No butternut squash risotto allowed! Sorry, I don’t hate risotto but am I the only one who’s noticed that this is the ‘go to’ dish for any chef who needs a vegetarian option for their menu?? I don’t mind if I only get one option at a restaurant or pub but I’d love it if that option was just a little bit more creative please. Anyway! Here are a few different recipes for these very versatile vegetables…

Back in the autumn I was given quite a few kilos of pears, from a tree no one else was harvesting. I hate the thought of all those other pears rotting on the ground and I was determined to put mine to good use. If you’ve got a few pears, of course you can just eat them as they are, but when you’ve got a few bags of pears you need some more creative solutions…

Broccoli has always been one of my favourite veggies. Before I got my vegetables via a box scheme delivery service (like an American CSA), I would buy it religiously every week. And then I didn’t eat any for ages – I guess I got a bit distracted by all the other vegetables I was discovering and I just forgot about good ole broccoli. But these are the recipes that remind me why I will always go back to where my love for vegetables began…

Answer: Definitely not throw it away! I am not a massive fan of Christmas pudding so I knew I wouldn’t eat any more of it. So I tried a couple recipes and I think I found a winner for using up the leftover pudding, or whatever dried fruit and nuts you’ve got in your cupboards…

I can’t stand throwing out food. I’m not quite sure when I became so fanatical about it – I definitely wasn’t as a kid, I still remember the standoffs where I’d be sat at the dining room table for hours while I stubbornly refused to eat my dinner. But something changed over the years and now I can’t bear to see any food go in the bin, in fact I quite enjoy the challenge of ensuring everything gets used up before it goes off (which can even stretch to scraping a bit of mold off the bread now and then, mmm!)

So as usual I made far too much rice when cooking our Christmas day banquet, so I decided to make a Caribbean vegetable curry the next day to use it up.

Back in October I went foraging for sloe berries for the first time. Foraging seems to be more and more popular at the moment and I had no trouble getting together a group of friends to join me!  We all went home and made sloe gin from our berries and Christmas is the traditional time to take that first sip you’ve been waiting for…

Make orange juice? Nah, too simple. I chose to make some slightly more complicated (but very tasty) things of course!
