Recipes and inspiration

The following are a collection of recipes that I have cooked at home using our meat and I hope they will provide you with some ideas. I'll add more now and then. I am well known amongst family and friends as a bit of a slap dash cook, and I use recipes for inspiration and generally I’m not very good at following them to the letter (unless if I’m baking). Depending upon how key the ingredients are I’m happy to substitute them for something else if I don’t have it in stock or don’t like it, and I often cut corners if it looks overly complicated for little reason. Alex regularly jokes ‘So what’s this then?’ with the reply being something along the lines of ‘Well, it’s based on…’. So, I encourage you to experiment, and not to be too worried if you don’t end up with the ‘exact, perfect dish’. Is it tasty? Good, enjoy it then!
