Have some culinary fun with pumpkins

October 28 2017

Beautiful colours, crispy leaves and the clocks changing – it can only mean one thing: autumn is finally here.

A cosy and comforting classic casserole for autumn

October 14 2017

With nights drawing in and temperatures beginning to fall, there is nothing more comforting than a good old-fashioned family stew with dumplings. Good meat and good vegetables simmering gently and slowly together, and in this slowness releasing precious juices that mingle to provide intense yet mellow flavours and the most tender of textures, says Garry Watson, chef proprietor of Gordon's Restaurant in Inverkeilor.

There’s no beating beetroot when it comes to taste and nutrition

September 16 2017

When I was a child beetroot was more of a punishment than the wonderful earthy reward that it is today. All kids in the 80s knew that beetroot was something that grew in jars far, far away. If you were posh your mum would buy the crinkle slices and it served no purpose other than to destroy your taste buds and colour everything it touched - including the rest of your food. Hands up if you remember purple chips!

Don’t just save fruit for dessert

September 9 2017

From tart blackberries to sweet strawberries and juicy peaches fruit obviously lends itself to desserts: fruit pies, crumbles, compote cake, fruit in ice cream ... the list goes on, says Garry Watson, chef proprietor of Gordon's Restaurant in Inverkeilor.
