As I enter new recipes they will appear on this page.

The photos are snapped in my kitchen just before we eat the food.

Tony has to wait another minute or two!

The only styling is to make it personally appetising. If you find a alternate look is best for you then go ahead.

 

When you are the chef however you cook and present your food is the right way.

 

My aim is to link together as many recipes as possible to illustrate connections and other possibilities.

I will suggest variations and alternatives where practical.

I will use unsual ingredients and may get a bit chefy from time to time. After all showing off is what chefs do!

I hope these momments will intrigue and amuse, have a go if you feel like it.
