Many thanks for stumbling upon my website when you were googling Lotte Verbeek the stunning actress, who plays a character called Gelillis Duncan in the series Outlander! You can see why we get mixed up....I hear she can cook quite well too!
But now you’re here its lovely that you’ve stayed and I would like to introduce you to a few things that I do..... Please feel free to hit the ‘About Lotte’ button and you’ll see that I also do a bit of cooking and have been for thirty years or so.
Not only that, I’m also lucky enough to have cooked quite a lot on British television, radio and through the Food Network channel; other parts of the globe for seventeen years – which I also adore doing.
There are various different tabs above....please do have a look at them. There are lots of photographs involving food and many relating to the interviews I do at the BBC Good Food Shows, Thame Food Festival and other food events.
Thame Food Festival is a big part of my life and I’m the Patron and one of the Directors. The festival in my local home town of Thame and all the food producers and chefs that take part are what make it one of the most successful, if not the biggest one day festival in the South East. I’m very proud of that fact.
I met him when we both went to New York with two other chefs to compete in ‘Chopped’ for Food Network US. We both made it to the final and he won......not entirely sure I’ve forgiven him ...and that’s probably why I made him take three buses all the way into the countryside instead of picking him up from home when he came to film with us. As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold!
But....it’s a fabulously good show and we would like to get a series with many different chefs commissioned, so please do watch it and if you are a super rich television producer with great insight and imagination, then do get in touch – you know you want to.......!
So, thanks again for visiting and if you need me and my talents at anytime please contact my marvellous and very friendly agent – Anne Kibel – she’ll book me in and charge a fairly reasonable price and by God I’m worth it!
This pudding has every right to be a little full of itself. Layer upon layer of brandy, rum, creamy custard, fruit, amaretti biscuits and Madeira cake is finally topped with a smug lemon syllabub and a cluster of roses. A pud with a well deserved ego. Serves 10 For the syllabub grated zest and juice of 1 lemon 150ml/5fl oz dry or medium white wine
I believe that all meringues should be pink. Bright candy pink, and sandwiched together with clotted cream and ripe English strawberries. There is something about a meringue, especially a pink one that turns normal women into rather scary sugar monsters. Gentlemen, I would like to open your eyes to this one area of girl life. If you were present at a pink meringue feast, we
I’ve never tried to mess with a cod fishfinger. I’ve heard they’re mean and can break your arm with one swipe. Or is that a swan? Whatever…! Salmon on the whole are a lot kinder and make delicious fingers, especially when dipped in this fresh, herby mayonnaise. I like to coat them in coarse breadcrumbs (see tip) as I think they are nicer with a
