Fischmarkt, Hamburg

Fischmarkt Hamburg
Never in my life have I set an alarm for 6.30am to attend a market. Nor have I ever set an alarm for 6.30am to attend a live music gig. Incredibly, on a Sunday of all days, this is a common theme across Hamburg.

Pho, Leicester

I cast my mind back to the opening of Pho in Leicester. A queue stretched as far back as the high street from Shires Lane with expectant diners eagerly anticipating free pho for the opening day. Since then, Pho (pronounced ‘fuh’ or ‘faaah’ if you’re Keith Floyd) has been...
Venison with Chocolate Sauce
A little while back I had some interesting chocolate sent to me by a company called Doisy and Dam. The flavours in the range are truly unique in the sense that each bar contains a superfood, meaning that the chocolate is a lot better for you than most. I...

Chicken Satay Recipe

Pip and Nut Satay
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=N9Q9C6bdSoE In the above video, I mentioned that I was sent a few products from Pip and Nut to try. Pip and Nut are a company specialising in all things nut related, encouraging customers to get creative in the kitchen - I was more than up for that challenge.   I...

Gandarias Jatetxea

Gandarias Jatetxea, San Sebastian
If you have caught the episode of ‘Munchies’ on Youtube where a group of Basque chef’s drag a young reporter around the bars of San Sebastian, you may have heard of Gandarias Jatetxea. Irene, the reporter, ended up losing her battle with Txakoli wine that night. However, we fared...
Coq au Riesling
You didn’t think that it would be just the one recipe, did you? After the success of the ham and goats cheese salad starter it seemed rude not to have a go at a main course. Once again my mind ticked over with thoughts of what could I make...
Le Marche Couvert, Colmar
Colmar does feel like a market town. As we strolled through the town’s enchanting web of cobbled streets, we came across a rather unique market containing livestock and products that the majority of that livestock were destined to end up as. If the cute bunnies and quacking ducks are...
Maison des Têtes, Colmar
  At one of the most famous buildings in Colmar sits an equally famous restaurant. The Maison des Tetes restaurant came to light back in the late 80’s when bon viveur Keith Floyd strode into the kitchen. On that occasion Floyd succeeded in welding a traditional liver dumpling recipe to...
Joe Wicks Thai Beef Stir Fry
Back aboard The Body Coach bandwagon I go. Last year Joe Wicks’ diet, or should I say, lifestyle plan got me in great shape for a trip to Asia - and what a trip it was. Sadly after the trip my old habits emerged and I was pulled back...

Turkey Enchiladas

Turkey Enchiladas
Still (trying) to stick at the new years diet plan I thought that I’d get a bit more creative with matching food that I love to eat with healthier ways of cooking. Also after working out and doing all the other jobs that life throws at me, it had...
12 Hour Smoky Barbecue Rib
So, it’s January in the UK, Storm Eleanor is in full swing and you fancy a barbecue - what do you do about that? Well, I had exactly this problem. After some thought about fancy tricks with my oven or maybe splashing out on an indoor barbecue set up...
