Butternut Squash and Crispy Sage Risotto

It’s the season for warm comforting dishes to get us through these dark cosy months. Butternut squash and pumpkins are a popular choice at this time of year. And this dish can be used with either, because if you’re anything like me you have some pumpkins leftover from Halloween last week. Of course I plan…

Diwali Biscuits

Happy Diwali to all that are celebrating this year πŸ™‚ Making biscuits for Diwali is one of our family traditions. Whilst it may not be something you associate with Diwali, it’s something we always made alongside all the spicy snacks and sweet treats. My Mum and I would make biscuits every year and hand them…

Spaghetti Pomodoro

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of pasta? A bowl of pasta coated in a fragrant tomato sauce topped with parmesan cheese, basil and extra virgin olive oil. I’m not sure there is, especially on a rainy day. A trip down memory lane… Spaghetti Pomodoro has been one of my favourite dishes ever…

Tebasaki Chicken Wings

I haven’t disappeared! But I’ve done it again haven’t I? I’ve been a little quiet on here recently but I have a good excuse this time, actually a great excuse! I managed to land the biggest job of my career. Read on to find out more. As you know by now, I live and breathe…

Strawberries and Cream

Who is enjoying Wimbledon this year? I absolutely love watching Wimbledon. I have followed it for years as my Dad got me interested in it and I became more and more hooked. We used to sit for long afternoons eating popcorn and watching nervously as the contestants battled it out. I love how professional the…

Greek Lamb Burger with Chilli Halloumi

Hello everyone πŸ™‚ I hope you’re all well! I’ve been a little MIA recently. Truth is I’ve been super busy at work (which I’m very grateful for) and decided to take a little break. My family and I managed to go on our first holiday to Crete a couple of weeks ago. With all the…

Restaurant Shoot

I love shooting restaurants and cafes. There’s something about the hustle and bustle of a restaurant that makes my job so much fun. Restaurants are very similar to a swan; calm and relaxing to the eye but what you don’t see is all the hard work underneath the water. As customers, we don’t always see…

Mussels and Fries

Mussels are in season right now and up until a few years ago I had never tried them. I was never great at trying different shellfish apart from prawns and lobster (especially after a bad experience with an oyster!) However my husband convinced me to try them one day on holiday in Canada and I…

Chinese Dumplings

It’s Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) today so I thought why not make some Chinese dumplings to go with it? After all there’s nothing more delicious than a dumpling is there? A hot, steamy little parcel filled with delicious and fragrant goodness. I could eat them all day long. Whether fried, steamed or…

Coconut Tadka Dal (Vegan)

I am the first to admit that I can’t seem to sustain a Vegan diet for good, let alone a month! But Veganuary is a great opportunity to try and cut back on meat and dairy and the recent trend over the years has really made us think about what we eat. For me and…
