My wife's mom found a market with fresh corn, and she asked my wife how much corn she wanted. I thought I heard her say that she wanted a dozen ears of corn, but I misheard her. She said she wanted two dozen ears of corn. Obviously, she likes corn, but she clearly didn't think things through. My...
One of my favorites. Pretty easy to make, though it does take some skill in the baking department. But easy to impress with if your guests are the type that will try anything.
For the dough:
175g white flour
45 ml grated parmesan cheese
1 egg yolk
For the onion filling:
450 g red...
Vegetable Soup with Burrata
Serves 6-8 | Preparation and cooking time ~60 min (+ 8-12 hours if soaking and cooking the beans)
I have to back up with my previous argument that tomatoes and fatty dairy products don’t go well together (except in pizzas and cheese-topped tomato tarts). Butter and...
One for the recipe challenge. My version of Nigella Lawsons pasta alla Bruno. Her version is very basic, containing only cherry tomatoes, garlic, bacon and optional mozzarella.
Mine contains those ingredients, but I swapped mozzarella for burrata and I added an onion, chilli flakes, and...
If you decide to make this, ask your houseguests if they have ever had duck liver pate. If they say no, tell them, “then you are in for a treat!” You aren’t technically lying, because you didn’t say “this is duck liver pate”. And, you've just brightened their day because they get to tell their...
As far as I'm concerned, tomato soup should always be made with basil. I almost posted this as tomato soup, but tomato basil soup sounds more exotic. My wife’s uncle grows tomatoes…so many that he can’t eat them all. They’re incredibly tasty, but we can rarely finish using them in salads and...

This is an easy, versatile dish with an intriguing and complex taste. The fennel seeds accentuate the slight anise taste of the basil and the anchovy provides a savoury background note. You could make this with good quality tinned chopped tomatoes, such as San Marzano. I served it with some...
These crab cakes are very easy to make and fast to cook. I used vegan basil mayonnaise but you could replace this with ready made mayo. You could also substitute green courgettes for the yellow. I served this as a starter.
Ingredients (makes 4 small cakes)
240g crab meat
2 tbsp finely...
