easy lemonade scones with cheese & herbs

Easy lemonade (Sprite) scones with cheese & herbs

This is one of those gimmicky recipes that really is quite delicious. I’ve tweaked it over the years to get the right amount of cheese and herbs in the mix but still deliver a pillowy soft and fluffy scone. With only five ingredients (apart from the salt), these lemonade scones with cheese and herbs could not be easier to make.  Continue Reading →


pasta con ceci

Pasta con Ceci

A friend on Twitter posted about this famous Pasta con Ceci recipe by Victoria Granof on Food52 Genius recipes and it immediately piqued my interest. How could such a simple pasta dish consisting of so few ingredients be so delicious? I often find carb on carb doesn’t work that well together in a dish. I mean they certainly can, and I’ve loved pasta with potatoes, green beans and pesto, and thinly sliced potatoes on a pizza with rosemary and cream, so I know it can go down. I’m also not the biggest fan of chickpeas unless in this delicious dish with chorizo, or into Yotam Ottolenghi’s creamy hummus. Continue Reading →

tortellini & italian sausage meatball bake with spinach

I wanted to combine Italian sausages, turn them into bite-sized meatballs and bake them in a rich tomato sauce with the tortellini because this kind of pasta dish is my absolute heaven. It’s a whole lot quicker and easier than making lasagne and delivers a similar result. This is winter comfort food at its best. Continue Reading →

fennel, radish & mint salad with lemon & ricotta

fennel, radish & mint salad with lemon & ricotta

A couple of years ago I became obsessed with this fennel, radish and lemon salad and seriously I make it all the time in summer. It’s so fresh and crunchy, and I love to eat it with fish or chicken and pile it onto my sandwiches for lunch. I was late getting to the stage of really liking fennel. It was always to aniseedy for me, but when I got over that, I embraced this crunchy and liquorice flavour packed vegetable with gusto. When shaved into very thin slices with radish, the flavour somehow mellows with the lemon and olive oil. I didn’t think this salad could get any better until I spotted this recipe for fennel, radish and mint with ricotta in Polpo, one of my all-time favourite cookbooks. Continue Reading →
