Raw lucuma banoffee pies

I love banoffee pie with a lifelong devotion and I know I’m not the only one. Being pregnant seemed to magnify this adoration and one of my main early cravings was for something sumptuously rich and creamy, with some saltiness, some sweetness and two of my favourite flavours of the moment thrown […]

Saffron and honey roast pears

I hope you will forgive my silence over the last few weeks. Writing my book has been such a huge process, one I am infinitely grateful for and throwing myself into in every way imaginable, but it leaves little time for other activities. I have spent most of the days […]

Apricot + lemongrass mousse

This little dairy-free mousse is a pretty radical combination of macadamia, apricot and lemongrass.

5 minute healthy choc pots

On the weekend Ben, his brother Dan and I went for a long happy walk in Greenwich park, full of ideas and chats and inspiration looking over the city, and came back to their parents’ house starving. Dan whipped up his signature Sunday roast and I was in charge of […]
