What’s better than a baked butternut squash? One that’s smothered in raclette cheese…

Hola y adiós! I’m flying off to Barcelona today for a few days for work. In all honesty, I’ve been a bundle of nerves these last few weeks getting ready for this conference, and while it’s like my umpteenth time working there, the stress never gets easier.

Vegetarian delights: A savoury fried (white) carrot cake from South-east Asia (chai tow kway)

South-east Asian street food at its best 🙂 One of my earliest posts for thebigfatnoodle was about how I taught myself to make a local dish from South-east Asia called fried carrot cake.

A blueberry lemon cheesecake double decker (de-constructed)

Should I or shouldn’t I? I love blueberries. I never actually tried a proper, fresh blueberry until I went to Australia but once I did, I was well and truly hooked. That they’re so healthy and good for you is irrelevant because I just love how they taste. I also love the fact that they’re … Continue reading
