  • All time best marinated Chicken

    This is our absolute favorite marinade for chicken. The longer you let it marinate, the more intense the flavour. We usually let it sit overnight in the refrigerator, but a few hours will do.

  • Creamy Garlic Scallops

    These creamy garlic scallops are great tasting with minimal ingredients and maximum flavour!

  • Apple Rhubarb Crisp

    Nothing says spring like rhubarb. Quick-to-prepare, single-serving fruit crisps like this one are an easy way to get dessert on the table anytime.

  • Caesar Dressing

    This recipe was allegedly found in an old newspaper. It purports to be from Earls Restaurant back in the day of the giant papier-mâché parrots and green and white umbrellas and Mocha Kahlúa Pie. True or not, it certainly tastes like the real thing.

  • Zucchini dish from the Hole in the Wall

    Margaret Shaw brought this recipe home from England in the late 1960's where it was served at the Hole in the Wall Restaurant, Bath. We have since found that it is a classic Italian dish called "Zucchini e Pomodori Gratinati"

  • Rhubarb Coffee Cake aka Moon Cake

    Ecstacy at afternoon tea

  • Ginger Salmon with Peaches and Red Onions

    In winter, mangoes can stand in for the peaches.

  • Marzipan

    Making your own marzipan or almond paste couldn't possibly be any easier - or tastier!

  • Greek Country Salad - Horiatiki

    A traditional Greek salad is a staple in just about any Greek restaurant anywhere in the world.

  • Onion Garnish

    Goes great on the side with beef - pork or chicken

  • Insalata Caprese

    The cook's main responsibility is to shop wisely. This salad stands or falls on the quality of the ingredients.
    The tomatoes should be small heirlooms if they are in season, or otherwise, B.C. cocktail tomatoes on the vine.
    The preferred cheese is Burrata, and the olive oil should be the higher quality kind, intended for drizzling.

  • Italian Vinaigrette

    This vinaigrette with an Italian flair is both easy and tasty.

  • Blueberry Chutney

    A great accompaniment to salmon or pork tenderloin.

  • Rhubarb Strawberry Pie

    This is a delicious, quite tart dessert. Serve with whipping cream or ice cream if desired.
    Raspberries are a good alternative to the strawberries.

  • Garden Peas, Prosciutto and Burrata

    Peas, prosciutto and burrata are combining forces for the ultimate seasonal appetizer. It’s ready to serve in fifteen minutes and you don’t even have to turn on the oven.

  • Linguine. with Green Olive Sauce and Zesty Breadcrumbs

    Bursting with the big brash flavors of green olives, anchovies, and capers, this herbaceous pasta sauce isn't afraid to bite back.

  • Italian White Bean Salad

    The dressing works with the beans very nicely in this salad. You can turn it into a whole meal by adding some tuna, prosciutto, or chicken tenders, and/or Romano cheese flakes. Variation: add some 1/4 inch zucchini cubes and small torn pieces of radicchio

  • Sauteed Prawns with Feta (Garides Saganaki)

    This traditional Greek recipe (Garides Saganaki) shows that Prawns, Feta and tomatoes are a great combination. It works beautifully, resulting in a harmonious balance of flavors. Though it can be made year round with canned tomatoes, it is sensational with fresh sweet ripe ones, so is best prepared in summer. Serve it as an appetizer or as a main course with rice. white beans or potatoes.
