Sour cherry and cinnamon jam

I’ve told you before about how much I love cherries. I’ve probably mentioned the tears that ensued when I swallowed a cherry stone as a child and my dad told me a cherry tree would grow out of my head…. Continue Reading →

Heirloom tomato and fennel tart

When you get really good ingredients it’s worth using them in a recipe that really shows off their full potential. That’s how I feel about these beautiful heirloom tomatoes anyway. So often the fruits you find in supermarkets are insipid… Continue Reading →

Moelleux aux chocolat

Sometimes you just need a slice of rich gooey chocolate cake. A moelleux isn’t some namby-pamby light, fluffy sponge adorned with frosting. It’s a serious chocolate hit. Dense and fudgy and a little bit gooey in the middle, almost to… Continue Reading →

I started off wanting to make a Banoffee cheesecake but I can be a bit funny about bananas. I’ll only eat them when they’re slightly under-ripe you see, when they’re still a touch green at the ends. The moment a… Continue Reading →

Beetroot & cannellini bean dip

I love hummus as much as the next person but summer barbecues when you don’t eat meat can get a bit hummus heavy so it’s nice to have a bit of a change every now and then. This recipe is… Continue Reading →

Petit praline tarts

How about these for a sweet treat? Crisp little pastry shells filled to the brim with homemade chocolate and caramelised hazelnut ganache. You know you wouldn’t be able to say ‘no’ to one of these (or two, or three). The… Continue Reading →
