    Recipe Mushroom, Shallot & Chestnut Parcels

    This is a dinner party or Christmas Day meal. It is pretty much totally based on this recipe on the Waitrose website, but it's not the original source for my version which I don't recall having sun-dried tomato paste but chopped sun-dried tomatoes in it. I think was a recipe from the BBC Good...

    Recipe Poppy Seed Strudel

    I wasn't going to post this because frankly, it went rather wrong. I think I possibly used too much filling so it oozed out and also made the middle rather soggy. Anyway, as I took the photos I thought I'd post it anyway in case anyone cares to have a go at improving on it. Ingredients 5...

    Recipe Sardine Filo Parcels with Pickled Lemon

    Easy to make and very fishy tasting! These parcels make a good snack. I used dill in the filling as it was all I had in terms of green herbs but I think the delicate dill taste was rather overpowered. Parsley or coriander might be a better choice. Ingredients (makes 3) 3 sheets of filo...

    Recipe Aubergine, Pepper and Anchovy Filo Tian

    This is a little fiddly to make but not at all difficult. The filo strips stick nicely to the aubergine and peppers so there is no need for a mould. I served it as a starter. For a vegan version you could substitute sun dried tomatoes or capers for the anchovy. Ingredients (makes 2 to 3...

    Recipe Roquefort and Spinach Filo Tart

    Roquefort and spinach is a lovely combination. I added some toasted almonds and soaked raisins for a slightly middle Eastern twist. Soaking the raisins in Martini adds a bittersweet herbal note - but you could use a different aromatic alcohol or orange juice. Use a loose bottom tart tin...
