This is nothing short of to die for – one of those ‘death by chocolate’ moments which will leave a smile on the face of your guests and family for weeks to come. It might appear complicated but it really is quite simple but you do need to begin...

This is a wonderful version of roast chicken and while I was initially somewhat sceptical of the risotto stuffing, it only took one cook of this dish to convince me to pick it in my favourites in my recipe file. The mushrooms are the perfect accompaniment here and they...
This is a wonderful pasta dish with flavours that just tempt your tastebuds for more. The lightly fried crispy, golden pumpkin is soft on the inside and compliments the pasta so well, while the prosciutto and goat’s cheese add two contrasting but equally complementary flavours and textures. The pine...
I love using blood-oranges. These small oranges have such a richly hued flesh that not only yields a dazzling ruby-coloured juice, but the juice makes a sensational sorbet and sliced they look extraordinary. This easy to make tart really shows off the blood-orange in all its glory and tastes...
These divine little tartlets use a traditional Breton biscuit recipe for the base which I like because, unlike traditional pastry, there is no need to chill or roll out the dough. The addition of freshly ground black pepper might seem contradictory but it gives the meringue a real spicy...
I imagine when you read the title to this dish you had a queried look on your face – how do you have a chocolate mousse made with avocado? Well you can and I can assure you it is sensational. This mousse not only has all the nutrient benefit...
Here is a wonderful roast chicken recipe where the chicken’s juices run into the baguette as it cooks, providing a real depth of flavour and crunch to the dish. The sage, lemon, garlic and artichokes are quintessential Mediterranean flavours and the mustard vinaigrette adds the perfect final touch. This is...
This is another of my favourite soups and when the carrots are sweet and in season, especially when I can pick them out of my garden, then the taste is even more delicious. This recipe uses buffalo-milk yoghurt which you can buy from speciality store, but Greek yoghurt works...
This is a favourite salad of mine which can be used with both thinly sliced beef and chicken, depending on your preferences. I particularly like this salad as I grow radicchio, flat-leaf parsley, rosemary and rocket in my garden, so it makes the preparation of the salad very simple and...
Ok, so this may not strictly be Mediterranean, but certainly chocolate is, and anyway, my blog, so here is a little bit of decadence and something that is awfully good at boosting the endorphins. A glass of sparkling shiraz and you will be one happy camper!!! Chocolate and pretzels...
Welcome to my love affair with the food, wine, history and culture of the Mediterranean, past and present. Here you will find not only recipes, drinks and fabulous products, but the history of the food and culture of the Mediterranean.
My purpose is to get you to explore and experience new tastes and along the way to immerse yourself in the wonderful history of this diverse and wonderful region – from Venice to Istanbul, Rome to Dubrovnik, Athens to Crete and all places in between and in the surrounds. Be prepared to be surprised, delighted and enthralled as you take this trip with me.
