London Life: Painting Protoges and Pink Cocktails

London Life: Painting Protoges and Pink Cocktails

I can’t actually remember the last time I picked up a paintbrush. It must have been sometime between my first yoga class (outside of my mother’s living room) and the acquisition of my first chefs knife. Suffice to say it has been a while. Clearly long enough ago that I confused the way of holding… Read more »

Venison and Confit Onion Rissoles with Artichoke Mash

Venison and Confit Onion Rissoles with Artichoke Mash

Oooh arrr I love a good meatball. In fact, there are no less than 3 variations of them with different mince, herbs and spices in my cookbook. Rissoles are essentially meatballs shaped into a small croquette shape, instead of being round. The different is minimal, but the temptation to call it something that sounds fancy… Read more »

After Eight Smoothie - Tess Ward Healthy Recipe Shake Chocolate

After Eight Smoothie (only for grown ups)

This might just be the most chin lickable smoothie out there… Just saying. As the name suggests it is not the morning sort, to have with your toast, or buckwheat granola (if you are that way inclined) It is a more seductive late night sort, only to be eaten after dark. It makes more than… Read more »

London Eating: Tarts, Tea and Glutenfree Treats

London Eating: Tarts, Tea and Glutenfree Treats

In case you didn’t know, the weather in London is pretty rotten in January. Rain drizzles, the clouds remains a seemingly consistent dull grey, the wind is biting and noses are most often red and runny. Basically it is not the sort of weather for being out and about ambling the streeets, but instead the time to be cozied… Read more »

There is honestly few salads I like more than this one. I mean it, I have developed a bit of an obsession with it this last week and have made it no less than three times since I have been home…. A little excessive I know, and probably not the best thing to have on the… Read more »
