Spicy Oxtail Ramen

This is the first time I’ve created broth using a pressure cooker. Not going to lie, I’ve always found them a bit scary and avoided using mine. My pressure cooker has sat on a dusty shelf for long enough and I decided it was time to get over my fear. And it makes life so […]

Surimi Okonomiyaki

I first tried okonomiyaki at Café An An in Portslade, when they had a special day cooking this Japanese pancake/ omelette. It is full of classic Japanese flavours and ingredients, with dashi, spring onion and topped with bonito flakes and seaweed. I got all the ingredients in Japan Centre in London (see below the recipe […]

Prawn Potstickers with Chilli Hodge Podge dip

Firstly, welcome to 2018! I’ve been quiet for a while on the recipe front, but I have lots planned for the coming year, so expect lots of updates and new recipes. I’m starting the year off with a recipe I have been cooking a lot over the past six months since I first discovered these […]

Lunch on the Go Pot Ramen

My husband, Tim, suggested I try making my own version of the infamous and much hated convenience food, the Pot Noodle. He wanted to be able to take what he started referring to as a ‘Pot Ramen’ to work and just pour boiling water on before eating. This is the recipe I created for him. […]

Spicy Lobster Ramen with chipotle soy sauce and chilli oil

I have exclaimed many times my love of Shoryu Ramen and upon hearing that they created a collaborative menu with Sakagura, a recently opened Japanese restaurant and sake cellar in London, I was intrigued to see a spicy lobster ramen on their menu. I knew I had to try to make my own. This was […]

Blue Raspberry Green Tea Loaf Cake

This recipe was inspired by the gorgeous brilliant blue colour of Bluebird Tea Co’s blue raspberry tea. I was really intrigued to see if its colour was strong enough to colour the cake blue, so I came up with the idea of using it instead of black tea in a tea loaf.  I did contemplate […]

Valentine’s Day Chocolate Miso Ramen

The idea of combining two of my favourite things- ramen and chocolate- had been brewing for some time. When I got my Kitchenaid spiralizer for Christmas I realised using it to make pear noodles and topping it with a rich chocolate sauce would make a fantastic dessert. The addition of white miso gives a slightly […]

Healthy January Salmon Miso Ramen with courgette noodles

I thought for January it would be good to create a healthier, lighter ramen recipe to detox the body after the indulgence of Christmas. Also, as I got a spiralizer attachment for my Kitchenaid artisan mixer for Christmas, I was keen to try vegetable noodles in ramen. The spiralizer is fast becoming my favourite kitchen […]

Hallowe’en Pumpkin Ramen

I love this time of year, with its burnt orange and brown hues, and pumpkins and witches adorning shops and houses in readiness for Hallowe’en. I have always loved decorating the house and doing a special meal, which goes back to Hallowe’en teas my Mum made when my brother and I were little. Last year […]

Curry Ramen with Roast Chicken and Turmeric

The first recipe I made for my blog was a curry ramen recipe, inspired by the dish I first tried at Shoryu Ramen in Regent Street. Find the recipe here. Since then, I have returned to Shoryu and tried their curry ramen dish again and decided to make a new curry ramen with a more […]
