  1. Recipe: Have You Tried Whoopie Pies?

    Recipe: Have You Tried Whoopie Pies? Whoopie pies had a moment of fame just when my book Short & Sweet was coming out, so I dedicated several pages to recipes for chocolate and vanilla versions, with maybe five or six other flavour variations as well: enough to stock a cake stall at the next village fete!

    Recipe: Pasta with Chilli, Prawn, White Fish and Black Olive Sauce A simple but flavour packed seafood sauce to serve with pasta, easy to make in advance: just add the fish at the last minute.

  4. Recipe: Capellini Pasta-filled Baked Courgettes

    Recipe: Capellini Pasta-filled Baked Courgettes In Italy you’d call these ‘zucchine ripiene al pesto’ but - whatever you call them - they’re delicious and one of those mainstays of Italian home-style cooking. I use the very fine Hand-made Einkorn Capellini from the South Devon Pasta Company, and find the delicacy of it swirls and fills the courgettes without any heaviness. They can be made in advance and baked in just 20-30 minutes when... Read more...

  6. Recipe: Fettucine Pasta with Homemade Ragu alla Bolognese

    Recipe: Fettucine Pasta with Homemade Ragu alla Bolognese Pretty much the standard recipe for traditional Ragù alla Bolognese, though there may be a few ingredients here, or not here, that surprise you. No garlic or herbs, though do add them if you like. Milk is added to help tenderise the meat, more useful if you’re using cubed beef rather than minced. You can use half pork and beef for the meat. And everything is cooked separately before combining ... Read more...

It’s like a posh mac’n’cheese, and great on its own or as an accompaniment for grilled vegetables or meats.
