Book Review: A Modern Way to Eat by Anna Jones

As a vegetarian of 20+ years, and *ahem* cookbook hoarder of 10+ years, I already own quite a few Vegetarian cookbooks. What drew me to pick this one was that it seemed to be similar in style to another series of vegetarian cook books that I like by Heidi Swanson. The book itself is beautiful […]

Chickpea and Spinach Pie

My old job was located right in Bristol city centre. Close proximity to all kinds of tasty foodstuffs, including the joy of Pieminister Mothership Tuesdays, Pippin doughnut Fridays, and a little place called Royce Rolls, which was just inside St Nick’s Market, and sold super tasty flapjacks sarnies and bits of pastry.

Rose Elliot’s Mediterranean Barley Risotto

I did mean to make this yesterday… but time sort of got away from me, and I was completing my Star Wars education by watching Return of the Jedi…. Yes, up until this last week (when I bought Mr M the complete saga on Bluray), I had never seen Star Wars…. This was a recipe […]
