  • Mummified Chicken

    April 2010

    I found ‘A Tale of 12 Kitchens’ in Peckham Library. It was on my radar because the man who wrote it, artist Jake Tilson, is local, and the book has a section on Peckham. One of the recipes was this ‘mummified chicken’ – apparently so named by the author’s wife but Middle Eastern in origin […]

  • Adipoli Parathas

    April 2010

    The tava is still my favourite new toy. For a while, I didn’t even put it away but just let it sit on the worktop so I could look at it more, like a new pair of shoes that you just can’t put in the cupboard. I started basic with chapatis and then felt ready […]

  • Riverford organic farm

    April 2010

    The phrase ‘seasonal eating’ has now been so over used that it’s become slightly cringe worthy, like the idea of eating only locally sourced produce and all the sickly lingo that goes with it – ‘locavore’ being the best example. The principles behind these concepts are well meaning, yet it appears we have lost all […]

  • The Gowlett: Pizza in Peckham

    April 2010

    The Gowlett is a pub that does pizza and it takes me all of a few minutes to walk there from my house. The combination of these three facts pleases me. The pizzas are by no means perfect – the toppings are sometimes a bit too generous for my taste (even I can only eat […]

  • Garlic Curry with Chapatis & Cucumber Pachadi

    April 2010

    I now laugh in the face of normal quantities of garlic. Since chicken with 40 cloves I consider myself a hardcore garlic eater. I’m sure you can smell my breath from wherever you are. This recipe contains a whopping 3 whole bulbs and on top of that 3 whole onions, which is a lot of […]

  • Food From The Rye: Khan’s Bargain Ltd.

    April 2010

    Khan’s Bargain Ltd. is my favourite shop in Peckham. It’s hard to know where to start with telling you about it but I think Khan puts it rather nicely with the hilarious tag line ‘walk in and see the variety’. This is not a joke. There’s a lot of stuff in that shop, much of […]

  • Mudchute Farm and Kitchen

    April 2010

    [Edit: Mudchute Kitchen has changed hands since this post and apparently this is not a good thing. I haven’t been recently and so I can no longer recommend it. Please see comment from Hana below]. I think I was  more excited than my mates’ 4 year old daughter at the prospect of visiting Mudchute Farm. […]
