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 →

Rhurbarb and ginger tart

This is a lovely seasonal twist on my recipe for apricot bourbon tart (you might have seen it in The Guardian). I love anything involving frangipane and I’m always striving to attain pastry perfection. My grandma made the best pastry… Continue Reading →

Raspberry Whisky Sour

I actually created this cocktail to serve before our Burns Night supper but look at how pretty it is! It’s perfect for Valentines day too. I wouldn’t recommend using a really, really, peaty whisky in this but you should still… Continue Reading →

Ginger, gin and rhubarb panna cotta

Vegan banana, coconut and poppyseed cake

I can’t get over how well this turned out. I’m always a little bit apprehensive when I make up a vegan cake recipe, it’s a little bit out of my comfort zone but I do enjoy the challenge. This (in… Continue Reading →

Date and tamarind ketchup

I bet you’ve still got a few remnants of festive food hanging around, I know I have, January’s healthy intentions may have to wait a few more days! At least I’ve got a way of using up those Christmas dates…. Continue Reading →

Blackberry and apple gin fizz

I don’t really go in for champagne or prosecco but on special occasions it’s still nice to celebrate with something bubbly. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the Breton and Normandy cider which comes in champagne-style… Continue Reading →
