Lemon Meringue Cheesecake. I love desserts but they are often complicated to make. When I’m entertaining the last thing I want to do is risk a disaster, and believe me it happens. Cream in France is notoriously tricky and last year I made a Pavlova and watched as the cream just slid out from between […]
Asian Roast Chicken. So you probably know by now that, although I’m British and living in France, I love all of the Asian flavours. Back in Britain we would visit our local Indian restaurant and enjoy ordering off menu, they must have cringed when we walked in! The food was always fantastic, well priced and […]

These Chicken Caesar Burgers are perfect ‘man grub’, especially when there is football on! This is another easy recipe that makes lots of dressing so you can slather it on the side salad or leave it for another day. The burger bun becomes one giant crispy Parmesan croûton….
Seared Tuna Nicoise Platter. How can you resist a beautiful piece of tuna cooked simply? This is a lower fat dish for summer which is easy to put together for casual dining. If your experience of tuna is of the canned variety then you have to try this.
