Wild Garlic Ciabatta

Usually at this time of year two things happen, firstly I find myself with an awful lot of wild garlic butter after hitting the woods hard already & secondly, the weather is generally a bit cheerier than it has been for the beginning of spring in 2021. It’s the combination of these two things that …

Vanilla Bundt Cake

Every now & then, I find myself craving simpler, uncomplicated foods. Granted this isn’t often when it comes to something like cake… I adore the weird & wonderful possibilities far too much, but sometimes, you need to take a step back & enjoy the simplicity of the basics. It’s in these moments that I truly …

Wild Garlic & Chive Scones

I don’t think I need to bang on any more about just how much I love wild garlic season & why it’s so wonderful, but this over eager forager may or may not have a fridge rammed with green foliage right now, some of which has been in there for a questionable amount of time. …

Wild Garlic Butter

Sometimes it’s the simplest of things in life that bring the most joy & the same can be said of everything that comes out the kitchen. Good food doesn’t have to be complicated, take hours to make or even look particularly appealing, so long as it tastes good. One such simple treat that comes out …

Wild Garlic Loaf

Ever since I can remember, I have loved garlic bread (who doesn’t?!). Shamefully though in my youth, I refer to the mass produced, butter drenched, garlic baguettes of the supermarket. Ready-made garlic bread is often made with margarine, stuffed full of unpronounceable preservatives & throw in some chopped, flavourless parsley purely for aesthetics. Garlic is …

Wild Garlic & Cheese Pasties

It’s that time of year where everything that comes out of my kitchen has a tinge or side of green & everything smells like garlic (breath included). We’re in one of my favourite times of the year, wild garlic season. I love the flavour of these pungent leaves so much, so I do tend to …

Wild Garlic Pesto

Spring has sprung & the bluebells are out… that can only mean one thing, it’s time to dust off your foraging hat & get outdoors. Granted that’s a little easier said than done this year due to Covid but nonetheless, we can each get out & about for short little foraging walk each day & …

Blood Orange & Ricotta Cheesecake

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you about the joys of a good cheesecake… it’s super simple to throw together, it can be made well in advance, it feeds a crowd & it’s a real crowd pleaser of a dessert. Be it baked, chilled, or crustless, who can resist a bit of cheesecake? But …

Easter Trifle

Pasg hapus pawb! Happy Easter everyone! Easter is one of those beautiful celebrations throughout the year that is surrounded by delicious food, a time where indulgence is key & showstopping cakes or desserts a must (or at least it is in my kitchen anyway!). But, as with any celebration it can come with a little …

Colomba Di Pasqua

Happy Good Friday folks! Where there’s a food associated tradition, I am here for it, particularly when it hails from one of my favourite places (you know, apart from Wales), Italy. Let me introduce you to Colomba Di Pasqua, or ‘Easter dove’. A traditional Easter treat all across Italy, this seasonal treat is the equivalent …
