Hello, Melissa here! Please say hello to my new cookbook… FEEL GOOD :  100 quick and easy recipes to bring a bit of comfort and joy into our kitchens and beyond. Coming 2nd June 2022! FEEL GOOD  is all about exploring how food and cooking makes us feel. Comforted, connected, energised, calmer, grounded, satisfied and soothed and more. I’ve been so excited to share this with you, I’ve been squirreling away on it for the last 2 years and here it is. FEEL GOOD FOOD  is how I’ve long described how I like to cook end eat at home. More and more of us are cooking with both our mental and physical health in mind. So these are my favourite recipes that help me feel supported. Recipes that I turn to when I’m low on energy and want to feel brighter. Recipes that are so easy that they are a joy to cook and make me feel more confident. Food that helps me feel calmer and more grounded and big sharing recipes for when friends come over and I want to spoil them and show them love but also I want to

Belly-Warming Baking With Jasmine

Food from the oven serves two purposes in winter: first keeping your belly warm from the inside out with freshly baked, roasted or braised home cooking, and second keeping you cosy with the the heat kicking out from the oven while you prep.

Buckwheat Apple Skillet Cake

A beautiful breakfast — perfect for the season.

Caramelised Beetroot, Red Onion and Pecan Tart With a Quinoa-Almond Crust

My Christmas centrepiece for 2018, this delicious tart works all year round. Serve with steamed winter greens in the cold weather and a crisp salad come summer.

Caramelised Orange and Pistachio Mung Dal Cake

Oranges are a blast of sunshine from neighbouring southern Europe in the midst of winter. This is a cake made of mung beans — yes, you read that right.

Rosemary Mung Bean Bread

Another mung bean extravaganza, this bread is a gamechanger for so many reasons. It’s wholesome, easy, simple, gluten-free, high in protein and affordable — oh and nut-free, which is a rarity when it comes to gluten-free baked alternatives!

Chai Spiced Cranberry Cookies

From my most recent Christmas repertoire, these sweet spiced biscuits remind me simultaneously of lovely gatherings with family and friends and of my travels.

Blackberry Apple Ginger Buckwheat Cake

Another apple cake, this one has some extra heat thanks to the  ginger, and a beautiful mottled appearance thanks to the the classic pairing of apples with seasonal blackberries. Serve hot with tea and mmmh…
