Bresaola and avocado with rocket, Parmesan and crisp toasts

Enjoyed by Bill

This is a standard Soho trattatoria fare of the 70’s. Bresaola, rocket and Parmesan is still popular so the avocado element seems to have fallen out of favour. Put it back in – it’s a good combo!

It’s the British asparagus season – make the most of it with this very simple combination: fresh asparagus from local fields and fresh peas from a pod, boiled and then quickly braised in butter, with lemon herbs and hazlenuts and kasha for a bit of crunch.

Tomato, Tofu and Avocado

Spinach, Tofu, Avocado

Enjoyed by Bill

This recipe is all about tofu and how well it partners avocado, spinach, sesame and ponzu dressing. I’ve been rather fastidious in presentation – but don’t let that put you off. Just try the combo, however its presented.

Braised Belly Pork

Enjoyed by Bill

There’s a big culinary issue at stake here. Is pork belly skin and fat best when it;s crispy or when it is soft and unctuous? I like it both ways – here’s how to do soft and unctuous.

Côte De Boeuf with Béarnaise and Chips

Enjoyed by Bill

A côte de boeuf is a basically a monster steak with a bone in, or a French version of a rib of beef. But however you want to describe it, it is a wonderful piece of beef. Cook it simply and serve with chips and salad – and my no-split, light and easy béarnaise sauce.
