GUEST BLOG: INCOGNITO DINING

I am thrilled to introduce a guest blog by Incognito Dining. With Easter a few short weeks away (18 days, 8 hours, 40 minutes and 9 seconds to be exact), we have an egg-citing article… on eggs. It is a real celebratory piece with a lovely recipe to boot, championing the egg that is otherwise a humble ingredient. If you love…

RECIPE: VEGAN KOREAN DRAGON BOWL

RECIPE: VEGAN KOREAN DRAGON BOWL

You’ve heard about Buddha Bowls, but do you know what Dragon Bowls are? Dragon Bowls are Buddha Bowls’ more exotic, fiery cousin. The secret lies in the sauce, which has a gorgeous meaty, yeasty tang.

RECIPE: NEW YORK CLUB SANDWICH (QUORN™ CHILLI & LIME SLICED FILLETS)

I love a good sandwich. Bread, lashings of creamy butter, crisp lettuce, juicy beef tomatoes (are you hungry yet?)… what’s not to like?

Hi all, I hope you’re doing well. Question for you – how often do you cook? I cook every day, and although I photograph dishes from my test kitchen and make notes, I find the bulk of my time is taken up reviewing restaurants and doing the write-ups. I have a tonne of recipes to write up, both original and…

Hi all, how are you doing? It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe. Truth be told, I’m a big foodie at heart and I’m always cooking in my Derby kitchen; I currently have around 50 recipes to post, which I’m scheduling over the course of upcoming months. It’s been a busy time, what with work being mad busy,…

Recipe: Raz’s kheer rice pudding

I read a fair few cookery books. Going into town can be little tricky sometimes, as I nearly always pick up a cookery book, to add to my ever growing mountain (usual suspects include James Martin, Michael Caines and Tom Kerridge). When I went out for dinner a few days ago at Cosmo in Derby (a review of that coming…
