Fig Crostata

September is a month we rarely spend at home, it’s when we’d usually plan our Italian travels for but since Covid it still seems like a far away dream at the moment. Instead of dwell on the disappointment of several cancelled trips though, I’m reminiscing in the way I know best, with food! I’m pretty …

Chocolate & Chilli Tart

What to do when you have an abundance of chillies (besides chilli jam that is)? Like with other ingredients, obviously, you start putting them into anything & everything, plus I do love an experiment, so nothing sweet or savoury is off limits in my kitchen. Besides, you’d be quite surprised at just how many foods …

Tomato & Mascarpone Tart

As is usual during the first few weeks of September, it has been busy! Bowls & baskets full of fruits & vegetables line the kitchen floor, counter tops piled high with jars of preserves, a sink constantly covered in mud, roots or peelings, a fridge bursting with colourful odd shaped bits & an oven that …

Blackcurrant Tarts

It’s July, the weather’s naturally gone a bit grim & there’s nothing but tennis on the telly, our saving grace right now are the bountiful strawberries. It’s been a bumper year for them in the garden this year & they’re available to buy quite cheaply right too. Seeing at it’s Wimbledon season, even if you …

Roasted Apricot & Rosemary Tart

Stone fruit season is finally here which means summer desserts are now an essential part of my baking again. Apricots are always the first to come into season, small, bright & mighty, they pair well with so many flavours. Whilst they might be considered a bit of a bland fruit by many, apricots truly come …

Spring Greens Tart

Although it may not feel as though spring has really arrived yet here in Wales, thankfully the damp & colder weather hasn’t had too much of an impact on our seasonal favourites. The market is still awash with colour & as we wait for the warmer sun of summer & the rainbow that it brings, …

No Bake Fig, Honey & Walnut Tarts

Each year it’s difficult to let the summer go but with the autumn bringing me such tempting delights as apples, grapes & figs, I can almost forgive it for abandoning me (almost). Each gorgeous fruit has it’s own appeal but none quite compare to the dusky-skinned, luscious fig. Thought to be one of the oldest …
