Recipe Sharing: Aubergine Ricotta Roll-Ups

After several successful dinners since I’ve been back in Oxford, and after a positive reaction to a picture of one of those dishes by my friends and family — I’ve decided to once again start sharing my recipes and hopefully get back into blogging regularly.  The recipe for this week is for aubergine slices, stuffed with…

Recipe Sharing: Minced Lobster / Crawfish

There are quite a few recipes pending completion in my draft list and I thought now was a perfect time to share one of them with you: After being back home in the Bahamas from January to the beginning of April 2014, one thing is for certain — there is a limited amount you can buy on Green…

Recipe Sharing: Creamy Polenta with Spring Veggies

I’m sharing with you by far the easiest savory meal that I find to be particularly comforting. This is a recipe that I thank my Mum for teaching me to make and in doing so, provided a tried and tested favorite that will suit my tiny budget in London and banished the fear of cooking ‘grits’.  Creamy Polenta with…

Highlights of: ‘Devour! The Beach’ Food & Wine Festival

With the long-winded agro of traveling back to the UK after three months at home in the Bahamas, I have finally gotten the chance to share with you my highlights of the first ‘Devour! The Beach’ food and wine festival that took place the end of March on Green Turtle Cay. ‘Devour! The Beach’ is the…

Recipe Sharing: Bahamian Coconut ‘Trifle’ Cake

Because I wanted to start getting some photographs for ‘Potcake’, I’ve taken time away from job hunting and freelancing to do what I love – photographing interesting people in their kitchens. You’ll notice that my portfolio consists of several features about chefs. When I wrote my pitch for my Bahamian cookbook, ‘Potcake,’ I knew that…

Recipe Sharing: Traybaked Fish Curry

This recipe comes from Jamie Oliver; his Keralan Fish Curry was aired in the UK in late December last year on Jamie’s Festive Feast as an ideal NYE dinner party show stopper and it got me really excited to try it out on a smaller scale. Its bright colours and fresh ingredients changed my previous opinion…

Cooking With: The Green Turtle Club

Head Chef Mike Howell allowed me to photograph him and his team last night in a kitchen that brought back so many memories. Both of my parents were managers at The Green Turtle Club so I spent most of my childhood there and it was a pleasure being back.   – Lobster Ravioli –  – Shrimp…

Nan’s ‘Best Ever’ Brownies

Hope 2014 has started off well for all of you. It may not start off at its healthiest by trying this recipe but you’ll be able to cling on to some post-Christmas indulgence which I personally am quite happy to do while the rain keeps bucketing down here in Wales! These are referred to as…

With Christmas Comes: Cake

Between graduating, Christmas and watching too much Master Chef, I’ve been putting a lot of time into the kitchen and trying out new (and old) recipes. What kicked it all off was when I made Nigella’s Chocolate Cloud Cake for a friend’s birthday. It was a recipe I’d been wanting to try for years but…

Mamma Mia!: Nan’s ‘Italian’ Crumble

As I can’t seem to shut up about, I recently visited Italy…but because I have memories of my Nan always having a tin of a biscotti to enjoy with her coffee, I thought the perfect birthday gift for her would be just that.  Could only laugh when she opened the tin to find they weren’t…
