Pancakes are a treat; they are often cooked in ones pjs on a lazy weekend morning. So topping them with fresh blueberries and ice cream for our Mother’s Day shoot really pushed this already treat food into unchartered breakfast territory
My friend Margaret makes the most incredible Christmas fruit mince every year. This muesli is my tribute - capturing the warm, wintery flavours of her traditional recipe in a lighter, brighter more summery dish. Perfectly paired with a sunny Saturday morning and a short black.
After not writing a blog post for a while I want to say so much about 2015 it really all boils down to being content with the year I’ve had and excited for the year ahead. Although I’ve been light on posts
Roses are one of my absolute favourite things in the world. Inspired by a childhood spent playing outside in the garden, I am completely enamoured with the beautiful flowers and their sweet scent. Both of my Grandmothers have beautiful rose gardens, and I have spent many happy days with them over the years pottering around [...]
This very healthy and delicious (a perfect combo in my humble opinion) recipe comes courtesy of Bekah Carran – artist, budding raw foodist and conveniently partner of my desk buddy Matt. Last week Matt brought in some treats Bekah had made and we just had to get her to share the recipe with us:

This recipe sits somewhere in between a dessert and a breakfast. It has a gelatinous texture similar to that of sago and is creamy like rice pudding, without all the sugar and fat. What makes it even more wonderful is that it is very quick to prepare.
In January I made my second trip up to Qingdao in China’s Shandong province. It was a short trip but we packed in plenty of good food! Over the course of the week, our gracious hosts took us to a variety of restaurants around the city, ordering up plate upon plate of local dishes. I [...]
Autumn is upon us in our wee corner of the world. The dark edges ever closer as the early evenings give way to night. The mornings carry a chill in the air so where once our bare feet trod the pavements, now socks and shoes cushion our footfall and warm our toes.
Whilst there’s not a religious bone in my body, I have been unwittingly espousing the wonders of Fish Fridays! Unbeknownst to me the religious significance of eating fish on Fridays runs deep. Eating fish on this day is a commemorative nod to the sacrifice of Jesus who gave his life (on a Friday) to redeem [...]
