Grill Smoke BBQ is Ben Tish’s (of Salt Yard Group Restaurants) newest book.   It’s one of those books that does what it says on the Tin.  Love to cook with fire or know someone that does?  Get it. We shot this book in 7 different amazing British locations and it was one of the …MORE


Those of you that know me, know I have deep ties to Malaysia. My mother, although of South Indian heritage, was born there, my wife Jasmin (coincidentally) is also from Malaysia – We were married in Kuala Lumpur the capital city and visit on a fairly regular basis. I doubt that anyone who has visited …MORE


So I’ve kept this one under wraps, but for the last year Olia Hercules and I, along with Style Department have had the luck and opportunity to work with Nando’s. I’ve always been a fan of Nando’s, ever since my first visit on a 3rd date with my then girlfriend and now wife Jasmin.  I liked …MORE

Homemade Takeaway

Mmmmm…Takeaway… I don’t know a single person that doesn’t like some form of takeaway.  Friday night Curry or Pizza… A Cornish Pasty, or maybe a bit of Chinese food… I love fish and chips (but the good kind, crispy batter, thick fresh fish, full of flavour – this is why I usually make it myself)  Perhaps …MORE


Mamushka was released on the 4th of June and was written by Olia Hercules. Olia and I spent so much time together working on this book that I now consider her a close friend.

Chick n Sours

When I think of Fried Chicken, I think of late night eating, that stop on the way home from having 1 or 2 too many drinks. You know what I mean, you’ve been there. It’s that meal that you wish you didn’t eat as soon as you finish it.  It’s battery farmed, way too salty, been …MORE


As I write this blog, it’s cold outside; and it’s also grey and getting dark and my memories of Brazil, the warmth of the sun on my skin and the feel of sand between my toes is starting to fade. I thought that writing this post might delay those memories from fading a little longer. …MORE

Cherry Varenyky Recipe

Unless you are from Eastern Europe or Russia, Varenyky probably isn’t one of those things that you’ve heard of… man what have you been missing! Varenyky is widely thought of as a national dish of Ukraine, and whilst working on Olia Hercules’ Ukrainian book this year, this was one of the many things that I was …MORE
