Butternut Bisque – To Roast or Not to Roast

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) That is the question, and for me the answer depends on what else is on the menu besides this delicious butternut bisque. When you roast butternut, you caramelize, and concentrate the flesh, and get something sweeter, starchier, and richer, which is perfect if you’re enjoying it as a meal, but maybe not such a great thing if it’s going to be followed by additional courses. The last thing you want when you start a big holiday meal with a soup course are your guests feeling full when they finish. Of course, as with all things food, this is highly …read more

5 Pantry Must-Haves + Recipes

By Erin Alderson More often than not, I sound like a broken record. It doesn’t matter if I’m chatting with a friend or doing an interview. If we are talking about food, I’m talking about my pantry. I love produce and going to the Farmers’ market every week but it wouldn’t be near as exciting if I wasn’t prepared to make dishes from that beautiful produce. This is where the pantry comes into play and there’s nothing better than a well-stocked pantry.
This post is two-fold. The first is to share about my top pantry essentials I think you should have on hand. The …read more

Coffee Curated: The Japanese Wave

By Liza de Guia “The fresh smell of coffee soon wafted through the apartment, the smell that separates night from day.” —Haruki Murakami
The first week of November, Liza and I packed up and went on a three week trip to Japan for her father’s 70th birthday. I hadn’t been to Japan in over a decade, since Thursday last played there. In the intervening years, I had come to appreciate the Japanese culture in a deeper and more serious way than I had on my first visit. Their films, art, literature and food had all become staples of my life. In …read more

Quick and Easy Snowman Lunches

By Grace Hall Today I made quick and easy snowman sandwiches for my boys lunches, to cheer them up over the complete lack of snow in our area at the moment while the rest of the country seems to be blanketed in the white stuff. My youngest has never yet seen snow, so he is desperate to have some this winter, but alas it rarely snows down here near the south coast, we’d have to move north for ‘proper’ snow!
Both boys had really similar lunches today, with just a little bit extra of everything crammed into my older son’s lunch box. They both …read more

Indulge in Castello Extra Creamy Brie

By Karen Burns-Booth Indulge in Castello Extra Creamy Brie – Indulge yourself and hack your senses by enjoying cheese with different music, different colour plates and serving spoons.

I love cheese, and especially Brie, it’s a staple cheese in our house, and is used for cheese platters, in all manner of recipes, as well as for random (and not so random!) snacking……..of all Brie’s characteristics, the one that I love the most, is its mild creaminess and versatility – it’s a cheese that is just as happy sitting in a school lunch box, as it is sat on an antique plate on a dinner …read more

Creamy vegetable and halloumi pie

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche I’m so proud of this creamy vegetable and halloumi pie! It took me a few attempts to get it just right (we ate a lot of pie that week…), but I’m so happy with how it turned out. Crispy pastry, a luxuriously creamy sauce, plenty of colourful veggies, and soft chunks of salty halloumi cheese – it’s honestly my ultimate dinner. Just the kind of thing to indulge in at this time of year!

Harrods Christmas Hamper: The Harrogate

By Sus Davy My review of the Harrods Christmas Hamper: The Harrogate
Over the years, I have managed to acquire some rather nice hampers. I love their wicker look and they make great storage options. But mostly, I like what the often contain – food!

They have a vast selection on their website, and I would be reviewing ‘The Harrogate’ – a generous hamper with an enormous selection of indulgent treats, perfect for Christmas time and festive evenings.

By Irvin If you’re looking for the best cookbooks of 2017, here’s the first part of a list of cookbooks I loved from a cookbook obsessed man!

You all know I’m OBSESSED with cookbooks right? I think it’s a running joke with my partner AJ, where whenever the doorbell rings, he’s automatically turns to me and says “It’s for you. I predict more cookbooks…” and he’s usually right. Our tiny apartment is pretty much packed to the gills with books and I recently bought to new LIFE CHANGING bookcases to get some of the cookbooks off my desk.
