Thanks Folkestone for hosting a Pride party for me! How did you know I was coming today?! #pride
One of my most vivid memories of Mum was walking along the Leas at Folkestone and smelling the curry plants. Wonderful to see (and smell) them today. Fragrant and in full flower.
Thanks Matt for taking me to get some #vitaminsea today - much needed.
Popped in to wish Mum a happy birthday and say thanks for everything. She would have been 70 this week. #alwaysmissyou
Very excited!! We have just completed on a property purchase in Spain! Thanks to @inland_andalucia for getting us there!! Can’t wait to get over there now and start getting the house how we want it!
Queen @gracejonesofficial was AMAZING this evening. There is no one quite like our Grace! She still has the voice, the stamina, the charm and the wit. Simply gorgeous!
So amazing to see @jamiroquaihq live at @onblackheath this evening! Fantastic set and superlative performance as expected. Even better that it’s so close to home! Great to see Vicky, Jez and the kids. Love you guys x
Managed to rescue some of the plums - didn’t realise they were quite ripe but sat here with my tea and watched the squirrels coming down and picking them!! #homegrown #VictoriaPlum #SweetAndJuicy
Homemade Buñuelos de Bacalao (Salt Cod Fritters) - as seen throughout Spain, Portugal and now Catford #madeinmythermomix
Pastéis De Nata - homemade Portuguese style custard tarts flavoured with lemon and cinnamon in a crisp puff pastry case. One of my favourite pastries and best eaten warm from the oven or cold from the fridge. #madeinmythermomix
The name’s Lorraine.... Quiche Lorraine. Homemade and best eaten warm or at room temperature. Delicious! #madeinmythermomix
Homemade Berry Cordial - Managed to get some redcurrants, blackcurrants and raspberries from my berry patch before the birds! Made a delicious cordial that is nice with sparkling water (or sparkling wine!). #madeinmythermomix
Salt Cod - Taken some salt cod and put it in water to soak overnight. Will be making salt cod croquettes tomorrow. Watch this space!
Poached Peaches - actually steamed gently for precision and then left to marinate in a spice wine syrup. Will last a couple of days in the fridge - in theory! #madeinmythermomix
Homemade apricot jam. Top Tip: It’s too warm to keep butter out in the summer, so keep it in the fridge and grate what you need with a microplane blade - softens to spreadable instantly!
Carrot & Coconut Salad - a chopped salad dressed with lime juice. Here served with haloumi and drizzled with pomegranate molasses. A delicious starter. #madeinmythermomix
Apricots with Cardamon Syrup - Apricots steamed for 10 to soften and then left to cool in a cardamon syrup. A gorgeous summer dessert, served with a big dollop of creamy Turkish yoghurt. #madeinmythermomix
Delicious Berry Foam for dessert. Made far too much so the rest goes in the freezer as a sort of cheats gelato! #madeinmythermomix
