Cooking Gammon

I think I might have this thing for cooking gammon joints and then presenting them in a bowl. Going through my camera roll it turns out the only food I feel is worthy of being presented in a bowl is gammon and I have absolutely no idea why because dinner in a bowl is so […]

A Twist On Chicken Risotto

Risotto never looks overly pretty unless you put it in one of those weird small bowls with huge risen plate surroundings.
