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

These are really simple nibbles for a starter or as part of a larger antipasti dish. Ingredients 2 courgettes Handful of rocket 5 sundried tomatoes (cut into small chunks) Ricotta (1 tub – about 600g) Olive oil Salt/pepper Half a lemon Method Slice the courgette with a vegetable peeler and fry in a little bit […]

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, […]

Unless you fancy eating buckets of cheese for every meal, the humble vegetarian will spend the majority of the holiday nursing a bloated, sickly stomach. 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 […]

The one, the only: Yotam Ottolenghi

If you are vegetarian and not familiar with Ottolenghi, then you really are missing out on the king of all things salad. Ottolenghi’s recipes make humble green leaves sing with joy thanks to his introduction of exotic flavours, herbs and spices. Fresh, clean flavours are key to his style of cooking and while the ingredients […]
