper. Next time I would reduce the turmeric slightly and limit the chili powder to 1/4 teaspoon.
