18th July 2016By Leave a Comment

Some of you might well be aware by now that I collaborated with Cuisinart a few months ago to celebrate the release of their new 2 in 1 Grill and Sandwich Maker and it sounds like you guys loved it.

Garlic, olive oil and chilli spelt spaghetti

12th June 2015By Leave a Comment

This pasta dish is sinfully easy. It swiftly became one of my favourite dishes in Italy because of its simplicity and punchy flavours.
