    Recipe Tuna Carpaccio Salad, Fusion-Style

    We are taking some good ideas from an Italian approach and a Japanese approach. I made this as a small luncheon plate rather than a full-blown main dish. Use sushi-grade yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares). Bluefin tuna (T. maccoyii, T. thynnus, T. orientalis) are endangered; and white...

    Recipe Black Sesame Seed and Peppercorn Encrusted Seared Tuna Steaks

    Black Sesame Seed and Peppercorn Encrusted Seared Tuna Steaks This was last night's dinner for two! It was quite delicious, and oh so simple to prepare. I used black sesame seeds but a mix of white and black seeds would be fine, or whatever you prefer. The tuna steaks were marinated in a...

    Recipe Baba Ganoush

    We used to have a gas cooker (rings and oven) which made this slightly easier, but now only have electric. There are still ways around the issues for charring the aubergines, you just have to get creative. You can use a blow torch, you can use a barbeque, you can use a camping stove, or you...

    Recipe Homemade Tahini

    With experimentation, I have established that if you are after a really smooth tahini, you need to be using white sesame seeds. Unhulled, brown sesame seeds will give you a slightly grainer, more bitter tahini as will black sesame seeds (obviously these will give you a black tahini). So bare...

    Recipe Deep Fried Hard Boiled Egg in a Chickpea Flour batter

    I was thinking about a beer batter recipe for wrapping a hardboiled egg into. But I came across a problem. We didn't have any beer plus it was a week night and we don't generally drink during the week - the remaining beer would have needed to be consumed before you ask! So I decided to...

    Sesame oil

    I recently bought a bottle of sesame oil for an Asian dish I was making and the oil looks and smells amazing when it is in the pan. I would like to use it for other dishes, but do not have much experience with this kind of oil. What do you use sesame oil for?
