Fennel and Blood Orange Fennel and Blood Orange By Foodborn and Bred 04/19/14 22:46 According to The Dining Room and food writer Tom Doorley, this combination is in the top ten list of fashionable ingredients. I just happened to have the ingredients and on a lovely sunny Easter Saturday thought it would be perfect with some fish. Fennel...
Mini Easter Simnel Cakes Mini Easter Simnel Cakes By Foodborn and Bred 04/17/14 21:21 I remember the first time I made a Simnel cake really well. It wasn't long after we had moved here from England and I decided I'd have a go. At that stage I wasn't as proficient at baking and my fruit cake repertoire was Christmas cake often burnt on the...
Keeping Chook Keeping Chook By Foodborn and Bred 04/15/14 22:28 Hybrid Red and Blackrock hensEvery time I read an article about keeping chickens, I think to myself if I had read that before I started, I wouldn't have bothered. They all seem to imply so much work and expense and inconvenience. Luckily I just did what...
A little bit of Ski for a lot of Eating A little bit of Ski for a lot of Eating By Foodborn and Bred 04/12/14 15:56 Our Austrian ski instructor said by the time he had finished with us, we would be skeezing down de slopsens. This was eight years ago for me and as I looked up at the slopes in Cervinia with the majestic Cervino (Matterhorn) looming up behind them, I shuddered....
Pomace Pomace By Foodborn and Bred 03/29/14 23:17 When you buy olive oil you expect it to be well, olive. Not necessarily so. I was talking to someone recently about "healthy" fats and cholesterol and the dreaded butter. They told me they had replaced the "dreadfully unhealthy butter" (full of natural...
Fennel and Mushroom Ragout Fennel and Mushroom Ragout By Foodborn and Bred 03/25/14 18:07 This is a really tasty recipe which has no meat (perfect for meat free meals) so should probably not really be called a ragout. I made it a few months ago having looked up recipes and sort of half followed one I found. I forgot to bookmark it and when I...
Beetroot Molasses and Walnut Bread Beetroot Molasses and Walnut Bread By Foodborn and Bred 03/22/14 20:10 The problem with not being able to throw away food is that, by using up something in a recipe, it very often doesn't work. Then you end up dumping a lot more than the first ingredient you were trying to save. Happily, in this instance it didn't happen....
Sweet Spicy Pepper Relish, Sage Butter and Kitchen Tips Sweet Spicy Pepper Relish, Sage Butter and Kitchen Tips By Foodborn and Bred 03/13/14 14:39 I get slightly old vegetables and fruit from my local green grocer for my pigs. I'm delighted to get it and even though my pigs are very picky, I figure the rest can go into my compost heap. However, I am continually amazed at the quality of stuff thrown...
Meatless Meals Meatless Meals By Foodborn and Bred 03/11/14 18:36 I sometimes find myself going through a meatless phase. I don't know why but very often when I make a meatless meal, (I don't say vegetarian as I almost always use a meat stock) I find I don't miss it at all. Using lentils in particular make a meal seem...
Butcher or Bin Man Butcher or Bin Man By Foodborn and Bred 02/28/14 22:41 This Italian-style sausage was made using off-cuts from my last pig slaughtered. When I say off-cuts I mean pieces of meat that my butcher was casually carving off the shoulder I had asked him for and binning. I stood chatting to him not really registering...
Boil your Cloth Boil your Cloth By Foodborn and Bred 02/02/14 14:31 I have just been reading about an outbreak of Novovirus in Heston Blumenthal's restaurant "Dinner" (again?). At some point in their life almost everyone will suffer from some form of food poisoning either by their own fair hand or by someone else. The most...
Sugar - the New Demon Sugar - the New Demon By Foodborn and Bred 01/21/14 21:54 Http://nutribulletblog.com/blasting-for-blood-sugar-controlTwo years ago I had a conversation with a doctor member of my family about fat. We argued about what was the real cause of obesity in this country. He was still of the opinion that all fat should...
Galette des Rois Galette des Rois By Foodborn and Bred 01/07/14 11:31 Nollaig na mBan or Women's Christmas celebrated on the Feast of the Epiphany has just passed. It is an Irish tradition when women get together and celebrate all the hard work they have completed over the Christmas holidays. A few years ago when I worked...
Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup By Foodborn and Bred 01/04/14 15:46 I'm trying to avoid throwing away any food after the Christmas holiday. Food waste has become almost an obsession with me. I'm lucky here as I have pigs, dogs, cats and poultry so there is usually some species that will benefit. Anything else goes to compost....
Panettone Pud Panettone Pud By Foodborn and Bred 01/02/14 19:24 You know every year at Christmas when you vow won't overbuy? But you do. I bought a Panettone for half price. Of course it sat on the sideboard and was picked at. I had a carton of cream in the fridge also leftover so made a version of bread and butter...
It's all about Family, Food, Fun It's all about Family, Food, Fun By Foodborn and Bred 12/29/13 17:05 Annual Christmas Family Shindig Our annual family Christmas get together is over for another year. Every year after Christmas we all gather in one of our houses and sit down to eat lots, drink lots, argue, shout, laugh and generally be merry. It is always...
Buyer Beware Rare Breed Buyer Beware Rare Breed By Foodborn and Bred 12/14/13 18:52 Rare breed pork, the latest, newest buzzword popping up on restaurant menus. Rare breed usually refers to any breed that's not Landrace. Landrace are the familiar pink pig, commercially bred for specific characteristics such as leanness and to provide a...
Prawn Curry and Wok Naan Prawn Curry and Wok Naan By Foodborn and Bred 12/08/13 21:31 This is the ultimate fast food. When you live in a rural area where the only take away is MSG central and most certainly doesn't deliver, it's handy to have a recipe that takes as long to prepare as it takes to cook the rice. I have added salmon when I...
Cooking Kids Cooking Kids By Foodborn and Bred 11/27/13 19:50 Well not exactly cooking kids more kids' cooking classes. I started a series of classes in our local community centre/sports complex recently. When I first broached the idea with the committee they were surprisingly enthusiastic. Well the centre does promote...
