Autumn Pies, Pastries, Tarts & Crumbles Winter

Chocolate Pecan Pie

*Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post After a little trip to Ireland to help host a food photography workshop with Eva, I came back to my new flat and finally, after 3 weeks, christened the oven by baking this pie. Pies aren’t something I bake that often, usually because I’m so impatient and the idea of chilling, rolling out dough, blind baking and all that is not what I’m after. The ONE type of pie that I am willing…

DIY Birthday Cake Oreos

Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post A few months ago I got ROPED INTO* making some ‘Drake on Cake’ style vegan funfetti cakes for my mate Laura’s wedding. Using my prior knowledge of the uselessness of British sprinkles to produce a satisfying funfetti effect (the sprinkles here are always naturally dyed so they just lose all colour upon folding into cake batter), on visiting the US I left room in my suitcase for a) American multicoloured sprinkles and b)…

Charred tomatoes with cold yoghurt (Ottolenghi)

I’m moving out of my parent’s home next Monday!! One step closer to being a real adult, uh oh. As my mum and dad were leaving for a holiday this week, we had a goodbye dinner for me and my boyfriend featuring this charred tomato dish from Ottolenghi’s new book, Simple*. We made flatbreads from my book and some hummus – well, ok, I had a call to take so Andy actually made the dough and hummus alone which he…

Damson Cake with Caramelised Almond Topping (Tosca cake)

Last month on one of the many sweltering days I jumped on the overground to go to Rachel Khoo’s gorgeous Khoolect Studio to celebrate the launch of her new cookbook, The Little Swedish Kitchen*. She made butternut squash waffles and chocolate-raspeberry bullar and we all sat around in the garden having breakfast before being sent off with a copy of the book and a waffle iron (best goodie bag gift ever tbh).…

Four Weeknight Egg Dinners

Thanks to British Lion Eggs for sponsoring this post I’ve been getting back into London life since coming back from my holidays a few weeks ago. It’s been busier than I expected – I’ve been assisting on some food shoots, seeing friends and going up to Leeds to graduate (!) which has all been a bit intense. I’m also flat hunting at the moment for me and my boyfriend and it’s making me feel like an adult way sooner than I…

Runner Bean Samosas with Pineapple Chutney

Thanks to Vitamix for sponsoring this post I’m back from my holidays and for once, the sun is actually shining in the UK. Most summers I’m away coincidentally at the time when England gets its WEEK of sunshine so by the time I’m back, I’ve missed it! However, this weirdly long heatwave has coincided with a time when I’ve needed to be in the kitchen a lot so I’m feeling like a toasted marshmallow 90% of the time.…

Aubergine, Basil & Pomegranate Lettuce Cups

Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post It’s getting to that muggy, sunny part of the year where the days are long and all I want to do is lie outside in the sun and consume ice cream, strawberries and salads. <– I’ve actually been doing all of this since May when I was revising for my exams, as proven by my impressive tan lines underneath my rings.…
