Cherry & Lemon Curd Tray Bake

June 14, 2011


I do love cherries! A quick scan back over the recipes on Parlour & Pantry brings back happy memories of Cherry & Ricotta Muffins and the decadent White Chocolate and Cherry Crunch Trifle. I recently chanced upon a greengrocer offering them at an absolute steal and bought a brown paper bag, greedily stuffed to the brim […]

Fabulous Fish Tagine with Lemon & Mint

June 9, 2011


My very darling friend Kaye recently bought me back two gorgeous tagines from Morocco, chancing both the luggage carriers and the discount airlines weight policy to get them to me in one piece. Along with this lovely present came a brilliant book “Tagines and Couscous”, bursting with flavoursome dishes for me to try. There are […]

Lemon & Rosemary Biscotti

June 5, 2011


I can eat oodles and oodles of biscotti! Somewhere in my head I have convinced myself that because they don’t contain butter they are not so naughty and therefore I can justifiably eat lots of them! For a long time I bought the ready-made biscotti that popped up in the supermarkets’ continental biscuits section a […]

Rhubarb & Orange Fool

June 1, 2011

Chocolate, Banana and Almond Lollies

May 28, 2011


A silly little post this one really, but quite fun and sometimes kitchen creations should be just that! Chocolate, banana and nuts are such a good match. When I was younger, bananas were wrapped in foil, stuffed with squares of chocolate and baked on the barbecue until hot and oozy – heaven! These little lollies are […]

Rhubarb & Goats Cheese Salad

May 24, 2011


A lovely friend recently gifted me with a bunch of homegrown rhubarb. What a treat! Flowers are lovely, but a bunch of anything homegrown will fill my heart with happiness. It felt inappropriate to give such a lovely gift my usual treatment for rhubarb, which generally finds itself served as a compote with yoghurt or a crumble […]

Chocolate and Cherry Brownies (butter & flour free!)

May 21, 2011


The chocolate brownie was created to torment sweet-toothed individuals everywhere! The absolute deliciousness of biting through a slightly crunchy top, to a dense, moist and moreish chocolate centre is enough to weaken the willpower of even the strongest! When served warm drizzled with cream or cold, cold ice cream the chocolate brownie reaches what I can only imagine are […]
