My garage is full of apples. 

Yes, I now have a garage. And a house, indeed. No longer confined (even at the best of times), to our small Parisian flat, we have flown the nest and landed in what feels like a palatial mansion in the French country...

This is a new contender in my scrummiest store cupboard (mostly) suppers league. Based on the original Indian butter chicken, the nutrient-rich cauliflower yields a lighter overall result and is appropriately penny saving. The only fresh items you’ll need are a caulifl...

Chocolate almond cake

I’m not one to need an excuse for chocolate cake. 

But if ever there was one, an Easter Sunday in lockdown would have to trump all others. 

Here is a special guest recipe from Mistress of Baking EM, with whom I am lucky enough to be sharing the lockd...

I’m pleased as punch to be starting a new collaboration with Balance Garden this week. Have a look at what they've got going on, there's aplenty. 

Here’s a rustic and comforting quiche to get the ball r...

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...

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.
