Gooseberry Galette


You’re probably bored of our galette obsession already but we’re not gunna tire of them any day soon.

We couldn’t resist making a galette with the the red and green gooseberries we bought at the market.

In fact it occurs to us that a galette is the perfect way to show case the wonderful seasonal goods you bought on impulse because you couldn’t help yourself. They are seriously good things, believe.

We’ve covered galettes in recent times so this is more of a pictures post tbh…. Continue reading “Gooseberry Galette”

Fruit Salad with Rosewater & Mint

Basically this is just a collection of all four of my all time favourite summer fruits, plus an apple.

And d’ya know what? It’s the apple that makes it. Apple and mint are best friends as we know, here it’s cut up real small and so gets pretty pally with the rose water too and just brings everything together as one. The fruits are left to steep in rosewater which amplifies their sweetness.

3 Ways with Elderflowers

Number 1. Elderflower Fritters

We pretty much mainline elderflower presse round here and can’t tell you the satisfaction we feel that very soon we will have our own cordial which cost us virtually nothing and created a whole lotta fun in the making. It’s all the way up to 11.

But these treasures are where it’s at. It’s these delightful crispy uniquely sweet things that I left my bed for on a wet stormy sunday morning (in bloody June), knowing I’d be eating these later.

Y’know how you can taste the river in trout and the sea in oysters, well you can taste the woodland in elderflower fritters. Continue reading “3 Ways with Elderflowers”

Picking Elderflowers

We went elderflower picking yesterday. In zone 2 north London, a short walk from Charlie’s. Yep we did.

As the season for these beautiful edible flowers is short (end May to early June), we hoped we weren’t too late. We weren’t at all, we hit the jackpot.

Reckon folks, Londoners anyway, have got a few days yet to get out there and get yee some. S’up. We’ll be back in the week with recipes for this lot.

When nature’s bounty is plentiful (and only then)….


Chia Pudding


We bought a box of chia seeds several years ago, pre-climate kind eating days, and it sat forgotten in the cupboard for a long while. Until one day, about 1BCKE (before climate kind eating), we opened the box up and thought someone was having a giraffe. Back into cupboard’s shadiest corners they went.

Then one climate kind day this October gone, we discovered what all the fuss was about. These teeny tiny seeds can transform into something quite remarkable – dessert! A completely vegan mega health dessert, without even trying.  Continue reading “Chia Pudding”
