Salt in my chocolate

Fri, 28 Aug 2009 15:56:43 +0000

    I knew this morning that today would be a day of tears.  The tide of emotion has been rising for some time, the dam wall I have built hampering the natural ebb and flow of joy and sorrow, until I am overwhelmed by a flash flood.  My time in Africa is coming to […]

My most often made version of cassoulet – or homemade pork sausage, garden veg and beans

Tue, 16 Jun 2009 15:17:39 +0000

This tart is really quick and easy.  It uses one of my favourite pastries, one that is quite biscuity which really compliments the comforting bland juiciness of the apples.  Feel free to use as much sugar and spice for the filling as you require.  The best tarts are always tailor made. For the pastry: work […]
