Dark Chocolate Ginger Biscuits

Dark Chocolate Ginger Biscuits Recipe

Ginger is one of my very favourite flavours to use when baking. But it’s important to remember that it’s an ingredient that comes in many varieties. These Dark Chocolate Ginger Biscuits for instance have a subtle, sweet ginger flavour. On the flip side, my recipe for ginger nuts is far more powerful and full of spice. The difference is in the ginger used – stem ginger is mellow; root or ginger powder is more robust.

Apricot Chocolate Fudge Cake

Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe

A rich chocolate cake, but with the Sachertorte’s legendary layer of apricot jam, this recipe for Apricot Chocolate Fudge Cake is a perfect blend of simplicity and flavour.

Golden Ale Vegetarian Chilli

Vegetarian Chilli con Carne Recipe

Chilli is one of the best dishes with which to experiment – if an ingredient is dark, rich and flavourful, it can probably be put to good use in this classic American dish. Indeed, Stout Chilli was on our menu not so long ago and the intense, rich notes of the Bristol Beer Factory’s ‘Milk Stout’ resonated wonderfully with the meat. Vegetables, however, seem to work better with something lighter than stout, so it seemed only natural to develop a recipe for Golden Ale Vegetarian Chilli.
