Salmon in chirimea sauce

1140133.jpg

Another recipe from Jerusalem. I think after Nigel Slater’s Appetite it is now the cookbook that I’ve cooked the most recipes from.  It seems to be one of those cookbooks where everything turns out exactly like the picture. This was a really interesting dish. The sauce is quite spicy but subtle, and it includes roasted […]

Roast broccoli and fennel, chicken soup, brown rice

Oh, the wonderful things you can make when you have good chicken soup handy in the freezer. Roast broccoli is my new favourite way to do broccoli: in a roasting tray, sprinkled with olive oil, salt and cumin, roasted in a very hot oven for 40 minutes or so. The stalks go creamy, the heads […]

Coconut chicken curry

_1080115

I haven’t made curry for a while – I was quite happy with this one. I have this problem that I never remember exactly what spices and/or quantities of spices I put in my curries, so I can never re-create them. Even with this one, I just used a random collection of things from the […]

Potato curry

_1040159

This is food from my childhood. I remember mum making curries like this – they would always start with onion, garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin and turmeric frying in a pan, then whatever else (vegetables, meat, spices) that were handy.

Chicken “Tagine”

_1030535

I made this a while ago, and wasn’t very happy with it – but then the other night we had the reheated leftovers (which you see here) that had been in the freezer for about a month – the time in the cold (or maybe the reheating process) seemed to improve the flavour quite a […]
