Marinated chicken skewers with tzatziki at Bill’s, Covent Garden.
When you eat here, you just know that the ingredients will be fresh and healthy - which suited me perfectly. Except I did eat half a loaf of potato and rosemary bread. Oh and the warm mini cinnamon doughnuts with fresh strawberries and warm chocolate dipping sauce…
Homemade Cauliflower Cheese - the ultimate comfort food.
Simply boil the cauliflower, then make the cheese sauce as follows:
For 1 large cauliflower -
1 pint of milk
4 tbsp.plain flour
Grated cheddar (as much as you can handle!)
Bring the milk, flour and butter to the boil, whisking quickly so the mixture does not turn lumpy, until it the sauce begins to thicken. Turn off the heat, then stir in the cheese.
Pour the sauce over the cauliflower in an oven dish, add extra cheese on top and grill till nice and crispy as the picture above.
Lamb and spinach fragrant curry complete with cashew nuts and naan at The Jack In The Green, Exeter. Don’t forget the mango chutney and raita on the side - this really makes it. Don’t go for this if you’re looking for hot spice - I had to ask for fresh chillis with mine, but this is a brilliant fragrant curry, and the meat was incredibly tender. Not what you’d expect from your every day gastro pub.
