When Pete and I moved from London to a small village close to Abergavenny at the start of 2019, one of the cuisines we really missed was Turkish. In our old home in North Finchley, London we had easy access to several excellent Turkish restaurants which we visited often! After moving, although we enjoyed the Turkish food we were able to find locally, neither the breadth of their menu (though they offer a more extensive menu now than back in 2019) nor the size of their portions matched our London favourites, even though what we ate was good and tasty. When Anatolian Turkish Restaurant set up s ..read more

“Taiwanese food, that’s basically the same as Chinese, isn’t it?” That’s the refrain I heard from quite a few people when we planned our two holidays to Taiwan. The answer is “yes and no“, but that “no” is no small thing at all. Yes, a large swathe of Taiwanese cuisine has similarity to Chinese dishes (though there are many divergences that have evolved over time), but there are several other major influences, not least of which is the food of indigenous peoples who inhabited Taiwan for at least five millennia. (A brief history!) There are signs of human habitation on Taiwan that go back tens ..read more

Kavey Eats
by kaveyeats
2M ago
A joint of beef cooked slowly in a braising liquid of beef stock, red wine and Pedro Ximinez sherry with whole shallots, sliced onions and carrots makes a perfect winter warmer and also fits the bill whenever you’re seeking comfort. This recipe can be served two ways: cook the beef joint until it’s tender but retains its shape so you can serve it in slices alongside a gravy made from the cooking liquid, or leave it in the slow cooker a while longer until you can shred the meat easily and mix it into the liquid for a homely stew. We recommend a good quality joint of beef, such as the 28 days d ..read more

Vietnamese Vegetarian by Uyen Luu follows on from her two previous books Vietnamese: Simple Vietnamese Food to Cook at Home and My Vietnamese Kitchen. I looked through both of these very beautiful books when they first came out but as a vegetarian, I found that even those recipes that looked as though they might be vegetarian often contained fish sauce and other non-vegetarian ingredients. Indeed the author has said herself that “fish sauce is the staple of Vietnamese cooking”, so I was very excited to see that Luu had written a vegetarian book because I wanted to see whether it was possible t ..read more
