This grill pan was provided free of charge by Kitchenware Direct for the purposes of this review, however all images, text and opinions are my own. Apologies for the absence, folks! There’s been a lot of happenings here in the world of your Kitchen Wench. Lots of ups. Lots of downs. And lots of in-between! Part of […]

Barbequed Chilli & Garlic Prawns with Couscous Salad

Before I get started, I just have to say thank you to everyone. It has been a tough few weeks since the loss of my darling Mr Woofy and I must admit that there are times that the grief became almost too much for me to bear. But so many of you have reached out […]

Tasty Tempura

What is it about frying food that makes it so delicious? I mean, I have to honestly say that I question creations such as fried cookie dough (come on guys, are you serious??) and deep fried butter (I genuinely thought that my brother was KIDDING when he told me about this. And then I googled […]

Stuff yer squid!

*Sigh* So, am I the most lax food blogger, or what? Happy belated new year, dear readers.

Bring on the banchan, pt 2

I have to admit that the response to my mother’s Korean recipes has been utterly overwhelming – so much so that I’ve been pestering her over the past few months to start writing down her recipes into some sort of cookbook. Unfortunately, since she cooks instinctively and by memory, the idea of having to sit […]
