(from Arabella) Another scrumptious way of cooking sprouts. I love them in all variations, raw and cooked, but some people are sproutphobic, usually because they were forced to eat overcooked soggy sulphurous sprouts at school. And for British Christmas lunch eaters, sprouts can be an annual nightmare. But no more! Try this for starters. Maybe not as a starter, but as a first pro-sprout recipe.

Smoked salmon a la Preston

22 Aug

Inspired by Heathcotes Brasserie's more elegant photograph

Smoked salmon might not sound exactly cheap, but as a starter, it goes quite a long way with a big flavour and some pretty trimmings from the garden. It might fall into the not-exactly-cheap bracket of cheapeasydelicious, but it’s certainly easy and definitely delicious.

This was inspired by a photo on the Heathcotes Brasserie Facebook page, of smoked salmon with radish and sour cream. No recipe, so I’ve guessed. And – unlike the Heathcotes chefs – as a food stylist I have a long way to go…
