Duck with Rum (4-6)

This recipe from Guadeloupe is best made with richly flavoured dark rum from the French Islands, but any good dark rum will do. This is from ” The Cooking of the Caribbean” by Elizabeth Lambert Ortiz.

Mussels with Curry Cream Sauce (2)

This is from ” Belgo Cookbook” by Denis Blais and Andre Plisnier. Its a great source for recipes for Mussels ( and indeed other Belgian dishes) so if you eat shellfish and love them as much as i do I recommend hunting out a copy. Mussels are packed with minerals. high in protein and low in saturated fats so one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Enjoy.

Alpine Macaroni Cheese (4)

I am clearly on a Mac n Cheese roll today which probably means i need some comfort food. Here is a version from Felicity Cloake. Now i will let you in on a little secret for those who share my love of the better versions of this dish. . If you live in or near Bristol then there is a van which sells yummy Mac n Cheese called Alp Mac- usually at least three or more versions. At the moment they can be found at Finzels Reach and Harbourside Food Markets. You can check out their Alp Mac Facebook page for more information.
