    Salmon with lemon linguine pasta

    14th May 2021The Delicate Diner

    This pasta dish has fast become one of my most popular recipes and the one that everyone keeps asking me for – and it is also one of the easiest! It almost feels like a cheat to share it here, but with summer days calling for al fresco dining, here it is. Just make sure that your lemons are fresh for that extra zing, and you can use crème fraiche in place of the cream as wished. This lemon linguine pasta recipe is so versatile – serve it on its own with a green salad, with chicken or with roasted…

  • Halloumi and roasted vegetable tart

    Halloumi and roasted vegetable tart recipe

    29th April 2021The Delicate Diner

    A very delicious and easy halloumi and roasted vegetable tart that uses a vibrant Belazu tapenade and ready-made puff pastry for the base making this an ideal quick dinner for midweek. I roasted my vegetables for extra flavour, adding the asparagus and halloumi towards the end so that they were cooked to perfection. As ever, there are no rules – go for the flavours you like and use the veggies that are lurking in your fridge that need eating. A tomato sauce base would work just as well with this – as would a cheesy sauce! INGREDIENTS (Serves 4 easily)1…

    British Pie Week: Butternut squash, mushroom and chestnut filo pie recipe

    25th February 2021The Delicate Diner

    This is my easy vegetarian filo pie recipe for those in a hurry. I love the luxury of a pie, but I don’t always want the heaviness that shortcrust or butter pastry can bring. This pie is perfect for an alternative – layers of crisp filo pastry with a delicious filling of the earthy flavours that I love so much, roasted butternut squash, sage, mushrooms, and chestnuts. If you don’t have the exact ingredients, don’t worry – use whatever you have in the fridge, and make the flavours your own. INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)1 packet of filo pastry1 butternut squash, peeled…

  • Roast pheasant with wine

    Old Hall Farm roast pheasant with spiced red cabbage and stuffing

    11th December 2020The Delicate Diner

    Game is well and truly in season right now, so I thought it would be a good time to share my recipe for roast pheasant. Pheasant is high in B vitamins and potassium and is a lean meat. It makes a great alternative to turkey for Christmas dinner. I always cook a brace together – that is, a cock and a hen – and freeze the leftovers for another day. INGREDIENTS (SERVES 4 + LEFTOVERS)A brace of pheasants from Old Hall Farm6 rashers Old Hall Farm unsmoked streaky baconOld Hall Farm rare breed pork sausage meat1 large shallot, slicedA handful…

    Perfect Old Hall Farm roast pork with crispy crackling and beef dripping potatoes

    18th November 2020The Delicate Diner

    This is a delicious recipe in which I share my tips on how to make perfect slow roast pork using Old Hall Farm rare breed pork shoulder, with crispy mustard crackling, beef dripping potatoes, and an apple and mustard sauce. Before I begin, I have to be honest. This was hands down the best pork joint I have ever had. The flavour from Old Hall Farm’s rare breed pork was incredible, and the slow cook resulted in a beautifully tender piece of meat. I shared a photo with a British friend who lives in America; she is still crying as…

  • Old Hall Farm pork and apricot tagine

    11th November 2020The Delicate Diner

    I love a tagine. I think if I could, I would have it every couple of weeks, it is so good. This is a dish that covers all the bases – sweet, sour, savoury, spiced – in style. You can use any meat but for this, I used some amazing pork shoulder from Old Hall Farm. Cooked low and slow, it really allowed for the flavours of the tagine to mingle with the meat and make a delicious dinner. Don’t be put off by the list of ingredients, this dish really is worth it! INGREDIENTS (SERVES 4 + LEFTOVERS)1kg Old…

    25th October 2020The Delicate Diner

    A dish that is perfect for Hallowe’en and Bonfire Night alike, this warming sausage stew is enhanced with chorizo and sweet smoked paprika. I love the warming rich flavours, and this stew delights both children and adults. Perfect served with a jacket potato and greens, although you can add a tin of butterbeans/chickpeas towards the end of the cook to make an easy one-pot dish.
