Hummus, served with freshly-baked pitta ticks all the boxes for me. It is simply delicious, good for you, and can be served as either a snack or a complete meal (with fresh vegetables). If you include the fact that it´s vegetarian, what´s not to like? (read more…)
We have a delicious range of snacks (savoury and sweet) for you to try, from interestingly diverse culinary cultures. Whether you are looking forward to a tasty bite on a lazy Sunday afternoon that would complement an ice cold glass of champagne or cava, or for something you can eat on-the-go whilst rushing to the office, we have your snack requirements covered!

It´s time for another afternoon snack. In this post, I have prepared some Garlic Prawn, Chorizo and Tomato Skewers. A different take on “surf and turf”, these skewers are truly mouth-watering and extremely simple to prepare. They can then be fried on the plancha, barbecue (read more…)
Trying to think of another use for the gourmet Italian sausages made a couple of posts ago, and in need of a substantial snack, my wife suggested making a quiche. Being a great lover of caramelised onions, I decided on a sausage and caramelised red (read more…)
