I used lamb rump here but you can just as easily use chops or lamb steaks. And there are many variations on salsa verde: tweak and taste until you have something you like. It would be lovely with a handful of wild garlic chopped into it, if you can find some. Swap the tarragon for basil if you prefer it. The important thing is that it's green, herby and pungent.
Don't worry. This wasn't some elaborate bet that I lost. It wasn't something that I had planned to do, just to see if I could. In fact, I'm not sure it's even something I would have ever done if I hadn't been in a situation where, if I didn't eat vegan, I would have starved.
If you've spent any great deal of time on Facebook lately, you will have seen a growing number of short, colourful recipe videos from the likes of Tastemade and BuzzFeed's Tasty.

A fillet of beef, what's known as a tenderloin in the US, is a princely cut and so it should be because it costs a king's ransom.

There, that's the self-justification out of the way.
The weekend brunch. Giving us carte blanche to booze before midday and eat a billion, béchamel-laden calories. I'm sure there are some that think this mid-way meal a waste of time and money, but they are deranged.
I adore one-pot cooking, finding it almost therapeutic. There's something incredibly relaxing about escaping to the kitchen, glass of vino in hand, slowly building up the flavours of my culinary creations.
Who doesn't love pizza? It's one of the great joys in life, and with such a wide range of available styles and toppings it's easily one of the most versatile foods around. But this time, we're taking the classic pepperoni pizza and giving it a twist.
Dusty, hot, chaotic, overwhelming and unfriendly. That's what I was expecting Morocco's 'red city' Marrakech to be like. From descriptions by friends, I didn't think I would like it, but hey - it would be an 'experience'.
With a jar of Nutella in my cupboard that needed to be uses asap, I wanted a lovely chocolate hazelnut cake and whilst I'm using the famous chocolate hazelnut spread, the pairing of ground almonds made this cake a refreshing and "lighter" change to all the chocolate cakes I have used.
While the traditional sushi with rice is pretty straightforward, in my effort to reduce grains and maximizes nutrition in my diet I wanted to take a step further and create a sushi roll packed with a powerhouse of nutrition.
When I first tried my hand at sourdough, I could have passed the loaves onto historical re-enactors to use as cannonballs. I'm a fair hand at most kinds of cooking but the talent for making a decent sourdough eluded me.
For me, the other big issue linked to meat consumption is its affect on the environment. When land is used for raising animals instead of growing crops, this can have a profound effect on the environment.
Exercise wise, I didn't put any pressure on myself to start doing big lengthy gym sessions. I done little workouts in the house when I had a second and I made sure I eased back into it slowly.
