I didn't know that Italians had fritattas for dinner, not breakfast like I'm accustomed to. Upon hearing this delightful information, I set about making dinner based around this wonderful idea. So, I made a delicious fritatta packed full of parmesan, courgette...

I got to the end of the week with some stuff in the fridge and pantry. It seemed like just stuff, before it turn into this dynamic dish. Crispy potatoes, fluffy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, crunchy blanched broad beans, sweet caramelized onions, tangy balsami...

The aim of the game in this dish was to put a local spin on a global favourite: FRIED CHICKEN. It has a crunchy crumb made of Scottish oatcakes, oat flour and herbs and spices, and I paired it with a mojito potato salad. Complete with thinly sliced cheddar and my own h...

I've been sitting on this on for a while. I don't know why I hung on to it for so long, because it was delicious. Maybe it was because I took the photo on my phone, or because we ate the meal in a hurry, but it didn't deserve to be left in the dust. This was delicious,...

A dish made from one meat to emulate another. Not inspired by cats' whiskers, but certainly influenced by them. This may sound like a strange concept on which to base a meal, but bare with me. My old cat Hermit abhorred me touching his whiskers. I quickly learned that...
