Summer squash pancakes

Summer squash pancakes

How does this look for a summer brunch!? Golden fluffy pancakes that will help you on your way to your five-a-day? Yes please! I’m a sucker for anything that involves dill so these are a winner for me. They make a pretty hearty breakfast but […]

Cheese & chive welsh cakes

Cheese & chive welsh cakes

These are a lovely savoury twist on a sweet tea-time classic. You don’t have to limit them to afternoon indulgence though – these have proved very popular for breakfast and brunch topped with fried or poached eggs. You can use any hard, medium-fat cheese you […]

Vegetarian Sausage Rolls

Vegetarian Sausage Rolls

Sausage rolls are such a classically British snack. I was always quite surprised that they weren’t more popular in the States given how much they love pork but I guess their sausages aren’t quite the same as a good old British banger. Back in the […]

Porcini, Chestnut & Mushroom Pate

Porcini, Chestnut & Mushroom Pate

My mum had a special birthday on New Years Eve. I’m not going to tell you how old she was but it was the kind of birthday that you make a fuss over. Having a a birthday on New Year’s Eve isn’t as great as […]

Squash, sage and ricotta galettes

Squash, sage and ricotta galettes

As a non-meat eater I would be chuffed to bits to be presented with these for my Christmas dinner, or for any dinner for that matter! The pastry is gorgeously crisp and flaky against the creamy filling and tender sweet squash. The flavours are spot […]

Pumpkin seed pesto

Pumpkin seed pesto

Have you carved a pumpkin for Halloween? Did you toss away the seeds? I hope not, those babies are delicious roasted and hulled. They’re also a delicious (and cheaper) alternative to pine nuts in pesto. Pesto isn’t just for pasta though. I actually ate this […]

Banging Green Beans

Banging Green Beans

I think there’s a tendency, when you’re cooking for people who don’t eat meat, to feel like you have to ‘replace’ that element of a meal. I don’t agree, obviously I don’t want to lose the protein from my diet but there are plenty of […]

Heirloom tomato and fennel tart

Heirloom tomato and fennel tart

When you get really good ingredients it’s worth using them in a recipe that really shows off their full potential. That’s how I feel about these beautiful heirloom tomatoes anyway. So often the fruits you find in supermarkets are insipid and disappointing but if you […]

Baked feta

Baked feta

I’ve got a bone to pick with you guys. Why did none of you tell me how delicious baked feta is? I mean regular feta is pretty good but baked feta is a whole other thing! It’s so soft, but not actually melted, with a […]

Beetroot & cannellini bean dip

Beetroot & cannellini bean dip

I love hummus as much as the next person but summer barbecues when you don’t eat meat can get a bit hummus heavy so it’s nice to have a bit of a change every now and then. This recipe is ludicrously good for you! It’s […]
