Caramelised Onion, Halloumi and Pumpkin Puff tart

The ancient and much loved combination of cheese and onion made seasonal with accompaniment of mildly sweet roasted pumpkin and fresh peppery watercress to cut through the lemony notes of the halloumi. I find this a perfect one for  brunch as it can be put together in no longer than 30 minutes with very little washing up :).

Crispy Honey Chicken Wings

These Sticky Spicy and Crispy chicken wings are almost too good to be true. A recipe put together by my girlfriend and myself after many attempts makes this a personal favourite. The savoury of the fried garlic accompanied by the Shichimi seven spice is a beautiful combination of Asian flavours, all this balanced by the natural sweetness of honey is just utterly moreish.

Most commonly an accompany to a variety of other dishes serve in a Chinese meal but there is no problem of turning this into a meal in itself, parred by some beautiful steamed sushi grade rice.

A recipe that has been passed down to me by an excellent chef who has had many years’ experience of cooking in the hot plains and bustling streets of Sri Lanka. This has got to be one of my favourite types of curry, the deep spice tones from the roasted curry powder contrasted with the sourness of the tamarind and sweetness of the fish makes it absolutely delicious.

Vegetable Lo Mein

Noodles, something that takes a lot of practice to get right. Hopefully I will shortcut you through all the failures with this sweet and nutty vegetarian recipe  that has endless variations, the only limit being your imagination. Using the relatively unknown Hong Kong style noodles just gives them that exquisite feel, something you may not associate with a bowl of noodles.
