On asking my mother why she never taught me to cook, I was met with a blank "Well darling, you just weren't interested". How things have changed. This blog will chronicle my attempts to cook a different dish a day plus the odd food-related

Latest Blog Posts for A Brit's Dish a Day

  • The Small Things That Make Me Smile
    on Aug 23, 2009
    You may wonder how I'm going to have time to write a new blog when A Brit's Dish a Day has dwindled to A Brit's Dish Every Few Days... When I Get A Moment To Write Them Up but I now want to post about all of my life - not just what occurs in my kitch...
  • Salad of Middle Eastern Chicken with Bulgar Wheat and Pomegranates
    on Aug 20, 2009 in Entertaining Grains Salad Chicken
    Sometimes I get the urge to entertain, purely so I can put together a menu. Sexy S was the recipient of this dish, which was meant to be accompanied by Baklava Berry Tarts (I was doing a Middle Eastern theme!) but unfortunately we had to make too wit...
  • Flapjacks
    on Aug 17, 2009 in Sweets Snacks Baking
    On receiving a bumper delivery of Mornflake goodies - seriously, I've never seen so many oats in my life! - I had to do something other than eat them for brekkie (although they do make a rich, creamy porridge...)Flapjacks were the obvious answer. I l...
  • Salmon wrapped in filo pastry
    on Aug 14, 2009 in Disasters Fish Pastry
    Wrap a piece of skinless salmon in a few sheets of filo pastry they said. Brush with lots of melted butter and cook it for 15 minutes they said. Don't, I say...Well, do but only use a couple of sheets, season very well between the layers - or shove s...
  • My lunch
    on Aug 11, 2009 in Wild food
    The weekend saw me bent double under an umbrella, harvesting clumps of samphire. Most was pickled but there was plenty left over which made a lip-puckeringly salty and simple lunch, pan-fried in butter. I think that it was a little late in the season...
  • Chicken, pea and bean salad with coconut dressing
    on Aug 8, 2009 in Vegetables Salad Chicken
    A scrumptious salad - I'd had the recipe for ages (Diana Henry from Stella) but it seemed apt for tonight. Whisk flour into a dash of coconut milk to thicken. Heat more coconut milk to simmer, stir in the thickened paste and cook for five minutes. Co...
  • Chorizo 'tortilla'
    on Aug 6, 2009 in Potatoes Chorizo
    Inspired by a dish in Annie Bell's Gorgeous Suppers this is a simple, delicious, savoury bake.Thickly slice some potatoes, briefly fry them in olive oil and then add water to the pan - cover and simmer until just tender. Drain and cover. Next fry som...
  • Broad bean, fennel and artichoke risotto
    on Aug 3, 2009 in Rice Vegetarian Vegetables
    I think risottos are one of my favourite things to cook - there are infinite variations which the lazy cook can claim as their own. One such version is this, with broad beans, Mummy's home-grown fennel, and home-marinated artichokes. Mr F said he tho...
  • Beef rogan josh
    on Aug 1, 2009 in Curry Beef
    Instead of the usual lamb rogan josh I had some beef languishing in my freezer so thought I'd make this version instead. I know that this beef takes forever to get tender so it took a long time - but was worth it.Fry a small onion, add the beef and b...
  • Fairy cakes
    on Jul 29, 2009 in Cakes Baking
    Unlike my last attempt at making fairy cakes (an unmitigated disaster) these were a success and good enough to serve to my refined pal F for afternoon tea! Of course I hid got rid of the less than perfect ones before her arrival.I followed the basic...
