Smoked Walnut Dukkah

Every Autumn I have an abundance of walnuts & there’s nothing like a jar of freshly blended dukkah. I sprinkle this mix over soft cheese for platters, salads or hot pasta for flavour & texture.  As a marinade with oil over grilled fish or chicken. When roasting potatoes or veggies a spoonful over 5 minutes before I remove them from the oven. Otherwise, lovely with fresh bread and warm olive oil.

Parsnip Puree

This is perfect for pairing with my ‘Venison 2 Ways’ dish, and an absolute winner of a side when you want to impress without too much fuss – It delivers on flavour, texture and taste – What more could you want in a side dish?

Apple Slaw

This recipe is just the right accompaniment to all things pork. It’s fantastic to take along to barbecues and a good base to which you can add different herbs or other ingredients handy in your pantry or fridge.

Sides

Rice and Peas

This is the Jamaican equivalent of potatoes for the Irish, pasta for the Italians, noodles for the Chinese and naan for the Indians. Every Sunday I would wake to the aroma of garlic simmering in this broth and would spend the day wishing dinner was ready. My mum would make a huge saucepan of this rice for our family, enough to feed us all on Sunday and Monday – yum!
