Friday food links – 18 Sep 2015

This week has been patched together, bits and leftover pieces stretched and sewn at the edges to fit as much as possible. E has been sick, and sleeping poorly as a result. This means staying home, going to bed early to comfort her, sitting with her while she naps – and then trying to fit in all the business of the week in the little gaps. So lots of planned things went out the window – including work! And a few day’s dinners were downgraded to simpler options to fit in. This week has, perhaps appropriately, been Jamie Oliver-themed. I don’t think any other British cook has put as much effort into getting interesting weeknight dinners on the table. I’ve made a recipe from the new Jamie Oliver Superfood series, and bookmarked the fish tacos for this weekend. I haven’t bought the book yet, but I’m tempted.


Without a recipe:

  • Vegetable korma – with a Spice Tailor sauce
  • Various leftovers for other meals – curry and rice, courgette parmigiana with leftover beans.

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
