Shredded Sprouts with Prosciutto

Shredded Sprouts with Prosciutto I’ve cooked Christmas dinner in our house for the past four years and for each of them I’ve been trying to cook sprouts in a way that I could enjoy eating them. Although not a fan of any vegetable growing up, […]

Glazed Christmas Ham

Glazed Christmas Ham

Glazed Christmas Ham I’m sitting in Con’s sipping my fourth pint of the black stuff. I’m not a big drinker and with pint number four comes the merry feeling that only pints on Christmas Eve can give you. It’s a rather slow walk stumble home […]

Porchetta There is palpable tension in the air. As Shane munches away on his box of Ritz, two Lazio fans are becoming irate just a couple of rows behind us in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. Torino are leading by three goals to two and, from what […]
