Peach & Blueberry Shortbread Crumble

Ah, week four of the summer holidays. Just about half way through for my daughter, who was among the first to finish nursery and will be one of the last to start reception in September. We’ve been doing a lot of baking (surprise!) including things […]

Cioccolata Densa (Super-thick Italian Hot Chocolate)

I’ve been on something of an obsessive mission to make good, proper hot chocolate ever since I unwittingly ordered the BEST hot chocolate I have ever had in my life while on holiday in Paris. This mind-bogglingly good stuff came in a silver pot and […]

Blackberry & Apple Crumble
