SCD Grain-Free Blinis

Do you ever feel left out at cocktail parties?  All those delicious canapés being passed around and you can’t eat any of them?  Whether they’re breaded, deep-fried or served on a crostini or a cracker, there’s usually a grain element to most hors d’oeuvres.  No need to forego the nibbles anymore!  I have the answer! …

How to Taste Caviar with Attilus Caviar

Caviar has always been one of those things that has intimidated me a bit.  Great as a garnish on a canapé, blini or as a topping on sashimi but I’ve never really had it on its own.  The fantastic thing though is that it’s a food that is great for my diet as it’s completely…

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Grilled Figs with Goats Cheese, Crispy Prosciutto, Pecans & Honey

Figs have two main growing seasons so I’ve just found out!  The first is now, before the summer and the second is in the autumn.  This means that at the moment there is an abundance of figs in the stores.  I found some mini figs that looked so amazing and ripe that I knew I…

Prosciutto Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp

I found some amazing Jumbo Shrimp in wholefoods and they really inspired me to create a recipe around them. We were having guests tonight and I had already planned the main course, but I hadn’t got an appetiser to serve when they arrived. With my Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus fresh in my mind from a few days…
