About this Cook
I live in beautiful leafy Somerset in England. My Fella and I own a New/secondhand bookshop, my fella is also a tree Surgeon and also owns a tree surgery firm. We both adore gardening and own our own field where we grow our own veg.
My favorite things to cook
Anything, especuially new things ive not tried before, i like to learn constantly.
My cooking tragedies
I once made Stifado. 6 and a half hours of Marinating, 4 hours in the oven and half an hour on the hob to thicken it up. It smelt gorgeous and looked gorgeous. When we ate it we found the meat was off. This is sooooo weired because it didn't smell bad when i bought it from the butchers, in fact it smelt fine. I don't understand to this day why this was but it was such a shame. Oh well the veg i served with it were nice.:O(

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya
This morning i bought some huge prawns, not because I needed them I just couldn't resist them they looked so plump and succulent and thought what should i do with these. Then thought Ahh I know Paella or Jambalaya, preferring to make the Jambalaya i then set to work in finding a recipe. Of course straight away my first visit is to Chef John and yet again as it is every-time he came to my rescue. I'm going to go with this recipe but will be using a bag of mixed seafood and the prawns i got I will use to garnish the top. Thanks yet again Chef John cant wait to try this and will let you know how it goes.
