Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


We were recently in a fishermen village and had the luck to see the fishermen coming back in the afternoon with their catch.  It was great for the kids to learn how to recognise fresh fish by looking at the bright red gills and the transparent eye...something they cannot do in supermarkets because all fish is filleted nowadays.

This led to a discussion about how if you are lucky enough to get a really fresh wild fish (almost impossible nowadays) you should try to do as little as possible to it.

Same goes for any other really good quality product. No sauces, no masking the flavour - just respect the product.

So we are including a new label called 'less is more'.

Our first 'less is more' product is homegrown tomatoes ripened in the full Spanish sun. Just add olive oil, salt and vinegar and enjoy.
