Citrus Yoghurt

Great as an accompanyment for Blackened Fish

Like all my recipes - quick and easy to make but looks good and tastes even better.

  • 300ml Greek style yoghurt
  • Zest from an orange
  • 1 lime
  • 50ml olive oil


Grate the zest from the orange and lime into the yoghurt.  You could also use a lemon in addition!  Squeeze the juice from the lime into the yoghurt and add the olive oil.  Mix well and set aside in the fridge until needed.

Fresh Lemon and Lime Sorbet

A taste of Sorrento from your own kitchen.

Easy to make, refreshing and looks great as a "palate cleanser" between courses. Great for dinner parties.


  • 2 Limes
  • 1 litre of cold water (1.75 pints)
  • 100g /4oz caster sugar
  • 350ml / 12fl lemon juice


Grate the zest from the limes and set aside.  Squeeze the juice from the limes and add to the water in a pan over medium heat.  Add the sugar and the zest and simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice, mix well.  Allow to cool.

When it is cold, pour the sorbet mixture into a shallow freezerproof container and freeze until ice crystals start to form around the edges.  Stir vigoursly with a fork.  Repeat every 20 minutes or so over a few hours until the mixture is set and no liquid remains.

Soften slightly before serving in scoops.

Hokey Pokey Honeycomb

Hokey Pokey is the best type of Honeycomb !

Great as a candy treat or as decoration with desserts like mousse, ice-cream or use a an ingredient of Rocky Road.

  • 75g / 3oz caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (aka bread soda)


Heat the sugar and golden syrup in a pan stirring constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Add in the bread soda and stir like crazy - the bread soda will froth up almost immediately.  Keep stirring until all the bread soda is dissolved and there are no lumps.

 Pour the mixture onto a sheet of grease-proof paper (or into grease-proof moulds for candy).  Allow to stand for 15 minutes until cold and then smash into pieces.

Excellent spinkled over ice-cream.
