I’m hitting the sofa with a sort of Kashmiri Lamb Chop curry and An Audience With Billy Connolly from October 1985. If you haven’t seen it, seek it out: it may put a wee smile on your face. . . . . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #instadaily #comedynight #eeeeeats #chilling #foodporn #foodpics #supper #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #foodstagram #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #instafoodie #nikon_photography #heresmyfood @hautescuisines @meatpeter @nethertonfoundry

[Recipe] A pinch of optimism in unsettling times. Sadly, a few selfish panic-buyers are depriving vulnerable and hard-up families of food and basic essentials: some of the stories on my timeline are heartbreaking. So for this week’s FridayFeast, I’ve turned to @jack_monroe: the undisputed champion of frugal cooking. Her book, ‘Tin Can Cook’ is all about ridiculously cheap - and nourishing - store cupboard recipes, primarily using widely available canned ingredients. This is ”Something Like A Feijoada”: beef, black bean and mandarin stew. The beef, mandarins and beans (I’ve used cannellini) are all tinned produce, and you may already have the remaining ingredients in your kitchen cupboards or freezer. And yes, it was delicious. Here’s the recipe: . . Serves 4. . 100g frozen onion or 1 small onion, finely sliced, 9p . 2 tbsp garlic, 6p . 2 tbsp tomato puree or ketchup, 3p . 1 tbsp paprika, 1p . 1 chicken or beef stock cube, 3p . 1 x 300g tin of mandarins, drained, 35p . 1 x 400g tin of stewed steak, drained and rinsed, £1.56 . a few pinches of chilli flakes, 1p . . Tip the black beans into a large saucepan. Add the onions and garlic, tomato puree and paprika. Cover with 700ml water and crumble in the stock cube, then bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes, until the beans have started to soften. Add the mandarins and stewed steak to the pot. Cook for a further 20 minutes. Finish with a little chilli to taste, and serve. Weerascal served with boiled rice mixed with a little juice from the mandarins . . #fridayfeast #fridaynight #tincancook #cosyfood #comfortfood #staysafe #foodstyling #eeeeeats #weekendvibes #foodography #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #instafood #instafoodie #foodphotography #foodlover #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #corona #igfood

Kicking off movie night with Mussel and Cockle Soup. Ayrshire bacon, celery, fish stock, white wine, cream, dill, a shovelful of Abernethy butter and a touch of harissa oil. . . . . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #MovieNight #instadaily #supper #soup #eeeeeats #chilling #foodporn #foodpics #supper #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #Seafood #foodstagram #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #nikon_photography #heresmyfood @hautescuisines

Tonight’s drive to the little weekend pad was a welcome respite from urban supermarket pandemonium. The fear is justifiably real, but a united front and vigilance will beat this beast. This week’s FridayFeast is Boulangère Potatoes with Dukeshill Wiltshire ham: cooked (covered) for an hour in chicken stock, Dijon mustard and a touch of white wine.

Embarrassed to admit, I haven’t made this since last summer: crab, chorizo and Sherry gnocchi. It’s a wonderfully cheering recipe by @john_whaite from his book, Flash In The Pan. A little comfort in unfathomably dark times. . . . . . . . . . . . #staysafe #midweek #instadaily #seafood #comfortfood #foodstyling #indulgent #eeeeeats #crab #italianfood #instadaily #foodography #Supper #spanish #sherry #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #instafood #foodphotography #foodlover #gnocchi #cookbook #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood

What a thrilling week. I’ve just finished a shoot for the BBC with @chefnicknairn and @dougievipond: their new series of ‘The Great Food Guys’ will broadcast soon. Sadly, I can’t share any of my food shots yet, but here’s a few of the portraits: Sanjeev Kohli, Val McDermid and Nick. I think a large dram is overdue. . . . . . . . . . #Knackered #portraitphotography #portrait #fridaynight #saturdaynight #instadaily #chilling #foodstagram #instafoodie #nikon_photography

Blood orange tart. My first attempt was calamitous: pastry was too dry and it disintegrated like a Scottish football team’s World Cup campaign. Anyhow, I have some custard on the go and an old black and white movie beckons. . . . . . . . #Saturday #saturdaynight #instadaily #movienight #eeeeeats #chilling #foodporn #foodpics #supper #foodography #comfortfood #foodpix #instafood #orange #foodstagram #foodphotography #foodlover #thefeedfeed #feedfeed #foodporn #instafoodie #nikon_photography #heresmyfood @hautescuisines

This week’s FridayFeast is Gnocchi with Vodka, Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream with croutons, toasted with a little basil-infused oil. Tonight’s playlist is all 1970s, so I guess it’s also a homage to Ugo Tognazzi. I took my first slurp of penne alla vodka at little restaurant in Sarzana about 25 years ago and the chef was rather enthusiastic about its emulsifying properties and how it brings flavours together. In other news, storm Jorge is pleasingly underwhelming. . . . . . . . . #fridayfeast #fridaynight #cosyfood #comfortfood #italian #foodstyling #eeeeeats #weekendvibes #foodography #Supper #feedfeed #foodpics #foodstagram #comfortfood #italianfood #instafood #instafoodie #foodphotography #foodlover #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #pasta #igfood

An evening of paperwork beckons, but I have a midweek curry for company: hogget with tamarind and coconut, shredded cabbage with turmeric and garlic and a dollop of mango chutney. Probably no provenance whatsoever, but it’s right up my street. . . . . . . . #midweek #Lamb #eeeeeats #Supper #motivation #midweekmotivation #supper #feedfeed #foodpics #instadaily #instadailyphoto #foodstagram #curry #instafood #spicy #foodphotography #foodlover #nikon_photography #foodporn #foodpornography #ig_food #foodography #heresmyfood #hogget bowl by @alexpoleironwork

Tempestuous winds again tonight, so I’m hitting the sofa with @dranniegray’s ‘Victory in the Kitchen’ and a comforting bowlful of seared salmon and Singapore noodles.

This week’s FridayFeast is a sugar pit bacon chop from @meatpeter with a bucketful of slow-cooked, mustardy and smoky baked beans, parmentier potatoes and caramelised apples. The rain is measureless here tonight: a salvo of hefty drops on a metal roof. Inexplicably comforting—a childhood thing, I suppose.
