  • 11 December 2017

This is the first of two blogs I will write with lots of Christmas/festive time/ holiday type recipes. First of all I will share a scrambled tofu recipe which will have your guests on Christmas morning or any special morning going back for seconds and even possibly thirds. Then below that recipe will be links to my all time favourite recipes to make at this time of the year. Next week I will...


A Chocolate Cake Packed with Protein (of course its gluten free too)

  • 16 October 2017

On the 5th and 6th of September the graduates of the 2016 Chef Training came back together for two days of further learning. It was such a magical two days finding out what they had all been up to in the year since they had graduated. I am so proud of their achievements and how much they have been giving to others since the course. Their love of food and cooking seems even stronger. Part of the...

No one needs to be left out this christmas.This christmas cake recipe takes in to consideration many dietary requirements. So moist and delicious.

Dairy Free Date Cake

  • 04 February 2014

Scanning through past posts I feel it is time for a sweet treat recipe. I realise I post savoury dishes as there is always some information I want to get to you. Very often with desserts or sweets there really isn't anything I can write about so this week its just a recipe. Oh except in the recipe you can use coconut sugar or rapadura sugar. Both sugars are apparently healthier than the old...

Decorating Cakes with Fruit
