The Best Chicken Soup


Yes, I add wine to my chicken soup, I add wine and butter to most things, and I assure you it makes them taste better. To make my stock I use chicken carcasses and bones, boiled in water with 1 Tbsp of stock concentrate for added flavour...This recipe is my go-to winter warmer - enjoy!

Butternut and Beetroot Tart with a Feta and Nut Cream


Valentines Day is fast approaching and with that a world of disappointment for the thousands that forgot, didn't getting a reservation, or just didn't plan it right. Restaurants will be packed to the rafters so why no spoil your someone special with a beautiful dinner at home? Get a good bottle of wine (a slightly wooded chenin or chardonnay would go down a treat with this), a big bunch of flowers and you're golden!

This is my final phyllo recipe in conjunction with Mediterranean Delicacies for their #PhabPhyllo campaign. And I think this final recipe might be my favourite: the combination of the feta, cream and nuts is deliciously rich and pairs beautifully with the sweet butternut, slightly tart beetroot and crispy phyllo. If you can't fathom eating strictly vegetarian then pair this with some lemon and herb chicken breasts...I'm sure you could get creative and shape those into heart too ;)
