originally started as a place to publish my favourite
recipes and those I had either created or modified to
my own taste. The sheer volume of recipes I have received
since those early days, over two years ago, has meant
that I have had very little time to write down my own
modest efforts - at least here is one for you to try.
guiding principal when creating food is to try and keep
it simple but at the same time creating food which makes
you want to ask for more.
