Fish, Triple Cooked Chips and Proper Mushy Peas.

Been wanting to post this one for a while, finally got round to it this afternoon. Commonly known as England’s national dish it’d be rude for an English chef to not share his recipe.

Fettucine of beetroot with Salmon and Rocket.

The first one I ever made was a vegetarian risotto of goats cheese and butternut squash, the sour goats cheese worked in harmony with the sweet honey like squash…
