I had been looking Turkish Delights the last few times I went to the grocery store, so I finally decided to get it. It’s a beautiful book, written by a UK based chef who has a Turkish father and partner. It’s a beautiful journey through the country and there are lots of recipes I want… Continue reading Turkish Delights – Stewed kale, chickpeas and bulgur
I bought a bunch of mushrooms thinking I would make risotto. But then I made asparagus risotto. So…what to do with all the mushrooms?! This is the first recipe I’ve made out of the Rachel Khoo’s Little Paris Kitchen.

And it was lurking in my cookbooks. I’ve been experimenting with pizza recipes for a few years now. Mostly complicated recipes with 00 flour and long rising times in the fridge. Pizza was good, but not amazing. The dough wasn’t soft; it was often too dense. Likely because I can’t cook it at 900 degrees… Continue reading The pizza dough of my dreams…
