Polish Chicken Noodle Soup ( ROSÓŁ)

Rosół  is a nourishing Polish soup that was regularly made by my mum when I was growing up.  It was the first line of defence if one of our family members got sick, but most of the time she made it because it was so delicious and made us feel comforted and warm when the weather was a little colder outside.  Mum served hers with fine home made noodles, but I like to change it around a little and use vegetable spaghetti.  I’ve made my soup using skinless organic chicken... Read More

Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Here is a delicious gluten free bread recipe. What I love about it is that it’s really easy to make.  Most pumpkin breads use smashed cooked pumpkin, but I decided to have a go at using grated raw pumpkin to save a little time.

Polish Sauerkraut

I was brought up on sauerkraut.  My Great Polish Aunt was a specialist sauerkraut maker and I remember us as kids always having it with our meals. The sour flavour comes from the process of lacto-fermentation, similar to the pickling of cucumbers. But instead of soaking the cabbage in a vinegary brine solution, sauerkraut preparation requires only salt and the lactic acid bacteria already present on raw cabbage. Sauerkraut produces amazing amounts of lactobacilli, a healthy... Read More

Classic Tomato Soup

This is a beautiful classic tomato soup that has been a part of my cooking repertoire for many years. When I make soups in my home, I go for simplicity and freshness, so that I can immerse my senses in the unadulterated flavour of the ingredients.

Adding 1 red apple adds a wonderful hint of sweetness and a generous grind... Read More

Pumpkin Pie With Macadamia + Coconut Shortcrust

Well this purely delicious pumpkin pie has to be one of my favourite inventions yet !  What I love about it is the simplicity of the macadamia nut crust and how it marries effortlessly with coconut and vanilla bean.
