Newington Green Fruit & Vegetables

It seems that I’m spending less and less time in the capital. Over the past few years I have morphed from a fully fledged Londoner who would sit in east London pubs chatting about the merits and pitfalls of the gentrification of Hackney, and have turned into a wanna-be Bristolian who doesn’t know my Banksy’s […]

Easy Veg Pie

Thank god for ready-rolled shop bought puff pastry! When I’m exhausted after a long day in the office or a busy weekend, there are very few dishes that can give such pleasure from such little effort. Below is a recipe that I made recently and may not be to everyone’s taste, but be brave and […]

Courgette Rolls

Ingredients 1 onion Bunch of spring onions Sprouting broccoli (into chunks) 3 garlic cloves 1 bunch of curly parsley 4 small potatoes (chopped into 2cm chunks, […]

Don’t get me wrong, I love Paris and all it’s museums, architecture and wine bars. But unlike most, I don’t […]

Introducing the Rambo

I can’t take credit for this drink, and I’m not 100% sure I want to yet. This unusual concoction was devised by my wonderful social-hound sister. While jagger-bombs have moved from the apre ski slopes of Austria and have now saturated the clubbing and late night bars across the UK, my darling sister has come […]

Baked Blueberry Cheesecake

This easy to make baked cheesecake is a simple crowd pleaser. I make this for a visiting friend who loves the biscuit base part of cheesecakes, so this recipe was created to please her. If you like yours a little less crunchy, just use less digestive biscuits. Ingredients 60g butter Half a pack of hobnobs […]
