And when one forgets one’s friend is allergic to prawns, one very quickly whips up another tart. Sauted courgette, cream cheese and tomatoes. #courgette #creamcheese #tomato #tart #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw @helencompson @nattynibbles ...

When you get a huge courgette from one of your best friends it’s got to be special. Oh and some freshly dug potatoes too. And it just so happened Namayasai delivered my veggie box. Herbed courgette and prawn tart. Dairy free made with grated courgette, potato, shiso, basil flowers, shoyu pickled wild garlic leaves, shishito peppers and Isle of Wight tomatoes. To bind, 3 beaten eggs. To the friends who got a slice, hope you enjoyed!! Thank you Helen and Ikuko san. #courgette #prawns #potato #shiso #wildgarlic #egg #namayasai #iowtomatoes #shishito #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw @nattynibbles @helencompson @barnyardbollinger ...

Sunday brunch “a deux”. With copious coffee without a care in the world. Too lazy to get a table out in the garden so the kitchen table it is! Healthy eating. Pizza omelette using red cap totally skimmed milk and reduced fat mozzarella.

Ode to a very good friend. Quick hashed together open sandwich - smørrebrød - a thin slice of white sourdough smothered with perfectly home matured goats cheese, a simple fresh chèvre with ever so slightly gueyness just under the powder white crust. Baby everything - rainbow tomatoes, curly cucumbers, purple romaine, and crunchie fresh red radishes with just a little bite. Topped with the last of the homemade home grown DogStories fresh walnut and green tomato chutney. You know who you are and you know you are special to me. #smørrebrød #goatscheese #babyveg #babytomatoes #sourdough #rafish #curlycucumber #chutney #walnut @barnyardbollinger @nattynibbles @dogstorieslondon ...

My EXTRA opulent ingredient today. God they are so aromatically fresh. Dizzy with the gorgeous nose of these freshly picked bright green Sansho berries from the rather special Organic Namayasai farm. All I can think of is Unagi for these so so exquisite little gems. I will pickle some for later. Sansho berries are the fruit of the Japanese Prickly Ash - Zanthoxylum piperitum - a more delicate cousin of Chinese Sichuan peppercorn of hedonistic mouth numbing fame. Tonight someone is going to have a couple of these with smoked trout on some fresh seeded sourdough, me thinks. Oh theres lots of other just as fresh goodies in my veg box. More later. #sansho #special #namayasai #japanesefood #sichuanpeppercorn #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw @nattynibbles @ereladana @barnyardbollinger @wasabigrowersuk @dolswongeats @gohan.london @namayasaifarm ...

Simple supper chinese style daikon (Lorpark), carrot, sweetcorn and pork clear soup with a twist. Turned it into soupy noodles. Healthy option with all fat removed before serving. #daikon #pork #soup #prawns #noodles #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw
