Inevitably everyone has one of those days where life just gives you a pummelling. The ‘food hug’ is a personal go-to flavour that lets you take a small win during stressful times. For many it’s something sweet; a piece of chocolate or cake. For me, its anise or something sharp and bitter.

Every autumn around Easter time, I always feel the pull of home, the embrace of family and the welcome warmth of a roaring log fire.
Thick? Yes! Creamy? Yes! Super kind on the purse strings? Absolutely! I’d like to point out that I’m completely stoked to have mastered the art of homemade yoghurt making. After the success I had with my dairy free coconut yoghurt I thought I should have a go at the real deal.
I am sure to have made mention in the past as to my sentimental tendencies. Whilst for the most part I can cleverly keep it under wraps, there are times where, despite my very best efforts it bubbles so close to the surface that I can’t help but let it spill over. Like now. And [...]

I’ve had fresh tuna twice this month; two rich doses of omega-3s mean a happy brain and heart. There’s been mixed reviews on tuna in recent years; it’s a tricky debate
If it’s love you are looking for this Valentines Day there is nothing not to love about this beautiful Scottish dessert. Even if haggis isn’t your thing this wee lass is sure to hit the spot. Dunedin, our hometown, is the Edinburgh of the south.
