About

I love food in general and home cooking in particular but, to be honest, I'm slightly obsessed by recipes. Regrettably, I was hopeless at recording the recipes that I'd devised or that I'd accidentally bumped into over the years and that's why I started this blog. It was an attempt to make myself a bit more disciplined about writing things down. Happily, it's worked pretty well for me.

Most of the recipes on this blog are fairly straightforward and easy to cook at home. They could come from anywhere but most are Western European because that's what I know best. In fact, if they're not British, then they may well have a French accent. That's partly because I've spent some time there but it's also because French recipes seem less common and less fashionable these days and I don't want to forget them.

This is not in any way a commercial blog and any product mentioned has been paid for with hard-earned (well, moderately hard-earned) cash. In addition, I never accept any form of advertising, partnerships, sponsorship or any so-called “guest posts” from commercial organisations.

If you'd like to leave a comment or drop me an email, then I'd be very happy to hear from you but I don’t have any social media accounts. I don't think this is entirely due to me being a curmudgeon: I'm just not very good at electronic communication and I can never find the time to improve. You may need to be a little patient with me. 


If you were wondering about the title of the blog, then go ask Alice or, even better, her friend the White Knight.
