Today let me introduce you to the tarte fine, a thinner and delicate version of the traditional French fruit tart. 5 minutes in the kitchen and 20 minutes in the oven and you’ll be ready to enjoy a sweet and delicate tart “fine”.

What is Black Salsify - scorzonera - scorsonère

What is Black Salsify - scorzonera - scorsonère

What is Black salsify? Well black salsify really called scorzonera (scorsonère in French). The two root vegetables are alike in taste and nature, but look different. Both are available from autumn to the beginning of spring. Both can be eaten raw or cooked and both must be peeled. The taste of both is a blend of light artichoke, sweede and asparag
Leek vinaigrette - Poireaux vinaigrette

Leek vinaigrette - Poireaux vinaigrette

Leek Vinaigrette recipe is a classic bistro fare that I particularly enjoy. The fresh almost sweet and melt in the mouth white part and the more flavourful light green dressed in vinaigrette is a real mouth pleaser. Leek is such an underrated veggie.

Serve it warm sliced not too thick and piled up like pancakes with syrup, in thick portions with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, cooled down with tea or coffee, browned in butter like a french toast for serving with jam and heavy cream… The Bodding is not French, to tell
Nutella Crumb Cake

Nutella Crumb Cake

If you like Nutella you’ll like my Nutella crumb loaf… Something I made up for my eldest’s birthday as my oven had given up on us the day before! Instead of her favourite baked banana/chocolate cake she settled for a crumb cake… “But with Nutella please”. Well I don’t often buy chocolate spread but how could I say no… I improvised b
Fresh & Smoked salmon tartare & mustard ice cream

Fresh & Smoked salmon tartare & mustard ice cream

This recipe is for a delicate starter dish. A fresh & smoked salmon tartare topped by a creamy savoury ice cream with a little kick to it. The hidden jewel in that recipe is, time… As you take your time to enjoy it the ice cream will slowly melt into a velvety sauce that will dress the fish beautifully. As it warms up it will cover the tartare an
