MY ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS FEAST

  Confession time – I’m not actually the biggest lover of turkey and all the trimmings. When it’s just us, we actually go BBQ style and cook Christmas lunch outside on our outdoor kitchen instead. This year we’re being hosted for Christmas, so I will smile sweetly and of course enjoy the turkey. But I’m the host for Boxing […]

Violet’s Fig leaf ice-cream

Violet’s Bakery is a bit of an institution round our way. The owner, Claire Ptak, is a Cali girl who sold her amazing home bakes at Broadway Market for 5 years before opening Violet’s. It’s just down the road from us, and a favourite indulgent lunch stop. Their rosemary infused cheese...

Behind the scenes

A peak into one of my typical days, plus some news about an exciting new project I'm working on!

VIBRANT FOOD

In my next life I think I might be a chef, or at least a full-time home cook please. I could live somewhere permanently warm (although I love fires in winter so that could be a problem!) I’€™ll grow and forage things from my huge garden, probably in California and then sell...
