Sweet or savoury, any kind of frozen treat is eligible – ice cream, gelato, granita, semi-freddo, shaved ice, slushie, sorbet, spoom… We’ve just done ice lollies but if you blog lollies in August, they are welcome too. Or you could get creative and share [Read More…]

Ice Lollies | July BSFIC Roundup

Ice Lollies | July BSFIC Roundup

As I write this, it’s pouring with rain outside and has been since I woke up some hours ago. Heavy drops are bouncing hard on the flat roof outside the window, making quickly-dissipating concentric circles one after the other after the other in mesmerising, ever-changing patterns. Grey skies and endless water have washed away the [Read More…]

How to Make Pour-Over Coffee in a Chemex Coffeemaker

How to Make Pour-Over Coffee in a Chemex Coffeemaker

The Chemex Coffeemaker is an iconic design; a beautiful narrow-waisted glass jug with polished wooden collar and simple leather tie. The sleek coffee apparatus is so timeless you could be forgiven for assuming the Chemex is a recent creation but it was invented in 1941 by German inventor Peter Schlumbohm. Schlumbohm’s Most Famous Invention Conscripted [Read More…]

Carob Molasses & Tahini Chocolate Brownies

Carob Molasses & Tahini Chocolate Brownies

I developed this recipe when writing a piece about Carob Molasses recently for Good Things magazine. (You can read it by following the link). The inspiration for the combination is entirely thanks to the wonderful Beiruti blogger, Joumana Accad, author of  tasteofbeirut.com. The malty caramel flavour of carob molasses and the delicious sesame of the [Read More…]

A Personal Ramble About Trees And Broccoli

A Personal Ramble About Trees And Broccoli

I’m taking you on a slight departure from my usual content today, to share a personal ramble about trees and broccoli. It was prompted by this link that I came across on Twitter, of a story about a project in Melbourne in which individual trees were given email addresses. The intention was to give locals [Read More…]

Every once in a while, I encounter a food or drink product that is so damn good it makes me giggle with delight. Bonieri is one such brand, which I first encountered at The Chocolate Show last October. Launched in 2013, Bonieri was founded by Amber Rust to bring chocolates and other sweet specialities originating [Read More…]

Eton Mess Ice Lollies | Strawberries, Cream & Meringue On A Stick

Eton Mess Ice Lollies | Strawberries, Cream & Meringue On A Stick

Summer means strawberries! It calls to mind strawberry picking at a local farm, strawberries and cream (and Wimbledon), home made strawberry liqueur, hot bubbling pans of strawberry jam and the special pleasure of eating home grown strawberries from the back garden. It’s also the best time of year to make one of our favourite desserts, [Read More…]

Sous Vide Salmon With Lime Butter

Sous Vide Salmon With Lime Butter

I love raw salmon – I don’t think there’s enough salmon sashimi in this world to sate me. And I love cured and smoked salmon – both the hot and cold smoked varieties… utterly gorgeous. But although I’ve had lovely cooked salmon plenty of times, I’ve also been served some hideously overcooked salmon; so much [Read More…]

Sorbets & Granitas | Early Summer BSFIC Roundup

Sorbets & Granitas | Early Summer BSFIC Roundup

For the latest Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream I set a theme of sorbets and granitas. Corin at Pro-Ware Kitchen created this rather grown up Tangerine and Prosecco Sorbet, the perfect palate cleanser. I love the beautiful orange colour and am seriously coveting the pretty champagne coupe glass. One advantage of sorbet over ice cream [Read More…]

Temperatures are soaring and that can only mean one thing: ice lollies – or ice pops, popsicles and freeze pops, as some of you call them! Whether you go for the simplest lolly made with cordial or fruit juice, layer stripes of different colours and flavours or make a cream or custard base – as [Read More…]
