My life in Provence is a simple one. I wake to the clangs of the village bells and the dogs that howl in harmony. I walk to the bakery – simple baguette is now all I need. The previous holidays’ over-eager eyes and expanding waistline have taught me that croissants, […]

Flourless lime and coconut cake

Flourless lime and coconut cake

Chicken and camel milk tagine

Chicken and camel milk tagine

I have a new tagine. It’s a fancy one – Staub. It cost way too much, but it’s the first tagine I’ve had that does the full job – it works on the stovetop, and in the oven. Until now, I’ve used a 45 year old enamel pot that came […]
