Forage for Flavour!

Standard

Back on the beach, tide not out. Never the less some Sea Beet leaves, Wild Fennel, three cornered garlic, and Pennywort  were picked. sea-beet-aspects

Most people in the UK. walk past some amazing free greens in the winter, straight to the supermarket. Plastic bags filled with gas to make the contents last longer.

With many of us poor, not so healthy and a planet that is looking similar. It’s a no brainer! What I picked is in abundance! I seriously needed the exercise! The end results of cooking are superb! Great flavour and lots of nutrients.

Sprout Bhajis

Standard

This is a work in progress. First try after reading about them in Manchester, via http://bundobust.com/ seriously cool food and drink. Amazingly I couldn’t taste the sprouts, in the ones I made, spice was nice though. Bhajis take longer to cook than I thought. I will cook them until they are darker next time. 180 degrees is what you want, a doughy interior is what you dont want. Other recipes call for shaping the mixture, not mine, I like the rough look, with crunchy exterior. My recipe was totally vegan. Seriously go eat at Bundobust.com Manchester or Leeds.sbhaji

Afflecks Palace Manchester- lots of cool things in this market

Manc is on the up.


Wahaca– Good Food and Cocktails, nice vibe

Goose Dislikes “Presso”, seriously overpriced not very good. I’ve had better pizza from a supermarket. The calzone looked like something from Greggs.
“Nandos”, boring again supermarkets offer better.

London/Blackpool/Lake District

Now that is an Ice Cream!

Now that is an Ice Cream!

Amazing times. Megabus is the only way I can do this sort of travel. Much as I want J.C. running things will megabus still exist under his rule?
Highlight of London was Gunpowder at Spitalfields what a find. Highlight of Blackpool was the company, plus the ice cream. Nice curry, but Gunpowder was still fixed in my mind. Highilight of the Lake district? All of it! Amazing scenery, it’s been so long. The best beer I have had since I was running a bar. Jennings served from Wateredge Inn was stunning! Big Thanks to the drivers and lovely hospitality as ever!
Bowness Lake District Fish and Chips really good another great find!
Streetfeast allways delivers, Winerama is a must!
Now that is a pint of beer!

Now that is a pint of beer!

You Doughnut is also a must!
If you get the chance to eat in Shakeshack London, don’t! Its really gone down hill since my first visit, when it opened. Service is OK burger was not amazing. Fries were Cold, second batch given free were warm on top and cold below. I got a free concrete for my troubles, a mc Flurry is as good as possibly better?
YHA Bolsover Road was cool. Dover Street Apartments were excellent, basic clean cheap quiet, very good service. Premier Inn was again really good, don’t bother with the food though.

Cauliflower/Paneer/Pea Curry, with homemade flatbread.

Standard
Meat Free!

Meat Free!

Viva Pataks!
Curry paste, onion, ginger, garlic, water, Cauliflower, Paneer, frozen Peas, chilli powder, natural yogurt.
Brown the paneer first then remove it. Then fry the onion to light brown, then add garlic ginger cook until soft add chili powder fry for a minuet. Now add cauliflower and paste fry for a few minuets, add water a little at a time until cauliflower is cooked but still firm add peas and paneer cook until peas are done and paneer is warmed through. Now stir in the yogurt, until warmed. Season to taste.
If you have it, chopped mint or coriander or wild garlic or chives all go well on top or stirred though just before serving.
*Paneer is very cheap cost me £1 reduced from £1:50 from Tesco’s. Asian shops are probably even cheaper. Meera Sodha does a great chilli Paneer seek her books out, seriously good ! http://meerasodha.com/
