Romanis Wrap

It might seem a little ridiculous to post a recipe for a sandwich, however, when I was introduced to this by a friend I was surprised at how much I loved it. The next day I couldn’t stop craving the different textures and flavour, so I went to grab the ingredients in time for lunch….

Soba Noodles with Sesame Seeds

Every once in a while, I find a recipe which I find I am making again, and again. I am easily bored with food, so this is quite unusual for me. On the salad front, I am continuously making the taco salad recipe – the lime vinaigrette is so light and refreshing and the tortilla…

Orange Vinaigrette

For a short time during my London years, I stayed with a friend in Hertfordshire. It was a beautiful old farm which had been converted into a few homes, centred around a courtyard.

My Abuelos had some horticultural land nearby Valencia and they would grow their own asparagus,…

Wild Rice Salad with Pecans and Sultanas

My mother used to make this salad when I was much younger, but it took many years for me to truly appreciate it. I love the texture of the split wild rice, which sadly has become too expensive to make this often, although it also works well mixed with brown rice, and it is best…
