Trick or Treat Pumpkin Chilli
Posted by Supper Club Wednesday, 28th October 2015
We’re just kidding, there’s no trick in our pumpkin recipe, just a hearty treat of a chilli to warm your cockles on those chilly October evenings.
While we may not celebrate Halloween with the same extravaganza as they do in the US, pumpkin carving is still a brilliantly fun tradition – especially if you’ve got little ones – but this year, rather than throwing out all the flesh you scrape out of the inside, keep your left overs and turn them into a delicious meal for the whole family.0 Comments

Winter Is Coming...
Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 13th October 2015
But the good news is it has not arrived yet. Anyone who watches Games of Thrones will know that line only too well. Last week I had the privilege of touring the locations of the Game of Thrones set in my native Northern Ireland. Places I used to visit as a child with my parents on Sunday afternoon drives, however they have now been turned into mass tourist attractions. “The Wall”, which is the cold face of winter, is a quarry, outside of the old port of Larne where one used to board the ferry for the 13 mile trip to Scotland.0 Comments
Best of British - Roast Beef
Posted by Emma Line Monday, 28th September 2015
Good food and good company: just what Sunday afternoons were made for! As autumn sets in, there’s no better way to brighten up a drizzly weekend than by gathering together your nearest and dearest for some delicious winter comfort food.
Hearty and wholesome, Sunday roast is a brilliant British heritage dish – so good in fact, there’s a national Roast Dinner Week, from the 28th September – 4th October, celebrating one of our loveliest traditions.
It’s the perfect excuse to get together with friends and family to enjoy the last of the weekend and some wonderful home cooking!2 Comments
Roast Dinner Week
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 28th September 2015
The 23rd September - 4th October is British Roast Dinner Week. Restaurants and pubs around the country are putting themselves forward to win the crown of Best Roast Dinner, with the regional finalists announced on the 25th and the winner on the 4th.
Roast Dinners are just one huge delicious dilemma to me. It’s hard enough deciding on what to have for the main part - meat or veggie, which meat? So when you add in condiments (apple sauce, horseradish, mint sauce), the sides (Yorkshires) and the vegetables it’s easy to understand why we never grow tired of our Sunday favourite. It’s so versatile. You can make it as complicated or simple as you like and almost all the prep can be done ahead of time.0 Comments
It's All A Bit Manic
Posted by James McIntosh Thursday, 27th August 2015
I don’t have any children, my lifestyle would not cope. I don’t find myself a selfish person or one that is adverse to children, I just enjoy travelling too much. Facebook, that thing that overtakes one’s life with pictures of every social gathering and new pair of jeans that enters one's life, available on all devices, has left me screaming this past few weeks. Friends buying school uniforms online, pictures of children sporting their uniforms pre-school and I’ve even seen a service where a photographer will come to your house on the morning of the first day at school.0 Comments
Best of British: Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas
Posted by Emma Line Wednesday, 29th July 2015
Synonymous with towns like Brighton and Bournemouth, fish, chips and mushy peas brings a quintessential taste of the British seaside to your dinner table. So then, with summer holiday season in full swing, what better way to start our Best of British recipe series than this traditional coastal dish? It’ll have you reminiscing about stripy deck-chairs, bracing sea air and rickety wooden piers.0 Comments
A Bowl of Delicious Salad
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 20th July 2015
My late father was a farmer, he used to complain heavily when my mum would serve a ‘lovely salad’ for dinner after a hard days work in the fields. Dad had a point... Well, back then anyway. Generally, in the 1980’s, salads were bowls of iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and hard boiled eggs, however, today they can be fantastic tasting bowls of summer joy full of colour and flavour.0 Comments
Simple Sardine and Tomato Tagliatelle
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 13th July 2015
Whether you’re going on holiday or not, the fresh flavours and easy method of this recipe should bring you a little taste of the mediterranean. I suggest finding a nice red wine to drink with it and perhaps burning a citronella candle as you eat it - just for that authentic holiday experience!0 Comments
Caraway Seed Cake - The perfect Father's Day treat
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 15th June 2015
It’s Father’s Day on June 21st so I thought I thought I’d bring you an idea of what to make for any father-figures in your life. In order to decide what to make I thought it made sense to ask my own Dad what are his favourite things to eat. He suggested a lovely range of dishes, from seafood risotto to the more classic roast pork or a pie of any form. I’m not going to give you a recipe for any of those though. I suppose this is the kind of every day injustice which the father of two daughters has to endure. Sorry Dad. Instead, I’m going to give you a recipe for caraway seed cake. I thought of it because I’m sure my Dad has mentioned this featuring in his childhood (need to ask him about that) and whilst most of my friends who are Dads would scoff down a chocolate brownie/muffin/cake at any given moment, I feel that a father’s day recipe should be something more refined.0 Comments
