Ilaria’s found her happy place – though I’m not sure she is going to share.
Summer. Vegetables. Easy.
Serve this alongside lamb or chicken, or as part of a vegetarian meal, but exercise self-control and make sure you put aside enough of this deliciousness for your lunch the next day.
Leftovers (should there be any!) make a great lunchbox staple – beef it up with crumbled feta and extra tomatoes for a light lunch.
Juicy lamb roast to share with friends.
Time for autumn ‘shrooms!
Ilaria’s got it sorted: Soften tomatoes in garlicky oil, squish down, and there’s your sauce!
It’s hard to believe that February is already upon us. Seriously, how did that happen? Mum’s delicious Christmas dinner, the escape up north to the top of Mount Manaia, a house move … all seem like they happened yesterday. Well they didn’t. Time ticking is as simple as that (it ticks!) so for us ‘Southern […]
Ilaria’s got it just right: A sprinkle of mint, a dusting of sumac … smells like summer.
As it turns out, 18 lettuce seedlings in a 30cm x 30cm planter is actually quite excessive.

Feeding yourself cheaply.
What’s with this eggs and avo thing? Just try it.
Spicy and warming, Ilaria’s got just the thing for cold nights!
Cold around your way? Get glögging!
Shiny and green, sweet and crunchy, here’s an easy midweek broccoli dish.
If like us chicken is your go-to, why not mix it up a little? Bring on the prawns, broccoli crumbs and feta!
A sprinkle of spicy chorizo crumb gives Ilaria’s soup a bit of oomph!
Sticky, sweet, lemony-tart, and simply too hard to resist.
Yeah, grey day, soup, Bob and Noble, just going to rock it.
Ilaria’s magic balls! Fluffy golden brown, dissolve in your mouth = gotta have!
I added in a whack of white peach purée half way through the fermenting process in the hopes of creating a delightfully fruity pale ale! While I was unsure what to expect, I have to admit the end result was pretty tasty.

Ilaria’s at it again – dreaming of summer while in the depths of a dreary London winter.
Hi. Ilaria here. It was freakish energetic excitement that helped us get out of bed at a goddam awful time in the morning to catch a cheap flight to Barcelona. But it was all worth it once we touched down about 10am, Spain-time. This city boasts a curiously beautiful balance of 21st century inevitability and […]
Thatched roof, pig on a beach, Durdle Door, whatever next!
