Food Round-up: Rhubarb

In my biog I state that I am partial to Cheese, Gin, Peanut Butter, Tea and Rhubarb and that I’m permanently looking for the recipe that can successfully combine them all. The quest continues but I’m focusing on one of my favourites in this month’s seasonal roundup. Rhubarb! I have successfully managed to combine it […]

Food Round-up: Recipes with spring greens

Easter has been and gone and Spring must surely now be in the air? I do hope the Easter Bunny was good to you and you didn’t fall for too many April fools. I do always enjoy seeing the foodie ones and there were some crackers this year. (Loved Jamie’s One Ingredient Cookbook!) I’m keeping things […]

Food Round-up: Wild garlic

Spring is in the air! Or at least it should be… The saying goes that if March comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb. I’m putting all my faith in this following the ‘Beast From The East’ roaring in to kick off the month. For me one of the true signs […]

Food Round-up: Chinese New Year

Unlike our New Year celebrations, Chinese New Year is never on a fixed date and for 2018 it begins this Friday 16th February with the celebrations lasting for 15 days. The timing is dictated by the lunar calendar and the celebration is older than even the Great Wall itself!  The Chinese zodiac moves in a 12 […]

Food Round-up: Veganuary

Happy 2018! Here we are in the middle of January already with the Christmas festivities long gone. For many of us the start of a new year means that it’s time to rein in the excess of food and drink consumption that despite best attempts always seems to be the hallmark of December. It’s actually […]

Food Round-up: Gingerbread

I have a bit of an infatuation with Gingerbread. More specifically Gingerbread Men. They are just SO cute and SO festive and SO tasty! They don’t actually even need to be edible as I have a large selection that hang on my Christmas tree, a few that linger on soft furnishings, there may even be clothes […]

Food Round-up: Pumpkin

We’re into October and that means that Autumn is well and truly here. Time for comfort food and conkers, fireworks and turning leaves, winter woolies and cosy slippers and of course Halloween and Pumpkins. Halloween is undoubtedly a complete godsend when it comes to getting crafty with food and drinks. I think it might be better […]

Food Round-up: Autumn preserves

Can you believe that we’re in September and the kids have all gone back to school? It’s the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. The leaves are turning, the nights are drawing in and the hedgerows are laden with berries. This is the time of the year where my thoughts turn to preserving. The combinations […]

Food Round-up: Say Cheese!

We’re in August. Can you actually believe it?! I don’t know where the Summer Holidays have gone. Seven weeks have flown by so fast. We kicked proceedings off with a family holiday in Italy, a fortnight on a campsite on the shores of Lake Garda. Stunning scenery, plenty of watersports to keep my teens occupied […]

Food Round-up: Barbecue

I can’t believe that we’re in July already! It’s officially Summer Holiday time at long last and I’m hoping that that will mean plenty of hazy, lazy, crazy days with an abundance of alfresco eating and drinking. The type of dining synonymous with this time of year is of course barbecue and with the help […]
