Ahh Sriracha, let me count the ways I love thee.

We’ll fess up, it took 3 attempts. We’ve made mistakes, learnt lessons and are passing those savings on to you. All that ‘info’ is at the end of the recipe and worth a read before you start fermentin’.

This is the real deal folks, strap in!

Weekend in the Sticks

From rural France to rural Wiltshire, we were flitting about all over the place last week.

So, we’ve had a week off the climate kind path, that’s safe to say. But look at this treasure gracing Winchester Station platforms, a fantastic example of a community growing initiative.

Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup

We unwittingly stumbled into a vegan cul-de-sac recently.

As you know we’re meat-free monday to friday these days which is why we launched CBP back in January. We like authenticity rounds these ends and tend to steer clear of the ‘veggie products that could be meat if you had no taste buds’ in favour of real dishes that were designated veggie from the get go.

Replicating the asian flavour staples of Nam Pla aka fish sauce and shrimp paste is the last great adversary of the devoted vegan, and climate kind eater for that matter. This is a neccesary conversation we feel, just don’t get us started on quorn sausages, tempeh bacon or tofurky.  Continue reading “Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup”

There are, as one would expect, several different takes on how to make the perfect OAB.

This recipe is akin to Marcus Wareing’s recipe from The Savoy Grill’s menu, so about as authentic as it gets but with one seemingly minor adaptation to the method which actually cuts out tons of faff and about 35mins. Cuz who’s got the time these days, right.

Could OAB be the most deliciously decadent omelette in the known universe? Quite possibly, yes. Continue reading “Omelette Arnold Bennett”
