Just thinking about how delicious was this recipe from Diana Henry ‘North African seven vegetable couscous’ that we had a few weeks back. Full of colours, it just reminds me of so many stews that we had growing up and the similarities with Andalucian cuisine.

As part of our family tradition, we’ve got our first pies of the year at Goddards. We started doing this around 3 years ago and it’s my favourite thing of Autumn. They might not look so photogenic but trust me, they are delicious.

Today’s lunch was just summer on a plate. Ripe and juicy peaches, sweet basil, avocados, amazing Italian pear tomatoes full of flavour and lovely mozzarella di bufala. You couldn’t ask for anything that tasted more like summer.

Just thinking about yesterday’s trip to the allotment to pick some berries, it was such a great treat. I’ve only discovered gooseberries about a year ago, they’re just so delicious sharp and sweet at the same time. For whoever that has not had them before, you’re missing out.

Today, lovely Niçoise salad which is also a total star for a summer day like today.

Yesterday’s lovely lunch outside, @annab made this delicious salad from Bon Appétit, we will be repeating again soon! It was just the perfect recipe for a nice hot sunny day.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, been incredible busy at work and in the personal I’ve just moved to a new home. After a week of having been here, it’s nice to have a slow Sunday, drink some delicious coffee from Carnival and have a delicious toast of tomate.

Throwback to last year visit to Teteria Almedina back in my home town of Almería. I really hope we get to enjoy another meal in this place soon.

Thinking about this delicious cinnamon bun we had this week. It pairs very well with my Elvis Reinerio Tineo from Curve Roasters without doubt will be having it again soon!
