Grilled Lamb cutlets, New season Potatoes, Asparagus and Beernaise sauce. For me Spring conjures up a host of golden daffodils. New born foals in the fields. Sorry I got a little carried away there. Spring is the season of renewal and there are lots of fresh exciting things to cook and eat. This recipe includes four of mine so is pretty much a winner. Lamb, asparagus, delicious Jersey potatoes and a beer flavoured sauce. Yum.
Happy Easter ( Creature ) Cupcakes. By now you will know as a family we love a great cupcake. Baking with my daughters they are both easy and fun to make. The rich chocolate sponge is a great base to be creative on and this bake we really went to town.
Moules à la Normande are a variation of the classic Moules marinière using the cider produced in the region. Some recipes use mushrooms and some bacon which is how I like mine. We have a long tradition of cider making in the Channel Islands. For my recipe I am using La Robeline Cider. Since 2005 Richard and Sarah Matlock have been producing a ‘champagne’ style cider. Using a vintage French cider press shipped over from Normandy.
Seasonal Eating – Great recipe ideas to cook this February. After a really long slog January 2023 is finally behind us. The days are slowly beginning to lengthen and we can look forward to the early signs of spring. So what to eat? Well it’s definitely still time for lots of hearty dishes. My type of cooking. Lots of sustainable, seasonal soups and stews and proper puddings. But February is also time for some indulgent cooking for a loved one on St Valentines Day. Flipping up piles of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and perhaps even relaxing with a glass or two to celebrate Global Wine Day.
