Winning pasta meal in minutes

I’ve recently been doing some work with some of the great Cambridgeshire bloggers and I have been inspired by some of the amazing talent out there and the passion for food in our corner of the world. This weeks “Tastier Tuesday” is a twist on a recipe by Pina from onetwoculinarystew, a Canadian foodie living…

Sweet Spanish Sunshine for Your Table

I was fortunate enough to have a peppermint tea last week with Estafania Led Ramos, Managing Director of Que Rico Tapas, Cambridgeshire’s premier Spanish catering company. Estafania had brought with her a range of Spanish delicacies from the beautiful and diverse region of Aragon in Northern Spain that she was bringing over to the UK….

Vegalicious

  My Tuesdays have just got even tastier with the Old Granary Organic Fruit and Vegetables in Linton! We love our fresh organic fruit and veg but you can’t always get what you want in the supermarket so we were over the moon when our local fruit and veg shop said that they would put…

Cambridge Scotch Egg Company

My first testimonial

When my work at the publishers ended I took a punt and pitched to a few companies with a business idea that I had been thinking about for a long time. Out of the first two I approached both came back to me very quickly wanting to know more. I was overwhelmed! Since then I have…

Who knew home made Sauerkraut was so easy and yummy!

  A very good friend of mine was gushing about how amazing her homemade Sauerkraut was. At the time this wasn’t something that appealed to me but when a cabbage arrived in my veggie box i felt compelled to try this out. I am always slightly concerned when certain food stuffs become “trendy” so i…

Coconut Sugar Test – can the kids tell?

We had our friends over this weekend and amongst the chaos of 6 adults who want to chat and catch up and 6 kids who want to run wild, we managed to carry out the taste test. Everyone had 2 slithers of cake with berries, ice cream and cream 🙂 and they were asked to…
