Smooth Cranberry Sauce

This cranberry sauce is sweet and tart, packed with festive flavours - orange, cinnamon and ginger. It's a perfect condiment or a side dish served with cheese, meat such as chicken, goose, duck. It's also a must to top off Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner. The cranberry sauce is very easy to cook at home and can be made of frozen or fresh fruits however, cranberries are in season so can be easily found at grocery shops at the moment. I prefer my sauce smooth which is actually a cranberry relish. Find the recipe here...

Battered Mackerel with Pickled Onions, Broad Beans and Garden Peas Salad

Mackerel is great – extremely tasty, nutritious and packed with minerals and good fish oil. It’s usually eaten smoked, sometimes baked but less often battered and fried. Battered fresh mackerel fillets are delicious, no worse than cod or haddock fillets. They should be sold at the local fish and chips shops with fries, tartare sauce and peas because they make a wonderful British classic. This mackerel fried coated with fresh batter is an excellent rendition of a popular meal. I serve it with Mexican pickled onions, homemade tartar sauce and pulses salad. Find the recipe here...

Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Picota Cherries and Red Wine Sauce

This is basic homemade ice cream, very simple and natural. It’s a silky, luscious and classic custard-based treat, ideal for any accompaniment - chocolate, caramel, peanut butter. I enjoy Sweet Cream Ice Cream topped with fresh fruits or fresh fruits sauces because its natural sweetness makes a perfect combination with the semi-sour taste of fruits and both create an ideal contrast of flavours. This simple Sweet Cream Ice Cream can also make a fancy dessert, just needs elegant company – Picota Cherry and Red Wine Sauce. Find the recipe here…

Picota Cherries and Red Wine Sauce

I've chosen Picota cherries to make this delicious sauce. They are sweet, firm and have the unique flavour that comes from their stones and easily blends with red dry wine and spices – cinnamon, clove and lemon grass. The sauce is reasonably sweet but very aromatic and the combination of these ingredients makes it very elegant.  It’s great served with chocolate cakes and panna cotta, perfect as a topping over cream or vanilla homemade ice cream, for any fancy dessert you may think of.  One of my favourite things to make with Picota cherries lately.
