This is my version of cock-a-leekie that uses chicken thighs. I like to add fresh thyme and parsley.

Black Sheep Ale reminds me of walking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks last year. They serve 'Black Sheep Pie' along the route and I thought… I can do that. Well maybe anyway. You can do it with any other ale too I suppose, and I used to do something similar with Guinness, but found that it’s got a slightly more bitter aftertaste to it than the Black Sheep.

This is a great base recipe, and meat eaters will never guess it's vegetarian!

These pots de creme are an elegant, easy to make dessert. Perfect for a dinner party, as you can make it ahead of time, and it's also very affordable. If you don't use cooking chocolate, use the darkest chocolate you can find, at least 70% cacao.
