As part of my birthday celebrations this year I had a house full of people and full of food, and for one of the desserts I made these honey & almond squares. A very simple recipe that packs in both flavour from the honey and texture from the almonds. I’ve just said ‘honey’ in the ingredients list but by that I mean use the best honey you have, be it orange blossom or a lovely local variety! Click here for the recipe

Herein lies one of the most beautiful, yet elegantly simple cakes to ever grace the baking world (and of course my blog ;] ). Nothing at all fancy about it, yet it has the power to impress everybody I know (except those with a thing against lemons). Cleansing aroma, sweet-piquant flavour, moist texture – it’s almost heavenly… Click here for the recipe
A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to an interview at the headquarters of London Student Magazine - for those who don’t know that means the Student Union of the University of London! It was good to be on university grounds again and talk about what I love best with people who share that passion (Helena and Eve – check out her blog here). Below is the video of the interview – I hope you enjoy!
I love lemon, in both sweet and savoury things, and believe it or not yellow is my favourite colour! After baking many batches to perfect them my flatmate Panos certified these biscuits ‘A-class’, and the recipe must be one of the simplest I’ve written. It’s basically a recipe for pastry, flavoured, cut into shapes and baked – so if you want to make a tart bake for 20 minutes in a 9” flan tin and once cool pile on some whipped cream and fresh fruit. By omitting the lemon zest the flavour variations are endless, two of my favourite being vanilla (add 2 teaspoons vanilla extract with seeds) and chocolate (replace 30g flour with cocoa powder).
