Malaysian Fish Curry demo by chef Clover

food blog cheshire nantwich

In my last post, I told you all about the fun I had and FOOD I ate at Nantwich Food Festival a couple of weeks ago. Although it was only a fleeting visit, I was lucky enough to get to see a full cookery demonstration.

The recipe? Malaysian fish curry. I couldn’t have been happier with Clover’s choice of recipe to show us. Inspired by my recent travels to Southeast Asia, and especially George Town, Malaysia… I’ve been keen to bring some of those flavours into my own kitchen.  Continue reading “Malaysian Fish Curry demo by chef Clover”

Nantwich Food Festival

Nantwich is such a beautiful market town, and quite a foodie hub, actually. There are a number of nice places to eat there, some lovely coffee shops, and of course, the annual Food Festival.

The festival is free to attend and runs from Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd September.  It’s a weekend full of food, drink and other treats from suppliers all over the country. As I was off on holiday to Malta, I could only attend for a few hours on Friday morning, but I went along to see what was cracking!

Best Veggie Brunch; baked eggs

food blog recipe healthy veggie

This is a super easy, slightly spicy veggie brunch recipe you can rustle up any day of the week.

I’ve been eating a lot less meat over the past few of months. Mainly because I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could eat less meat. But I am actually now really enjoying eating less meat.  I’ve always been a fan of veggie food and eating more veg and less meat actually helps me stay healthy. It’s also a lot cheaper and I feel better for it.  So, so far, so good! Continue reading “Best Veggie Brunch; baked eggs”

Easy Couscous ‘Buddha Bowls’

Buddha bowl is a weird term. Basically, it’s a salad.

It has proteins, vegetables and grains. Much like many salads.

I think the main difference is that they’re more Instagrammable and Pinnable than an average salad.

So, I thought I’d have a go at one, using some basic ingredients I already had in the fridge and store cupboard. Continue reading “Easy Couscous ‘Buddha Bowls’”

Today I’m posting an article I wrote some time ago* for www.tastetoday.co.uk. As Jo needed to free up some space on her site, the article is available again. So as I really enjoyed writing it, I thought I’d re-share it on the blog. Hope you enjoy.

At Taste Today, you know we love good food. Particularly when it’s local, fresh and made with plenty of love. Especially when it’s well located with a bustling atmosphere making it a great place to sit, chat, and chow down. The perfect recipe for good times… we think so. And boy do they roll at Altrincham’s wonderfully renovated Market House.

Chocolate Cherry Protein Bircher

Overnight oats or birchers have become my go-to breakfast. But how do they work? Soaking the oats overnight makes them easier to digest. They’re also low in fat, and are a complex carbohydrate so they release energy slowly throughout the morning. You basically pop all the ingredients in a bowl the night before and enjoy them (eaten cold) the next day… Couldn’t be easier… Continue reading “Chocolate Cherry Protein Bircher”

Eating out at The Bear’s Paw, Sandbach

At home, The Bear’s Paw has always been a bit of a household name. It’s that beautiful pub nestled in the stunning countryside in a quaint village called Warmingham. Down the ‘back lanes’ in the middle of Sandbach and Middlewich, and not too far from Crewe. Continue reading “Eating out at The Bear’s Paw, Sandbach”

Love-yourself, brunch for one

food travel blogger

I recently posted this on my food-porn FILLED Instagram account and asked my beautiful followers if they wanted the recipe.

It proved to be one of my most popular posts that week, so I’m sharing it with you all because I’m such a nice and lovely person. You’re welcome!

Then, pondering a suitable title got me thinking. There is something a little sad about the recipe: it’s only for one. I toyed with ‘Lonely hearts, brunch for one’ but decided that was far too melancholy. Continue reading “Love-yourself, brunch for one”
