Chilli Rellenos (Padron)

Minature chilli rellenos made with padron peppers.

Tosi Gorgonzola Canapés , Ice Cream, Burgers and Wardorf Salads

This may seem a little over-the-top for a dinner party – but you will certainly make an impression!

A Simple Sharer of Asparagus with Butter and Lemon

Most cooks agree that when you have an amazing ingredient it is best to prepare it as simply as possible. And they are not wrong: this must be the very best way to eat asparagus. Steamed and presented in a big stack to share. Butter, salt and lemon are optional extras…

Asparagus Mini Wellingtons

These are outrageously delicious. Serve warm as an hors d’oeuvre.

Tomato, Tofu and Avocado

The Italian tricolor? A caprese salad? But it’s not mozzarella – it’s tofu. Tofu and avocado are a match made in heaven – so can the partnership be more inclusive ? Absolutely.

Strawberry Flan

This is based on an Erdbeer-Biskuit-Kuchen recipe from a German fruit flan cookbook. I was given the book during a recent trip to Germany by our hosts during ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ (traditional coffee and cake social just after lunch).

Five-Spice Glazed Gammon with Five-Spice Sauce

Pete always liked my Asian-flavoured sweet glazed ham. So here is a version based on five-spice flavourings.

Nduja Crostini

I was blown away by a nduja pizza I had in London. So naturally, I bought some the next time I was in my Italian deli…

Snickerdoodle Dandies

An American favourite and an excellent way with cinnamon.

Dad’s Californian Salad with Artichokes and Fresh Vegetables

A delicious salad of fresh vegetables, typical of those grown in my childhood home!

Turkish Eggs

These were trending a while back, but they were made famous long ago by Peter Gordon at Kopapa in Covent Garden London (now closed). I had them there and thought them a bit gloopy (sorry Peter/Turkey).

Chocolate Snack Bars

These bars are delicious. They are full of good things but low in added sugar and added fats.

Summer Rolls with Nuoc Cham

Dad’s Vietnamese summer rolls with nuoc cham dipping sauce is a must learn. A tasty salad in a roll just waiting to be dipped in a beautiful nuoc cham!

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

‘Veg going mouldy… easy… turn them into a warming soup!’

Japanese Smoked Mackerel Canapés

Dad made these for my girlfriend and mum at the weekend. A very pleasant surprise before dinner — with caviar!
