I’ve been living by the sea for as long as I can remember, (with a stint ‘in land’ growing produce) met the man of my dreams in a little Greek fishing village and would often be found ‘hanging out’ with the local fishmonger as a child. So, it should come as no surprise to me that my daughters’ favourite foods so far in her one year of life are fish and greens. For her we still keep it quite simple; roasted or baked en papillote to seal in the flavour; but for us big kids, we like a little bit...
In all honesty, it doesn’t matter what The Petite Produce Fairies put in my box; I’m always delighted by the variety and the care that has gone into the compilation. Occasionally the contents favour a certain cuisine, which makes planning even easier. This week with all the greens, ginger, lime and coriander I can’t help but lean towards a few Asian style dishes.

This Thai inspired ‘curry in a hurry’ is my go to pick me up meal. The broth or curry sauce will lend itself to all vegetables so you can keep reinventing it to suit you. This week, Romanesco broccoli, carrots and squeaky beans are your companions. We...
This 3 step recipe has a lean towards Tex Mex and has summer written all over it! I really enjoy the combination of the sweet with the citrus and heat from the chilli in this dish.
