cashew cream cheese

Cashew cream cheese with wild garlic and spring herbs

The shaded corners of my garden are filled with pretty white flowers, which means that the season for wild garlic is almost at its end. The pointed leaves of wild garlic are among the first to start growing after winter, which makes them a welcome herald of spring every year. And as I adore their […]

roasted asparagus

Oven-roasted asparagus with vinaigrette, fresh herbs and capers

Asparagus season is here! As I love this veg, I’m making the most of its wide availability and cook bunches of it every week these days. The sturdy green variety is particularly versatile. It can be blanched or griddled, used as part of a stir-fry or shaved in raw ribbons to make up a salad […]

Easter buns

Soft chai-spiced Easter buns with tea-infused cranberries

Easter is just around the corner. This year it is expected to be an unusual occasion.

As I loved my shop-bought ones, the thought of baking them myself never occurred to me. A pity, really, because everybody knows EVERYTHING, […]

steamed buns

Vegan steamed buns with peppery hoisin glazed mushrooms

When comfort food is called for, steamed buns are the thing. There’s just something about these pillowy Chinese rolls that makes you forget everything around you the moment you sink your teeth in them. You can buy them fresh or frozen at supermarkets and oriental stores, but did you know it’s actually quite easy to […]

strudel

Savoury Christmas wreath with roasted veg and fresh herbs

I love preparing for the holidays. From early December I shamelessly indulge in Christmas songs, pondering on what to get the people I love and particularly what to feed them on the big day. This doesn’t change the fact that mysteriously every year Christmas seems to arrive a week earlier than I expect it to, […]
