    Recipe My Cult Lunch: Szechuan-style Cold Peanut Noodles

    I made a slightly toned down version for our café, but I think I can trust you to not be afraid of a little bit of heat. And garlic. And sour. After the first time I made this dish, it was a big enough hit that we still offer it as a weekly special every Friday. It's sold out by lunch and has...

    Cold / Bad Weather Camping?

    Curious how cold / inclement weather has been that people have camped outdoors in? (In a tent, NOT in an RV or the like). I often go to an annual gathering each Columbus Day / Indigenous Peoples Day (the second weekend in October) in New York state. The weather has ranged from balmy to...

    Looking for a nice way to cook cod

    I have a cod loin and I'm trying to decide how to cook it. Usually just bake it with some butter and seasonings but a bit boring. I have some parsley and coriander. Maybe a herb crust? Would I do it in a pan and then finish in the oven? How do I stop the crust falling off. I also have a...

    Recipe Chilled Avocado and Coconut Soup

    We've just had another of those really hot days and combined with the smoke problems, I've not been too well or able to do much at all. So when hubby spotted this recipe I thought why not? After all, the only thing that needed cooking was the brown rice and I could use the microwave for that...

    Recipe Borscht (cold)

    I have to say that this recipe looks amazing when served. The colour is fantastic and the texture spot on. But I am a little disappointed by the lack of flavours coming through. Perhaps it was the fact that I was lacking in fresh beetroot? My weight was just under the 500g required and my...

    Recipe Cold Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage Soup

    And another in the series of cold soups that I have been exploring this summer due to the hot weather we have been experiencing. This is actually a very nice and refreshing soup that is easy to eat despite the weather. It is so nice and easy that we are actually making it again. One thing I will...

    Recipe Gazpacho

    I have something of a confession to make. I've never, ever had the traditional cold Spanish soup, gazpacho. That's the truth. Never. So given the current hot summer temps (39°C today) and my general lack of enthusiasm to easy anything even vaguely warm in such temperatures, we have been working...
