***Recipe of the Week 1999.***
Warming food for the cold month after Christmas. Starting with a old recipe
which goes back at least four generations in my family.
It is still cold enough to stick to warming food. We had a quick trip to the
US with the Jambalaya last month, this month we will go to Europe for our
After our quick trip round some of the countries of Europe I thought we stay
in England for March. Approaching spring there is no better place to be.
One of my favourite cuisines has to be Indian. From my first attempts at going
for a curry when a seventeen year old to attempting to cook my own it has been
a wonderful food adventure. The recipes this month come from the first Two
Portly Gentlemen Feature available soon at this site.
Matthew (the other Portly Gentleman) takes over providing recipes for this month.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
June is in and midsummer approaches so time for some al fresco cooking outside
on the barbecue. The recipes here and others will form the second Two Portly
Gentlemen cooking feature. Here's to the lazy days of summer relaxing with
good food (and drink) in the garden.
July and the lazy days of summer continue. We are back to providing a mix of
recipes with no particular theme. Matthew and I will just put up what comes to
hand. We are also happy to take requests, so if you have a recipe you would
like to see drop us a line and we well see what we can find.
Holidays are great things. The trouble is I have not had time to keep up with the recipes.
Apologies for that. At the end of the month we have the Garlic Festival so a couple of
my favourite recipes involving that wonderful ingredient will appear.
I was lucky enough to go on a trip to Vienna last month and so a couple of ideas/recipes picked
up there will appear this month. I am also sorry to learn of the death of Jennifer Patterson,
one of our inspiration The Two Fat Ladies. She will remembered fondly by Matthew and I for wonderful
statements like "To finish off the bubble and squeak sprinkle the lard on top" and "Cook for about
20 minutes for rare. If you don't like beef rare don't bother cooking it." They may not be
exact quotes but you get the idea. She had a great joie de vivre and will be a great loss.
Every so often as a Portly Gentleman I attempt to be less portly. The favourite set of "healthy" recipes
I have come across were from a diet I tried from Boots. I have lost the booklet now so the recipes that appear
this month are adaptations from what I remember. They are probably not that healthy in the form they appear
here, but they are very tasty! The brown rice recipe is a really sinful one. There was a
vegetable soup diet that did the rounds last year and the last day involved brown rice. As I am not a fan of
brown rice and it was the last meal of the weeks diet I broke the diet in style.
A bit of a mix this month. The first recipe is for American pancakes as cooked by a friend, and as various
members of my family have gone into Christmas production I will try to get a Christmas cake and Christmas
pudding recipe out of them.
