What a fabulous lunch! Big, plump nduja and mascarpone tortellini with wild garlic pesto. The pasta is from the order we placed last month with @latuapasta and the pesto is from @thegardenerskitchenllanellen, our wonderful local deli and grocery, which sells lovely homegrown vegetables and homemade pastries and cakes. What kind of things do you tend to eat for lunch, especially during the working week? #pastalover #pastalunch #tortelloni #wildgarlic #pesto #pestopasta #foodpix #foodblogger #onmytable #weekdaymeals #midweekmeals #fbchat21 #inmybelly #feedfeedathome

Sri Lankan White Fish Curry

A souring and thickening agent unique to Sri Lanka, goroka (kokam) is a fluted orange fruit whose segments are dried, turning black. Spanish mackerel, skin on, cut into 3 cm (1¼ in) pieces 1 piece of Goroka (available from Asian grocers and specialist spice outlets) Place the coconut milk, spices, onion, chillies, garlic and curry leaves in a heavy-based saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes or until the onions are soft. This Sri Lankan fish curry powder can be used in a range of fish curries and also works well added to a little flour and used to season fish fillets before shallow frying.

About half an hour's drive from us, in Allensmore just south of Hereford, is a most unexpected source of an amazingly wide selection of fruit and vegetables, including plenty of tropical produce from around the world. This grocery selection is located in a petrol garage and Londis store called Locks Garage! I've no idea how they came to offer such a great selection of fresh produce – some of those is rare to see outside of survivalist ethnic grocery shops – but it's a veritable cornucopia for those seeking out less readily available fruit and veg to cook and eat. These photos show only a tiny subset of the vegetables they sell including several different types of aubergines, tindora, bitter gourd, taro roots sand tiny red chillies. Last Tuesday I bought the white and purple baby aubergines I shared here on Insta, plus pak choi, custard apples, mangoes and figs. Yesterday I picked up more pak choi and custard apples plus a tray of 7 mangosteen! I've been told Locks are very well known for their ice cream too, so we will certainly go back to try that. Inside they also have a small selection of farm produce including beef, pork and venison labelled as Locks Farm, eggs and charcuterie. #fruitandveg #fruitandvegetables #tropicalfruit #taro #aubergines #eggplant #redchillies #chillies #bittergourd #tindora #foodpix #foodblogger #fbchat21 #inspiremyinstagram #foodshopping #foodmarket

Sri Lankan Snake Bean Curry

If you decide to buy this book after reading our content, please consider clicking through our affiliate link, located within the post and in the footnote at the end. This Sri Lankan Snake Bean Curry is a lovely and simple vegetable dish combining fresh beans, spices and coconut milk. This recipe is from Peter Kuruvita’s beautiful cookbook Serendip: My Sri Lankan Kitchen , a fantastic collection of traditional Sri Lankan curries, side dishes, snacks and desserts. Add the bean mixture and stir for 5 minutes, then add the coconut cream, reduce the heat to low and simmer until the cream has reduced by half.

Lovely to see all the photos from friends in England flocking back to restaurants and enjoying meals out with family and friends. We have a little longer to wait here in Wales but it won't be long now! We've got a couple of treats booked in towards the end of the month and can't wait! In the meantime, I'm getting my dim sum hit thanks to steam-from-frozen dumplings that we bought online several weeks ago, and are rapidly dwindling in our freezer. These are Delico brand "pork sieuw mai" and pretty decent! I just ate this entire 12 pack for lunch! Have you been enjoying the freedom to visit restaurants again, or are you, like us, still waiting eagerly for the rules changes to come into force where you are? #chinesefood #dimsum #yumcha #siumai #porkdumplings #dumplings #dimsumlover #chinesedumplings #foodpix #foodblogger #foodandtravel #steamed #bamboosteamer #fbchat21 #feedfeedathome #feedyoursoul #comfortfood

Proper pork pies with a gluten free hot water crust pastry from @beckyexcell's cookbook How To Make Anything Gluten Free. The recipe is published in full on Kavey Eats today. Some people are unable to eat any gluten, and must follow a strict gluten free diet in order to maintain their health and avoid very painful damage. Many more are intolerant and find that eating gluten causes discomfort, which doesn't do any lasting damage but they would rather avoid. This book is all about recreating recipes that usually feature gluten-rich ingredients with substitutes that are Read @nickybramley's full review of the book, and then check out this delicious recipe. 📷 1 by Nicky Bramley 📷 2 (from book) by Hannah Hughes.

The Best Traditional Food from the UK

There are specific sauces that pair well with each meat: horseradish sauce or mustard with beef, bread sauce or cranberry sauce with chicken, mint sauce or redcurrant sauce with lamb and apple sauce for roast pork. all rather sweet and very filling, and traditionally served with plenty of custard on top, unless you prefer yours with cream, or ice cream cream, or a combination! Afternoon tea is traditionally served on a three tier stand, and includes delicate finger sandwiches, scones served with jam and cream, and a selection of dainty cakes and pastries. Don’t confuse afternoon tea with a cream tea (scones with jam and cream, and a pot of tea, but no sandwiches or pastries), or with high tea (a working class synonym for the evening meal, so called because it was eaten at a high – dining – table).

Egg scrambled with kecap manis on hot-buttered sourdough toast. One of my favourite breakfasts. To be honest, any breakfast featuring eggs is automatically one of my favourites! 🤣 Also one of my favourite sets of plates–it's Royal Doulton Kaleidoscope from the 1970s, bought in a charity shop several years ago. Very much my colours! Great way to start the weekend! Are your an egg addict? What are your favourite ways to eat eggs? #scrambledeggs #kecapmanis #sourdough #sourdoughtoast #eggsontoast #foodblogger #foodpix #homecooking #weekendeats #fbchat21 #breakfastinspo #feedfeedathome

Egg fried rice with ham and spring onions, with pak choi and courgette stir-fry. This is true comfort food for me and @petedrinks pulled out together very quickly, having cooked double portions of rice last night. Not quite veggie tonight, with the two slices of ham in the rice, which I really fancied, but could easily have been. Do you love egg fried rice?
