In the meantime: Toasted Cous Cous with Roast Veg

Toasted Cous Cous with Roast Veg

To kick off my Italian-free month of eating, I wanted to share a dish that’s become a favourite of mine in recent months. I’ve promised this one before and not delivered, so I thought it was high time that I shared the love. Read more…

On trend: Feta Fantail Rolls

Feta Fantail Rolls

When I worked (and lived and breathed) in fashion, I was very concerned with trends. Not in a superficial, “I couldn’t possibly wear that skirt, it’s so last season” way, but in a more theoretical one. Where they came from, how they grew, where they were going. Want to know what  you’ll be wearing in a few years? Go stake out a university or college with a fashion program and spend some time student-watching.

It wasn’t a passionate hatred; I’ve always happily munched of lettuce and veg (no dressing, please) after dinner with the rest of my family. But as something to spend time making? As something to get excited about? As something to actually pay for in a restaurant? Please, I had better things to eat. Read more…

Table for two: Red Onion, Kale and Cheese Strata

Strata

Last month, I did something extremely (some might say uncharacteristically) clever: I bought a small glass Pyrex dish. Nothing fancy or all that pretty (it was only £2 at Sainsbury’s after all) but as it turns out, that little dish was an awesome buy. Read more…

Predictably Perfect: Roasted Squash with Whole Wheat Pasta

Roasted Squash with Whole Wheat Pasta

We all have our favourite flavours, right? The ones that keep tempting us, year after year, and become mainstays in our home cooking. Also the ones that as food bloggers we have to watch ourselves on, lest we become known as “the girl who writes that goat’s cheese blog“. Read more…
