The Pudding Bar Guest Feature by Alex McMeekin: Soho’s latest summer pop-up is a bar with a difference, and the accent on sugar that has not given itself up to merely be food for yeast, but kept in its simpler state in the form of Pudding! I pitched up at The Pudding Bar on time […]

Summer Dessert Brandied Banana Ice-Cream Baskets


Brandied Banana Ice-Cream Baskets: For me summer is the time of year when, instead of cooking too much, I concentrate on dishes that are simple, use a very few good ingredients and can be put together in minutes. The last thing I want to do when the sun is shining is to spend time stirring […]

Healthy Portobello Mushroom Burger: OK, I fibbed just a bit.  You probably CAN’T quite have your burger like this on a 5:2 diet fast day.  The bread roll adds a wopping 150 calories.  But, it’s just as delicious (though not quite as photogenic) without the bread, or with just the base, like a burger open […]
