We are Nik Devlin and Edwina fitzPatrick. Since 1998, we've been cooking together and this is our food archive. Yes, it is old school, but it has over 300 amazing  recipes from around the world. We are always adding new recipes so keep an eye on the ‘latest’ section.

If you love fish and plant based cookery, this is the place for you. Some recipes we’ve invented, some are inherited, others are adapted and evolved from existing publications. Many thanks are due to friends who have passed on recipes (you do get credited!).

We are also interested in growing as much food as we can in our small garden. A combination of slugs, pigeons, squirrels and wind made us realise that for many crops (eg. tomatoes, brassicas, herbs etc etc) this wasn't going to happen unless we built a greenhouse, so we built two. The garden now has many fruits growing (including tons of raspberries - many not actually planted by us) and a lot of bee-friendly flowers. 

We've had bee hives in our garden since 2010, and it's been quite a learning curve. The one thing we know for sure is that the more that you learn about being with bees, the less you know, and that they usually know best. We don't keep bees for the honey - it is a lovely bonus - but we keep them because they are vital pollinators and indicators of weather changes. 

Nik died unexpectedly  from Coronavirus in March 2020, but Edwina is keeping this website alive because she wants to keep sharing these recipes, and thinks that Nik would want to do so too. He talked about cooking as a form of making love.  Here's the  Instagram  link
