Taking a Break From Blogging, Anxiety and Other Stuff!

This isn’t a normal foodie post, mainly because I have been suffering from a touch of writers block. Due to some recent changes, I have been feeling incredibly overwhelmed lately, and not taking enjoyment from things I am normally so passionate about- cooking for example. Instead of forcing myself to get writing, I have decided…

Chocolate Easter Nests!

This is such a simple, but tasty, recipe that can be done by anyone, of any age, at a really low cost! There are so many variations of this recipe online, but I followed a BBC GoodFood recipe that I will link at the bottom. I used double the ingredients as I had lots of…

River Cottage- B R E A D!

The second day was slightly different to the first, primarily because we spent a lot of time prepping and tending to our bread we were making. I won’t go into loads of detail in regard to the bread, but here is a little rundown of what we did. We were baking two loaves, a wheat…

River Cottage Pudding 2- Chocolate Fondant!

The weather was beautiful on Sunday, and instead of getting the tractor down to the farm house, we laced up our walking boots and walked down the bumpy path. On our walk we were able to see the beautiful views around River Cottage HQ, valleys and fields and also a lovely heard of Ruby cows. Their…

River Cottage Pudding 1- Panna Cotta and Puff Pastry Fingers

Over the weekend we made two puddings, both of which I will DEFINITELY be making at home again. So, our first dessert was a panna cotta, our ingredients were: Gelatin Whole Milk Double Cream Sugar Optional flavour (I will explain this in a sec) Although I cannot remember the exact measurements, I know it was equal…

River Cottage- Blog 2, Cheesy Gnocchi with Cider Cream Sauce!

Following on from my blog yesterday, I will be writing about another dish that we made- gnocchi. When I saw baked potatoes on Connor’s work counter I must admit I automatically got quite nervous. How do you explain to a chef that you don’t like potato???? However, as he went onto describe our next course,…

River Cottage Cooking Course… Blog 1!

(PSA: I did want to blog about my whole first day at River Cottage HQ, but I cannot fit it all into one piece, and I just don’t have the energy- I promise there will be more to come) Firstly, thank you so much to my AMAZING mum  for giving me the chance to take part…

Pascere, Brighton- A Real Treat

I have visited Pascere once before, before my blog had begun, yet I knew this is was somewhere I really wanted to write about. The whole restaurant feels luxurious, and the food is inspiring. As someone young who loves cooking, I love tasting new food and new flavour combinations, as well as seeing how beautifully…

Hearty Winter Veg Soup, Perfect For Beating a Cold (I hope).

The spring cold seemed inevitable really, everyone has been battling with sniffly noses and tickly coughs for the past few weeks, and now it is my turn. As I have a busy few weeks ahead I decided I was going to tackle it head on… with some winter veg soup. I am also away quite…

Ratatouille!

As well as being a great film, ratatouille is one of my favourite dishes to make. It is simple yet hearty, and leaves your house smelling amazing. I do not make this recipe very often, however, I finally used my last frozen portion a few weeks ago, so knew it was time for another batch….
