Pear and Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding

Finding good quality, seasonal and fresh vegetables and fruits in London is not impossible, but is also not easy. Yes there are farmers markets and local delis, but 9 times out of 10 I’d be doing my food shopping from a big supermarket chain where tproduce is often tasteless

With this in mind, it was a pleasure to receive a beautiful veggie box from WholeGood last week!

Wholegood-Veggie-Box-1 Wholegood-Veg-Box-Ocado-1Wholegood-Veg-Box-Ocado-2

WholeGood is an online supplier of fresh and organic fruit and vegetables who delivers delivers in UK via Ocado.

We are an organic fruit and vegetable wholesaler delivering to some of the UK’s finest retailers and caterers (and now to your doorstep!). All our produce is fresh, seasonal and delicious – just as it should be.

Molasses Oatmeal Bread with Almond Butter & Strawberries

Molasses Bread is one of the many recipes featured on The Recipe Wheel, an ingenious cookbook by Rosie Ramsden which "explores recipe ideas visually". Each of the ten chapters has its own recipe wheel; at the centre of each wheel lies a basic recipe and technique. It can be bread, soup, risotto, sponge cake, custard, etc. From these cores stem new, more complex recipe ideas like Barley risotto with chestnut and savoy, three-tier vanilla raspberry cake or rhubarb treacle creme brûlée.

I was approached by the publishers at Random House to take part to their bloggers' Recipe Wheel challenge and use one of the core ingredients listed in the book (bread) in an inventive way.

From the cookbook I chose the Molasses Bread recipe, a 'no frills' bread that makes deliciously sweet and dense slices of toast.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Basil Brown Butter & Sea Salt

I'm pretty sure this is the longest title I've ever used for a recipe! I found this amazing recipe on Top With Cinnamon blog and I made a double batch of the cookies on Saturday. They went down a storm at my friends' barbecue party and I have enough left at home to keep me going for the rest of the week! :)

Top With Cinnamon is a beautiful baking blog by 18 year old Londoner Izy. I started following this food blogger on Instagram a year ago, but only recently I discovered how young she was. I couldn't believe it at first, and I mean this as a compliment, because her baking and photography skills are so advanced that I just assumed she had many years of experience behind her!

Unsurprisingly, Izy won the Best Baking & Desserts Blog award at the Saveur Food Blog Awards 2014, an incredible… Continue reading →
