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…

Dishoom’s Akuri – Spiced Scrambled Eggs

Who doesn’t love scrambled eggs? They are quick, healthy and easy to prepare. Plus they are so versatile. My go to recipe is simple scrambled eggs on toast with a splash of hot sauce. I was flicking through my beautiful recipe book from Dishoom and came across their spiced scrambled eggs recipe – a dish…

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…

Chicken Kofta Scotch Egg

It really is the most wonderful time of the year! I love this festive season. The Christmas decorations, the lights and the old movies. But the thing I enjoy the most is the food! There’s nothing better than mince pies, hot chocolates and clementines. I love baking this time of year, although its a little…

Homemade Chilli Jam with Grilled King Prawns

Chilli jam! What’s not to love? A sweet and spicy condiment that enhances so many dishes. I’ve tried it in restaurants before and it is absolutely delicious. I really wanted to try and make it myself so I decided to give it a go. It’s surprisingly easy! I’ve been so busy recently that it was…

Diwali Preparations

I love this time of year. When the days get darker and the crisp Autumn air hits your face. The trees look so beautiful with its leaves transitioning from green to orange and red. It also means that Diwali is coming up and that means a celebration of delicious food, lights and music. Diwali is…

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Happy Halloween everyone! Now although this is not exactly a spooky Halloween post, it’s inspired by the flavours that everyone is enjoying at the moment. Isn’t Autumn just beautiful? Look at these gorgeous leaves we found around our house. I just love the colours. What is Pumpkin Spice? I started to see pumpkin spice everywhere…

Moroccan Roast Chicken and Couscous

Well it’s been a little while since I’ve done a recipe on here, apologies! I blame tonsillitis and generally trying to balance work and home life. What a wonderful summer we just had. Yes the weather wasn’t great, but we had so much fun catching up with friends and family and attending lots of weddings….

Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love to bake but sometimes I think my waistline could do without it. There’s nothing wrong with a little cake, but if I can make it a little lighter I will. I’m not a huge fan of over complicated recipes that ask for strange ingredients to make it healthier. Also I’m a little bored…

Slow Cooked Lamb Ragu

I’m not sure about you, but I was getting ready for Autumn by getting my cardigans out and secretly thinking about Christmas. And then boom. Summer! Glorious sunshine sent me into a blind panic to find my sunglasses and shorts. It was absolutely beautiful and although brief, I am grateful for the few days of…
