The humble steak

Trying to pick this back up again with a simple recipe. Steak plus veggies. I've been trying the low carb thing again at least until I get back into being active. Here's a good recipe that is really really reliant on good ingredients. Ingredients:Steak (i prefer ribeye or new York)SaltPepperAny veggie that absorbs sauceRed wine... Continue Reading →

Red Sauce Pasta

Not the prettiest but back to basics. Pasta is one of the first things I learned to cook and this is the first recipe that I used completely ad lib. That being said there are many many variations that I use but the Creole style meat sauce is my typical go to for a throw... Continue Reading →


My first trip to Japan, stayed mostly in Tokyo and that's where most of my foodie discoveries were. I enjoy street food and hole in the wall type places Nadeshiko Sushi in Akihabara- I'm told female sushi chefs are rare. Good sushi and the chef was good to talk to to practice Japanese. I felt...

Beef Wellington

I have made this dish twice, I preferred the first (pictures will be presented later) but this one did not turn out too badly. In the future I will dry out the mushroom extra, and not use bacon as I feel the bacon fat that comes from the cooking creates a very moist concoction that... Continue Reading →
