Rumours of my blogging death are unsubstantiated...
Did you think I had died and been roasted, with apples in my mouth, over fruit wood, to feed many hungry school children? No! It is but a rumour! I have simply been in a writer's freeze for months. Not just here, but also on my Tumblr site , and my lovely n...

Here it is... as requested by many, many people.   The Josordoni Claudia Roden Orange  x Tarta Santiago F1 hybrid cross cake as presented to, and approved by, Sr Jose Pizarro at Thane Prince's inimitable Cook Book Club. How's that for a plaudit, eh?  Now, a...

A Chicken and Avocado warm salad - A Bird in the Hand

More lamb.. are you a breast or a leg person?
