Billi Bi (4)

A mussel soup with saffron and wine which I found in ” The Little Book of Big Soups” by Lindsay Bareham. Serve with plenty of crusty bread to mop up the delicious liquor.

Flamiche (6)

A classic French dish from Picardy which i found in Claire Thomson’s latest book ” Home Cookery Year”. She makes it with a bread dough base rather than the traditional pastry crust and it works well.

Bath Soft Mac ‘N’ Cheese (4)

Park Farm in Kelston is the home of the Bath Soft Cheese Company and I will always call in there- usually for an ice cream- if walking in the area. This recipe uese the lovely cheeses they make which you can buy there and in local farmers markets. I found the recipe in ” The Bristol and Bath Cookbook”

Simple Stroganoff (4)

This version of beef stroganoff is from Delia Smith’s ” Complete Cookery Course”. It uses chuck steak which needs a longer cooking time than the recipe i have posted for Beef Stroganoff. Serve with plain boiled rice and a green salad.
