Each afternoon at 1.45 last week, Radio 4 gave tips for anyone thinking of opening a chippie. This might seem a strange ambition to encourage on our most middle-class radio station, but as we learn from a book to be published later this month, Fish and Chips:Read More
I had a lovely day with Martin on his beginners seafood cookery lesson in Surrey this week, Back to see him again this month for his next lesson on meat. We decided on a steamed mixed seafood platter using local sussex fish with ginger, chillies, coriander, limes, finished off with a ginger, honey and soya dressing, it tasted amazing!Read More

1 tsp salt
Small handful coriander stalks, finely chopped
The zest of 2 limes
oriander leaves, samphire and lime juice to serve
500g peeled tiger prawns, threaded on bamboo skewers
Unfortunately, as delicious as these two dietary staples undoubtedly are, they are neither nutritious nor cheap. And with money tighter than ever before for the Great British Student, it might not be such a bad idea for the old overdraft if you started diversifying your desgustational repertoire - by which I mean 'eat something else'.Read More
This southern Italian salad usually uses capocollo or sopressata but coppa di parma (cured pork shoulder) is easier to get hold of. If you can't find it, any good quality Italian salami will do – except the bright pink one!Read More
Britain is to enjoy its first taste of spring this weekend with the arrival of Mediterranean temperatures and the first batch of home-grown strawberries.
Forecasters said the country will be hotter than Barcelona while supermarkets were racing to stock their shelves with the first English strawberries of the season.Read More
Making these delicate macarons can become seriously addictive – there is no end to the colour and flavour varieties you can create. Use food colouring pastes rather than the liquid variety; a small pot will colour hundreds of macarons and the selection of colours now available is vast (Sugarflair paste colours are £1.99 for 25g from janeasher.com). Sandwich them with any number of fillings to match the colours – lemon curd, jam, buttercream or ganache are all perfect.Read More
Chefs agree that a perfect creme brulee should have a creamy, soft, custard filling with crisply caramelised sugar on top. How this is achieved is more contentious. Purists, including Weekend's food columnist Tamasin Day-Lewis, insist that a proper crème brûlée should never see the inside of an oven, but some of the most respected chefs, including Gordon Ramsay, bake theirs.Read More
The sky is clear and the sea calm as the Libby Lou sails out of Brighton marina with the sunrise. Skipper Steve Eason steers his 10-metre day boat out to where he laid eight 500-metre-long nets the day before, a mile off the Sussex coast. He is after slip sole, a smaller fish than Dover sole – its size means it is unsuitable for the UK market so it is exported to France and Holland. It has been a big tide and he is not optimistic. I'm just hoping that we catch something that will be of interest to a local restaurant as I try to follow one fish from sea to plateRead More
People say that Italy has a conservative food culture and, in a way, this is true. Compared with London, Rome has few ethnic restaurants. Then again, you can afford to be a bit unadventurous when you are blessed with a cuisine as inventive and varied as that of Italy.Read More
The name says it all really. This fab, award-winning shop – with an equally great little café squeezed in at the back – specializes in local produce from Sussex, and was named one of the best food shops in the south in The Observer’s 2013 Food Awards.Read More

We’ve surely done with fasting and food penance, now that January’s over. It’s time for us to loosen our belts and tuck into a bit of old-fashioned stodge. And by stodge I mean glorious, luxurious, rich, heavy, sticky, proper British puddings. There is nothing more happy-making, and I love them all: Sussex pond, spotted dick, crumbles, steamed puds and pies. Great stodgy puddings, such as jam roly poly, often involve suet and I urge you to use the real stuff rather than the vegetable equivalent. Vegetable suet is to the beef version as margarine is to butter: pale, miserable and tasteless compared to the rich, meaty fat taken from around the kidneys of beef cattle. Using the real thing improves the desired stodge factor no end, adding a wonderful rich flakiness to the dough that cannot be achieved by butter or veggie suet.Read More
A poll of 1,000 adults found a third of UK adults regularly turn to basic pasta for their evening meal.
We may claim to be a nation of foodies, but a quarter of Britons admit they tuck into cereal for dinner at least once a week while just over a fifth rely on the contents of the biscuit tin for sustenance, new research reveals.
Despite the huge popularity of TV cookery shows and celebrity cookbooks, almost half of British adults have just a handful of meals that they rely on in the week, with a third regularly turning to basic pasta for their evening meal.
Congratulations to Angela Stapleton. She was randomly selected from our Facebook fans to win a FREE one-to-one lesson with Beurre-Blanc home cookery school.
