Recipe of the Week: Korean Beef Short Ribs

Korean Beef Short Ribs

You may not have cooked with short ribs before, but this recipe is well worth a try.

 

When it was made at the photoshoot all the stylists working at the studio that day requested the recipe.

And for people who work with food and top food photographers every day that’s high praise indeed!

Autumn Traditions

Hedgehog in Autumn

We all enjoy Christmas traditions, but I suspect that many of us have our own autumn traditions too.


Seasonal changes and events are an integral part of our countryside and also the British psyche.

As a child apple-bobbing was a ubiquitous game at each of every one of my birthday parties. I’m not sure if any of us enjoyed it that much but, well, it was tradition!

Bobbing Apples Cake

Nowadays, I am far more tempted by the Apple-Bobbing Cake from the 2020 Dairy Diary.

The autumn season usually begins with the packing away of summer clothes and the polishing of boots. The flame-coloured foliage and walks in the crisp autumn sunshine is, in my opinion, ones of life’s greatest joys.

And I relish the time when we have candles lit in an evening. It creates cosiness like nothing else.

 

When the clocks change, we rush to my parents’ house in the hope of seeing one of their prickly nocturnal visitors.

They often have a procession of hedgehogs eager to stock up on mealworms before their winter sleep.

Unlike the hedgehog, our slow cooker comes out of hibernation and resides on the kitchen worktop in October. Sundays see the aroma of many offerings from said gadget.

One of our new favourites is the ox cheeks recipe from the next Dairy Diary. It’s so flavourful and just melts-in-the-mouth. You can cook it in the oven too.

Great British Pea Week

Great British Pea Week

Did you know there is a whole week dedicated to peas?

Great British Pea Week

Can you imagine sausage and mash without peas or a spring evening without pea and mint soup, or a goat’s cheese salad without a scattering of freshly podded peas? Peas are the champions of the vegetable world!

Pea shoots are relative new-comers to our salad bowls. Pea shoots have delectable leaves and tendrils and, unsurprisingly, taste like peas. These lovely little shoots make a delicious salad and work equally served with freshly steamed or pan-fried fish.

And they are very easy to grow.

So easy that my eight-year-old grew (and ate) on her windowsill, a miniature garden full in just a couple of weeks.

They grow very well on the kitchen sill next to your other herbs; simply purchase a packet of pea shoot seeds, soak in water, add to a tray of compost and just watch them grow!

Try this mouthwatering salad from the Dairy Diary.
