Thanksgiving Recipe: A Delicious Mushroom Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Gravy

November 26, 2015 Friends Food Family

This intensely savoury and thoroughly delicious gravy is the perfect sauce for Thanksgiving. It’s so delicious that I promise meat-eaters will love it too, and any vegetarian or vegan who may be sitting around your Thanksgiving table will thank you forever for making something they can have too. Especially as I’ve found that most people who don’t eat turkey would […]

Recipe: Slow Roasted Tomato, Barley & Feta with Lemon Thyme

October 22, 2015 LLG Food

There is something almost alchemical in the way that an almost tasteless tomato becomes rich with flavour when slow cooked in an oven. This has become one of my go to dishes when the heady flavour of summer tomatoes starts to give way to the more bland and often pappy texture of imported fruit. In […]

Recipe: Summer Berry Naked Layer Cake (Whisked Fatless Sponge)

September 1, 2015 LLG Food

I’ve been amused for the trend for ‘naked cakes’, which has appeared all over Pinterest, Instagram and many, many blogs. A classic English sponge cake does not traditionally have frosted sides, so ‘naked’ isn’t a thing for us, just the way we’ve done it for years…(although that’s not to say that a lot of icing […]

Travel: The Moonraker Hotel in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire

July 28, 2015 LLG Food

I can’t believe it’s a year since Hannah and I packed our camping gear into a huge rental car, and set off for the Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall (which takes place this coming weekend). On a good day, it’s a five hour drive from London, on a bad one you don’t even want to […]

Food: Eating at Market Camden with Lettice & Maisie

July 15, 2015 Dogs

One of the things I love about living in my part of Camden is the close proximity to wonderful grocery stores and restaurants, in particular Parkway Greens, possibly London’s best greengrocers, and Market, a wonderful restaurant serving excellent modern British cooking, using interesting seasonal ingredients. They serve a delicious brunch at weekends, have great set […]

Easter Sunday Lunch: Roast Leg of Lamb and all the fixings & Quinoa Cauliflower Cakes

April 4, 2015 LLG Food

My cookbook Friends, Food, Family has an entire Weekend Entertaining section because it’s one of my favourite ways to bring people together. My suggestions for Easter lunch are all taken from recipes in the book, with one twist. That being said, these are all fairly simple ideas, even if you don’t have a copy – perish […]

March 24, 2015 Friends Food Family

New Potato, Goat’s Cheese and Thyme Tart I was thinking about meat free recipes only last week, as a friend mentioned she wasn’t sure if there were any vegetarian dishes in my cookbook Friends, Food, Family. Rest assured, I exclaimed! There are plenty.
