Cheese and Chive Scones

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Remember cheese and chive crisps? They were made by Walkers back in the 90s, and had little speckly bits of chive (or something green) and were crinkle cut. Best crisps ever. Obviously they discontinued them. They briefly made an appearance a few years ago when Walkers had a campaign to bring back old flavours, except they were not crinkle cut which was a massive shame.

Love a good tangent to start a blog post, now scones. Same flavours as the crisps but better, packed with chives and perfect spread with cold butter straight from the oven. Better than the crisps, for sure. (more…)

Shakshuka is an essential weeknight staple to add to your repertoire – its easy to make, cheap, one-pot, uses mostly store cupboard ingredients, healthy and very adaptable.  (more…)

Turmeric Roasted Aubergine + Coriander Chutney

IMG_2449Writing about food seems entirely trivial after this strange and maddening weekend of limbo, but despite how scary and unknown things are, life carries on. We get up in the morning and go about our days as normal, hoping future days won’t be too different or much worse. Cooking has been a good distraction this weekend, to avoid the car crash that is the press and social media. I want to stay informed, but you need to switch off for your sanity eventually, and the kitchen is an excellent sanctuary.

This is a simple recipe that delivers flavour in spades, and is a perfect weeknight meal with the addition of rice, naan or pita and green vegetables. (more…)
