Private dinner party

Last night’s supper club for a local customer in Chester was a great success. I arrived at my lady’s house mid afternoon to finish cooking and set up, then served the guests their starters and mains before leaving them to it with the desserts available for them to help themselves to! I had very nice feedback when I was there, and it was a pleasure for me to provide dinner for such lovely people.

Autumn Supper Club

Busy evening spent preparing many elements of this menu, which will be served tomorrow at a supper club that I’m hosting for one of my local customers. Full of seasonal ingredients and some of my favourite flavour combinations 👩🏻‍🍳🍂🍴✨ •

Office treats

A month or so ago I began a weekly routine of bringing baked treats into work every Monday but I have ‘slacked’ in recent weeks… Tonight I’ve baked an apple cake with cinnamon and ground almonds, topped with a little demerara sugar, more cinnamon and some flaked almonds. Hopefully this helps brighten my colleagues’ Wednesday tomorrow! Now to settle down in front of the tv in time for GBBO

Ahimsa Yoga & Meze Event

I had a wonderful day practising Ahimsa yoga with Lianne @flowyogauk and the lovely people who attended our event.

We started the day with a energising welcome juice and a talk with Lianne about the elements of Ahimsa and what self care means to each of us. It was really interesting to hear more about it and also share stories within the group.

Lianne then held a flow yoga session while I finished preparing lunch, which was a pleasure to make and share with everyone who came. It was truly fantastic to see all of the new faces with a similar mindset come together and share a meal.

The dishes I served were all vegan (in the theme of ahimsa which means non harming) and as well as being kind to the planet, they were designed to be kind to our bodies too (even the desserts… because we all need a bit of sugar every now and then!) The afternoon consisted of a brilliant self massage lesson with Joanne and finally a very therapeutic and relaxing hour of yin yoga.

I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the day and it was a pleasure to meet everyone who came. Huge thanks to Lianne to organising it for us and I can’t wait to host more events like this in the future!

We are Family

A perfect summer evening spent with family and friends in my grandparents’ garden. I loved everything about it, from the food preparation over the past few days, to the setting up with my grandma and auntie Christine, to the mingling with our guests over drinks and of course seeing all of the dishes being eaten and enjoyed by my loved ones. Cheers to all of these wonderful people that I am proud to call my relatives 🥂 •
