Kippers Cullen Skink

Kippers Cullen Skink

Cullen skink soup is traditionally made with smoked haddock but Theo finds the sweet taste of kipper to be better.


Lamb Rump with Salsa Verde

Lamb Rump with Salsa Verde

Lamb rump is very under-rated – when marinated it has a wonderful flavour and is surprisingly tender. Salsa verde is the perfect sauce for the lamb as it cuts the fattiness and gives a lovely fresh taste. Serve with a young Rosso di Montalcino.


English Raspberries with Crema di Mascarpone and Almond Croquante

English Raspberries with Crema di Mascarpone and Almond Croquante

I love this recipe because it is so easy. It is perfect to put in the middle of the table for a group of people to share (or fight over). The slightly sharp flavour of fresh raspberries is perfect with the sweet mascarpone cream and caramel.
