There are very few things in the world that soothes the soul. Like sitting by a crackling fire whilst the wind sweeps eerily outside or a steaming bowl of soup that gently warms you from the inside out.
Ever since we’ve moved into our new home, I’ve really wanted to make some more freezer-ready meals for those nights that there is simply not enough time to cook something from scratch.
I’ve never been able to make good mashed potatoes. Until now…
This was a huge experiment! As I did our weekly shopping, I came across the pork ribs and they were on offer! So I whizzed this up one evening…
On Saturday evenings after the rugby my dad will put a whole rack of lamb ribs into the oven and we would have that with pap. Nowadays I like to keep things a little more healthy and cook French-trimmed lamb ribs with a bit of potatoes and an awesome pistachio pesto.
I love receiving edible gifts, especially those that are unusual. My friend B gave me a pack of Einkorn Flour a couple of months ago. I’ve been totally intrigued by it and couldn’t wait to try it out.
I am totally in love with Italy and all things Italian, especially the food culture and Mediterranean flavours.
Ever since I can remember my mum would always ensure that, when in season, we have beetroot salad on the table.
When I grew up, the family would gather on a Sunday for lunch. Everyone will be responsible for bringing one salad and one meat dish so it almost always resulted in someone bringing some form of jelly salad. My most favourite one is the Avocado Jelly Salad.
I can still remember the first time I had Moroccan food. I was in South Kensington with my cousin. I cannot remember what I had that night, but I do remember coming home and thinking: ‘wow! that was bloody fantastic!’
