Korean BBQ Beef

Simple, easy and full on flavour, is the only way to describe this dish.  The traditional name is Bulgogi, meaning ‘fire-meat’ which derives from cooking in a searingly hot wok, pan or on the BBQ.  Use beef, pork or tofu and also if you’re cooking for a crowd, chuck in some veggies.

Roasted Salmon with Pesto Tossed Veggies

I often create, this elegant dish for my girlfriends and I, when we don’t want to consume too many carbs, (because our wine intake won’t allow it!!)  Or if my boys are popping round and want to load up on veggies with a meal containing a meaty fish.  On a more serious note, this dish is great if you’re a diabetic or if carbs for tea isn’t always what you need. Gluten Free and bags of flavour.

Popsie’s Banging Tomato Chutney

Whether I grow 1,2 or 5 tomato plants, at the end of the Summer season, I always have enough tomatoes for my whole neighbourhood, which luckily for me is a good thing.  Homegrown tomatoes (or any for that matter), especially freshly picked and full of the sun are the perfect ingredient for this sweet n easy chutney. This recipe belonged to my children’s grandfather, Popsie, who was a fab home cook and my best friend.

Summer Tomato Soup & Fried Basil Chips

This is the epitome of Italian dishes (locally known as Pappa al Pomodoro) and one of my favourite, favourite soup recipes.  Actually calling it a soup is like calling the Queen ‘a lady with a handbag!’  When it’s made slowly, with love this dish has enough magic to make you believe in the simplicity and majesty of Mother Nature’s bountiful pantry! Also, 12 million Italians can’t be wrong.  An opera in a bowl……..
