Traditional Foods: Why We Need Them Back on the Table!

It’s finished!  My book ‘Once Upon a Cook – Food Wisdom, Better Living: The Wisdom and Science of Traditional Foods, Forgotten Skills and Nourishing Recipes’ is finally done!  For almost a year I’ve had my head down, eyes-to-the-screen, fingers a-flying and not least, nursed a stiff neck and aching back working...

Mineral Broth – A Micronutrient Powerhouse

Mineral broth is a micro-nutrient powerhouse!  This restorative vegetable broth is rich in magnesium, potassium and sodium – important minerals that are significantly depleted in our soils and in consequence, on our plates. This broth is pure goodness, whether on its own, or mixed with gut and connective-tissue healing bone broth...

Cinnamon & Ginger Stuffed Apples for Pork, Poultry or Game

This lovely blend of flavours (sweet, spicy and slightly sour) pairs beautifully with roast pork, poultry or game and looks amazing on any celebratory table.  When I make traditional applesauce (whether silky smooth or chunky) I favour it slightly tart, to off-set the sweeter roast meats. I tend to use Cox’s apples as...

Mustard & Maple Glazed Roast Parsnips

This is simple glaze transforms the humble parsnip – or for that matter, any root veg – into a thing of complete deliciousness, more than worthy of a place at any celebratory table.  But actually, I don’t wait for an occasion; I’ll take these as my main carb with… well, just about any meal!...

Vichy (Glazed) Carrots

Vichy carrots are a French classic and this way of cooking carrots is simple, quick and absolutely delicious!   The carrots are cooked with sugar, water, lemon juice and butter until they are just tender and the melted sugar forms a buttery glaze.  Just take a little care to avoid overcooking...

Strawberries and Coconut Cream Pops (Dairy-Free & Egg Free)

I LOVE this recipe from SHAINA OLMANSON  (100 Days of Real Food). Shaina says; ‘‘It’s wonderful with any fresh fruit. Use your seasonal favorites, from raspberries to peaches. In-season fruits shine here, blending with the creamy coconut milk. The bit of added honey or maple syrup helps lower the freezing point...

Salad of the Season? Spinach, Orange & Cucumber

This salad is one of our my favourites and it’s delicious! What can I say? Oh, it’s THE salad of the season! I love to pair this punchy salad with a balance of protein, fats and carbs: well-seasoned, sliced cold grilled steak; smoked meats or fish; a real, proper pate; ripe raw, soft...

Beetroot and Avocado Breakfast Soup. Paleo, or Any Cuisine!

There’s a perfect solution for that ‘between’ season breakfast.  Breakfast smoothies are great in the warmer months, but what to do when mornings are still a bit (very?) chilly, and we’re wanting something warm and comforting  but quick and delicious to kick-start our day?  Oh, and transportable if possible! Hmm … So I put my taste buds to...
