Persian Chicken and Avocado Salad at Leon Restaurant | Summer Food

2 Jul

Summer is here and we’re all striving to tone up, lose weight, look hot and for some of us – show off pieces of our body that nobody wants to see. Ever.

Anyway enough of some of the sights I see in London – have you been to Leon recently? They’ve not long ago introduced a super tasty Persian Chicken and Avocado Salad.

When Leon introduces their new additions to their menu they do it in the most wonderful way – using social networking and placards outside of their restaurant. The marketing certainly works for me (as you may have seen in my Poached Egg Cups post). I regularly find myself hot-footing it into the nearest branch (almost always Old Compton Street) to feed my food fetish.

Restaurant Review | Heart and Soul Caribbean Restaurant and Wine Bar, Lea Bridge Road Leyton, London

17 Sep

There is always a spark of interest when a new restaurant opens in East London – particularly the part of East London I am in (Wanstead/Leytonstone/Leyton) and so I was delighted when my friend Cheryl opened her new venture – a Caribbean restaurant called Heart and Soul Restaurant in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton.

Within weeks of opening, Chanelle had made me envious with her elaborate descriptions of the seafood dishes she had experienced, cooked to perfection by the wonderful chef Mikey.

Summer may well and truly be over in London – but I’m still continuing to experiment with Stylist Magazine recipes. I’m building a nice archive of “must try recipes” from their weekly offerings.

This week – Bill Granger’s “ultimate power salad” aka Salmon and Herb salad with “Green Goddess dressing” is in the spotlight.

Salmon and Herb Salad – as published in Stylist Magazine 1 September 2010

There is so much packed into this salad that’s good for you – a generous helping of the freshest herbs. Dill, parsley, mint, basil. What more could you ask for?

Recipe | The best homemade coleslaw | Summer BBQ Side Dish

4 Jul

It’s the season for gatherings and BBQ’s. As well as the “goes without saying” bottle I walk with – I can’t turn up to someone’s house without a dish. My dishes tend to be either macaroni cheese or my special home made coleslaw. I leave the meat to The Man.

The ingredients that make my coleslaw special is the addition of spring onions, a squeeze of honey and a good dollop of wholegrain mustard. It also helps if you use savoy cabbage as it has a lovely crunchy texture and looks amazing.
