Paris doesn’t really do Halloween. Dressing up? Non, merci.

I can see myself indulging in a little harmless family fun a few years down the line by sending the boys around to terrorise the neighbours. Children at the door? Frightening indeed. 

Sadly they’re both still in...

Apple and carrot paleo loaf

Yep. I’m that person. 

Cooking for a gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, grain free, yin yoga retreat in Provence? 

SURE. Paleo is my middle name. 

It was a challenging spec for me: we eat a lot of grains at home, hardly any meat, not t...

BASIL AND HAZELNUT PESTO

It’s been a while. 

A new arrival in the family AND a husband in Siberia (apparently a coincidence) have meant that I haven’t had mountains of time on my hands.

But, I have been cooking. Needs must. With one babe in the sling and the other clatter...

Peanut and sesame cold noodles

Another noodles post. Because who doesn’t love a slippery, slurpy bowl? As the days continue to swelter, it’s nice to have plenty of cold dinners up the proverbial sleeve, too. 

After two indulgent weeks in gastronomic Dijon pigging out on...

PASTA WITH ROASTED COURGETTES, LEMON, PARMESAN AND HERBS

Here’s a lightening quick recipe for the long summer nights. Because, yes, I’ll admit it, sometimes there’s more fun to be had outside the kitchen than within. 

The exquisite CB rustled this up for lunch when I was...

COCOA AND BANANA FROZEN MOUSSE

This might just be my new favourite thing. I’m calling it a frozen mousse, but it tastes somewhere between a chocolate milkshake, a cold mousse and Angel Delight. DELICIOUS. With only TWO ingredients it would be tricky to find something si...

ITALIAN PASTA AND BEAN SOUP

It’s getting to the time of year when eating seasonal in Northern Europe starts to get a tad monotonous. There’s only so much I can do with a leek (see here and here for starters). What I wouldn’t do for a freshly podded pea or a pert stick o...

LEEK TART TATIN

I’ve decamped to delectable Dijon this month for work, with the family in tow. A humble leek tart may strike you as a bizarre thing to be making in the gourmand capital of Burgundy, but with all the lunch-time restauranting, it’s been welcome to have a f...

LEEK AND GOATS' CHEESE RISOTTO

I’ll admit, I was reminded this morning that it was Valentine’s Day by texts from my brother and girlfriends rather than by a frisky wakeup greeting from DS. Mostly through laziness, we’re not ones to make a big song and dance about the da...

VEGETABLE TAGINE WITH BEJEWELLED SPELT COUSCOUS

Oh my. The holiday feasting has been intense. 

The bonus of being married to a Russian is that there is never any argument over where we spend Christmas: in Russia, New Year’s Eve is the main event. Orthodox Christmas, much...
