How to Make: Garlic and Chilli Olive Oil

December 3, 2013

There are a few things in my ingredients cupboard that I would really struggle to live without these days. Spices, a good spatula and a constant, and a probably unhealthy, supply of butter.

Light and Dark Crab and Scallop Pasta

August 18, 2013

So a little while ago, I went through a huge seafood phase. I went to St Ives with my Aunty, Uncle and Cousins and I encountered some of the most delicious seafood I’d ever eaten. I used to be a huge carnivore so this was a bit of a novelty for me. The weather was […]
