Blinis aren’t hard to make so why do they only get served at posh parties? These ones are made with three types of creme fraiche.
My version of Toblerone cookies. Wonderfully sinful and great dunked in a cuppa, you’ll be reluctant to share them with friends!
I have a go at making some beautiful biscuits from the new Biscuiteers Book of Iced Biscuits
These crab balls made with seafood sticks make a great a cheap eat for a snack or starter. They are especially delicious when served with some spicy chilli sauce.
A few years ago my friend Kyo took me to a chinese takeaway in Fratton (the type I usualy despise with yellow and red signs) that served sesame chips. They must have been pretty good seeing as they’ve stuck in mind! I created my own “shoestring fries” version but oven baked them and added some chilli to spice things up a bit.
I’ve been completely inspired this week to make my own gyoza dumplings after spending the weekend with my Can-asian friend Kim, who taught me how to put them together. She told me how her mum likes to make chicken dumplungs but it’s hard to find chicken mince over here. I decided I’d have a go at chopping up a couple of chicken breasts really finely, it seems the results paid off!
My mum made these a few times when I was child – quail egg’s are the perfect size. I’ve been using locally sourced Debbie and Andrew’s Harrogate 97% pork sausages as my sausagemeat, it’s great quality and reasonably priced.
We’ve packed away the decorations and laid the Christmas songs to rest for another year, but what’s left in your fridge? Admittedly, I didn’t have the stilton left in the fridge, it was on the clearance shelf at the supermarket and I do so love blue cheese!
