Lunchbox – Christmas miracle sprouts, with a maple and tahini dressing

You’re sat at the Christmas table, family shouting at each other across the turkey, kids tucking in despite being told they should wait, and drinks toppling over as everyone reaches for the bread sauce.

Lunchbox – griddled aubergine and red pepper sourdough sarnie

A sarnie for lunch. Revolutionary I know! We’re all very busy people doing very important grown-up things and have little time for the ‘boring’ things in life, like taking the bins out, doing the washing up, and being sensible.

Lunchbox – life changing leek and potato salad

Today is not your average day. Oh no! Today is the day a potato changed lives.   Before we get to the story, let’s first take a moment to appreciate the humble spud. A sturdy and versatile staple, these bad boys can be baked, boiled, roasted, röstied, smashed, mashed, hassle-backed, or dauphinoised; not to mention…

Brunch at Bühler and Co – a.k.a veggie heaven

Brunch.   AM I RIGHT!?   Brunch is one of my favourite things to do EVER. D’you wanna know why..? a) its name ACTUALLY allows for a meal the size of two meals and b) it’s almost always shared with friends.   Food and friends is, to me, sheer, unadulterated joy. Especially when that food…
