Having eaten some beautiful Moroccan food at Tagine Zhor recently, I thought I’d give it a go myself. Mt Greedy also bought me a beautiful tagine for my birthday that I haven’t had a chance to use yet, so I wanted to use it and make him a delicious dinner.
We’ve really enjoyed our bank holiday weekend, having spent Saturday in Southsea for Victorious festival. We met some friends beforehand, and stopped in to Monty’s, a small cocktail bar near where the festival was taking place.
Recently we visited Bath for the day, and spent the day shopping, sightseeing, eating and drinking far too many cocktails.
OK – I’ll have to come clean with this one. This idea is definitely a rip off from a local restaurant. I saw it on their menu some time ago, and I kept thinking about making it. I recently bought a bulb of black garlic so couldn’t resist giving it a whirl!
I love cooking steaks as a treat. My go to sauce is normally a red wine sauce, or occasionally a flavoured butter. Recently, I thought I’d give classic peppercorn sauce a go.
I’ve recently been cooking a lot with guinea fowl, as it’s so juicy and full of flavour. I traditionally have pan roasted the breast, but the leg has so much meat on it that I wanted to find a way to make it the star of the show.
Another recent obsession of mine is black garlic, so this recipe combines them perfect. Use ordinary garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar as an alternative if you can get your hands on any, but believe me – it’s worth it!
We always seem to find ourselves with leftover vegetables to use up, but the most popular is definitely potatoes. There are so many potato side dishes to make, but in this curry it’s one of the stars of the show. Vegetarian, cheap and very tasty!
I served mine with pilau rice and shop-bought naan bread, but you can quickly and easily make chapatis to go with this. The recipe is coming soon….
