Silvana de Soissons came bustling into her shop in a wave of cheerful energy, at once leaving everyone in the room feeling jolly. She was clutching a large bag of plump croissants, freshly collected from The Thoughtful Bread Company.
A Few Resolutions
Not only are we well into January, but we’ve managed to survive the dreaded blue Monday without hopping on the next flight to the Maldives. 2016 was an exciting year for me, but I have even higher hopes for the year ahead.
I started the blogging journey as something of a sceptic. If anything it was a creative outlet where I could be disciplined about writing on a regular basis.
January in England is made for comfort food. The promise of snow at the end of the week has me relinquishing to a cosy bowl of risotto, curled up in front of the telly with a Labrador at my feet.
Happy New Year! I’m keeping my first post of 2017 pretty simple. There are few things easier than a classic no churn ice cream. Citrus season is upon us and this is a decadent excuse to use up some oranges.
I’m an advocate of one-pot suppers and am always looking for a simple and indulgent meal to feed a crowd.
Autumn has arrived full of bluster. The clocks have gone back and we’ve been shocked into a new rhythm. The first few days always take some adjustment. By four twilight begins, by five its night.
Hearty, economical and delicious, this version of Sicilian Caponata has become a regular weeknight staple in our household, particularly now that aubergines are in full swing.
Clotted cream is my weakness and I’ve been known to plough my way through an entire tub, armed with a spoon, as if eating yoghurt. I’m also a fan of any efficient catalyst for ferrying this delectable West Country treat into my mouth.
