As soon as the first chestnuts start appearing in the supermarket I realise Christmas is almost upon us, it’s funny how these amazing tree nuts spark thoughts of celebration and sitting by an open fire. As the song suggests they just go hand in hand I guess!

Here in Umbria, I often go out walking with my husband in t...

This week I have been busy in my kitchen making a delicious low sugar spiced fig jam, great with cheese and nuts or used as a filling for rustic gluten free galettes. This morning I again awoke with figs on my mind and my immediate thought was its time to m...

The first thing you should know about Chilli Con Carne is that it not Mexican, but American. It is a Texan dish whose early recorded origins seem to stem from a food market in San Antonio in the early 1880s.
