Radishes with spring onions and chillies

Radishes with spring onions and chillies

I don't know about you but in my house Barbecue season started in February. Yes, you heard it February, that beautiful, super unusual half term week with its amazing sunshine. Barbecue is a rather big thing in our house. And, I always like to have little side dishes to complement the whole thing. So here's one that's so simple to make and super tasty: radishes with spring onions and chillies. I demonstrated this recipe during Burwash Spring Feast last week and people loved it. In Reunion Island where I come from, side dishes like this are a must. Not with radishes but other vegetables. My mum invented this one when we were living in the South of France. We had an allotment and so many radishes, so she kind of had to find a way of using them. It's been a staple of mine since.

Radishes with spring onions and chillies


One bunch of radishes

Rock  salt (you can use normal salt, but rock salt is best)

2 spring onions finely chopped

Depending on your chilli tolerance, as many as you want

One TBSP of vegetable oil (don’t use olive oil for this, as it will over power the radishes taste)

Half a lime


Slice the radishes. In a bowl, mix them with the chopped onions and chillies. Add the oil and the juice of the lime, season with rock salt and mix. And that’s it! It is as simple as that.

This dish is also super tasty in pitta bread with a bit of fish or any strong cheese. I personally serve it as a side dish with a traditional “cari” from Reunion Island. You can do the same with any curry.

P.S: I regularly run a supper club about Reunion Island food, check it out here

Bon appétit!⠀

Cookery demonstrations at Burwash Manor

Cookery demonstrations at Burwash Manor

As part of Eat Cambridge food and drink festival,  Burwash Manor and the Larder are organising their annual “Spring Feast”. This fringe event is taking place this Sunday 19th May, from 10 am until 4 pm.


As part of the event, I will be running a number of cooking demonstrations, celebrating the wonderful spring produce of Burwash.

I love this time of year when vegetables and fruits start to make their appearance. I have been busy in my own garden, and I’m already harvesting the goodness of spring. So, this Sunday, I intend to showcase a few ingredients, that for me mean spring. So, there will be asparagus, radishes, new potatoes, spring onions, strawberries…I am going to show you some very simple recipes that you can do at home. And you know me, I will surprise you with some recipes you may not have thought of or even tried.

Entry to the event is free, so come along, there will also be plenty to sample.

Burwash has also invited a certain number of traders, amongst them:

  • Chihuahuas mexican street food
  • Cambridge cider and Cambridge Craft beer pop-up bars
  • Coffee in the coolest land Rover ever The Rural Coffee project
  • Dove Cote Bakery Sunday Bun day stall

I hope to see some of you this Sunday

Bon appétit!⠀
