The Original Oriental
Grand Fishy Gestures
One of the first courses I did, and still proving popular – there are dishes in this course that people simply can’t believe you can make, and then realize it’s very very simple. Hot & Sour soup, Pork & Prawn dim sum, sushi, Thai Green Curry (inc taste test of bought curry paste against home-made), Thai fish cakes
This was the course that got me started – and it’s still one of my favourites. Ruthie Rogers and Rose Gray’s Clam Soup, Salsa Verde, the Mashed and Smashed Fish Stew and a pan-roasted seabream with crisp pancetta, stir fried squash.
This must be the most popular course that I’ve put together so far, and I am still being asked to do it. Lots of you will have eaten the dishes by now – I know I have been served them at dinners and lunches (and served them myself as well) all over South West London. Chicken tagine, veg tagine, warm chicken and pomegranate salad, hummus, beetroot dip, baba Ganoush
One Pot Winter Wonders
This is a newish course that has proved remarkably popular. Actually no surprise as it contains some corkers. Smoked Haddock Chowder, Chicken, Chorizo and Chickpea Hotpot, Lamb Boulangere, Sausage and Lentil Hotpot with Prunes, Lamb Shanks with Borlotti Beans. Big big flavours, and all you need to go with them is a glass of wine. Just my style!
