Hello! I lived in Hampshire in the UK when I started this blog, hence the title. We moved along the coast to a rented property with the world’s most unreliable oven, and so I had to stop blogging. Happily, I’m now able to revamp hampshirecook.com, so please accept my apologies as things may look messy for a while.
I’m hoping the new website will bring you more lovely recipes, pictures and a permanent set of recipe resources.
In understanding the kind of recipes I post, I have Waitrose tastes and an Asda budget, with almost no time to languish and experiment in the kitchen, much as I might like to.
My practical philosophy is the more ingredients used, the more expensive and time-consuming the dish will be. This means I tend to limit ingredients, though hopefully not in a gimmicky way. And we don’t do too much processed stuff here–the best advice I have ever heard on food is never buy products that contain ingredients that could not conceivably be lurking in your own cupboards. Well, I try.
The other thing I should mention is that the recipes I use, for very boring allergy-related reasons (unless you have an allergy too), are cinnamon-free and chili/paprika-free. That doesn’t stop me though making a purringly-good prawn curry.
