Middle Eastern Pomegranate Mince Flatbread

July 4, 2011


I always find myself drawn to recipes with flavours from the Middle East. I think it’s something to do with the clever mix of spices and sweetness in the dishes and the pungent aromas and evocative nature of the recipes. From tagines, to dips, to amazing baked vegetable dishes. The flavours pack-a-punch that just work […]

Fruity Spelt & Brazil Nut Loaf

March 24, 2011


Ever since I was little, I’ve loved a slice of fruit bread. My mum used to buy Soreen, a dense, malty fruit bread that was almost mouldable.

This recipe is especially for Mary Booth (a.k.a. Sarah’s Granny!) I have a mild obsession with the work’s of Martha Stewart…. while looking upon Amazon I realised the full extent of her written works and I’m on a mini-mission to procure her back catalogue. On reading one of my recent purchases (Martha Stewart Living, 2002 […]
