  Things may seem rather quiet around here, but I can promise you that the quietness on my blog is a reflection of the busyness in my life and the chaos in my head. I have found the jump from two kids to three mind boggling. It is exhausting, relentless, and tedious at times. Conversely it is also wonderful and fun and hilarious. But if I am to be honest, more often than not, I am overwhelmed. Postnatal […]

  Photography by my lovely friend Virginia Woods-Jack I get mighty excited about making bread. It is my favourite fermented food and I never tire of watching the dough rise slowly throughout the day or the smell it creates during baking. I love how unique each loaf is when it is finished baking and pulled from the oven. Over the past couple of years I have slowly saved up and purchased a few bread-making tools […]

Vietnamese Pho is a delicious soup of rice noodles and thinly sliced rare beef in a rich spiced beef bone broth. Topped with Thai mint and basil and mung bean sprouts, this dish is a feast for the senses and also incredibly nourishing. If beef bone broth is normally too full-on for you, this is a great version to try, as the spices really alter the flavour and smell for the better! If you are […]

If there is one food I would recommend getting into your body on a regular basis it would have to be raw fermented sauerkraut (naturally fermented cabbage). This stuff is loaded with probiotics to help line the gut (digestive tract) with beneficial bacteria while also providing important vitamins, minerals and enzymes to help with digestion and gut health. Sauerkraut also helps to get rid of toxins in our body as well as reducing and eliminating fungal and yeast […]
