The food choices fit onto a single-sided white card because Canvas is the type of restaurant which doesn't believe in adjectives. Personally, I like this, seeing it as a necessary pendulum swing away from the existential absurdity of some menus, which can feel more like the outpourings of a frustrated novelist than the listing of food items.
How ready for Christmas are you? I am feeling pretty smug to be honest. I don't want to rub your faces in it, but really I'm almost done. I've ordered everything I need to online. I haven't written the cards yet, but that's not allowed until I crack open the mulled wine, which is only acceptable in the month of December.
The cooking world loves a beginner! Every chef from Heston Blumenthal to Marco Pierre White started their cooking careers as beginners! They all made the mistakes but still wanted to keep learning. The benefits of learning to cook are so good for you and your family...
It's Friday night. It's been a long week, and a glass of wine is calling. While you traipse to the shops to buy a bottle of red, or pull a boring bottle from the cupboard, think of the few lucky enough to have a wine cellar in their own home.
It may seem shocking that you can be both obese and undernourished, but perhaps it isn't so astonishing if you look at the nutrients in many of our regular snacks. How many nutrients do you get in biscuits, pieces of cake, crisps, fries, pizza, white rice, pasta and bread? Not a whole lot.
We waved to a waiter who came and removed the garbage and wiped the table clean - they didn't mop the floor - and then we pondered how best to get something to eat. We soon figured out that you need to help yourselves from the trolleys that come from the kitchen, and you need to get to the trolley soon before the hoards take the first pickings.
Dogs have a need for much more taurine than humans. Taurine is important for healthy heart function. The diet must also provide a correct balance of calcium to phosphorus. The two work together to maintain the growth and structure of the skeletal system and help to avoid deficiencies.
This is a lovely little full teacup of a book; light and refreshing yet full of body, a fresh new blend of narrative and anecdote. Paul Chrystal's new book "Tea: A Very British Beverage" offers a satisfying look at the history and cultural impact of tea, ranging from the legends of its discovery...
After 26 years blissfully chomping on meat, I decided to give it up - for good. After one month (because any earlier would be too soon), I thought I'd highlight the trials and tribulations of turning veggie in your mid-20s.
I still have four precious quinces sitting in a dish and I promised recently to give some recipes for these beauties so I thought it might be fun to give an entire menu featuring quince in some form. No mince though and you're on your own when it comes to sourcing a runcible spoon, although I'm told it resembles what we now call a "spork".
A surprisingly simple but elegant soup. A few sprigs of fresh dill also works well.
I've always had a complicated relationship with food. A foodie for as long as I can remember, by the time I was 13, I weighed 13 stone. Constant teasing and self-consciousness finally led to a full-blown eating disorder in my late teens. After a great deal of hard work I managed to conquer my illness, and thankfully my love of food remained.
These are the most delicious little bites. I recently catered for a wedding and we made hundreds of these babies for one of the canapés. They went down a storm! Serve them up with tzatziki or hummus and pass them round for all to enjoy.
If I was to have my 'cooking dinner' time over again with children, there are lots of things I would do different. Each stage of a child's food education and development is special and this includes discovering good food, cultivating exciting palates, appropriate size portions, cultivating a healthy attitude to food....
Although it's usually made with cabbage, there are over 200 varieties of Kimchi in Korea, and fermentation produces lactic acid bacteria which protect against cancer, boost the body's immune system and keep your skin young.
I am never happy. No, I don't mean I'm a depressive. I think I was depressed for about 2 months back in 1999, but other than that have been lucky on that front. I'm just never happy with my lot. I have this constant suspicion I am missing out on things. I have to try everything once. It's a recipe for disaster. Like poor impulse control in infants.
