Breakfast of champions @ellendenfarmcamping this morning 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽. @thesnapery and I arrived in a very rainy Whitstable yesterday. We bought the freshest bass from the harbour to cook over the fire pit, but the weather had other plans for us. ☔️ 😢 Rather than let it go to waste (you know I can’t have that!) we saved our bass for breakfast - breakfast bass! 🎣 See vid at the end for a full display of this glorious camping spot (a true conservation site, being allowed to re-grow as natural meadow and encourage all sorts of wildlife) and our produce line up - bread from @grainandhearth , tomatoes, lemon and spring onion from Staines grocers, chorizo from @jimsbutchers and eggs from @ellendenfarmcamping ! The unforgettable morning more than made up for the damp night before 🤦‍♀️💁‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . #breakfastbass #birthdaybass #whitstable #outdoorcooking #locallygrown #ellendenfarm #faversham #char #cooking #nature #kent #local #slowliving #camping #breakfast #eater #conservation #foodphotography #seasalter #gardenofengland #getoutside #sustainableliving #eatlocal
An afternoon well spent making the most chickeny (it’s a word, why is there a dotted red line underneath it as I type?!) chicken salad. I had some leftover walnut, rocket and wild garlic pesto so jointed a chicken and roasted the pieces in pesto for 40 mins until the cheese caramelised into a sticky mess (obviously you could use regular pesto, I don’t expect wild garlic pesto to be lying around). Then I cooked up some grains (oats, spelt, rice), mixed them with steamed spring greens and other interesting leaves. Coated it all with a surprising (mustard and ginger does work!) dressing consisting of equal parts grated garlic (1 clove) and ginger, tbsp whole grain mustard, 1tsp honey, juice of ½ lemon, pinch of Malden and 60ml chicken juices/fat. Eaten with pickled chillies and various food books that have taken me farrr too long to get round to reading. Hope everyone’s Sunday’s were as slow and leisurely 😌😌😌 . . . . . . . . . . . #sundaynightsupper #atmytable #chickensalad #freerange #foodwriting #slowcooking #consciousliving #foodstagram #springful #recipe #pickles #homemade #slowliving #organic #sustainable #eat #foodphotography #cooking #eater #intentionalliving
An impressive charity shop find yesterday (charity shops are great for food books). Who would have donated such a gem?! Only this book would have pages with ‘blackbird, black pudding and bladder’ and ‘fatty acid and feet & trotters’ next to each other. Really indulging my inner 🤓 I just love thinking about how this was all put together and the discussions that went on when deciding which entries would make the final cut. Perhaps there were arguments over sea-snails, niche pastries and rare turnip varieties - we will never know and I love that. There hasn’t been a food dictionary in a while (unless I’m mistaken) - book #2 maybe? One for the nerds after my own heart? . . . . . . . #foodwriting #larousse #gastronomique #blackbird #trotter #knowledgeispower #encyclopedia #foodbook #prueleith #allthefood #recipes #charityshopfinds #bookideas #butfirstcoffee #somebodystopme #cookbook #hoarder
Best breakfast for two with @oliviamichiko - soft avo and goat cheese on rye crackers with crunchy radishes and pickles, quick-fried turnip tops and a perfect soft-boiled egg. A breakfast of champions preparing us to pound the streets and take over the city (or feel like you will at least). . . . . . . #breakfastofchampions #atmytable #nycflashback #eater #commensality #butfirstcoffee #nycfood #foodiesofinstagram #breakfastideas #avo #eatwithfriends #foodphotography #greenjuice #pickles
Mum and I had a super time cooking Iranian food with @migratefuluk on Monday night. Migrateful run cooking classes taught by refugees who share how to cook dishes of their homeland, Mum chose this class since it is run by a Mum and daughter team like us 🥰🥰🥰. We made: lamb meatballs on lentil rice topped with fried onions, raisins and walnuts, an incredible aubergine dip topped with whey, garlic, walnuts and fried mint, an okra dish, refreshing yogurt dish and a salad to top it all off. Thanks Elahe and Parastoo for a great evening, thanks to Anne for facilitating and @oneandallcafe for hosting us! What a great initiative!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 . . . . . . . #eattheworld #atmytable #migrateful #charity #food #cooking #Iran #refugeeswelcome #peckham #socialenterprise #meatballs #presentideas #cookingclass #womeninfood #eater #foodphotography #aubergine #foodie #londonfood
