I rarely make novelty/themed cakes as they are not my strength, and there are many out there who are true cake artistes. But I do love a challenge and …

This is a totally fuss-free light meal: freshly made sourdough (toasted), crispy pancetta and a slowly cooked duck egg, with a few fresh chives snipped over the top. When simplicity reigns!

This is one of my favourite summer desserts and is what I think is a stunning finale to any meal. They are certainly fantastic served as part of Afternoon Tea. Eaten at …

Caramel-filled chocolates are right up there among my favourite chocolates to make, so this time I used smoked sea salt to flavour the caramel. These are great to give to people as gifts or simply to munch on without guilt! Not a lot needs to be said about these as they are just dark chocolate …
