#HeinzSeriouslyGood Mayo Mash with Steak and Ale

Anyone who’s ever had the *ahem* pleasure of accompanying me to a fast food shop at the end of a night on the tiles will be able to tell you how much I LOVE my chips and cheese smothered with mayonnaise. To be honest, I […]

Caramelised White Chocolate Panna Cotta

Caramelised White Chocolate Panna Cotta

A while ago now, I showed you how to make caramelised white chocolate in a slow cooker and then how to use it to glaze a beautiful bundt cake. I always intended to show you other ways of using this amazing ingredient, but then other […]

Häagen-Dazs at Wimbledon

Sometimes, when I’m in the middle of developing a recipe, refining the recipe for the 3rd time, photographing it, eating it and then writing about it I do stop and wonder ‘Why on earth do I put myself through this?!’ Yesterday, however, was the complete […]

Charred Spring Onion and Butterbean Dip

Charred Spring Onion and Butterbean Dip

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you… The HUMMUS KILLER! OK, so that’s a little bit of an exaggeration but I am definitely completely in love with this dip I’ve created. So much so, I’ve banished the half eaten tub of hummus lurking in my […]

Gin Mondays: Caorunn Gin and Rosy Cheeks Cocktail

Last Thursday and Friday, the garden of The Imperial in Chelsea was transformed into an edible ‘Gin Garden’ filled with plants, fruits and botanicals ready to be picked and used to flavour and garnish a delicious gin cocktail.  The garden was created by Caorunn (ka-roon!) […]

Vegetarian BBQ Recipe Roundup

Vegetarian BBQ Recipe Roundup

When a reader recently asked me for some veggie recipes for the BBQ, I must admit I was a little stumped. My BBQs tend to be pretty meat-heavy affairs… However, I’m trying to eat more vegetarian food in general these days so I decided to […]
