Winter has come and gone. We now wait in anticipation for spring to show its lovely face, bringing with it rays of much needed sunshine and crisp morning air. The chills still linger on however, so one must still nourish the soul with creamy comforts whenever one is able to indulge. This is my first time making Beef Stroganoff and it came out amazing. Super easy, super tasty.

Welcome one and all to my very first food post from Ireland. Feeling very happy and in spite of the obvious startup hiccups here and there, we are settling in very nicely. Ireland is well known for their lamb so here I present a dish using 100% Irish lamb mince, using it to make this intensely flavourful Indian curry.

Everybody loves those Swedish meatballs they serve up in IKEA stores … c’mon, admit it! Yummy meatballs smothered in their signature brown gravy … mmm! But what to do if you don’t live near an IKEA or cannot be bothered queuing up for a plate of these delectable treats? Well, make them yourself of course. I did, and they came out really well.

Kheema Mater is a rich minced mutton dish cooked with peas in a wonderfully savoury gravy and it comes straight out of the royal kitchens of the great Mughal dynasty. While a large portion of India observes a purely vegetarian diet, those living in the north in particular relish rich meaty dishes cooked to perfection in creamy sauces. Many of these dishes were influenced by the Muslim rulers of the time, and obviously if it’s feeding the king, then it’s got to be good-eats.

Hurrah! Cold weather has finally come! I love fall temperatures as this usually means I can start making stews and thick soups for dinner again. Today I made a really simple beef stew, baked it for 4-hours and then topped it with puff pastry ~ that’s dinner sorted for us. This size pie can feed two people for a couple of days or a family of six quite comfortably.

We are going full-on British this morning with a heaving plate of breakfast goodies, as we sit and await the verdict of the Scottish referendum for independence. The boyfriend and I are sticking with the union, hence the breakfast fry up in a show of support for team GB. I wonder what No. 10 is serving up for breakfast this morning.

Pides are Turkish-style pizzas, filled with all manner of savoury fillings. They are a popular street food and can easily be made at home using pizza dough. I don’t have the exact recipe for a traditional pide dough so I simply used pizza dough for this recipe. Very delicious and great for parties and picnics. In this post I have made a vegetarian and a meat filling.

Osso buco is a rustic Italian dish made by braising veal shanks over a long period of time. The meat turns luxuriously fork tender and the bone marrow gets all gooey in the center. I have been meaning to feature this dish on my blog for ages, and so finally, here it is. This is my contemporary version of a Milanese classic, served over a mound of white bean puree.
