A battle-scarred creative director who cooks, styles and takes photos.

I'm a designer and art director with 30 years experience in the creative industry and a director and owner of PRC; an award-winning design agency specialising in packaging and branding for consumer goods. This is my weekend fix - cooking, styling, recipes and photography. Everything on this web site was created in a little kitchen, in a caravan which isn't much bigger. All in the heart of The Trossachs, Scotland.

Movie night with triple cooked beef dripping Maris Piper chips and my take on Chip Shop Curry Sauce. Super-simple and freezable. Good oven chips isn’t shameful. Here’s the sauce recipe: . 30g butter, 3 tsp chilli oil, 2 onions (finely chopped), 2cm cube ginger (grated), 1tsp demerara sugar, 3 tbsp mild curry powder, 1 tsp turmeric, 30g chopped sultanas, 4 garlic cloves (crushed), 4 tbsp malt vinegar, 1 tsp ground fennel, 300ml vegetable stock, 1tbsp Greek yoghurt (optional), heaped tbsp cornflour, black pepper and salt to taste. . Heat the butter and oil in a pan over a low heat. Add the onions, ginger and garlic: fry until soft. Throw in the curry powder, sultanas, turmeric, vinegar and ground fennel and fry for a couple of minutes, then pour in the veg stock and add the sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer 40 mins: stir occasionally. Mix the cornflour with 2 tbsp water and add to the sauce. Stir until the sauce is thickened and add the yoghurt, if using. A hand blender is your friend if you’d like it even silkier. . . . . . . . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #recipe #recipes #movies #movienight #instadaily #currysauce #eeeeeats #foodporn #chipshop #foodpics #fries #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #chips #foodstagram #flatlay #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #nikon_photography #fromabove #heresmyfood

Roast Chicken with Ayrshire Bacon, Mushrooms, Cream and Vermouth. A little drizzle of parsley butter for extra smiles and it had to be waxy potatoes with Abernethy butter. . . . . . . . . . . #Fridayfeast #weekendvibes #brownfood #instadaily #eeeeeats #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #cosy #thefeedfeed #bacon #foodstagram #instafood #roastchicken #comfortfood #feedfeed #foodphotography #foodlover #chicken #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #lecreuset #heresmyfood #fromabove

Inspired by last week’s trip to Slovakia and Poland, tonight’s FridayFeast begins with Roasted Garlic Soup and Pierogi Ruskie (dumplings with potato and cheese). I’ve sprinkled bacon and finely chopped caramelised onion on top: it’s quite common on dumplings and potato dishes. I should say, the combination of garlic soup and Pierogi will probably offend those who espouse authenticity, but frankly, I don’t care. . . . . . . . . #Fridayfeast #weekendvibes #brownfood #instadaily #eeeeeats #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #polish #thefeedfeed #foodstagram #garlic #instafood #soup #comfortfood #feedfeed #foodphotography #foodlover #pierogi #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #cod #heresmyfood #slovakia

I’m finally home with feet up, glass of vino in hand and a much needed express supper: Cacio e Pepe. I intend to be recumbent for the rest of the evening. . . . .’. . . . #instadaily #eeeeeats #Supper #comfortfood #midweektreat #meatfreemonday #feedfeed #foodpics #meatfree #cacioepepe #thefeedfeed #foodstagram #notauthentic #instafood #pasta #midweek #foodphotography #foodlover #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #fromabove #heresmyfood #pasta #vegetarian

6,500 feet up on the The High Tatras this afternoon. I heartily recommend a visit to Slovakia. It’s blessed with breathtaking vistas, has the lowest crime rate in Europe and is one of the cleanest countries I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. The people are just lovely, too. What a week: such a joy working with @romygill at the #LadyChefs event in Poprad with @Miki_Sisak. I will return. . . . . . . . . . #Ladychefs #freshair #hightatras #bracing #mountains #Slovakia #landscapelovers #amworking #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #instalandscape #visitslovakia🇸🇰 #nikon_photography
