Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

I’m not sure about you, but we are having lovely warm weather here in London. Which means I am craving some light and healthy salads!  And today’s Woman Crush Wednesday honoree chef Lynda Booth is going to save the day. Especially since it is a quick and easy recipe for her Grated Carrot and Beetroot Salad.  Because if you’re like me, some weekdays are hectic! With work and errands it leaves little time to get a meal on the table. So paired with a nice piece of fish, I am counting on this salad to be a 100 yard dash dinner winner!

Hello again and thanks for coming back for another episode of Woman Crush Wednesday. The best day of the week in my book!  Because another fabulous female foodie gets the love and we get a new recipe!  I am so excited to share today’s honoree with you.  Hubby and I watched Shelina Permalloo win Master Chef U.K. in 2012. We were still living in Dublin back then. Who knew we’d be living in the U.K. now ourselves!  Hopefully one day soon I can go to her restaurant Lakaz Maman in Southhampton for a Foodie Fieldtrip Friday! But first, I am going to recreate one of Shelina’s recipes on my Snapchat (username blissbakery) so come watch, or just continue reading for pics and more about this gorgeous gourmet gal!  Continue reading

I realize that for some this whole Woman Crush Wednesday means something all together different than how I interpret it.  But to each his/her own.  For me this day is a chance to shine the light on a female chef creating some fabulousness in the culinary world. The truth is that even having to say “female” chef is indicative of the fact that when you hear the word chef you think of a man. While most of the Michelin star chefs are indeed men, I have taken this day to create a whole LOVE fest for a fabulous female foodie. I am excited to announce the 88th Woman Crush Wednesday honoree is the gorgeous gourmet gal Tess Ward!

Another Hump Day, another episode of Woman Crush Wednesday. The 87th to be exact.  But today is quite special as the amazing Myrtle Allen is getting honored! Yes the wonderful grandmother of Ireland’s food tourism, the owner of Ballymaloe House and a recipient of a Michelin star!  Myrtle Allen is now 94 years young and while living in County Cork Ireland as a farmer’s wife and rearing six children, she became responsible for putting fine dining and country living together in one sentence.  I had the pleasure of getting to know her while I was a student of the Ballymaloe Cookery School (owned by her daughter in law and WCW honoree Darina Allen).  And today I will be re-creating her fun recipe called “Balloons” from one of her cookery books!  So up, up and away for the tutorial…
