  • Caponata

    • Melanie on July 22, 2016

      I enjoyed this as a side dish although would reduce the vinegar slightly next time.

  • Baked chicken thighs with preserved lemon and rosemary

    • Melanie on July 22, 2016

      We really liked this chicken - simple to prepare but packed with flavour. Served with the caponata and buttered steamed corn.

  • Pasta with crab and roasted smoked tomatoes

      My smoked tomatoes didn’t have a smoky flavor at all. As you just put a small slit in the skin before smoking them I wonder if a smoky flavor is even achievable in the 20mins Maggie suggests. I tried doing them for 35 mins and still nothing. I would like to try smoking tomatoes again with a lot more wood chips. I ended up adding a smoked cherrywood salt instead of plain salt to the dish to get some smokiness into it.The dish itself is pleasant and fresh and light but needed more oomph. I ended up whisking some extra lemon juice and a good olive oil and tossing that through. Maybe some Merquen (smoked chili flakes) would be good too. Maggie said use large shells but I would suggest medium sized shells. My large shells were far too large and cumbersome to eat. I don’t know if I would make this again, although if I succeed at smoked tomatoes maybe I would give it another whirl.
