My Top Five Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall Favorites!


Oh Hugh, my time with you was short, but we were able to have some great kitchen adventures and make some memorable dishes together. These five are my top favorites and are all dishes that I will be making over and over again for years to come!

I originally decided on this recipe solely because someone had given me a whole box full of garden-fresh tomatoes. I was expecting for it to be good, but instead the final product was downright mind-blowing! This was easily the best tomato sauce I've ever tasted and will be my perfect recipe for tomato sauce going forward. I am already waiting for next year so I can make batch upon batch and learn how to can it!




Again, I made this recipe based on the need to use up some puff pastry, and some beautiful rainbow Swiss chard, and did not expect to fall head over heels for this tart, but fall I did! I should have known better. I mean who doesn't want to wake up to flaky puff pastry with eggs, greens, and cheese. Two slices, please!





Welsh Rarebit is essentially cheese sauce over toast and let's face it...who wouldn't like that? Well, I can tell you that I had attempted it several times in my kitchen and wasn't a fan until now.  Previous versions resulted in a grainy cheese sauce that was just unpleasant. Hugh's version, on the other hand, was luscious and creamy and somewhat addicting. Expect to eat more than one slice!



People can hate on kale all they want, but I love it. In fact, I crave it. Everyone else can eat macaroni and cheese and plain old spaghetti, but I'll be eating this Cavatappi with Kale Ragu.  Holy cow...this is one of the best pasta dishes around. Make this if you love greens like me, and I promise you won't be disappointed!








And, finally, Hugh's Herby, Peanutty, Noodly Salad because who doesn't love a good noodle salad? Especially one that is so full of good-for-you green stuff and crunchy delicious peanuts? Perfect for any lunchbox!




Stay tuned! I Heart Cooking Clubs will be cooking with the one and only Ina Garten for the next six months! I can hardly wait to get started!

  3. I'll be delighted and enjoy having any one of these dishes in front of me. I made the noodly salad too. I think a few of us did. What a wonderful selection of delectable dishes!

    But why aren't you using some tool to make recipe cards for your recipes?
    It would make your recipes look more professional.

  6. I loved the salad--it probably would have been #6 for me! The rest of what you made looks delicious too. I should try the kale ragu and the tomato sauce for sure. Lots to add to my Potluck recipes to try~ ;-)
