As a Mum I’m always looking for time-saving ways to eat well and overnight oats are just bloomin’ awesome. I’m a total coconut addict so the thought of waking up to bowl of this sunshine yumminess adds cheer to early wake up calls from my little human. (more…)
Frittata’s are my go to quick meal, simple to make and great hot or cold. Even better, my baby loves them too (though I do a version of this recipe without the added sea salt for her). (more…)
One of the last jobs I was booked for before taking my maternity leave was The Food Champions Project for the The National Lottery and The English Institute of Sport. So on a rainy winter day last December I hauled all my gear (and my sizeable 8 month pregnant bump) up to London for an epic two day, 40 recipe, shoot.
So it’s been a while.
Time flies when you’ve got a little person to look after. (more…)
Back in late summer I was commissioned by the Guild of Master Craftsmen to do the photography for their Superfood Christmas Magazine (yup, shooting Christmas images in the summer – the strange life of a food photographer!).
Things have been a bit quite on blog recently as we’ve been excitedly planning for the arrival of our new little lady. I have to say that I was incredibly lucky not to suffer from the dreaded morning sickness during my first trimester. However I did have some pretty strong food aversions and became an absolute carb demon. Salads, spicy curries, and meat suddenly became my mortal enemies, replaced by copious amounts of bread, potatoes and salt and vinegar crisps.

A few pics from a recent summer commercial photo-shoot, featuring a gorgeous iced lavender cake and an incredibly stunning country house garden. Late afternoon sunlight in mid summer is just so perfect!

A quick change of clothes after work and we head off to the seafront 5 minutes away. Cold drinks, skimming stones and the sound of the gentle waves. Our summertime happiness.
The first time I tried halloumi cheese on holiday in Cyprus many years ago I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. As a pre-dinner snack, we would sit outside on the balcony of our apartment at sunset enjoying slices of grilled halloumi and bottles of ice cold beer. Uncooked it’s pretty unimpressive and quite squeaky on your teeth, but pop it under the grill for a few minutes and it transforms into a salty delicious flavour bomb!
