Was taught this great trick/technique yesterday. put a load of peeled garlic cloves in a plastic water bottle with a good pinch of salt. then shake like crazy!!! 😜 😝 #shakeitlikeapolaroidpicture turns into the perfect paste for grilling meat, adding to sauces etc. #lifehack #garlic #marinade #garlicpaste #rwanda

In the morning the nijo market traders steam king crab legs ready for sending across japan. if you get there early enough and give them a charming smile (or confuse them with your three words of japanese) they might let you watch and learn and then ask you to share their breakfast with them.l πŸ¦€ β˜•οΈ the freshest, tastiest crab i’ve ever had (and fist time i’ve had it for breakfast!). πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ #sapporo #sapporofishmarket #hokkaido #japan #market #crab #kingcrab #breakfastofchampions

Got up at 6am to visit the sapporo’s legendary nijo fish market that sells produce from across hokkaido. the island is famous for its seafood and i’ve already eaten the best sushi i’ve ever had, but as for the market? wow. more like a crab and shellfish-fest. i have visited fish markets across the world and i’ve never seen anything like it. the biggest c***s i’ve ever seen (king crabs, hairy crabs, snow c***s and dozens i had no clue about!), clams bigger than my hand, sea snails, sea urchin, salmon eggs. πŸ¦€ πŸ¦€πŸ¦€πŸ¦€

My absolute favourite that my mother used to cook, kedgeree! she used to prepare this as a breakfast in the stately home where she worked. imagine having this waiting for you every morning when you wake up! πŸ€— makes a great dinner too. interestingly my mum never added curry powder to it, and i always loved it that way. but for my version i did add a little and a little extra turmeric. and prepared the rice like a pilau - cooking in some butter first and then used the water i cooked the fish in as a stock. oh and as a final luxury used duck eggs (a memory of childhood). of course not as good as my mum’s, but not bad πŸ˜‰ #homecooking #foodmemories #mothersknowbest #familyreceipe #familystories #foodstories #kedgeree #basmatirice #rice #haddock #smokedhaddock #eggs #softboiledegg #lemon #lemonjuice #butter #lotsofbutter #parsley #onearmedchef

This is most precious cook book i have!
as a teenager my mum was evacuated and ended up a servant in a stately home. it was the late 1930’s and she found herself as the kitchen assistant. an east london girl, i remember her telling me her first job was to skin a rabbit, she’d never even see one! 😳
growing up food was a huge part of our family life. though sadly as a child i never cooked with her, i was interested in other things! my mother left a long time ago, but she left me this gift, a cook book she wrote, and in it, every recipe i remember as a child. it’s my link to her, and a link to the food of a past generation. a time of suet puddings, kedgeree and yes spotted dick/roly-polly pudding - my childhood favourite πŸ€— over the coming weeks i’m going to go back through some of these recipes, research them and learn to cook them. food is so connected to our stories, our memories and through food we stay close to those who went before πŸ’• #foodstories #tradition #familystories #familyreceipe #familytradition #mothersknowbest
