Fancy making a glorious summer dessert that’s full of interesting flavours and doesn’t require too much effort? This deconstructed apricot, whisky and honey cheesecake fits the bill beautifully. It’s a perfect pudding for entertaining and will wow everyone who tastes it. Although, it’s probably one for the adults rather than the kids. The recipe comes from A Flash in the Pan by John Whaite. Read on for my review as well as the recipe. Plus there’s a chance to win a copy of the book.
Fattoush with sumac hummus and pomegranate is one of the many gorgeous salads you’ll find in Nicky Corbishley’s cookbook, Seriously Good Salads. It’s fresh and zingy with a whole host of flavours that really sing. And it makes for a most fabulous summer lunch.
Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy … I think you’re probably getting the drift. It’s my birthday and what would make a better gift than chocolate? Only this time I’m keen to offer you some too. Or at least I want to give one lucky reader the chance to win some Pacari premium organic chocolate. But don’t despair, I also have a bonus offer of a 10% discount to all EU readers. Oh, and did I mention, yesterday was World Chocolate Day.
At last we have the long awaited (by me at least) vegetarian cookbook from Sabrina Ghayour. Bazaar: vibrant vegetarian recipes is pretty much what you’d expect from the title. It’s packed with mostly Middle Eastern inspired recipes from a talented flavour enthusiast. Flick through the pages and you’ll find dishes both vibrant and exciting. Read on to learn more about the book along with a recipe for roasted aubergine carrot couscous. Oh, and there’s a giveaway too.
Despite the unprepossessing name that Cornish Hevva Cake is sometimes given, this lightly fruited bake is not particularly ‘heavy’. It is, however, absolutely delicious. The bake falls somewhere between a sweet scone and a light fruit cake. As with many traditional bakes, Tesen Hevva (its Cornish name) is very easy to make.

Beetroot is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. Are you a beetroot lover or hater? We’ve got one of each in our household.

Read on for the recipe, a review and an opportunity to win a copy of the book. Hang on, make that two.
What a summer we’ve had and there’s still all to play for. I do love an Indian summer when the days are warm and the nights turn chilly. Whatever happens, I intend to stay in sandals until October at least. I’m celebrating the season in lots of ways and one of them is by offering you this delightful all vegan summer bundle giveaway. A bottle of Rock Rose summer edition gin, two packs of Doisy & Dam’s new chocolate snaps and a couple of jars of Pip & Nut’s special edition chocolate orange almond butter.
There are some really good vegan cookbooks being published these days. What a relief. I remember the days when you were lucky to get a dry as dust burger when you were out. Now there’s all to play for. Award winning vegan street food pioneers David & Charlotte Bailey ‘s book: Fresh Vegan Kitchen, is one of the good ones. Their TLT or tofu lettuce tomato sandwich has completely won me over to the wonders of smoked tofu. I have a copy to giveaway for one lucky reader. You’ll find details near the end of the post.
