super healthy green smoothie

super healthy green smoothie

The base recipe for this super healthy green smoothie comes from a wonderful organic farm in Israel called Farma Cultura, located on the outskirts of Tel Aviv in the village of Bnei Zion. This little farm is exactly the kind of place you want to have right in your own neighbourhood. They grow an array of incredible organic produce and have a little shop on the property where they sell it along with various prepared dishes which are all freshly made by themselves. We popped in for a short visit while I was on my spectacular food tour to Israel in January and took a tour of the garden. Owner Gil Shacham-Amit and her husband made their green smoothie for us and it was delicious. Continue Reading →

Perhaps it’s because I’m so hard-wired in terms of how I shoot my stills – which is 99% in portrait, I just set up all my equipment and got busy.

The whole thing happened quite spontaneously and I had no plans to make a video. I needed to retest this granola recipe that appears in my book, so I thought, why not just shoot myself doing it in the process? Continue Reading →


roasted cauliflower with curry spices and dukkah


Roasting cauliflower is by far my favorite way of eating this wondrous vegetable that can masquerade as anything from a sauce to a carbohydrate. The texture is at its edible best and the flavour is so much stronger. I like to cut them into ‘steaks’ as they look quite striking¬†on a plate, but cauliflower florets can also be roasted in the same way. Continue Reading →
