Vanilla Poached Pears with Chocolate Sauce - Tesco Real Food Challenge

Just in case you haven't heard - Tesco are running a competition to find the best Real Food Cook out there in a competition called the Tesco Real Food Challenge.

There are eight mood categories in the competition, each of which is backed by a Celebrity and a Food Blogger.  

Do you have a recipe that could be a winner?   
If you do, then pop over to Tesco Real Food and enter it now.  There are some fantastic prizes to be won and you could even appear on TV in a show if your recipe gets though.
I'm teamed up with TV celebrity Tim Lovejoy in the category 'Date Night Dinners'.

Tim's recipe for a date night dinner is Vanilla Poached Pears with Chocolate Sauce - and so of course, I had to make it myself - just to make sure it tasted good of course!
Tim's recipe can be found over at the Tesco Real Food Challenge website. 
As they say you've got to be in it to win it, so, what food best matches your mood?

My 'Date Night Dinner' recipe for Prawn and Chorizo with Linguine and Chilli can also be found there, although of course, I'm not entered into the competition, it's just my suggestion for a Date Night Dinner.

Griddled Tuna Steaks with a Tomato Caper and Olive Dressing

A while back I went to a Masterclass with Marco Pierre White and Knorr and Marco cooked a lovely tuna dish.  The very next day I made it myself and have been meaning to post it ever since.  
So very easy to do and not only tastes good but looks good too.

To be honest you want smaller tomatoes that I could get at the time - just because they'd look better.

Linguine with Prawns Chorizo Sun-dried Tomatoes and Chilli

Yesterday I fancied eating prawns. Why? I've no idea, but you know how you just fancy something sometimes.  Nothing else would do, so prawns it was and time to invent something!


The flavour combo was amazing.  If I do say so myself I did a right good job of this dish and can't wait to make it again.
