Yorkshire puddings

A family tradition, a well-guarded secret and maybe the best part of Sunday roast, well except for the meat, possibly.

There are a million versions and no guarantee that the batter you make will rise like sky scrapers or be flat as biscuits.

Yorkshire pudding wars have been fought in our house for as long as I can remember and most of the time I win (sorry Mum!)

Two rules, firstly; whatever oil, fat or lard you use must be hotter than the centre of the sun.

Posted On 21st November 2013


Mussels are in season and incredibly easy to cook so you shouldn’t be put off with complicated recipes or worrying about them fighting back.

They are incredibly healthy, brilliant on their own or in a risotto or paella.

I’ve found you an easy-peasy 15 minute recipe, one of my favourites from eating ‘Moules et Frite’ in France (mussels and chips!)

Seasonal Celeriac

Author Damien Wilde
Posted On 20th November 2013


Don’t let the pumpkins and squash steal the show, November is also a good month for root vegetables.

Celeriac could be considered to have a slightly off putting appearance perhaps, somewhere between a misshapen turnip crossed with a human brain but it truly is the unsung hero of the vegetable world.

For one thing, it is healthy and fairly easy to prepare, for 100 grams this vegetable packs only 45 calories.

It is as versatile as a potato but lower in starch, celeriac is beautiful boiled then mashed, skinned and roasted or added to soups, stews and casseroles.
