A Girl Who Likes to Brunch

Brunch, breakfast/lunch or just another way of saying a long, relaxed and perhaps even boozy meal! But not a lunch, essentially it’s a mix between both. Freshly squeezed juice, Mimosa or a classy glass of prosecco to wash delicious food down…. What is your ideal brunch- sweet or savoury or both? I always want it […]

Ingredient of the Month

This month I’m loving tomatoes, juicy, colourful and full of flavour. Tomatoes are a basic yet understated ingredient. So many different types: salad, heirloom, vine, plum, baby, green…. everyone’s talking and writing about them but I’m actually buying them, tasting them and cooking with them this month.

Ingredient of the month

It’s all about the aubergine this month! I love the deep rich colour and it can be cooked and presented in so many ways. Definitely not as boring as I used to think. As children we all at some point had these thoughts:

The Aubergine – slimey, wet, dull and bland/tasteless…..
