Lilac sugar

Published: 13th May 2015

If there was a signature scent of May, for me it would be lilac and I love that you can capture its beautiful perfume in food. I've made three sweet treats from one beautiful purple lilac, this is the first.

Allotments have much more value than the price of the land they sit on. They feed, educate, heal and unite communities and are as vital as ever. That's why I'm supporting the Sign for Victory campaign.

The best thing about those days when you don't have to be at work or rush out somewhere is brunch. Brunch with flowers? Well even better, especially when they are as beautiful as rocket flowers.

Primulas are here, like an alarm clock for spring. Some of them are delicate and unassuming and others showy enough to compete with any brassy summer bloom. All are gorgeous.

Edible flowers - Violas

Chocolate is brown and borage is blue, sometimes. But wow look at these gorgeous colours together. I'm going to say the cliche - its a match made in heaven.

Basil flower brandy peaches

Published: 1st Dec 2014
