“Accras de Morue” are one of my absolute favourite starters or snacks from the French Caribbean (Antilles), which is where my husband comes from. I’ve been enjoying them since he and I got together, especially on special occasions, they’re actually addictive! I’ve posted a recipe before but this is a revised, better version which I’m hoping you will love.Continue reading “Accras de morue (salt fish fried balls) Recipe”
A couple of days ago I made this spaghetti dish, it turned out so delicious I thought I would share the recipe on here! I would normally opt for egg noodles when cooking with bell peppers and spring onion, but I was curious to see how it would taste with spaghetti. And while big fat red Argentinian prawns are the best choice for this particular dish, if you can’t find any, it also works with king prawns.Continue reading “Red Argentinian shrimp with butter and garlic spaghetti | Recipe”
I’ve been wanting to make carrot cake for a while, but it’s one of those cakes I wasn’t sure I could pull off. After looking up different recipes, I tried my own version a few times, tailored it to my own taste, got my husband to approve it and voilà!
We really enjoyed this cake, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you all.Continue reading “Carrot cake recipe”
Last week I was experimenting with plantain and made these little bites, which are essentially thinly sliced plantain, seasoned and grilled until golden. They tasted so good I decided to post the recipe. This is a lovely idea for an appetiser, amuse-gueule or just another fancy-looking way to present plantain.Continue reading “Plantain bites recipe”
This is a dish I could eat all day everyday without ever getting bored! Very simple to make too.
I made pie for the very first time the other day! It was also the first time I actually had chicken and mushroom pie. Let’s just ignore how amateur-ish the crust looks, I made the puff pastry from scratch and I guess I still have to work on the presentation! But the pie tasted so good I thought it would be selfish not to share the recipe.
Would you believe the only reason why I made lamb today is because my colleague gave out fresh rosemary from her garden? Lamb and mash just had to happen!
I use mango chutney a lot in my cooking. But mango chutney on salmon is my absolute favourite combination. The flavours of the salmon and caramelized spring onion in the chutney are just too awesome not to share. So if you’re looking for a delicious meal idea with very few ingredients, this one is definitely one to try out!
This is a recipe I concocted with while experimenting with curries and stews. I wanted a stew that didn’t take too long to cook, but that still had all the flavours of a hearty and comforting curry with a Caribbean (see ‘Colombo de poulet’ – French Antilles) and Asian fusion (see traditional Chicken curry). If that’s the kind of flavours you’re after, try this recipe and let me know what you think. Continue reading “Sweet pepper and coconut curried chicken stew”
