About me


Hi, I’m Jane!

I love cooking and make nearly everything we eat from scratch. We eat very little meat now, but are not strictly vegetarian. We enjoy spicy - but not madly hot! - food, stir-fries, curries, salads, fish, pasta and rice dishes. I make all my own bread, yoghurts, chutney, dips, spreads, jam, cakes, cookies, biscuits, puddings, desserts, ice cream etc. I do use my Thermomix a lot - it increases the ease and variety of my cooking and reduces the clearing up! It's difficult for me to pick out a No 1 dish, but my partner's current favourite is the spicy Ottolenghi take on Cauliflower Cheese with a crunchy topping - it's a bit different. I do love making sourdough bread too.

Mustardy Cauliflower Cheese

Much tastier than the standard version. I often add a few chopped cashews to the topping for extra crunch and more protein.
