“Vegetarians resistance is futile” – Um, no. That looks gross. Also, I don’t eat grass. I bet whoever gave this advertising campaign the thumbs up for Gourmet Burger Kitchen is kicking themselves. Were they drunk?…or just massively stupid? I suppose it’s worked in a way because by massively offending vegetarians and vegans it’s got itself…

Will be back soon

Hello, Just (another) quick note to say I’m still here. I haven’t really had access to a kitchen for the past month and now possibly have scurvy (ah, life!) I intend to be back cooking properly after Christmas. I’m having fantasies about broccolli again and haven’t chopped an onion in a month. Thanks to the…

I’m not dead…

Hello, I’m not dead. Sorry for abandoning you, things have been a bit weird since I’ve been back from honeymoon and getting back into the swing of things has been hard. Slowly but surely I’m getting my cooking mojo back so, in the words of Arnie, I will be back. Soon, promise….

The Lowdown on Pulses and Beans

These include onions, garlic, a good set of knives (although you might regret this when you end up with a nice lumpy scar after a run in with an aubergine and a breadknife because you couldn’t find the chopping knife), tomatoes and…

Hello World!

Hello! This is my first public blog in a long time so I thought I should start by introducing myself and this blog. My name is Elisabeth and I live in Manchester, UK with my very much none vegetarian fiancee who i’m sure would have toast/cereal for dinner if I let him (which I don’t!)  I have…
