By : Debbie Rogers Behind The Scenes It's lunchtime on a weekday and I'm being ushered behind the scenes into the kitchen at Ronda Locatelli for an exclusive masterclass.

Tom Kerridge’s Dopamine Diet ~ My low-carb, stay-happy way to lose weight

By Debbie Rogers: Is this a Diet Book? This isn’t a diet book, you won’t find a long list of ‘dos and don’ts, you won’t find daily meal plans, or any sections on weighing and recording your results etc. Instead, it’s more of a cookbook where Tom shares the recipes that he cooks that allow him to follow [...]

Diane Henry ~ A Change of Appetite

By Debbie Rogers: "this is not just another cookbook with gorgeous photos, there’s a good smattering of nutritional information in a casual educational ‘hmm let me think about that a bit more’ sort of way, literally leaving you with further ‘food for thought".

Sweet Paris ~ Homemade Blackcurrant Sorbet with Cassis

By Michael Paul 'This time-honoured French sorbet is simple to make and creates a great after-dinner interlude before the cheese and a serious pudding.

Sweet Paris ~ Parisian Chocolate Truffles

By Michael Paul 'I can’t see the point in making filled chocolates. It’s a painstaking, big-girl’s- blouse of a business, and they will never be as perfect as those made by a skilled Parisian chocolatier. Chocolate truffles are more my style. They are fun to make and not too difficult. They make an ideal gift [...]

Sweet Paris ~ Chocolate Cupcakes with Rose Marshmallow Topping

By Michael Paul 'As both brownies and marshmallows are the happening thing in Paris, these cupcakes just had to make their debut in this book. I’m not a big fan of the boring sponge base used in many cupcake recipes or, for that matter, of heaps of over-sweet frosting that tastes only of sugar. So, [...]
