Ricotta Ciambellone

If there’s one place in the world that I feel at home, other than Wales, it would definitely be Italy. I couldn’t tell you exactly why, I think it’s a combination of everything… the people, the food, the architecture, the culture (not to mention the considerably better weather!), it’s the most captivating country I’ve ever …

Chocolate & Pistachio Thumbprint Biscuits

My biscuit consumption has exponentially increased during lockdown, so much so that I’m convinced I’m keeping Tunnock’s & McVitie’s in business with my weekly shops alone at this point.

For me, baking at this time of year involves ransacking the storecupboard, lots of dried fruit, syrup & spices in almost everything (if only living off of gingerbread alone were a sustainable diet).  With half a dozen …

Brigadeiros

Satisfying (& totally worth it) toothache with just 4 ingredients… that’s what you get with a brigadeiro. Brigadeiros are a traditional Brazilian dessert, they’re super sweet, gooey, dense & covered in sprinkles, they resemble a fudgy chocolate truffle. The brigadeiro is considered a national icon in Brazil. It’s origins date back to 1945 when the …
