  • Romesco Sauce

    March 2011

    I found myself at London Bridge the other day with some time to kill and so I wandered down to Borough Market. It was a Tuesday, so I knew the main market wouldn’t be open but the peripheral shops like Neil’s Yard Dairy, The Ginger Pig and Brindisa would. As soon as you step into […]

  • Saturday Night Takeaway: Wuli Wuli

    March 2011

    [Edit: Menu picture below updated March 2012. To see a larger version go to My Flickr] A while back now I had some mates over and we remembered that Wuli Wuli do takeaway. I’ve been ordering one most Saturday nights since then and it’s so good I thought it might be worth a little reminder […]

    March 2011

Nestled amongst the neon strip-lit sex shops […]

    March 2011

    People do weird and wonderful things to raise money for charity. Consider the idea of living in a shop window with 300 deadly spiders for 3 weeks as an example. Me, I prefer to cook. I’ve Macmillan Coffee Morning-ed and I’ve Big Lunched, now it’s time to crank things up a gear or ten. This […]

  • Candied bacon (and what to do with it)

    March 2011

    Salty pork works very well with sweet stuff. Bacon and maple syrup with pancakes or bacon and onion brioche are both excellent examples. If you can feel that vibe then try candying bacon; it’s really easy and you end up with crisp, sticky, varnished rashers that shine like porcine treasure. It works much better with […]
