Smoked + Wild Garlic Mac and Cheese

Wild garlic season is just about upon us. Over the next couple of months you’ll clock your favourite food lovers slathering wild garlic pesto on anything and everything, swapping tips on socials and point blank refusing to divulge the best spots for foraging. If you’re local and curious, feel free to drop me a message and I’ll let you know a couple of good spots – failing that, Riverford often include wild garlic in their veg boxes (which I whole heartedly recommend) at this time of year. If you can’t find smoked garlic – I got mine in Big Tesco – regular will do just fine. This recipe serves just one because I am still! Constantly! Alone! But if you’re not similarly afflicted, go ahead and double/triple the amounts at your leisure. It’s on the saucy side, so you might even be OK to just double the pasta and leave the sauce as is if you’re cooking for two and don’t share my decadence or gluttony. Serves 1 75g pasta (whatever your fav is)2 tbsp …

Around the World in 80 Dates | The Bahamas

Around the World in 80 Dates is a blog series designed to take me (and Tom) out of our comfort zones and force us to cook food from other countries. Each week, we use a random country generator to tell us where we will be cooking from. We have to cook at least one dish from this country, the more traditional the better. We alternate who’s cooking each week, this week is Tom’s turn. I said it last week, but I’ll reiterate because this is worth saying twice: trying to cook vegan while trying to cook from other cultures ain’t easy. The wiki page for most cuisines is just a long list of animals. Bahamian cuisine is no different, it’s incredibly rich in seafood and pork. Like, incredibly incredibly. It being Tom’s turn to direct the operation this week, it was he that had to trawl the internet for a suitable recipe. He discovered swiftly enough that macaroni cheese is a huge mainstay of the Bahamian dinner table, ever present for weeknight meals and buffet …

The Union at The Gladstone, Brighton, Review

Review | Union Grill at The Gladstone

Guys I’m really sorry that I only ever review takeaway restaurant food, I promise that this year I will start eating out more and taking pictures in daylight every now and then that don’t completely suck. I figure you’d rather know about these places and cope with the fact that not all my blog posts are pornos than not know about them at all, right? I’ll do better, I’m working on it, bear with me. The Gladstone is one of my favourite pubs in Brighton for its gorgeous garden (the place to be on a sunny afternoon) and not horrifically busy or slow bar. It’s a diamond in the rough-around-the-edges vibe Lewes Road has held on to that London Road has been desperately trying to escape these past few years. Despite it being a lovely place to pop down to, I didn’t actually leave my threshold to finally give Union Grill a try.. There were three reasons for this: 1 – It was Monday. 2 – Deliveroo had very kindly given me £20 credit so that I …
