It’s been a long time since I last posted about food. There is always too much to talk about and not enough time for me to blog and do it all with the family and life in general.
WHITE FISH: fresh or frozen?
Fish has taken a great place in our food at home. I am not a big meat person and certainly, I have gone off red meat in the last few years. I can still eat it but it is not really a pleasure anymore for me. L’Homme who used to eat a lot more meat has happily transitioned to eating fish so that’s a bonus and the kids enjoy it too.
I wanted to share with you today a few ideas on how to cook white fish.
First of all, I would like to say that 90% of the time I use frozen cod fillets. Why? Continue reading
We are just back from a wonderful holiday in Spain and I am slowly readjusting to normal life here in London. Before we headed out, I was on a mission the clear the fridge and it’s always tricky to avoid any wastage. Dedicated to using most – if not all – of our fresh stuff I prepared this delicious ‘tricolour’ vegetable and goat cheese tart with a Jus Rol puff pastry.
With age and a few traumatising stories heard over the radio about the situation in certain slaughtering houses in France (article about it in English here or en francais la), I have gone more and more off meat and red meat in particular. I still occasionally eat some but the enjoyment is not quite there anymore. I have always loved fish and these days, I am only too happy to eat more of it. I am constantly on the look for alternatives to my classic papillotes cooking fish and fish cakes.
I have found this Fish curry recipe in my Waitrose supermarket. I have mentioned in previous posts (here and here) how I love those recipe cards they produce every month. Cooking books often include lots of recipes that I will never use, the bonus of picking and choosing your recipe card(s) out of a selection is that you know you are more likely to use the ones you take.
Hello all, I was meant to write an epic post when things did not happen quite as planned this week. It all started as usual with lots of playgroup activities, school pick up and drop off, cooking and other chores and my college day which is always a joy. And then on Thursday I went to do a photoshoot for a friend of mine’s new products and all of sudden everything went pear shaped.
🇬🇧 I have tried and tested a wonderful, wonderful pasta recipe for you and it would be selfish not to share it with you. It’s the pumpkin, butternut squash season and it’s time to make the most of those delightful veg to create a beautiful pasta dish. All right, the time given on the recipe says 20mn, I would say it’s probably a bit longer, probably more around 30mn but it’s worth it if you are cooking it for a lovely friend, partner, husband. It’s definitely not the kind of dish I would cook just for the kids, they just would not appreciate the work that goes behind let alone the wonderful flavours.

Those who know me will know I am quite (to say the least) partial to freshly baked cakes and biscuits. My mum is a fabulous cook and baker
Got the best banana loaf recipe ever. It was given to me by one of the mums at my daughter’s playgroup last year and now I swear by it. This one is just so moist, it’s a delight! Try it out at home. Recipe here! I also replaced the spices by one tea spoon of vanilla extract and added a pack of chocolate chips – much to the kids’ delight!!!!
