Hake in Green Sauce

Enjoyed by Bill

This is a staple of the Basque region of Spain. It seems in every way a bit foreign or difficult. But it’s basically fish in a parsley flavoured sauce. It’s a good recipe to learn as you can swap around the ingredients endlessly to suit your taste and budget.

Strawberry Flan

Enjoyed by Bill

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). This flan was served with the coffee and I was surprised that the base was homemade. So I found my own special sponge tin, did some translating and started baking. There are many quick cheats for this recipe which means it can be knocked up in no time. Or there is the full WDC method which will take a little longer…

Beetroot Salad

Enjoyed by Bill

You can’t go wrong with beetroot and goats cheese – so I make no apologies for another version of this tasty combo.

Kohlrabi Asian Salad

Enjoyed by Bill

Kohlrabi has a faint taste of coconut. It’s crisp and crunchy, so I thought it would be perfect in an Asian salad.
