Meadows and Byrne reached out to me last week to ask how to best get through the cold winter weather in Ireland at the moment. Luckily, I do not have this problem basking in the Sydney sunshine! However, I was back in Ireland over Christmas and know all too well how it feels to be […]
This was one of the first dishes we made at Paon cooking school in Ubud, Bali. It is so fresh and light and so easy to make. Perfect for a snack or with a salad and you can freeze any extra you make for future use. Enjoy x

These are an absolute staple in my diet and everyone I make them for loves them! They are really easy to make and the flavour is delicious. Makes such a good side for a roast dinner or even to just spice up having some simple grilled fish/ chicken. It’s a great way to trick people […]
