Today’s Woman Crush Wednesday needs no introduction to anyone who is privy to the foodie scene in London. Angela Harnett is a giant in the culinary world here in the Big Smoke. She worked her way up through the most prestigious kitchens and under heavyweights such as Gordon Ramsey and Marcus Wareing. But it would appear her greatest culinary inspiration came from closer to home.
It’s day five of Soup Scentral! I shared some awesome recipes from my blog arsenal on day one, day two was Woman Crush Wednesday when I made a gorgeous vegetable soup from our fabulous honoree Katie Lee. Day three I shared a communal soup list from some of my fav bloggers. Yesterday, day four, I gave you a glimpse into a fresh food box service and a Vietnamese Soup Pho you. Today I am going to share a very special recipe. It is called Friendship Soup. Continue reading
Most people realize home cooked food is better for us then eating out. We certainly know exactly what is in each dish we cook. It can also be a massive financial savings. However, for busy people the shopping and prepping of the food can put them off the benefits of eating at home. So enter a new rising star…food boxes delivered to your door. In America the popular one is Blue Apron, in the U.K it is Hello Fresh. All come with the necessary ingredients and easy to follow instruction recipe cards for your sit down restaurant quality dinner at home. How does this fit into Soup Scentral week you ask?

Without a doubt, soups are a communal meal. It became very clear to me on my first night at Ballymaloe Cookery School. It was the eve of the twelve weeks course and many of us had traveled far and wide to be at this oasis in the Irish countryside.

I mentioned it in my very first blog Karen in County Cork. Just re-reading that post makes me crave that soup as well as the company I had sitting around enjoying every spoonful. Continue reading

While today is indeed Tuesday, January 3rd, in many ways it is the official beginning of 2017. Most people are back to work, back to school and have their New Year’s Resolutions in full speed mode.
One of the biggest New Year’s resolutions has to do with food. Let’s face it, the holidays are all full of temptations and indulgence is standard operating procedure. But what if there are those of us that don’t want to go on a diet? As I have said before, I for one try to avoid things with the word DIE in it. So instead of DIET I like to LIVE it! Continue reading
It is flat out cold this week, so our lovely Woman Crush Wednesday chef is going to warm us up! Without a doubt we have to make a soup, and the gorgeous gourmet gal perfect for inspiration today is Allegra McEvedy. She is also a resident of London so she’s probably bundled up as well. And I hope she enjoys the lovefest over on my Snapchat channel (username blissbakery) where I will recreate live her awesome Beet and Bramley soup recipe! Continue reading
