Pairings | Brunch
Wheat beers are fabulously flexible when it comes to food matching - the beer world’s equivalent of a crisp white wine.
If you're planning ahead for Easter weekend and don't fancy doing the traditional big Easter Day lunch how about a brunch instead? Here's my menu for this time of year ...
A fresh, zesty citrus-based punch that’s packed with vitamin C. It obviously tastes best if you squeeze the fruit yourself but bought freshly squeezed juice is fine if you’re short of time.
Oxford is a place that doesn’t have a great reputation for food but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the restaurants we ate in last weekend.
This week I went to a great event at Korean restaurant Jinjuu in Soho called Girls can Grill where four female chefs proved they were masters - or should that be mistresses? - of barbecue.
My friend cookery writer Sarah Randell has written the most enchanting book on marmalade full not only of great marmalade recipes but also some delicious ways of using them.
Have you noticed the number of restaurants which have started offering breakfast - and I don’t just mean a full English?
It's easy to get into a rut with egg recipes but if you're making brunch for friends this weekend try this delicious Moroccan egg dish from Nargisse Benkabbou's charming new book Casablanca: my Moroccan Food which gives a modern twist to traditional Moroccan cuisine.
You might think the idea of eating bacon and egg with good claret is sacrilege but bear with me.
If ever a bit of hygge was needed it’s this week so what better way to cheer yourself up than to bunker down with a few delicious Norwegian style waffles from my friend Signe Johansen’s lovely new book How to Hygge.
Soft drinks don’t often feature in my weekly pairings but this combination of an inventive savoury breakfast waffle and some lovely fresh pink grapefruit juice at The Modern Pantry last week was spot on.
