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…

Greek Lamb Burger with Chilli Halloumi

Hello everyone 🙂 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…

Puris and Masala Eggs

This is possibly one of my favourite breakfast dishes. One however, that I don’t get to eat often as it was always something that either my Mum, grandma or aunt made. It’s a typical Sunday morning breakfast eaten with all the family. I always talk about how food can bring back nostalgic memories and puris…

Masala Lamb Steak and Okra Fries

Lamb steak is a treat for us. It’s something that feels a little special because we don’t eat it often and leaves us feeling lie we have indulged. Steak is something we normally associate with restaurants, but it is so simple to do at home too. And it’s a great date night meal! I’ve never…

Lemon Meringue Pie

It’s British Pie Week and I am here for it. Is there anything more comforting than a pie? There is something very special about pulling a hand made pie out of the oven, whether sweet or savoury, it’s simply joyous. I love a savoury pie, from the classic chicken and mushroom or my recent vegetarian…

Cherry, Hazelnut and Nutella Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day! I’ve been writing pancake day posts on my blog for a few years now and I seem to always mention that I love English pancakes. And it’s still true, I do! What’s not to love? Thin pancakes that are soft in the middle and a little crispy on the edges, ready for…

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…

Aloo and Spinach Paratha

There’s something quite special about comfort food and how it can take you back to a certain time in your life. It can spark the fondest of memories and transport you back to a happy place. To me, food can awaken the senses; the smell, the taste and the sight of a dish can ignite…

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…
