Berry season is upon us! This refreshing pudding is perfect to end a BBQ on a warm evening. I find the traditional way of serving it out of a bowl appropriate for a family meal but not fancy enough for a special dinner. I served it in finger sandwich shapes and added a splash of Chambord in the berry mix to posh it up.
This healthy dish takes no time at all to prepare. No BBQ? Pop it in the oven instead! You can also substitute the whole Sea Bream with Sea Bass or salmon fillets. The aluminium wrap ensures the fish doesn’t dry out and infuses with the lemon and dill, or any spices/herbs you like.
I have been so busy with work these past few months and I can see that my blog is suffering. This week end though, I was not working but I have another excuse… it’s sunny! London was hot hot hot! Sun shining, blue sky, and a really really messy garden!! So with that BBQ we have planned to host next week end, there was only one thing to do: GARDENING! Quick breakfast, garden clothes and crocs on, it is time to invest some time on these herbs, tomatoes, rhubarb, beans and much more that will eventually end up in my recipes!
A plant that combines Garlic and Mustard? I wonder why I haven’t heard of it before… Not surprisingly it is called Garlic Mustard or Alliara Petiolata and it is now the best time to forage it if you’re lucky to find some around.
Ordering 5kg of blood oranges was over estimating my enthusiasm to make marmalade… so I had to come up with ideas to use up some of these tangy and gorgeous looking oranges. This cheese cake is very creamy and could possibly be eaten only with its crunchy and gingery base, but the tangy blood orange jelly cuts through the white chocolate and served cold it makes a refreshing dessert.
Imagine basking in the sun on a lounger beside a pool and lazily looking up from your magazine to gaze at the small café where you got married? This is what you get when you decide to exchange vows with your amazing husband at the Brockwell Lido in London. Mr and Mrs Harris will feel that way every time they visit their local swimming pool and how many people can say that they’ve got married in a venue where they can go to every single day? I love local weddings, and especially those in small venues that carry so much meaning for the couple.
