eat.travel.live – Best Brownies

Crumbly and cake-esque or with a fudge-like finish, whatever your preference there’s a brownie out there for everyone – and let’s face it, everyone, at least that I’ve ever met, loves a brownie. Personally, I love this all-American treat with a not too rich dark, dense middle and crisp top. Brownie purists may balk at [...]

eat.travel.live – Best Banana Bread

Banana bread began appearing in cookbooks in the 1930s, popularised by resourceful housewives of the Great Depression keen not to waste their over-ripe bananas. Today, they are still the most popular snacking fruit and a slice of banana bread with its low GI is an ideal choice if you fancy a slow-release pick-me-up that won’t [...]

Recipe Video – Summer Pavlova

Summer's coming!! Alright, by that I mean I've put the thermal socks away - a reason to celebrate surely? And, what better way than treating yourself to a pavlova with all the suggestions of summer; roasted rhubarb, vanilla, strawberries and passion fruit cream...

Gone are the old greasy dough balls and in are the delectable doughnuts with inventive fillings and fashionable toppings that I [...]

Welcome to my blog!

Recipe Video – Easter Macarons

I realised while filming The Telegraph Fabulous Foodie competition rounds earlier this year that despite feeling nervous during the competition, I was actually relishing the part of being on camera. Having modelled since I was 18, being in front of a stills camera is something I’m familiar with, but video is something different. Before you [...]

Telegraph Fabulous Foodie 2015 – And the winner is… me!

Towards the end of last year I was invited to The Telegraph offices to screen test for their upcoming 'Fabulous Foodie' competition in association with Aldi. After auditioning there was a nail-biting wait until I found out I had made it through to the competition and we would be filming only two weeks later in the New [...]
