I’m not a very adventurous cook. I tend to make things from memory, and so I stick to trusted family favourites. These change with the seasons, and from year to year. I like to cook with what is in season and in the larder, and keep a list of essential dried and packet goods to that end. Meat and fish I buy daily, milk is delivered, and the eggs come from our own hens. I grow as many of our fruit and vegetables as possible, and buy the rest from a local farmer.
What follows is a collection of everyday recipes. I hope you will find them as reliable, tasty and satisfying as we do.
