I am more than excited to announce the book launch of Mira Manek Saffron Soul: Healthy, vegetarian heritage recipes from India
Mira Manek is the Indian cuisine equivalent of Deliciously Ella. Her recipes are light, flavourful, exquisite and did I mention absolutely mouthwatering. She hosts yoga events, supper clubs and bespoke Indian feasts to show how tasty and healthy the world of Indian inspired cooking can be.
Her recipes change traditional views that Indian food is based on heavy curries and introduces a world of flavours that many of us have yet to explore.
I am excited to take this next voyage of discovery…!
Healthy Indian Cuisine
I met Mira two years ago after I attended a delicious feast which she hosted at Shoreditch House. The spread was incredible… if you don’t believe me read this!
The variety of flavours and ingredients filling the table were incredible. From chickpea flour pancakes with coriander chutney and chilli beet to Divine Mocha Cake with Nutmeg & Mocha Cashew Frosting, Raw Mocha Flapjacks with Nutmeg, and Almond Cocktails. Nutritious and delicious.
The main event for me though was the Saffron and Cardamon Cheesecake
Now can you see why I have been eagerly awaiting this launch!

#Christmas Gift Guide
It is coming to that wonderful time of the year when the mulled wine is flowing, the crackers are popping and Mariah Carey is playing at full volume! With all the celebrations filling our diary it can often be quite hard to get out to the shops to buy your nearest and dearest those special gifts!
Well this year I have tried to make the search a little easier by listing my Christmas Gift Guide inspired by #BFF
To keep it current I have separated my friends out by their hashtags! We all have them!

Gifts for #CLEANLIVING: La Eva
Clean living? Clean eating? Organic? Sustainable? What gift would be perfect for your world conscious friend? Well, let me introduce you, La Eva.
Anyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with this brand! From their beautiful packaging to the organic and glorious ingredients inside, La Eva is the perfect gift for that green goddess friend of yours this Christmas.
If you haven’t heard of this delightful brand you are about to go on a journey of artisan discovery. La Eva, born out of a small town in Oxfordshire, is run by a pixie-like, incredibly creative, and quality striving individual called Louisa.
Soil association certified and gorgeously organic – this brand really sets itself into a different league.
When you are introduced to the products you are instantly hit by their incredible design. Paint textures of hues of blue or pink, the eyes are enlightened. If you head to their website La-Eva, the paint texture theme continues, with incredible depictions of colour created by Rose-Marie Caldecott. But before I get distracted with how visually beautiful the products are – let us talk about what the products are like.
The range is split in two: Roseum and Blu. The product ranges take you down two sensory routes. Created with the highest quality ingredients, La Eva, believe that every product should be gentle enough to be used on the face and therefore it is gentle enough for the rest of the body.
This is the perfect gift for the conscious friend who sources their ingredients with ultimate care.
Gifts for the #FOODIE: bowls of goodness
This is the one for that friend who can’t take a bite without first getting the gram!
Gorgeous creations which will hype their feed to the next level – the bowls of goodness will leave your mouth watering and their #foodporn photos poppin’
