We have been disappointed to find that it seems most restaurants and cafés in this region of Spain no longer offer a traditional version of Patatas Bravas. 

I know.

Weird - right?

Every time we have ordered this dish we have been brought mass produced lumps of d...

We get cooking ... with gas ...Spanish stylee

So we've only got about a month left of our 6 month stay here in Spain so we have decided we would like to take something back to the UK to remind us of our stay.

I love all things green – so when I saw the recipe for these lovelies, I just couldn't resist giving them a try!

We have also been asked to provide some vegan options for a wedding in August and thought these would make an elegant and delicious offering.

Bigger & maybe even better. And of course The Really Good Food Company were there…

The market last Saturday (19th January) held at the Corn Exchange - as usual - was another really successful event. 

All the stall holders were asked if we could provide tasters to help pr...

These are traditional Spanish pasties, popular in many different sizes and with a variety of fillings. 

After some research I decided upon a savoury filling using onions, green bell peppers, garlic, sliced green olives, smoked paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

So it's New Year's Day and - like most of you we'd guess - we are feeling tired, jaded, and generally the worse for wear...

But it's not because we've been partying all night for New Year's Eve.

We decided to walk up a mountain yesterday - which seemed like a good idea a...

I've had many attempts at making hummus and always tried to replicate the smooth, creamy, fluffy texture of my favourite hummus from our nearby green life supermarket (which it sells at quite a high price btw).

I have tried lots of ways - using dried chickpeas, canned a...
