Dinner Club – Mini Apple Tart Tatain

This week Dinner Club fell on Bastille Day and since, as I’ll tell anyone who will listen, I lived in Paris for two and a half years, I insisted we celebrated. One of the early Dinner Clubs was ‘Three Pie Week’ – a terribly misguided idea that it would be funny to have a meal…

Cinnamon Sugar

I’m a big fan of a slightly spiced flavour, and this infused sugar is a beautifully simple way to achieve that in anything and everything. This sugar is great for using in cakes, pastry, cocktails – really anything sweet that could do with a little added depth of flavour. What you need: A small jar with…

The Sous Chef & The Wasp

I love Sous Chef, but up until now that love has been an abstract idea since, despite the hours I’d spent filling up dream shopping baskets, I’d never actually bought anything. Until now! I bought a mixture of things I needed that Sous Chef had cheaper than Amazon, things I’d heard of but never tried,…

Unemployment Resolutions.

Not knowing what’s going to happen next can be amazing. It can be and exciting and invigorating chance to throw caution to the wind and fly by the seat of your pants. Or it can be a terrifying time of confusion and feeling as though you’re not in control of your own destiny. I’m back in…

This week for Dinner Club, since it’s still super hot outside, we went for a light dinner with tropical tastes, because – when in Rome. Hemsley and Hemsley have a fantastic cook book, and are regular contributors to Vogue. We used this recipe exactly as Vogue printed it – because I didn’t make any additions or changes…

‘Redefining Expectations’ AKA ‘Accepting I’m a Millennial’

Not too long ago, you couldn’t swing a cat around the internet without it hitting a post about Millennials. The needy, greedy entitled generation that followed Gen X, and who were going to leave nothing behind them but a trail of debt and a bunch of mobile apps. They – we – were reportedly marching their way…

Sunday Bake – Caramel and Walnut Coffee Cake

Sunday Bake is a long held, and much loved, tradition in our house. Ever since I got Jane Horbys’ totally beautiful ‘What to Bake and How to Bake It‘ for Christmas last year, it’s been a regular guest star of the event. Sunday Bake is a chance for my boyfriend and I to do something…

All Good Things Are Wild and Free(lance)

When I left my job, as I saw it I had two options: commit to a quarter life crisis or call some recruiters. So I poured a G&T and got on the phone – because as my CV will attest, I’m a fantastic multi-tasker In the last couple of weeks I’ve had a lot of…
