Simple and sublime.
No messing with this baby: slurp, dribble and enjoy the burn.
Bring on the brights. Summer’s not over yet.
You know these are going to taste sensational, all caramelised and deliciously sweet, so just make them!
Brunch, lunch anytime ….
Cake for dessert, cake for afternoon tea, cake for breakfast, cake anytime!
Send your taste buds into orbit with a saucy salsa smashed onto sour dough.
Black boy peaches have succulent melting flesh and buckets of flavour.
Short sharp season. Get them while you can.
It doesn’t take much to take flavours up a notch and to bring variety to the summer grill. With a nod to the clean and uncluttered cooking style the Tuscans favour when it comes to grilling, barbecued meats and fish can taste pretty good with little other than salt, pepper and olive oil, though even […]
Mmm. This tastes as good as it looks.
Stick it to the Colonel – these chicken wings are sensational.
Ilaria’s got it sorted: Soften tomatoes in garlicky oil, squish down, and there’s your sauce!
A proper pudd, but one you can whip up on the fly.
A picture tells a thousand stories, or just one in this case: eat me.

This is loosely modelled on a typical salad you might find around Nice … but there’s a bit of a leap of faith here.
Oh yeah, squish on bread by all means.
Cut eggplants (aubergines) lengthways into long thin slices. Heat a ridged grill pan or sturdy frying pan over medium-high heat. Brush eggplant slices with olive oil (you will probably need to do this in batches, so just brush as many as will fit in the pan without overlapping). Cook on both sides until a good […]
Oh plums, I’ve been waiting for you!
The stuff of summer dreams.
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.
