I am off to spend the rest of the school holidays in Cornwall, which involves eating lots of hot cross buns, Cornish saffron buns, very good ice cream and as much treacle tart and clotted cream as possible. I love this time of year. Flowers, fruits and vegetables budding, growing and flourishing. Everything is awesome! Cornish […]

Fresh Herb & Tapenade Flatbreads

This post was supposed to be all about tofu burgers. I found the recipe I wanted to make, made them, and then realised I had used the wrong type of tofu. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as firm tofu. Where do you buy it? Certainly not anywhere near me, I am […]

Pancake day aka Shrove Tuesday is nearly upon us. Next week in fact. Our regular choice of pancake is the classic French style crepe.
