I’ve just found this sinful but heavenly Valentine’s Day menu on the bbc.co.uk food website. It’s been compiled using recipes by James Martin, a regular ‘celebrity’ chef who broadcasts across the BBC network.
His romantic recipes strike the right balance between simple flavours and extra special touches. Each dish is easy to prepare, quick to cook, and light enough to leave room for dessert.
Sadly it looks like this link may have been removed! I’ll investigate and try and find an alternative. However until then you can purchase ‘The Adobo Road Cookbook’ by Marvin Galputos via the link below:
We were sorting through the freezer this weekend working out what was stored in there and doing a bit of a rationalisation. I saw a bag of raw Pumpkin that had been saved this years Halloween ‘Jack O Lantern’. and wondered what I could do with it, maybe a Spiced Pumpkin soup or something more exotic. Sam and Sam Clarke at Moro, a Southern Mediterranean restaurant in London’s East End had a recipe for Jewelled Pumpkin Rice in their Moro East Cookbook, which looked stunning and defiantly one to try. The muted golds and yellow with the warming middle eastern spices are evocative of holidays in the North African side of the Med. The recipe can be found here.
Not that Mr T!
