1. COCONUT & PEANUT BUTTER FROM MERIDIAN I could not resist grabbing one of these from the supermarket shelf. The best of both worlds, coconut and peanut brought together in a delicious smooth spread. Great on toast, porridge or in smoothie. The taste is not as strong as peanut butter with the added mellowness of […]
My first tofu pressing experience involved a plate, a chopping board and a kettle filled with water. A precarious game of jenga which of course ended up in disaster when it all came crashing down. For many years, tofu was a mysterious ingredient I was not sure what to do with. I found it bland, squishy […]

Hands up if your head still feels in your twenties while your body starts telling you a different story. That’s me, anyway! From running, swimming or going to the gym, I have always enjoyed exercising. After having kids, I started yoga and now in my forties the triathlon bug is hitting me. Since January though, my aches and […]
Growing up I devoured my way through many slices of Comté cheese, never grasping its full beautiful complexity. Made in Franche-Comté, a picturesque area of north-east France stretching between Jura, Bourgogne, Ain and Alsace, this long lasting, hard aged cheese can be subtle or intense depending on its age and when it was produced. Did you know […]
