A few weeks ago Comté Cheese got in touch to ask if I would be interested in creating some recipes for them. Little did they know, I actually come from Franche-Comté and Comté is one of my favourite cheeses. How could I refuse? Sharing a border with Switzerland, Franche-Comté is a very picturesque area of […]
Back at university, I spent a lot of time with a bunch of Spanish guys who took food very seriously. Dinners went on and on, to the disbelief of our American classmates who expedited their meals at the drive through. We took hours, had great laughs, never ending discussions and truly enjoyed ourselves. Later on, when […]
My mum is from a generation where home economics was taught at school.

Purple sprouting broccoli makes a perfect side dish as well as a tasty addition to pasta, risotto, […]
We celebrate the start of Chinese New Year with meat free versions of some traditional Chinese recipes. For the next 15 days celebrations will take place around the world to mark the year of the goat, sheep or ram. Apparently there is a bit of a confusion this year caused by the Mandarin Chinese character yang: 羊 […]
We often buy too much or simply forget what’s in the refrigerator and end wasting food, a lot of food. Overall up to 50% of the food produced ends up in the bin. Even though we are improving, UK households are still wasting around 21% of perfectly good food. By becoming savvier with using left overs, families could save on average £60 […]
Looking back at 2014, I wanted to say thank you for all your support. It has been a busy year where I have enjoyed not only developing new recipes but also learning more about food and its challenges. I am glad to see that the trend towards “less meat eating” looks like to carry on in […]
