This shiitake mushroom risotto with blue cheese and spinach is Italian comfort food at its ABSOLUTE best!

Autumn Chicken and Mushroom Stew

Autumn Chicken and Mushroom Stew

I don’t often share traditional, “homey” type meals like this chicken and mushroom stew, but sometimes, I just feel the need to make a family meal that hopefully everyone is going to love. Kids and adults alike. And something other than spaghetti Bolognese or lasagna Bolognese. These two meals have all too often frequented our […]

Pearl barley risotto recipe with dried porcini mushrooms, fresh cremini mushrooms, green onion, parsley asparagus,

Mushroom Barley Risotto with Asparagus

Barley fans! If you haven’t already tried making risotto with pearl barley you should definitely give it a go.

Smoked Tofu Stir-Fry with Asparagus

Stir-fry is one of those things I grew up on.

Black & White Rice with Oyster Mushrooms and Swiss Chard

Here’s a wild rice with oyster mushrooms dish that won’t bore you to death. One inspired from a trip with friends to Istanbul where we experienced some of the most amazing meals — modern Turkish ones, resembling the “Ottolenghi way”. My friend Anna has been there about a zillion times so knows all the best […]

Königin-Pasteten (Vol-au-vent) with a Creamy Veal and Mushroom Ragout

As a main meal or finger food, it’s representative of a traditional German or French dish made for special occasions or to celebrate a festive time of year. Armed with this information, and a festive occasion (my birthday), that was my wish. Königin-Pasteten with a creamy veal and mushroom ragout. It was a Monday night […]
