  • Hummingbird cupcakes

    Hummingbird cupcakes

    When I moved to the south of France, I expected skies in the exact shade of blue as a Swedish hunk’s eyes, sun-drenched river banks, warm terracotta soaking up the sun, and me, lounging in my garden with a chilled cocktail clasped leisurely in hand. Now, a year later, I can only testify to the […]

  • Nectarine cheesecake hand pies

    Nectarine cheesecake hand pies

    To do lists are all well and good, but they’re only satisfying if you can actually cross something off them. For once, I am proud to say that two tasks on my to do list can have a line drawn firmly through them, and this is particularly satisfying as these two tasks were hanging over […]

  • Strawberry-miso French toast muffins

    Strawberry-miso French toast muffins

    We have all heard of French toast. But French toast muffins? With strawberry and miso? What is this madness? Last weekend, I hosted a brunch. This wasn’t my first foray into breakfast parties as I’d cooked a spread of pancakes for my 26th birthday, and we all got drunk on Bloody Marys. As usual I […]

  • Crab soufflés

    Crab soufflés

    To conclude February, my food bucket list of 2022 begins, commencing with these light, creamy crab soufflés, an easy yet outrageously decadent lunch for you to eat today! In case you missed it, I’ve chosen 10 delicious recipes to make this year – a hopefully easy-to-achieve number, especially as I’ve waited until 27th February to […]

  • Cherry Clafoutis

    Cherry Clafoutis

    And so, finally, six months later, I’m back in France! It’s almost unbelievable to think the last time I saw my boyfriend was on a dark, wet morning in December as he dropped me off at the airport, our last kiss between two face masks. At long last – Christmas, a birthday, and, oh yeah, […]

  • Fig, rosemary and fennel soda bread

    Fig, rosemary and fennel soda bread

    Guys. I have news. And it involves a rather divine soda bread recipe. Firstly, you might be thinking, ‘Oh what a lovely photograph!’ (not that I am putting words in your head but it’s what my mum and sister both thought so I’m just assuming). If you are thinking that, this is where I dive […]

  • Orange and ginger sticky toffee pudding

    Orange and ginger sticky toffee pudding

    Who knew a sticky toffee pudding could save the day? About week ago, I excitedly planned a list of recipes to write and test. I was probably lying in bed at the time and frustrated that it was night, hence the cooking could not commence immediately. Over the following days, I eagerly made rhubarb ketchup, […]

  • How to make Babka plus two different flavours

    How to make Babka plus two different flavours

    I first tried babka at Honey & Co. In their little restaurant on Warren Street, its white walls and plants whisking customers away from smoggy London to a momentary respite of sun-dappled tranquillity, there is a counter laden with tempting cakes and pastries. After a memorable meal, stuffed to the gills and discovering a new […]

  • Prune and fennel sausage rolls

    Prune and fennel sausage rolls

    Quite often, the best things in life are wrapped in pastry. We can all agree a pain au chocolat is a thing of beauty, especially if the chocolate is slightly molten. Apple turnovers and eclairs were mine and my sister’s chosen bakery treats – as I bit into the sugar-speckled shell of a crisp apple […]

  • Blackberry and bay brownies

    Blackberry and bay brownies

    During these endless days of lockdown it’s good to find the little joys. In the last few days I’ve been carrying vases of tulips around the house so I can see them wherever I go, it snowed and as I write this the garden is still topped in what looks like a blanket of fondant […]
