09-mrb_rohan1

You probably all know by now that in less than a week I’m shipping out of The Big Smoke and heading back to rural Somerset to camp with my parents for a while and get the Decorator’s Notebook Shop off the ground. In the midst of packing up Le Flat I have started daydreaming about…

plumcake-101

I was won over by Desserts for Breakfast by its name alone… and even better, the content totally lives up to the title. One warning though, those without a sweet tooth should look away now!

I discovered Local Milk through Pinterest where I follow photographer Beth Kirby religiously. She has wonderful taste… obviously a good thing for a food blogger!

However, I have to confess to hesitating before including it on the Food Week menu and I’m not really proud of the reason. I was worried it would seem a…

Food Week: Fig & Fauna

A little-known fact for you… My very first career ambition was to be a farmer’s wife. My four year old self based this decision on one thing and one thing only: that this would give me the chance to hand-milk a cow. At 28, I’ve still never had the chance to milk a cow but…

Food Week: Simply Breakfast

0320121

So, breakfast. The most important meal of the day or an unwelcome intrusion on your beauty sleep? I have a mixed relationship with breakfast… during the week I’m the latter, at weekends the former. But whatever mood I’m in, I love an overhead photograph of it. Fortunate, considering that’s pretty much all you’ll find at…
