Baharat Spiced Lamb Kofta with Pickled Red Cabbage and Tahini Sauce

Baharat Spiced Lamb Kofta with Pickled Red Cabbage and Tahini Sauce

Using mince is a great way to create quick and tasty meals from scratch. Mince is really quick to season - you don't need to marinade it for hours because there is more surface area for your spices to work their magic. Mince is pretty economical too...

Our black rice is the perfect foil for the assertive flavour of asparagus and with some sweet preserved tomatoes, crisp radish, nutty edamame beans, fresh herbs and a delicious garlic and lemon dressing, this dish is a total winner.

Warm Noodle Salad with Lemongrass Chilli Chicken and XO Sauce

Our Sau Tao Taiwan style wide cut noodles are key to making this dish so good, they are lovely long ribbon noodles with crimped edges that are slightly chewy, taste great and look really funky. Mixed with some intense and spicy XO sauce and a little zingy Vietnamese nouc cham, a salty, sour and sweet dressing made using fish sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, garlic, fresh chilli and lime juice, the combination is fantastic.

I guess broccoli isn't the first ingredient that springs to mind when considering 'things to go on my toast' but a friend of mine raved about this recipe, it's from the brilliant Thomasina Miers - a chef, writer and TV presenter who won MasterChef in 2005. 
Ginger & Chilli Green Lentils, with Pan Fried Salmon and a Yoghurt Dressing

Ginger & Chilli Green Lentils, with Pan Fried Salmon and a Yoghurt Dressing

This lentil recipe came from a chef friend who used to work at The Tate, he said it's one of those recipes you'll go back to time and time again. However, there's good news and bad news.... 
Asian Cucumber Salad

Asian Cucumber Salad

It's sometimes hard to get excited about cucumber, particular when they are 'straight from the fridge cold' and sliced into slightly uninspiring rounds. Cucumbers are 96% water, they have a lovely clean, crunchy texture but need a little helping hand to bring out their best.
Noodle Salad with Sesame, Ginger & Soy Dressing

Noodle Salad with Sesame, Ginger & Soy Dressing

I just love the fresh vibrant flavours of a noodle salad, a riot of textures and flavours - brought together with a zingy, aromatic dressing. Year-round versatility, you can incorporate whatever fresh veg or salad happens to be in season at the time, or lurking in your fridge and needs using up.

Lebanese Spiced Falafels with Tahini and Tabouleh

Lebanese Spiced Falafels with Tahini and Tabouleh

There's nothing quite as simple and tasty as a freshly cooked falafel. Once seen as just the vegan option, it's become a stalwart on the festival eating scene and a real favourite on restaurant menus. For good reasons too, a tasty falafel packs enough flavour to tempt even the most die hard meat-eaters away from the burger van.

Wild garlic is so abundant in Somerset - so much of the woodland in early spring has that unmistakable aroma. The season starts in early March and goes on through to the middle of Spring. If you miss the season we sell an awesome jar of Wild Garlic Pesto made in small batches on our doorstep...
Roasted Butternut Squash Salad, Pecans, Spinach, Feta with Maple Syrup Dressing

Roasted Butternut Squash Salad, Pecans, Spinach, Feta with Maple Syrup Dressing

The idea of a dressing is to enhance the flavour of the food you are eating. The acid from the vinegar contrasts with the sugar, salt and oil to heighten the pleasure we get from eating. Dressing hot, cooked vegetables is just as gratifying as dressing cold salad leaves, almost more so.

Miso Mushroom Poke Bowl

Miso Mushroom Poke Bowl

You could easily be mistaken for thinking that a Poke bowl is a Japanese invention, but actually it's one of the national dishes of Hawaii. Slap bang in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaiian cuisine has lots of influences from the Orient.
