Hang Fire Smokehouse Announce Cookbook Deal!

This isn’t breaking news.  I’m certain that many of you already know but I am still thrilled to share this news with you.  Anybody that has read my blog would know that Hang Fire Smokehouse are incredible.  They were voted ‘Best Street Food’ by the BBC, launched Wales’ first craft soda and obviously cook the most incredible Barbecue food – you should do anything they can to go and eat their food.  However, I realise that this is not always possible and so the announcement that they are releasing their very own cookbook is incredibly exciting.  Now you can cook their food at home!   Continue reading Hang Fire Smokehouse Announce Cookbook Deal!

Cooking: Whisky Beef Burgers with Red Onion Chutney.

Today I fancied beef burgers and so I made some.  I was also in a more experimental mood that usual so decided to try something a little different.  At least for me anyway.  Whisky!  Today I cooked Whisky beef burgers with red onion, red onion chutney and gouda cheese in a brioche bun. Continue reading Cooking: Whisky Beef Burgers with Red Onion Chutney.

Hokkei: Peking Duck Baos and Rice Noodle Salad

Recently, I had the great opportunity to try something new.  Hokkei.  A new twist on the traditional Chinese takeaway, Hokkei serves Hong Kong inspired food, utilising authentic ingredients and innovative cooking techniques in order to deliver the best dishes possible.

The chefs, Larking and Dale, were both in fact MasterChef competitors and through the show became good friends.  Armed with the know-how and passion for cooking, they decided to open a Chinese takeaway with a difference.  No “Untraceable and unethical ingredients, low quality, stodgy food and sloppy service”.  Surely their food must be brilliant right?

Street Food Warehouse: Cardiff

Street food.  We all love it and the thought of visiting London for the chance to try the extensive range of street food that it has to offer is an exciting one.  Unfortunately, the practicalities of doing that can sometimes make it difficult.  I live in Wales and although I would love to go, travelling to London would be expensive.  For my regular street food fix, it is simply not an option.

For those of you in Wales and in similar circumstances, I have good news!

Lets Play a Game: ‘Fantasy Restaurant Menu’

A bit of fun today.  Nothing too serious 🙂

Now and again I drift off into my own little world.  My imagination runs wild and the world is for the taking.  Suddenly I can imagine a life where I can make all my dreams come true! Start my own business, write a book, travel the world or cook something so incredible that people queue hours to eat at my restaurant.  Perhaps it’s hope more than anything but I think we all have these moments and it’s great!  At least I hope so or I am starting to sound very strange.  Our imagination makes everything possible so why not right?

Well today I had one of these moments.  It started with me just thinking about what I fancied to eat.  Then I thought about what I might have if I could have anything I liked.  Doesn’t matter where from or who cooked it….  I could ask for it and it would be here.  I had trouble choosing and so I started to think about what it would be like if I could eat all my favourite food, everything I have ever tried and loved or am yet to try in one place.  One unbelievable, mouth watering and perfect restaurant.

Sounds great right?!  I bet your starting to think about what you would choose right now.
