Spinach & Ricotta Courgetti Bake

I LOVE pasta, I will happily confess this and, regularly, bang on about it quite a bit. However, I am also aware that the amount of pasta I would happily stuff my face with is not necessarily that good for me and leaves me feeling heavy, stuffed and bloated. I have by no means given…

Grilled Tuna with Aubergine & Freekeh Salad

As tuna of the tinned variety has become so common in our diets we often dismiss it as a bit of a store cupboard staple and forget what a nice piece of fish it really can be. Don’t get me wrong, I always have a supply of tinned tuna in the cupboard but it’s become…

Salmon, Spinach & Ricotta Tortilla Pizza

I really love cooking fish for dinner. I’m a big fish fan and it’s generally so much quicker and easier to cook well than meat. It is also lighter and less fatty. However, it’s one of those things I have a limited number of ways to cook in my repertoire. Roast it and serve with…

Roasted Duck Leg with Carrots, Parsnips & Bean & Spinach Stew

Duck is something I had never cooked before this dish. I sort of unexpectedly ended up giving it a whirl too. For my Mum’s birthday I asked her if she could have any dinner what would it be and I would cook it for her as a birthday treat. She initially said fish (which I…

Bellaria, Fitzrovia

If you’ve been keeping up to date with recent blog posts you’ll know that I’ve recently started a new job and left my beloved Soho behind. Okay, so Fitzrovia is hardly a million miles away, but it means I’ve got a whole load of new restaurants and cafés to explore. Yesterday evening I began doing…
