Smoked Salmon fishcakes served with Hollandaise sauce

I think fishcakes make the perfect light lunch. I’m particularly fond of them for a special brunch and like to add a boiled egg. At Gastrono-me for a little sensory fun we used to serve our fishcakes under a glass cloche filled with hickory smoke, when the dome was lifted the customer had a delicious waft of woody smoke before digging in! read more

Korean Spring Onion Pancakes

I’ve been seeing these delicious crispy spring onion pancakes trending over the internet for some time now. I was determined to give them a go and improvise with some ideas for a cookery book I’m working on. Often called a ‘Korean pizza’ this crispy pancake I think they makes the ideal vessel for a Gastrono-me style sexy brunch dish! The heat of the horseradish cream is a delicious accompaniment to the smoked salmon, and if you’re feeling in a spicy mood a little gochujang hot sauce drizzled over is really good. Have a great pancake day everyone! read more
