This refreshing and tangy watermelon salad is perfect for picnics. It’s super easy and can be assembled before or you can put it together al fresco. Don’t be put off from marrying sweet juicy melon with salty feta and tangy pickled onion, I promise it utterly works!
Whilst making this veggie paella I realised how times have changed, how I savour long lunches with my daughters, and how this dish with it sweet smoky paprika aroma, the sharpness of the fresh lemon juice and the pungent garlic was enough to transport me back

This ultimately comforting pud is the perfect Easter treat, especially if you’ve been left with a surfeit of Hot Cross Buns! Super easy and it makes a really impressive centrepiece dessert. The addition of Kahlua and brandy is super naughty but really makes this bread-and-butter pudding extra special!
We all have those recipes that are like jewels, much coveted and ultimately prized – they become this from being so good you can’t resist them, and because you end up making them time and time again. Hence, I came up with the name of this Carrot Cake because it is so damned moreish that I may have well called it Crack Carrot Cake! Such was its reputation I made it day in and day out for our first café, and requests for the recipe used to come thick and fast from its loyal following.
This Easter cocktail is literally a chocoholics dream! An Easter Egg filled to the brim with a boozy delicious concoction. It’s based on the classic frozen Mudslide cocktail, and the joy is once you’ve polished off your cocktail, you can eat the egg too! If you have little ones, just fill their eggs with a chocolate ice cream milkshake.

I think fishcakes make the perfect light lunch. I’m particularly fond of them for a special brunch and like to add a boiled egg. At Gastrono-me for a little sensory fun we used to serve our fishcakes under a glass cloche filled with hickory smoke, when the dome was lifted the customer had a delicious waft of woody smoke before digging in!
