Fennel often gets a bit of a bad rap as having an overpowering licorice-like flavour, or just simply as being a difficult ingredient to use in everyday cooking. I can’t get enough of it, to tell you the truth! It’s actually very versatile to use, changes flavour and texture depending on whether you eat it […]

I’ve always loved baked eggs. When I was little, we often had typical French baked eggs which consisted of eggs cracked into a ramekin, topped with a little whipping cream, chopped fresh chives, a good pinch of fleur de sel and freshly cracked pepper and then baked until the whites are just set and the […]

Picture this: figs doused in Grand Marnier and orange juice that are folded into a tender cake batter made with whole wheat pastry flour, olive oil and a generous amount of fragrant lemon zest. The result? This beautiful dessert from Maria Speck‘s Ancient Grains for Modern Meals. This was the dessert for this month’s Cookbook […]

It doesn’t have to be fancy, or have a ton of ingredients, but it does have to have a little heartiness and a mix of textures and flavours. This is definitely the case with this super easy weeknight salad — it’s got […]

Have you had watermelon radishes before? They’re unassuming pale green exterior reveals a vibrantly pink-hued inside that’s sweet, crunchy and absolutely gorgeous. It always makes me smile when I think of the absolutely stunningly beautiful colours that nature produces, and I find myself happy everytime I slice one of these beauties. A pop of colour […]

This past weekend, I hosted the third iteration of the Cookbook Club I run with Jan from Family Bites and Mardi from eat.live.travel.write. Our dinner was filled with recipes from Ottolenghi’s first cookbook. Enjoying an entire meal with recipes from one same chef is really a fantastic experience. I often tend not to follow recipes […]

Sometimes, excessive snow outside gives you a yearning to bring the summer in and escape. For those days, I opt for a fruity drink like this one, filled with the warm spices and herbs I associate with winter. It’s the best of both worlds, really. The drink starts with a flavoured simple syrup with cardamom […]

When the cold weather makes everything seem a little grey (or white!) a bag of frozen peas does a lot to remind me that spring is undoubtedly on its way. This is the one staple I consistently have on hand in my freezer at all times. I add peas to soups, pastas or turn them […]
