Being A Recipe Busy Body!

Imagine being a 9 year old little girl telling your grandmother, who had flown over from Iran and was stood cooking in your aunts kitchen ‘you are doing that wrong!’…..

Jelleye Anar – Pomegranate Jelly Recipe

The very first thing I learnt to ‘cook’ in the kitchen was jelly! Out of a packet, those little blocks of hard, chewy, way too sweet jelly that you had to dissolve in boiling water with a fork and would leave a sticky sugary residue on your teeth for hours after eating….

Persian Mille Feuille Recipe – A cross between Baklava and Mille Feuille

A few years ago my husband made me a beautiful Persian Love Cake for my birthday. It was a delicate cardamom chiffon sponge with a delicious fresh cream filling flavoured with rose water with candied rose petals and pistachios. It was incredible.  I am unashamed to say that I ate pretty much the entire cake, bar one slice that he had, and I loved every mouthful.

My Little Persian Kitchen is back at Alderford Lake this summer

Hello lovelies! Well….what a fantastic first event that was! The feedback from my guests far exceeded my expectations and my team & I had a lot of fun on the night! All in all a fab experience and one that I can’t wait to do all over again!….. So…… we are back at Alderford Lake this Summer for one night only:

Saturday 11th August!
It will be my second  ‘Supper Club’ and I have a new summery menu that I am so excited to share with you all 🙂

The Supper Club

You can have a Supper Club anywhere you like. A home restaurant, a pop up restaurant, some people even have them in their garden sheds! These are the most interesting as they really appeal to the hardened foodie.

A Lost Week Away

Having been together for just over a year, my then boyfriend and I travelled to Rome for my 30th birthday. It was such a cool experience and one that always makes me smile when I think about it. We had very little money and were just starting out in our relationship together. This was a lovely surprise birthday trip.