🥓Bacon, blueberry breakfast bites 🥐.These sticky little treats are a sure fire way to start the day, crunchy on the outside, fluffy in the middle and the right sweet/salty/fat ratio 💪🏽 I chose this recipe as I’m away with all the family and needed an easy breakfast recipe for 17 hungry grown ups and toddlers. You could easily rustle this one up for a big group or scale it down for more casual breakfasts 🥄. Here’s the recipe (makes enough for 12 plus a extra to tray bake for veggies). The night before, cut up 6 big old croissants into roughly inch square pieces and put in a big bowl. In another big bowl, put 200g coconut sugar (or regular tbh), 6 medium eggs, 450g cream cheese, 1 pint milk, 1 heaped tsp mixed spice, 1 tbsp blueberry fruit powder (optional). Blend the egg mix and add to the croissants with 200g blueberries. Stir well and leave in the fridge over night. The next morning, heat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tins with a rasher of smoked, streaky bacon per groove and then scoop a generous tbsp of the mix into the muffin tin. Butter a separate tray and spread out the remaining mix. Bake the tray bake for 30-40 mins and the bacon ones for 20-30 until all are super golden. Sprinkle with more blueberry powder and icing sugar and serve piping hot. Enjoy! . . . . . . . . . #breakfastideas #atmytable #easyrecipe #croissantpuff #eater #blueberry #cooking #recipe #foodwriting #recipetesting #familystyle #bacon #breakfasting #creatingrecipes #writerlife #saltfatacidheat #familycooking #overnight #foodphotography
Thanks @florafaunastudios 😘. @beardfoundation awards tonight - crossing every finger and toe. Good luck @cabritogoatmeat (and @thesnapery and @butterculture obvs, wishing I could be there with you guys - god speed 💪🏽) . . . . #foodwriting #cookbook #awards #jamesbeard
👑 Jackson Heights Queen’s tour of Queens 👑 hard to believe it was only last weekend I was guided round this tasty treat metropolis. All within a few streets of each other, Mexican, Nepalese, Pakistani (to name a few) cultures are slicing, marinating, frying and steaming tantalising morsels. Places and dishes I would definitely recommend you seek out: pork belly arepas with passion fruit milk drink (sounds dubious, isn’t) from @arepalady , shrimp cocktail from La Esquina del Camarón Mexicano and Momos from Lhasa Fast Foods. We also had tiny little spicy rolled cold noodles, I don’t know what they were called but they blew our heads off and had us coming back for more. For the perfect afternoon, float from place to place picking up hot, spicy dishes to share with friends interspersed with cold, refreshing beers and other, more soothing beverages to put out the flames. 🔥 #recommendation4 ,5&6 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #nycfood #foodiefinds #arepas #jacksonheights #shrimpcocktail #foodie #foodexplorer #nyc #eater #queens #brooklyn #momo #foodheaven #eattheworld #foodphotography #multicuisine #tastespotting #writerlife #womeninfood #lhasafastfood #spiritoftheshrimp

Hai 👋 so, for the next few posts, I’m gonna do my New York recommendations because the past few days have been a taste sensation and I want to remember every last BITE! People have been sooo generous telling me what’s good (looking at you @ogi_the_yogi , @obarratt and @dotorybk 🙏) and I’d like to share back! I’m here for two more days - are there any more essential spots I can’t leave without visiting?! . First up! After watching @christinatosi on @chefstablenetflix I had to visit @milkbarstore for the cereal milk soft-serve. I’m generally not a super sweet person but, completely like a child, was drawn in the by the bright lights and warm cookie smell. Its indulgent, all American sweets treats kept me buzzing during my walk round Central Park and if I had a birthday here, for sure I would insist on getting my cake from here.

