  • Braised beef shin with thyme dumplings
    Beef shin is a cheaper cut that needs a long and slow cook to get the most out of it, but after it's had the time, the result is well worth the wait!

  • Beef Stroganoff
    My take on beef stroganoff, made as a mushroom free dish, with Sirloin steak as a happy medium between fillet and rump

  • Sea Bass parcels with asian flavours
    This recipe is based on one by Donal Skehan, tweaked to account for what I had in the fridge and rustled up solely on the desire to use some Sea Bass fillets I had, but not to go for my usual 'go to' choice of serving it with a fresh mango salsa. It also has the bonus of being super quick to cook and the parcels keep the amount of washing up down, win/win!

  • Shepherds Pie - with roast lamb
    The photo isn't a particularly good one, though it is hard to make melted cheese on top of mashed potato look attractive, unless you've got professional lighting and a photographer. Do trust me though, this tasted delicious - what's not to love though, lamb, onion gravy, mashed potato and cheese

  • Pork spare rib chop marinated in Pineapple & Soy
    Not a looker, but very, very tasty. Far more sauce than you need, but that's better than the other way around

  • Chorizo, Chilli, Tomato & Orzo soup
    A thrown together soup that forgoes finesse for lip tingling heat and chorizo tastiness!
