What type of salt should I be using?

I own a salt and pepper grinder, which I top up with Cornish Sea Salt Flakes. Why? Well flavour wise, I don’t really know, but I certainly prefer the texture over my food than fine salt. When I’m busy in the kitchen cooking, I tend to use table salt as the pouring makes it easier Read more

An evening with Parmigiano Reggiano

I confess that whilst I’m a huge fan of eating cheese, I actually know very little about its origins and history.

WeFiFo: Real life Come Dine With Me

Ever wanted to take part in Channel 4’s ‘Come Dine With Me’, but can’t actually be bothered with the prospect of sitting round a table with people deliberately selected to be arse wipes? I have.

Falling in love with Antonio Carluccio over Cirio Tomatoes

Last week was a pretty exciting chapter in my food education, for I met the one and only Antonio Carluccio. Aside from my mum’s Indian cooking, Italian food is my weakness. It makes my knees tremble. It makes my mouth water. It sets all my senses on fire! I once attempted a low carb diet Read more

Gourmet birthday meal…for a cat!

I’ve decided to do a food post for cats – because why not? I think too many people get hung up on not wanting to sound like a crazy cat lady, but since when was it perfectly acceptable to pamper your dog but not a cat? Our fluffball Ripley turned 1 year old today and Read more
