Saucepans, Sauces and Swear Words

A collection of recipes 



A strange title some of you may be thinking?

But they are just that! Just a collection of recipes, some original, but mostly begged, borrowed or stolen over the 30 odd years i've been cooking!

Cumbria is a wonderful place to live as a chef,  I’m surrounded by some of (in my humble opinion) the best produce and ingredients available to anyone, lamb, beef, pork, game, seafood, cheese need I go on?

The recipes aren’t written to be followed to the letter ( or the gram ) cooking is, and always should be about a persons taste, feel, smell, hence you’ll be seeing phrases like

” a splash of ”

“a knob of ”

” a good handful of ”

use recipes as a guide, and adapt them to suit your own taste,

I love chilli, but i’m sure some of you would like less, and, some of you considerably more,

So hopefully you’ll enjoy my recipes, I’ll get you trying different foods, different techniques, but, more than anything, get you to love cooking!!!

Happy cooking
