Spicy Tomato Chicken Thighs with Polenta Chips

A bag of cornmeal has been staring out at me from the back of the cupboard; silently mocking me for its lack of use (it was the star of my NOLA pop-up cornbread, but not used since). But no more. Polenta chips (baked, not fried) are a delicious, lighter alternative to potato, and a real…

Masala Roast Cod with Gunpowder Potatoes

I’m in India woop woop! I’m here for a friend’s wedding (#survi2019) but have been roaming around Delhi, Agra and Jaipur this past week. What a trip; I’ve barely scratched the surface and it’s an incredible country. Needless to say I’m eating lots of delicious things too šŸ¤—. Inspired by my travels, and because I’ve…

Takes 45 minutes, makes…

Chicken Andouille Sausage Gumbo

When I travelled in the US a few years ago, I fell in love with New Orleans; its intoxicating clash of cultures, music and food was something I’d never seen. Gumbo is a dish that celebrates that culinary melting pot; a deep, smoky stew that tastes so good and, well, quite unlike anything you’d have…

Sausage Ragu with Cheesy Polenta

It’s been a hectic week with work and prepping for this weekend’s pop-up fun! I’ve barely had time to think about food, so one evening this week I knew I needed something quick. A dinner of mainly store cupboard essentials turned into a winning dish that I will make again and again! When using during…
