Food & Drink – Burgers

Burgers There is nothing that beats a good home-made burger and these are superb. This is a really simple recipe that guarantees truly scrumptious Burgers! It is very easy to follow and as always, a huge hit with the family! If you don’t have horseradish, use mustard. If you don’t like mustard, keep it simple and leave it out! Add sundried tomatoes to the meat mix and pickles before you serve. It really doesn’t matter, just enjoy them! This is a uber quick and ultra-delicious recipe. Fabulous for a BBQ – at a safe social distance of course. Watch me make them over on my Instagram page.  #cupboardcookeryclasses Cooking time 30-40 Minutes Ingredients 750g minced beef 1 onion (or shallots) – chopped A handful of chopped Parsley 2 clove garlic – crushed 2 large tsp horseradish sauce (can use mustard instead) 1*2 tbsp Worcester sauce 1 egg Up to 2 tbsp breadcrumbs Extra onions to caramelise for the buns 6 burger buns Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil Method: Heat Olive Oil in frying pan Add …

Cooking Online In Lockdown

Nena Foster wrote a lovely article for the May issue of SE23 which we are happy to share. As a freelance nutritional chef, my work revolves around working with people; whether it is a cookery class or workshop, working with clients on a 1-2-1 basis or cooking on a set for a cookbook or magazine. My job also revolves around consistent access to food, so it was no surprise, but still came as a shock, that when we ended up in lockdown all my work completely dried up or needed to be delivered without making contact with others. After an initial panic, I decided to take my experience as a cookery teacher, former university lecturer delivering remote teaching sessions and use my limited (but growing) tech skills to move the parts of my business that I could online. The first week of lockdown was spent trying to make sure my family had what we needed and was spent getting up to speed with transitioning to online class delivery. At times it felt completely impossible; juggling …

Help the Rosendale feed the local community

The Three Cheers Pub Co have joined forces with Open Kitchens, the amazing non-profit organisation who help feed those elderly and vulnerable as well as our brave NHS staff.   They will be re-opening the kitchen at The Rosendale in West Dulwich with the aim of providing a minimum of 1,200 nutritious meals to those in most need in our local community. The kitchen will be staffed by members of their own team who have volunteered their time free-of-charge to support this project. Their initial fundraising target was £2,220 which they reached with half an hour!  They are now over £4,000.  This means they will be able to provide over 2,180 free nutritious meals to the vulnerable and elderly now, which is really exciting. Just £1.85 will provide a healthy fresh meal for those most affected by this crisis, so even the smallest of donations will make a difference to someone who is struggling right now. Whatever you can give will make a direct impact. The more money they are able to raise, the more meals will be provided. …

Lockdown Update

Many local businesses have had to adapt to life under the Covid-19 lockdown.  So many businesses got in touch with us at SE Mags to tell us how they have adapted their business to cope. Jerk Off BBQ At Jerk Off BBQ we love to host events and parties. We’ve been planning a launch for our new site but due to the Government lockdown we’ve been unable to celebrate when we’d wanted to, it a real shame not to see our supportive customers and community. However, we believe in positivity and great food, so as cooks we are always ready and willing to adapt and have done this by going fully online. We’re delivering locally to some lovely regulars from our pop ups and markets, as well as gaining a great new local following! Whilst we are in a pandemic the only thing we can do is stay safe and take all the recommended government guidelines seriously, which is why we operate a contact-free curb-side delivery system with all payments made online. Other than that, why not be …

Help keep Aneto Cafe open

Aneto Cafe need your help.  In 2013 Chef Damiano Vecchio opened Aneto where Locale once was. Inspired by great fresh ingredients, Aneto, a small neighborhood café began creating great breakfasts for regular guests. Due to their success, neighbours began to ask for homemade soups and salads, and even made-to-order sandwiches. After successfully trading for five years Aneto moved into bigger premises next door to showcase more dishes and increase trading hours until 8pm in the evening. Since Covid 19 crisis started, and the café was closed, Aneto swiftly changed  into a deli/shop complete with all the proper self distancing rules and guidelines . Selling fresh homemade pasta, in-store made breads, wines, dry and fresh goods and the occasional toilet roll!
