Balsamic vinegar, occasionally shortened to balsamic, is a very dark, concentrated, and intensely flavoured vinegar originating in Italy
Balsamic vinegar, occasionally shortened to balsamic, is a very dark, concentrated, and intensely flavoured vinegar originating in Italy, made wholly or partially from grape must. Grape must is freshly crushed grape juice with all the skins, seeds and stems.
I came across this recipe for a tofu, balsamic glaze, strawberries and pasta and just had to try it. It was delicious though we did need to make a few changes to the salad. My first was to use a spelt pasta that has a fantastic taste and texture. The second was to added onion powder to the...
This dish is easy to assemble and cooks in 35 minutes. For me, the use of dry sherry is essential here - it adds a subtle ‘nutty’ dimension and depth of flavour. The result is deliciously sweet, savoury and addictive. You need to serve this with potatoes to soak up the the ‘gravy’. The...

As we all know back in the day there were no fridges and freezers in homes certainly not in Napoli! So this is centuries old, I make rarely, maybe twice a year. because of the amount of beef it can last for ages and the marinade that the meat soaks preserves the meat. You will...
Its a tried and tested trio which has a pleasingly alliterated title: deliciously creamy burrata with intense balsamic and earthy sweet beetroot. The finger lime ‘caviar’ adds refreshing bursts of acidity. Serve as a simple starter. I’m not prescribing quantities of ingredients for this recipe...

700 g mixed varieties of large and small tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
½ tsp caster sugar
125 ml olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

This is a simple enough recipe which produces a very tasty result. The balsamic adds a lovely sweet tang to the chicken. In fact it surprised me how effective such a short marinating time can be. The recipe states cooking on a grill for 1-2 minutes either side or until cooked through. I used a...

1 cup fresh blackberries
1/8 cup finely diced sweet onion or shallot
1/4 cup Dijon mustard (recipe below if you want to make your own or use purchased)
I figure it is about time to post some of my own recipes.
I am so NOT a sweet tooth, so I minimize the amounts of sugars I add to mains. Instead of brown sugar, I prefer the punch that maple syrup adds - besides I live in Maple Syrup country, and plan to tap a few trees next year. But there...

Burrata is a new kid on the block here in the UK and aside from specialist markets in London, the only place I can get it is from Ocado (on-line supermarket). So what is it? Its a fresh Italian cheese (burrata means 'buttered' in Italian). It looks a bit like mozzarella but when you cut into it...
