Burts Spicy Chorizo and Chicken Club Sandwich

Writing Eating Exeter exposes me to a wealth of talented chefs and some of the best food that Devon has to offer.  But unlike many food bloggers, I’m actually a little limited in the kitchen.  Tori is my resident cheffy expert (even though she would never admit it) but recently an opportunity appeared for me to try some recipes that were well within my culinary … Continue reading Burts Spicy Chorizo and Chicken Club Sandwich

Our kitchen is about the size of a knat’s testicle and given the tiny amount of surface space we actually have, I am all for the student modus operandi when it comes to cooking.  There is no shame in using a jar of pesto opposed to fresh pesto that you make yourself, and I can’t start to say that it matches it in taste but … Continue reading Easy Chicken and Pesto Pasta – Ideal for beginners

For a number of years the legendary Sunday … Continue reading The Half Moon, Clyst St Mary, Exeter

But it’s hot.   It’s also very garlicky, the sort of quatities of garlic  involved would stun a man at 100 yards… Continue reading Inferno Stir Through Pasta – (Tomato and Mozzarella)
