Thug Kitchen Fattoush Salad

Romaine lettuce is having a bad time right now. Everyone’s picking on it cause it got E. Coli. Like it caught it on purpose, or something. Nobody wants E. Coli. Why does society always blame the injured party? It’s like saying a rape-victim asked for it. “Should you really have been wearing that dress?” As if it’s not bad…

KAPOW! : Thug Kitchen White Bean and Cabbage Soup

Arugula Potato Salad with Fennel

I’ve been away for a while. I didn’t go far though.

I’ve been doing more cooking recently, and less writing. I blame it on the Thugs and my…

Cucumber Salad with Peanuts and Cilantro

Okay let’s set the scene. Christmas has been and gone.

‘FUCK SCURVEY. Yell it loud. Frighten the neighbours.’ -Thug Kitchen. If I wasn’t in love with Thug Kitchen before, I certainly am now.
