Spinach and paneer filo pie

I love most Indian food but I think that my absolute favourite dish is a paneer dosa. I love the crisp, delicate crepe and contrasting soft, fluffy spiced potato filling. I am not, however, any good at making them. The… Continue Reading →

Baked smoked salmon parcels

I’m not really a fan of smoked salmon. I’m not really a fan of anything smoked (except maybe chili) and I’ve made these a couple of times but I think that the salmon I used the first time I made… Continue Reading →

Elderflower Tom Collins

The other day I came across something new (to me) and exciting called a tiger lemon. If you’ve never seen one then it’s got green and yellow striped skin and it should have pale pink flesh. (The ones I bought… Continue Reading →

Coconut & cherry scones

Like all good Westcountry folk I certainly appreciate a good cream tea. A light, fluffy freshly baked scone, crisp on the outside and perhaps just a little warm on the inside is key. These cherry and coconut scones fit the… Continue Reading →

Apricot, cardamom and honey ice cream (no-churn)

These are flavours which are just made to go together. They’re fragrant and exotic and generally a delicious combination. Cardamom is one of my favourite spices. I do love a no-churn ice cream recipe too, they’re always so quick and… Continue Reading →

Cheddar and leek soda bread

I know that for the last couple of years (whilst I was living in the USA) I’ve offered you recipes for sweet treats to celebrate St Patrick’s day, but this year I thought that I might go down a more… Continue Reading →

Lime, thyme and elderflower meringue pie

I know what you’re thinking, ‘lemon meringue pie is a classic, you don’t need to mess around with it.’ But I say a change is as good as a rest so why not try something a little bit different? This… Continue Reading →
