Allspice Date and Mango Cake

If any single ingredient symbolises the beginnings of fusion food in England, it is Allspice.  Allspice is ground from a single berry (of the Pimento Dioica tree from Central America to be pedantic), but in the 15th Century the British thought it tasted like the combined flavours of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, so they called it Allspice.  285 more words

Persian Rock Cakes

Birthday Persian Rock Cakes

These little light cakes are a particular favourite of mine. They are quick, supremely easy to make and are very economical. Sprinkle a classically Persian ingredient into classically English cake mix which has stood the test of time and you have an extra special breakfast fit for a birthday or another occasion worth celebrating. 284 more words

Cherry and Pistachio Salad

Mid-Spring Pie: Sausage, Chickpea and Leek Filo Pie PLUS Fragrant Sausage Stew with Garlic Mash

This mixture makes enough to serve with mash the following day; the accompaniments are so different it is improbable that anyone will notice, but even if they do they’re just as unlikely to complain about this appetisingly savoury Southern European blend of ingredients. 445 more words
