Roast partridge with red wine and sticky onions.

Despite a dalliance with fussiness in my childhood (apparently in 1988 I spent the year only eating edam cheese and green grapes), I take great pride in the fact that I am literally the world’s least picky eater.

I am, however, still concerned about what I put in my mouth and the effect it has on my mind and body. Even more so now I have two young kids. I want… Continue reading Sweet potato latkes, poached egg and tahini yogurt
