There's nothing more satisfying that popping out into the garden, picking some things from the patch and cooking with them straight away. Today's pick was zucchini (which we are currently consuming for breakfast, lunch and dinner!), zucchini flowers and shiso, also known as perilla.Read More
Last month I had the pleasure of being Mount Zero Olives first ever Mount Zero Hero! Each week I shared an original recipe featuring Mount Zero produce. Very proud! With this recipe I used their fresh extra virgin olive oil to make a egg roll (savoury pancake of sorts). This recipe will impress for breakfast, it's super simple. My aim was to make a gluten free 'pita' kind of thing. I ventured into the veggie patch and picked a whole load of fresh greens (you can use any greens in season at the time), mixed with a little feta, fresh herbs and topped with Mount Zeros tasty black olive tapenade. You got yourself one killer breakfast.Read More
If you follow my Instagram you will know I love to forage for my own mushrooms! This dish is great for breakfast or as a side dish to a hearty winter roast. Here I serve it with toasted homemade gluten free bread and scrambled eggs. The combination of butter, garlic chives, thyme, pecorino and prosciutto are classics that suit the mushroom SO well! Give this a go with any mushroom you like, or a combination of them.Read More
Breakfast, lunch or dinner; I love anything with a Spanish twist. I’ve used sweet potato for my tortilla, it's nutritious and sweet, and goes beautifully with the sharp contrast of manchego cheese. To top it off – coriander mojo (ow yeah!), a really tasty little green sauce.Read More
Simple is always best. It’s really nice to use few ingredients for a dish like this because you can taste all the elements, not one overpowers the other, they are all able to shine.
I like serving hot or cold smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, but you could use whatever style of egg you wish. You could serve smoked salmon with a simple frittata for lunch, dinner, or at a picnic, complemented with a yummy green salad! There's so many ways of using this lovely ingredient, and you can even make it yourself!
For those who are unsure, cold smoked salmon is left raw and cured for about 24 hours and smoked without heat. Hot smoked salmon needs a couple of hours to cure and is cooked in the smoking process which turns out flakier and has a lighter colour.Read More
