Pre Burns Night tear ‘n’ share eggy bread. Haggis, neeps and tatties to follow, but I have strict instructions to park my lens. . . . . .

[Recipe] It’s been a thoroughly exhausting week and I’m now feeling a little smug about achieving something I considered impossible on Monday morning. I was seriously pooped earlier but I’m bouncing back with a generous bowlful of my chilli con carne with sriracha and maple roast cauliflower: speared and plunged into the chilli, of course. It’s this week’s FridayFeast. Here’s the chilli recipe: . Chilli Con Carne Ingredients: . 2 large onions finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, crushed 1 red pepper, chopped 2 tbsp oil 2 heaped tsp chilli flakes 2 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp sweet paprika 200ml beef stock 300g minced beef 200g minced pork 1 tin chopped tomatoes 3 tbsp tomato purée 1 tin red kidney beans 20g 70% dark chocolate 20g butter . . In a heavy casserole pot, fry the onions in a tsp of oil on a low heat for at least 15 minutes, stirring until translucent, then add the red pepper and garlic. Cook until soft, but not browned. Remove and set aside. Turn the heat up and brown the beef and pork mince in the same pot then pop the veg back in. Tip in the chilli flakes, cumin, paprika and mix. Add the beef stock, tomato purée and tomatoes and simmer very gently for at least an hour, stirring occasionally. If it becomes too thick, add a little water. Drain the kidney beans and add to the pot along with the chocolate and butter and simmer for another 10 minutes. . . . . . . #fridayfeast #fridaynight #cosyfood #comfortfood #chilliconcarne #foodstyling #eeeeeats #weekendvibes #foodography #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #instafood #foodphotography #foodlover #fromabove #flatlay #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #chilli #igdaily #igfood #recipes #recipe #easyrecipes #recipeshare

Movie night with Roast Poussin, Scottish honey, lemon, thyme and smashed potatoes with garlic butter and green beans. I’ve downloaded The Mission: haven’t watched it in eons.

I was undeservedly ambushed by lurgy a few days ago. Thankfully, it rarely hangs around but just to be sure, I’ve made a sort of Massaman Beef Curry to see it off. The beef was cooked for 3 hours in coconut milk, tomato purée, star anise, kashmiri chillies, ginger and added to a sauce with shallots, lemongrass, peanuts, galangal, bay and cardamom. . . . . . . . . #fridayfeast #fridaynight #cosyfood #comfortfood #curry #beefcurry #foodstyling #eeeeeats #weekendvibes #foodography #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #instafood #foodphotography #foodlover #fromabove #flatlay #NotParticularlyAuthentic #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #beef #igdaily #igfood

It’s been over 2 months since I made something sweet: I rarely hanker. Occasionally though, this happens. I’ve gone a bit freestyle with a Tiptree Tawny Marmalade Bread and Butter Pudding with Glendronach Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Midweek #instadaily #eeeeeats #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #thefeedfeed #foodstagram #dessert #instafood #breadandbutter #feedfeed #foodphotography #foodlover #pudding #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #fromabove #flatlay #heresmyfood #whisky #scotchwhisky

I’m extending a lazy Saturday by making an effortless supper (recipe below). Pork Belly and Kimchi Noodles with Fried Egg. It’s a bit like bokkeum-bap which uses rice, but I craved slurp. . . . INGREDIENTS 1 tsp sesame oil 150g pork belly 250g jar of good Kimchi (chop it up if the pieces are large) 1 tbsp honey 1 tsp mustard powder 400g fresh egg noodles 1 egg Pinch chilli flakes or Aleppo pepper Salt and white pepper . Slice the pork belly into half centimetre pieces and heat the sesame oil in a large medium to hot pan. Fry off the pork until some of the edges are browned and set aside (now is a good time to fry the egg in a separate pan). Turn the heat down a little and add the Kimchi to the pan with the honey, salt, pepper and mustard powder. Lob the fried pork and the noodles into the pan after the mixture has cooked for about 2-3 minutes. Slide the lot into a bowl, crown with your egg and adorn with the pepper or chilli flakes. . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #instadaily #supper #eggs #eeeeeats #chilling #foodporn #foodpics #kimchi #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #noodles #foodstagram #fromabove #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #nikon_photography @clarence_court @alexpoleironwork

It’s been a protracted first week back and the almighty downpour here is forecast to continue relentlessly until Sunday. I’m battening down the hatches and envisaging a weekend of sloth and pottering about in the kitchen. This week’s FridayFeast is Venison Faggots with rosemary and a red wine, red onion and cranberry gravy. I guess pork is typically the meat of choice for faggots, but I’ve used local Scottish venison with heart, liver and caul fat so it’s quite rich, hence the sharp cranberries to cut through it. Baked mashed potato with butter and broccoli on the side. . . . . . . . #fridayfeast #fridaynight #cosyfood #comfortfood #foodstyling #eeeeeats #weekendvibes #foodography #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #instafood #foodphotography #foodlover #fromabove #flatlay #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #venison #igdaily #igfood

I’ve earned a couple of brown food stripes after a few days of salads. Mughlai Chicken: the paste base has a smack of ginger and garlic with mild chilli notes and almonds. These are chicken thighs which pack so much flavour and you can find the recipe in Nigella’s ‘Feast’. A little smoked chilli mung dal on the side. . . . . . . . . . . #instadaily #eeeeeats #Supper #comfortfood #midweek #chicken #chickendinner #feedfeed #foodpics #indianfood #thefeedfeed #foodstagram #brownfood #instafood #cosy #midweek #foodphotography #foodlover #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #fromabove #heresmyfood #curry

Saturday night. Sherlock Holmes - Complete Works, given to me by a dear friend last year and a simple, unauthentic bowlful of pasta with sausage, garlic, tomato and cream. I’ve used lasagne sheets, simply boiled: they’re not confined to oven baking, but you may need to tease the sheets apart in the pan as they cook. . . . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #chill #instadaily #sausage #books #eeeeeats #chilling #foodporn #foodpics #pasta #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #lasagne #foodstagram #fromabove #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #nikon_photography

Poker night with a few excellent chums: I guess it qualifies as the first party of 2020, although it’ll definitely be the last for some time. This week’s resting FridayFeast is a two rib roast beef from Smiddy Butchery with bowls of tiny salad potatoes, cornichons and coleslaw. One fork each. #fridayfeast #fridaynight #poker #partytime #comfortfood #foodstyling #roastdinner #eeeeeats #weekendvibes #beefribs #foodography #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #instafood #foodphotography #foodlover #beef #roastbeef #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #ribroast @smiddybutchery

Boxing week (or Romjul, if you prefer) is thoroughly enjoyable, but somewhat bewildering: apparently it’s Sunday. I’ve made beef, bacon and thyme lasagne and I intend to scare the bejesus out of myself later with a copy of Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood & Co - The Screaming Staircase. . . . . . . . . #Sunday #sundaynight #romjul #books #instadaily #cheese #italian #eeeeeats #foodporn #booknight #foodpics #lasagna #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #italian #foodstagram #pasta #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #nikon_photography

The best thing about trudging through a dank forest in the dark for an hour isn’t so much the invigorating rain or uplifting fresh air. It’s about the anticipation of what is to come: Keen’s cheddar cheese toasties with pickled jalapeńos and a quick, garlicky tomato soup. . . . . . . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #instadaily #cheese #eeeeeats #chilling #foodporn #foodpics #fromabove #foodography #cheeseontoast #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #flatlay #foodstagram #cheese #cheesy #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #grilledcheese #comfortfood #foodporn #nikon_photography #lovecheese
