My best pumpkin pie yet!
Dad’s amazing chocolate panna cotta cake.
Apple strudels for the whole family to make and enjoy.
This is based on an Erdbeer-Biskuit-Kuchen recipe from a German fruit flan cookbook. I was given the book during a recent trip to Germany by our hosts during ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ (traditional coffee and cake social just after lunch).
Inspired by the ricotta tarts made in Naples at Easter.
Rhubarb is brilliant – it’s got a silly name, it’s vegetable that tastes like fruit, and its pink! My ‘deconstructed’ crumble keeps the shape and the beautiful colour of the rhubarb and transforms a homely pud into a something special.
I made eight flavours of biscotti as Christmas gifts. A bit mad, but lots of fun. The photo shows the hazelnut, orange and chocolate, and chocolate and chocolate flavour – the rest were eaten!
With an abundance of apples being harvested, what better way to use your bounty than with this autumnal cinnamon apple pie.
These are possibly the poshest tinned peaches you will ever eat. They’re not only delicious, they’re beautiful.
This cheesecake is a perfect partner for summer strawberries.
Well everybody who has eaten this says it’s delicious. Mrs WDC insists I post the recipe so she can make it – perhaps that’s the best compliment of all!
Tiramisu is everybody’s favourite pudding. Here’s a great adaptation using leftover panettone.
Now this is an after dinner treat. Picked by mum and dad at local farms and maybe neighbours houses — it’s the perfect after dinner treat.
Food-for-free and foraging is the way. A diverse recipe to make your own rosehip syrup. Full of vitamins and goodness, try with yogurt or even rice pudding.
