Flourless Chocolate Cake – artwork by Teebs

18 Aug 14 by

This is everything you want from a chocolate cake – rich, moist and chocolatey. This cake is great because you can use almost any combination of nuts and seeds you have on hand, which will give the cake a slightly different flavour and texture each time you make it. We’ve used combination of almonds with hazelnuts, sunflower seeds and pine nuts.

Orecchiette with fresh herbs & feta

4 Aug 14 by

Orecchiette (singular, orecchietta), from orecchio (ear) + etto (small)) is a kind of home-made pasta typical of Puglia or Apulia, a region of Southern Italy. Its name comes from its shape, which resembles a small ear. In this recipe we’ve teamed little delight with all of the fresh herbs, some citrus and a sprinkling of feta cheese for the ultimate alfresco dining meal or easy midweek meal.

This recipe was inspired by a bounty from fantastic Islington fishmonger, Prawn on the Lawn. We went into buy a whole fish, and came out after a couple of rounds of Bloody Marys and oysters later with a whole fish, some picked crab and saltbush.
