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…]

In Gianduja Heaven With Bonieri | Giveaway

In Gianduja Heaven With Bonieri | Giveaway

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

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…]

BSFIC July | Ice Lollies

BSFIC July | Ice Lollies

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…]

Lemon Balm Sorbet

Lemon Balm Sorbet

The herb patch in our back garden has gone wild. Lemon balm is one of the winners of the battle for space and light, thrusting proud stems laden with aromatic leaves in all directions. We also have bold bushes of sage, rosemary, oregano and thyme. I think the pure and subtle flavour of herbs can [Read More…]

Diana Henry’s Chicken with Pumpkin, Cream & Gruyère

Diana Henry's Chicken with Pumpkin, Cream & Gruyère

I don’t often gravitate towards cookery books focusing on a single ingredient as they so often have a core of fabulous recipes padded out with a bunch of weak page fillers. But Diana Henry’s A Bird In The Hand is a wonderful exception, chock – or should that be chook? – full of appealing recipes [Read More…]

Islay In My Belly | Feis Ile 2015

Islay, aaah, Islay, it’s always such a pleasure to visit your beautiful landscapes again. Even if you made a liar out of me when I told our Islay newbie friends how we have always had gorgeous weather for Feis Ile (whisky and musical festival) week and would surely have it again. Even in the driving [Read More…]
