Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

The TreeHouse Revisited

The TreeHouse Revisited

Eva and I dined again in the TreeHouse last Saturday, and had another excellent and thoroughly enjoyable meal. We feasted on cauliflower soup, crab cakes, baked cod and lamb shank shepherd's pie.

Unlike some restaurants, the TreeHouse prepares and cooks fresh ingredients on the premises; it does not reheat or microwave its food.

The TreeHouse produces consistently good quality fresh food, in a lively and friendly atmosphere.

It is well worth visiting.

Delia's Recipes for Cheats

Delia's Recipes for Cheats

I watched Delia Smith's new show on the BBC on Monday, in which she showed how to cheat at cooking by using ready made ingredients eg frozen mash and tinned mince.

Whilst the recipes themselves, if they used fresh ingredients, were fine; I balk at the idea of using ready made mash and tinned meat.

These ingredients are not as good as homemade, and cost more than buying the ingredients fresh and preparing them at home.

I fail to see how people do not have the time or initiative to make their own mash.

Hwangtoma

Those of you with a penchant for raw trout, and who are in Seoul, should visit Hwangtoma.

I am advised by a good friend and colleague that it is excellent.
