We love making salads out of roasted and toasted veggies.In winter we especially love making salads with cavolo nero– it really gives a different texture and feel to the usual standard salad. We also always like to add some fresh ingredients so you get the...

I make a batch of this zingy and easy salad pretty much every week during winter. It uses up the ever present carrots that come in the organic veg box that I have delivered once a week, but better than that, it's delicious! What I love...

There's nothing quite like the first salad of the season that has been made from ingredients that all come from your own garden. Usually for me this is a simple lettuce salad, maybe dressed with some chives or a few other herbs.  This year, rather excitingly we...

I adore Samphire, that tangy, salty green vegetable that grows on salt marshes and near the ocean.  I particularly love how green and crunchy it is, and also how sustainable it is. You can even forage for it yourself if you know where to look.  It...

This dish is barely a recipe, in fact, it's more of a suggestion really, for a super simple side dish, made with 3 of my favourite spring ingredients. I adore asaparagus. I mean, I really, REALLY love it. I eagerly wait for the first bunches to...

This recipe happened because I wanted an addition to a carby delicious new potato & grilled asparagus dish (recipe coming soon!) , that I was really wanting to make, but knew there really wasn't much in the cupboard.  Fortunately I always and I mean ALWAYS have...

I first served this salad at a spring lunch we held recently, which started out as a few friends for a casual lunch, and escalated to around 25 adults plus 5 kids. Although I thought I'd made loads of food (my motto is never knowingly undercatered),...

The tangy more-ish dressing to this salad was taught to me by an old flatmate of mine, Manri, who not only is a talented textile designer ( take a look at her fabulous work at http://www.manrikishimoto.com) but is a fabulous cook.  When we lived together we would have 'cook...
