On our second night in Marrakech we had dinner booked at The Selman hotel, which is a 5 star hotel situated about 15minutes outside the centre. Prior to dinner we decided to visit the La Mamounia hotel for cocktails, as we'd been recommended by friends that it was a must whilst in Marrakech, and we sat in the pretty gardens and enjoyed a refreshing early evening cocktail each.

I hardly used to eat any vegetables so the fact that this salad is made up of kale of all things means it had to be pretty tasty! This is now one of my all time favourite kale recipes that I go back to again and again...

This spicy avocado dip is so creamy and delicious with sweet potato wedges. Avocados are everywhere these days. You see them in smoothies, on toast with lavish toppings, and made into decadent chocolate mousse.

Everyone has a bucket list, and for many, this may include a visit to a beautiful Renaissance era city such as Vienna. A Viennese Ball may even make it to the list. But a Vegan Ball in Vienna?

It's Christmas! Get Ready for Some Eating!

Christmas means something different to everyone. For some, it's a time to spend with family; for children, it's usually about Santa and the presents; and for others, it is of course about the birth of Jesus Christ. For me, inevitably you might argue, it's about the food.

A Disappointing Valentine

I was torn. Undecided. I had planned a trip to the cinema with a friend yet despite having you all to myself the last three nights, I was tempted. It was becoming routine, more serious but still, a very attractive proposition.

We Will Eat at the Table Tonight!

In my house I am made to feel like the biggest nag in the world suggesting a family dinner round the table - by all five of my men! My two eldest tell me that 'it's boring' sitting at the table. My four year old contests just because that seems the thing to do and hey, if his big brothers are saying it then it must be right.

I often ask people what their top roadblocks are to eating a healthy meal each night. The answers I hear the most include finding the time, motivation and energy to prepare dinner. Especially after a long day of work, when you're tired and hungry, this is when dinners go to the wayside.

Great food, sunshine and a move to the French military harbour of Toulon rekindled the rugby magic for Jonny Wilkinson. Unfortunately I don't think I'll have any calls coming in from Laporte to fill his boots. A shame; I do fancy the Mediterranean.

Is quiche not the perfect, universal crowd pleaser? It seems whenever I make it for a gathering it's Hoovered up way before everything else. I think it satisfies the angel and devil in all of us. Egg rich protein guaranteed to fill us up until the next available meal slot, combined with decadent cheese and cream.

This is a good way of using up cold beef left over from the Sunday joint if, like me, your eyes are bigger than your tummy and you ordered half a cow.

Other than Samsung smartphones, the big import exciting London's bloggers is Korean food: whilst a row of Korean eateries has existed behind Centrepoint for years, the recent explosion in street-food and markets has brought Korean flavours to a wider audience. But, apparently, there's more to Korean food than mixed rice, Kimchi (fermented cabbage) and chilli pepper paste.

For all the Robin Thickes out there, me deciding to make a roast dinner was not me deciding to take my rightful place in the kitchen. On a less chauvinistic note - if you've ever lived with me at university, you'd know my kitchen skills are rather average.
