Most excited that I’m going to be baking up a storm for The Cake & Bake Show in October. Just a couple of months now, and I’m finalising our menu and getting all the paperwork sorted. Going to block a weekend or two to do some practice bakes before the real thing too!
The Cake & Bake Show takes place 7th-9th October 2016 at ExCel in London. We’re going to be at stand M21 with our Indian-inspired savoury bakes. Think baked samosas, stuffed naan rolls, tarts, and spiced shortbread! Our bakes are all free from nuts and apart from the tarts, they’re all free from eggs and cheese too.
So whether you’re feeling peckish, or looking for a bite for lunch, or wanting to carry back home with you, pop around to us to say hello
The event promises to be busy and exciting, and I can’t wait. There are discounted tickets available for £10. Use code EXHIB at checkout and go on and block your calendars.
Hope to see you there!
We’ve finally got sunshine on our shoulders and it is making me happy! Summer is all about long walks, picnics, camping, and cooking outdoors. It’s also about a houseful of grass and mud from the garden, thanks to an overzealous and very demonstrative dog! But we’re not going to get distracted by that right now. Continue reading
Summer is officially here. Who cares if it’s been raining non-stop for the last 24 hours. We’ve bought (and finished) our first watermelon of the season. So large, I had to stand on tippy toes to get a picture of it! Continue reading
Spicy fried vegetables
When I plan an Indian menu, I try and do a mix of curry or dal, a side with a thickish sauce, and a dry side. That way, there’s something you can eat with rice and chapatti both, without it becoming too wet a meal or too dry. Essentially aiming for a balance of textures on the plate! My uncle was visiting us for lunch today and I knew I wanted to make a khatti meethi dal and palak paneer, but wasn’t feeling very inspired about the dry side dish. I had cauliflower stuck in my head, but didn’t want to make a boring old gobhi aloo or gobhi mattar. I thought I’d begin by frying some florets and see where that would take me. Turned out to be a really good place Here’s my spicy fried vegetables recipe. I hope you enjoy it! Continue reading
Cheese and corn toast
You must know by now that I really love a toast with toppings. I’ve shared my all-in-one grilled toast recipe a few months ago, and also my avocado toast recipe and sesame prawn toast recipe. This cheese corn toast is another favourite. And like the ones before, it’s quick, simple, and tasty. Continue reading
