Burnt eggplant with garlic and lemon

Sometimes you just need a little something extra to serve with a meal, and this cracking eggplant dish is one of my favourites (yes, it’s another Ottolenghi recipe, and yes, I AM obsessed). It’s not blended with tahini so has a slightly different flavour profile […]

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Biscuits

Peanut butter and chocolate are the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler of the baking world: brilliant on their own; an stoppable force of delicious genius once combined. In this recipe, velvety chunks of milk chocolate and a chewy-almost-cakey peanut butter crumb combine to form what […]
