Irish Potato Farls Bread Recipe

Weekends are my time for experimenting with food and this morning I was looking to Northern Ireland for inspiration. Visiting Belfast last year and stopping by at St. George’s Market, there was a huge variety of potato farls on offer and I’ve been a fan ever 

Msemen maamer recipe – Moroccan stuffed flatbreads

Msemen maamer recipe – Moroccan stuffed flatbreads

Time to try a new Moroccan recipe! I adore the flavours of Moroccan cooking – harissa and ras el hanout spices, the citrus tang of preserved lemons and wonderfully aromatic sweet and savoury ingredient combinations. When this month’s Bread Bakers theme was announced as ‘peppers’, I decided 

Pissaladière Niçoise Recipe

Pissaladière Niçoise Recipe

I visited Nice and the Côte d’Azur a long time ago when I was only sixteen. Unfortunately, I didn’t experience much of the classic cuisine provençale. I would love to return and taste all the wonderful dishes: bouillabaisse, ratatouille, l’anchoïade or pissaladière Niçoise, the region’s beloved anchovy and

Manakish Za’atar Recipe: Lebanese Flatbread

Last week, an invitation to a Lebanese food themed dinner party was quickly followed by the kind request to supply suitable Lebanese flatbreads. I was more than happy to oblige by baking a batch of manakish za’atar! On the menu was a fantastic spread of delicious Lebanese mezze from

A month ago, I visited the Zillertal in Austria for a few days of skiing on the Hintertuxer Gletscher. The weather wasn’t as good as we’d hoped for, so we visited the village of Mayrhofen, and more specifically the Erlebnis-Sennerei Zillertal on the way there. It’s

Injera Recipe – Traditional Ethiopian Teff Bread

Ever since I’ve eaten the delicious Eritrean food served up in the Adulis restaurant in London, I’ve wanted to homecook some of this part of Africa’s amazing cuisine. Of particular interest of course was the soft, spongy, sour flatbread called injera. Injera has a distinctive porous 

Focaccia Recipe – Beautiful, Simple & Rustic

Focaccia Recipe – Beautiful, Simple & Rustic

Focaccia is a flattish rustic Italian bread with an open, irregular crumb structure. I love focaccia when it’s moist and chewy without being too oily, when it’s kept simple, with an emphasis on fresh herbs and olive oil flavours. Focaccia dough is fairly wet and sticky, 

Chickpea Flour Bread Baking Recipes

Chickpea Flour Bread Baking Recipes

I love experimenting with new flours and was very excited to receive a collection of specialty flours as a recent birthday present (thank you Yasmin!). One of the flours in the bundle was chickpea flour and, as a big fan of chickpea dishes, this was
