I am making up for my lack of duck recipes with this Baharat spiced roast duck served with an orange and pomegranate couscous salad.
This roasted duck and noodle salad with a whole helping of crunchy vegetables is pretty easy to put together but these simple flavours combined pack a real good punch.
This one-pot venison sausage casserole recipe with borlotti bean and fennel seed is a simple and tasty way to keep out the winter chill.
One of the things I like about Suffolk is the fact that it is so varied. It ranges from heathland to forest, has some of the most fertile farmland in the country, and a stunning coast. Which means that the county produces a wide variety of delicious food. This food all comes together in a celebration of Suffolk (and East Anglian) food in the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival.
What I like about venison is that it very lean and so makes healthier burgers. The addition of the onion and garlic paste and chipotle ketchup give the burger a good flavour, a hint of smokiness and some spice. But even more importantly these add juiciness to the meat.
A healthy chocolate hummus recipe that is great for summer and guilt free snacking.
This local to me pub / restaurant, set in a quite rural road in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, is all about the food. As is glorious local food. I like that as I am looking through their menu, I can pretty much map where all the main things come from. Yes, Suffolk is gloriously on the menu at the British Larder.
Introducing you all to the bacon sandwich for grown ups. I am talking fresh crusty bread, garlic mayonnaise, crisp salad greens, caramelised onions, sweet roasted peppers and smoky streaky bacon. And the clincher- a liberal helping of Stokes Bloody Mary ketchup.
When Barclaycard Freedom Rewards asked me to write about on of my favourite independent retailers I knew it had to be Salter and King Butchers in Aldeburgh. Why Salter and King Butchers? Well it is a combination of good meat, excellent skills and good service.
These delicate cardamom, cranberry and pistachio biscuits are not too sweet, thanks to the low sugar content and the addition of the fleur de sel, which helps the cardamom flavour to shine through; whilst the crumbly biscuit melts in your mouth, there is the fruity-sweet tang and chewiness from the dried cranberries and a crunch from the outer layer of ground pistachio.
