Breaded pork tenderloin

Sunday, September 11th, 2016 | Food


Another recipe for the Fish Market cookbook. It is difficult to get the tenderloin cooked all the way through while still keeping the breadcrumbs crispy. The green bits were seaweed, which could do to be smaller too.


To serve, I stole some ideas from Cara’s Anglesey Come Dine With Me.

Not the perfect pizza

Friday, September 9th, 2016 | Food


After watching Heston Blumenthal’s In Search of Perfection on making the perfect pizza, I thought I would try and apply some techniques to my own. If anything, I think it made the situation worse.

I tried giving the dough a double rise and heating the pizza stone in the oven for an hour before I put the pizza in. It still did not crisp up very well though. I think I might have to try and build a wood-fired pizza oven on the balcony.

At the top of the photo, there are some Asahi beer french fries from the Fish Market cookbook. I managed to keep them separate by dropping the chips in separately but I think they could do to be thicker: they tasted too much of oil the whole way through the chip.

Speaking of imperfect things, here is my first attempt at spring rolls…


Definitely not a success. It took me a couple of attempts to keep the stuffing inside the spring roll case and even then they did not look very neat. In the end, I took the stuffing and turned it into a wrap.
