You might be wondering where I came up with the name for the site? Well, they say write about what you know about and during lockdown, my main oven broke down. Buying a new oven at the best of times can take time but this was a bit of a nightmare. I finally found the one I was looking for and waited for delivery – on the day, I got a call to say it would be with me in an hour (brilliant!)..half an hour later, I got a call looking for directions (strange…) another half hour no sign of an oven. Thinking they were lost, I called the shop only to be told it was faulty and couldn’t be delivered! Anyway, I finally got a new oven but it took a couple of months to arrive and that provided ample opportunities to try out dishes that could be done on a hob or a small top oven so that’s what you will find here – tasty dishes that don’t take much hassle or equipment….you will also find more complicated recipes and approaches to try out – I’m a professional chef and lockdown meant a lot of time at home – time I thought I’d put to use perfecting some of my own recipes and sharing them with you. I hope you enjoy!
