Paella l heinstirred.com

I think you have to be pretty brave to publish something like a Paella recipe. Somehow you will be doing or adding something that someone somewhere will deem to be wrong and a sacrilege. But since I am not Spanish I guess I can take a liberty or two. Even if it means they will not allow me to enter the country when I next want to visit. And then I still have to mention I used a premixed Paella…

Watermelon Carpaccio l heinstirred.com

This is one of those combinations that is a bit out of the ordinary but I think it works really well. The play of salty and sweet has been around for a long time, made even more popular with the salted caramel trend. And this Watermelon Carpaccio is a spin on the trend, well suited for al fresco lunches and dinners as we enjoy the last few weeks of summer. Here I combine the sweetness of the watermelon with the…

One of my pet hates are ingredients added to recipes just to be different without much regard for what it actually tastes like. I am aware that these Tequila Ribs could be one of those recipes.

But as those slow cooked meals are more suited for leisurely weekend cooking I still crave the comfort of good, wholesome and tasty food during the week. I think this Baked Polenta ticks all…

When I have a working weekend coming up the only thing that cheers me up (and keeps me secure) is knowing that there will be something slow roasting or stewing in the background providing sustenance for the weekend. Some oxtail or a curry that improves as the weekend passes. Or a slow roasted pork joint that just falls apart at the touch. A bit of pre-planning is worth it as I do think the effort of letting a pork roast…

I must admit that making terrines are not that high up the list but after watching an Australian Masterchef challenge and dealing with a two week long pork belly craving I was quite keen to get my knife sharpened, debone and skin a chicken and get stuck in. (This post is not vegetarian friendly!) This recipe is from Maggie Beer and I am thrilled with the results. The addition of herbs and zest adds a wonderful flavour, the raisins add a…
