thatsw a good combination.
cheddar and pickled onions
beer and salt and vinegar crisps.
Oldies but goodies, no question.

On the bean theme, cannellini beans with chorizo and mroe paprika and mushrooms in a tomato-garlic-onion sauce (might as well add juniper berries too) is a winner.
Goat's cheese and honey - winner. As with feta and honey.
got this one from the ottolenghi cookbook:
grilled aubergines + basil leaves + pomegranate seeds + greek yogurt that you've added saffron & garlic to.
it's so, so nice. turns out saffron and pomegranate are perfect for each other. for this alone, ottolenghi is a genius.
oh, and on that 'what to have with black pudding?' tip...fresh broad beans + a bit of parsley work great.
a great cold pasta salad for the cooler months (fusilli is superb because the smaller ingredients get in among its spirals) is with sliced button mushrooms, pesto, and add seeds you like, toss that in as well.
grate a cheese like a parmesan and maybe a little drizzle action.
I flippin adore broad beans. such a fresh green taste.
onion/spring onion and garlic fried with some cut-up tomatoes and fresh red chilli. scramble some eggs in, pour over olive oil and have with pittas. amazing.
one ingredient i'm really keen on at the moment is sherry vinegar. makes things like soups and stews taste kind of deeper, and more comforting.
Does anyone have any good ideas of what to do with miso concentrate, other than just making miso soup with it? Which is great, of course, but I feel I'm not exploiting it to its full potential.
It's amazing! Even at those rubbish chain tapas places, the sherry vinegar is always sublime. Must get me some of that while I remember.
