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

Roasting – the best cooking method!

I’m a bit obsessed with roasting everything I can at the moment! I think it’s just the best way to get maximum flavour into each ingredient 👌🏼

Tonight’s dinner is an all in one roasted traybake of sausages, butternut squash, kale, red onion and peas, seasoned with salt, pepper, oregano and parsley and topped with a harissa & garlic yoghurt dressing.

Autumnal salad

A warm Feta & Butternut Squash Salad with Roasted Tenderstem Broccoli, Red Onion, Peppers, Tomatoes & Olives, topped with Toasted Chilli Seeds, Fresh Mint and a Pomegranate Dressing. Just what was needed after a busy weekend and a cold Autumn Monday.
