Black Sesame Brownies with Miso Caramel

Black Sesame Brownies with Miso Caramel

This is the next evolutionary step towards happiness.     Black Sesame Brownies & Miso Caramel I am astonished at the volume of love this recipe can yield, again and again. It does so at a vertiginous rate.   For the brownie bit: 1 block creamed coconut (200g) 230g dark chocolate 3 tablespoons black sesame […]

Chocolate Chip & Chai Muffins

Chocolate Chip & Chai Muffins

Chocolate has a calling like a ultrasonic dog whistle. Only audible to females, of course. Ignoring these soundwave emissions is, in my experience, damaging. The longer the ear-splitting sonar pulse, the sharper the fangs. That’s why I came up with this vegan muffin recipe. They are criminally healthy, and taste lordly.     Check out […]

That Beetroot Salad

That Beetroot Salad

Beetroot has long filled the cells of mankind with mega antioxidants, and enough iron to make Popeye quake. Beetroot puts the super into superfood (and sometimes the hell into healthy, if not cooked adequately). Sometimes I wish Vanilla Ice had included them in his big hit. This earthy vegetable is a real friend to the […]

Kickass Cookies & 2016 Saveur Award Nomination

I am in the market for some telepathic highfives today. Would you like one? (See? Feel it? That was meee!) I’m asking you, my dear readers, for nominations. There’s a very cool blog award called Saveur in the US. It is The Snazz. The honky tonk of all international food blog awards. I would love […]

Skin Food

Skin Food

Given that our body absorbs 60% of what we put on our skin, I think my skincare has inadvertently become part of my diet. And yours has too. *silent gaping* Take a look into your bathroom cupboard. Grab your favourite product, and Google the ingredient list. Go on! Freaked out? Let’s change that. I’m here […]

Peaches & Rhubarb with buckwheat cream

Peaches & Rhubarb with buckwheat cream

This is good enough to straddle. Sweet, succulent spoonfuls of rhubarb happily collapsing from the heat of the oven, and cavorting with a sticky orange and star anise nectar. We serve it with buckwheat cream which probably sounds like a wank too far, so just swap it out for cold clouds of Greek yoghurt. Criminally […]

Paleo Flapjacks

Paleo Flapjacks

Nuts are superheroes, with an arsenal of fancy ninja moves. Some of the largest health studies in history – the Adventist Study, the Iowa Women’s Health Study, the Nurses’ Health Study, and the Physicians’ Health Study – have consistently shown that snacking on raw nuts can lead to a 50% reduction in heart disease. Research […]

Make sure your pipes are on speaking terms with you. Cranking up the fibre in your diet will have you shaking your […]

Celeriac and white bean puree

Celeriac and white bean puree

Not so pretty, these celeriac things. They look like a cross between the butt of a matted yak, and a swede with dermatitis. But damn, are they delicious. Like Stephen Fry, you’ll find treasure beneath that exterior. There is a smooth understated elegance to a celeriac. And a faint nutty aroma. Indeed the celeriac is […]