2019 has not been my favourite. A couple of big life changes have left me pretty deflated. I’ve not really been bringing my A game and I’ve needed to lean on friends and family much more than I would normally. And where I know there’s no shame in that and I would never think twice about a friend needing anything from me, it still feels uncomfortable. So I’m trying to be curious about that feeling. I’m letting myself be cooked for, called, held. I’ve made a lot of snotty, incoherent phone calls and ranted and raved and ranted some more. It’s very novel, my default is to be the one cooking and holding. I’m not sure if I ‘like’ this leaning, but it feels important and I keep being told it’s ok. And if it means I’m spending more time round the dining table with people I care about, then that can only be a good thing. Being fed and watered is one the simplest and best ways to know you are cared for. Thanks to my lovely friends. . . . . . . . . . . #atmytable #shecooks #slowliving #cooking #2019 #foodie #dinner #allthefeels #care #fed #womeninfood #alwayshungry #eater #cookforlife
On day four of a tummy bug and so dreaming of all the delicious things I can’t eat. Par exemple, these wonderful oysters from @thewalrusbar down @maltbystmarket. Such a craving! I never thought I’d say this, but I’m getting bored of a carb only diet, bananas and avocados are my only relief. Woe is me. Pity meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. (But seriously those oysters are great, everyone go eat them at weekends, so salty fresh) . . . . . . . . #londonfoodfinds #maltbystreet #oysters #funkyfresh #eater #morefreshthanfunky #tastespotting #bermondsey #london #foodie #walrusandthecarpenter #zesty #eatexplore #londonfoodie #localtips
So incredibly excited to announce that #breadandbutterbook has been nominated for a James Beard award!! @thesnapery @butterculture and I are over the moon, this is an award that I thought only my idols could be nominated for and would never have imagined our little book would make it to the shortlist 🙌🏼💥😍 we love bread and butter so much, that was why we wrote the book, so to see recognition from such a prestigious institution is quite overwhelming but in the best way. Keeping our fingers crossed for 26th April when the results are announced🤞🏼(and shoutout to fellow @quadrillebooks nominee @cabritogoatmeat - congrats!) . . . . . . . . #jamesbeard #foodwriting #newvoicesinfood #breadandbutter #eater #preservingfoodculture #recipes #writerlife #quadrille #singlesubject
JAVA. You will have heard of it for the coffee ☕️ but my word, it is so much more. Here are the highlights (in reverse order) from my whistle-stop tour: yoga and swimming on a mountain side, eating all sorts of jungle treats including a prickly blueberry (!) and some sort of refreshing melon stick, swimming in a waterfall, afternoon stroll through the rainforest, doing deals and trying novel baked goods 🥮and being greeted by the best (and only) towel dog I have ever seen 🐕 PHEW! Indonesians are the loveliest people and the food was incred but I was too greedy to take more photos🤭 not quite ready to come but needs must - food waste isn’t going to save itself, IS IT?! . . . . . . . . #java #travelgram #seetheworld #jakarta #indonesia #toweldog #yogaretreat #rainforest #sukabumi #naturelover #outinthewild #jungle #dontgochasingwaterfalls #butdo #eattheworld #explore #yogalover #foodie #getoutmore #weekendaway

A bit of light reading over porridge this morning 📚 🥣 This amazing book from 1978 is a really fascinating look into all kinds of local British foods. Some are still going strong today (Kendal mint cake and Chelsea buns) but others have completely fallen out of favour (boiled beef and carrots anyone?). I love texts like this, preserving food culture is so important and books like this show how much we are likely to lose if we don’t make the effort to write it all down! . . . . . . . . #foodculture #preservation #foodwriting #foodhistory #insearchoffood #eatlocal #foodie #recipes #eater #womeninfood #porridge #writerlife #tea #foodstagram #knowledgeispower
