Life Kitchen harissa salmon with fennel yoghurt salad

A couple of weeks ago I went to help at a Life Kitchen cooking class. This Life Kitchen harissa salmon was one of the dishes that was part of the day and it was so good and easy that I bumped into most of the students in the supermarket over the road right afterwards as

Crispy skin salmon, kale, avocado and butternut salad

Crispy skin salmon, kale, avocado and butternut salad

I’m not a big fan of food being pretty for the sake of it and god knows the internet is full of recipes that are style over substance. Flavour and texture are much more my bag, but a funny thing happens, often when you’re layering up great flavours and textures in a dish, the prettiness

herby carrot pancakes

herby carrot pancakes with salmon and avocado

When I bit into these herby carrot pancakes on my last trip to LA, I did my usual food nerd thing of noting all the flavours and textures into my phone and photographing them from every angle so that I could recreate them for class. I’m sure I missed seeing some famous actor walk by

smoked salmon fishcakes

smoked salmon fishcakes with pea tartar dip

These easy little smoked salmon fishcakes can be made ahead. I love them to soak up drinks at parties, or to serve a quick hit of omega 3s to my kids for dinner (tip – don’t tell your kids they’re having ‘cakes for dinner’ as they may be disappointed). They’re great on top of a

salmon tacos

salmon, rainbow chard, fennel, pumpkin seed tacos

I didn’t know that taco night was a thing until I moved to California. Now I’m a convert. Mostly because having tacos for dinner means I can throw a few leftovers, something fresh and lots of healthy veggies onto the table and my boys will make their own dinner. It is a very sociable way

buckwheat tacos with grilled salmon, bacon, avocado, greens and a bunch of other good stuff

Last Friday I decided to escape my computer and treat myself to lunch at Zona Rosa, a new healthy Mexican place in town where I had a taco so delicious that I couldn’t wait to replicate at home. I am a little new to Mexican food. Until I moved to California from England four years

salmon with tomato fennel sauce and broccolini

Faced with a pretty standard fridge full of ingredients the other night, I wanted to make something seasonal, healthy and quick. This salmon with tomato fennel sauce and broccolini is what I ended up with. It was a perfect combination of virtuousness and deliciousness and was very fast too. This type of quick tomato and

salmon burger

a salmon burger and a little black dress

I love burgers but usually default to my favorite beef burger recipe when we’re grilling outside. A non-beef eating friend came over on Memorial day so I had an excuse to try out a couple of recipes so she wouldn’t feel left out. I settled on one from Gwyneth’s new book but, as always, I couldn’t

tandoori salmon salad with Indian beans, flat breads, mango chutney and yoghurt

This is just the recipe for when you are craving Indian food but want a healthier option than take out. You could easily get this on the table in half an hour, making it a great mid-week option. Any leftovers make great wraps the next day for lunch too. This dinner was meant to be

tacos and how to make taco night delicious

Until I moved to California from England, my experience of tacos was very limited and I’d never heard of taco night. Like most Brits, I had memories of those dusty boxes of crunchy Old El Paso tacos, stuffed with minced beef and topped with loads of cheddar cheese. Not good. My first taste of a proper taco in

risella

risella

I’ve eaten a version of this since I was little and cook it all the time for my boys. It makes no claims to authenticity but it is delicious and easy and that is enough for me. My Dad first made it in the 1980s on a single burner when we were camping in Spain

Knowing the secrets to building good noodle bowls will always get you out of a ‘I’m starving, what’s for dinner’ situation. The bowls can be prepped and finished off when people need to eat – perfect for houses where there are early and later eaters to cater for. I tend not to follow a recipe

Purists will note that this isn’t an authentic recipe, but the results are delicious so that’s good enough for me. This is a great lesson in balancing flavour, texture and

cheese and courgette muffins

cheese and courgette muffins

These cheese and courgette muffins are a great grab-and-go snack. And are a great way to use a glut of courgettes (zucchini) in the summer months. I often pop one of these in my boys’ lunchbox along with some veggie sticks and a flask of soup when we’re going swimming after school and will be

speedy spring frittata

speedy spring tomato, corn and basil frittata

On Monday nights I have the combination of meat-free Monday and after school football (soccer) to shape my dinner plans. I’m usually trying my best to delay a trip to the supermarket so dinner is often a mad rush to make something from what is in the fridge and freezer. This speedy spring frittata ticks all

Saltimbocca alla Romana

Saltimbocca alla Romana

This classic Italian dish Saltimbocca alla Romana translates as ‘jump in the mouth’. When you learn how to make a dish like this and master the accompanying pan sauce you will replicate it time and time again. This classic Roman dish is quick (it takes around 20 minutes in total) but is so impressive. Traditionally it

This pea pesto crostini recipe is dear to my heart as it was taught in my first ever You say Tomato class. Since then it has become a regular in my students’ houses. They love it like I do because it is colourful, healthy, child and budget friendly. Most importantly, because it is mainly make-ahead
