Crispy tofu tacos – with avocado coleslaw

Before I lived in the States I only ever really thought of tacos as the hard, crunchy shells you buy from the supermarket and fill with chilli and cheese. I was utterly oblivious to the world of deliciousness which ‘proper’… Continue Reading →

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 →

Spicy prawns and parmesan polenta

Just because a meal is quick and easy doesn’t mean that it can’t be packed with flavour. Soft, creamy cheesy polenta and sweet plump prawns in a rich smoky tomato sauce. What could be better on a chilly evening? I… Continue Reading →

Cardamom espresso brownie bites

Nothing shows just how much you care about someone more than letting them indulge in these delectable little bites of rich chocolatey goodness, rather than just scoffing the lot yourself. I’d forgotten just how delicious the combination of sweet chocolate,… Continue Reading →
