Beetroot and halloumi rosti

I’ve taken the delicious salad that Rach from our little community shared on here last summer as the flavour inspiration for these. I bloomin’ love beetroot and dill, alone or together, they put me in veggie heaven. These little vegetable… Continue Reading →

Dinky crab & chili pasties

Crab was a particular speciality where we were living in the USA. Hauled out of the Chesapeake and boiled up with Old Bay seasoning or turned into delicious crab cakes. It’s a delicacy back home in Cornwall too, freshly picked… Continue Reading →

I’ve definitely fallen in love with this hot-water pie crust recipe. It’s lovely to work with and the results are so crisp and delicious. I also can’t get enough of root vegetables at the moment so this may be my… Continue Reading →

Apple, blackberry and rosemary galettes

Before the blackberry season draws to a close I think there’s still enough forageable fruit left to make these beauties. There are still more than a few apples left on the tree in my garden too so I’m always looking… Continue Reading →
