vietnamese summer vegetable rollls

vietnamese summer vegetable rollls

I adore Vietnamese rice paper rolls and since visiting Vietnam a the end of last year I love them even more. They are pockets of vibrant freshness that are so healthy your halo starts shining the minute you pop one in your mouth. For this recipe I have kept them vegetarian – although I do love prawns in them too. The important thing is to add variety to give enough crunch and flavour. You can literally clear out your fridge to make them. I have gone in a vegetable salad direction here and included romaine (cos) lettuce leaves too.  Continue Reading →

char roasted spring onion tartines with viking salt

Its been a while since I got this excited about a new ingredient. I mean the name alone is enough to inspire. Maybe because my lineage is linked to Viking, or the fact that I’m in love with the TV series and Ragnar Lothbrok, or simply because I’m obsessed with salt, but this Viking salt is something quite extraordinary. You will want to use it in recipes where the essence wont lost against other strong flavours. It needs to shine. Its a great finishing salt and a perfect addition to sprinkle over fairly neutral flavours. I thought it would be perfect for these char roasted spring onion tartines. Continue Reading →
