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

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus has to be one of the easiest (yet most popular with guests) appetisers I have ever made.  It takes 5 mins to prep, has only 3 ingredients and just needs to bake in the oven for 15-20mins.  For canapés I estimate around 3 per person but they’re definitely popular so make sure…

Roasted Peach, Feta & Pistachio Salad with a Honey & Mustard Dressing

This weekend we had escaped out of London to a beautiful country house about an hour’s drive away.  We were staying with another 4 couples (all friends of Dan’s from University) and a couple of kiddies and had planned to chill out and spend a bit of time together.  Catching up, playing board games, eating…

Pan Fried Cod with Tomato Chorizo Cassoulet

This evening I was in the mood for something light yet tasty and filling.  When feeling this way I usually turn to pulses.  Beans and lentils really pack a protein punch and seem to keep me feeling full for much longer than anything else.  Haricot (Navy) Beans are allowed on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet that I…

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…

Hemsley And Hemsley Cafe, Selfridges, London

I can always count on my mum to want to visit a healthy restaurant with me.  We like the same kind of food and eat the same kind of diet (grain, gluten and refined sugar-free – amongst other things) so when I spent a day with her recently I suggested that we went to the…
