At My Table – Nigella Lawson

I am loving Nigella Lawson's new book 'At My Table' - a perfect celebration of all the things food should be: easy, flavourful and comforting. On opening the crips new pages, I was instantly taken by the wonderful photography which makes the recipes come alive and your mouth starts to water.


My favourite podcasts

I spend a fair bit of time travelling around the county as part of my job and, I don't know about anyone else, but I was getting really bored of some of the radio content available on DAB.

Our York(ie) adventure

We spent last weekend in the lovely city of York when a friend of ours was doing the Yorkshire marathon. Anyone who knows me will know how excited I was at the prospect of going to the York Roast Co. for one of their famous Yorkie pud wraps.

Returning to piano

From a very young age I always wanted to play piano and throughout school, like a lot of children, I jumped from playing the cello, guitar, keyboard and drums. I would take regular lessons, then after a while, didn't have an interest in it any more.

Sausage and red lentil casserole

What do you do when you've got a packet of sausages that need using but want something a little tastier than sausage and mash? Returning home yesterday I realised that we also had a tub of red lentils that were in desperate need of being used in something yummy and comforting. So I set to and pulled together a rich and, if I do say do myself, rather delicious casserole.

Floridian foodie

Having spent three weeks in Florida this Summer, it was obvious that food was going to play a big part of our holiday. Whether we were cooking in our villa, out to a restaurant or getting take out, the wealth of choice over in the States is kind of overwhelming.

Lemon and sultana cake

My dad turned 70 recently and whilst I wanted to make him a lovely birthday cake, I also wanted to make sure that it was traditional and classic (just like my dad). I had some lemons and half a bag of sultanas leftover, so I thought a lemon and sultana cake would be perfect.
