A collection of recipes where I hope to spread the word if it needs spreading and give away my trade secrets on request, many of which have been inspired by the children’s workshops in Kent that I run.

Viking recipes<br />

Eat Like a Viking

Ever popular, very healthy and simple to cook, these Scandinavian recipes conjure up the very image of food cooked over a warm campfire by our forebears.

The reality of these meals is that they were likely to have been cooked up by many North European civilisations over thousands of year and were not just exclusive to our friends in the North!

Chilli Recipes

Chilli Time!

Some like it hot or at least I do!

Here are some of my most popular dishes, both meaty and vegan.  Jam-packed with flavour and simple to cook. These dishes taste even better prepared outside over fire!

Roman Recipes

Roman Recipes

It is only until recently that life expectancy matched that of the Romans. As well as the many things they brought to these isle, their food and cooking techniques continue to inspire nearly 2000 years since they landed on the shores of Kent.

apple recipes

Apples, Apples, Apples

Living a 20 minute walk away from Brogdale, the home of the National Fruit Collection, it would be impossible not too include some of the cuisine that I’ve used on my workshops and event days at this awesome location.

Kitchen garden recipes

Kitchen Garden Recipes

As someone who tries to grow as much food as possible in my own kitchen garden, it is of course an honour to work with the gardening team at Belmont where I hold many of my public workshops. Included here is perhaps my most popular dish, my vegetable stir-fry, which I have cooked with thousands of children, some as young a 3!

winter vegan curry with naan bread

Beach Recipes

 Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to join up with HatHats Coffee at their Reculver Country park venue, and run  a series of healthy cooking workshops on the beach. Here is a selection of recipes that I have used in these sessions.

Sea bass cooking over an open fire using stone age techniques

Stone Age Cooking

This must rank as one of my favourite time periods of history (also the longest spanning 3 million years!) Here you can find some of my favourite Stone Age meals that I have enjoyed cooking in schools and at home. For me the sheer simplicity of some of these techniques shows us how our forebears were able cook and enjoy the food they hunted, gathered and eventually grew.
