Some cakes are made to be drizzled with warm custard and this one is no exception. Of course it’s also fab with custard and / or cream, it’s entirely up to you. However the silky-ness of the custard paired with this warm, spicy and aromatic sponge is just heavenly.
Inspired by the Hot 8 Brass band from New Orleans, this authentic gumbo recipe really knocks your socks off. Fresh vegetables wrapped around a thick spicy sauce, punctuated with sticky chicken, spicy sausage and the odd pop of a succulent prawn, is the perfect way to start an evening with friends or in front of the TV or just because you deserve it.
For a vegetarian patty to be robust enough, I believe chickpeas are the answer, and they can take a lot of flavour. They are also incredibly versatile, affordable and go a very long way. Next time you want some patties, bung these on your barbecue!
Gorgeous as a girly treat for high tea with your besties, or fabulous for a romantic ‘dessert à deux’ (leaving you half a dozen to choose from when you need a sweet midnight feast!)… These quick and sumptuous tarts are summery, impressive, yet so simple – You’ll be whipping them up in a flash whenever your heart desires…
This is the most LUSH way to have breakfast OR if you want a seasonal, quick, sweet, easy dessert, everything is just waiting in your pantry. By the time you’ve toasted your crumpet (oooh Mrs), your plums are hot, sticky and ready!!

It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me, that my passion is food, the big astonishment however, if God came down right now and said, ‘ok Jax, choose a passion for the rest of your life’, I would drop food like a hot rock and pick music. Vinyl, CD’s and of course back…
