Strawberry Rhubarb Lattice Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Lattice Pie // Victoria Sponge Pease Pudding

If I could rename the combination of sweet strawberry and rhubarb wrapped in pie crust, I would pick sunshine pie.

Roasted Celeriac Soup with Parsnip Crisps

A few months ago, I headed off to the SECC in Glasgow, notepad in my hand and finger on the voice recorder app on my phone, ready to act like the perfect food journalist at the Good Food Show. As I was handed over the plastic press pass that screamed I was a fully fledged…
