I finally made THOSE @alisoneroman chocolate chunk shortbreads from 2017 because I like to stay 100% in front of the game. So happy her book Dining In is going to be released in a UK edition, I'll def be buying it. I used @pumpstreetchocolate 75% Jamaican couverture chocolate which is obviously amazing & i had to bite my own knuckles not to eat the whole lot out of the tin. #alisonroman#diningin#chocolatechunkshortbread#cookies#biscuits#pumpstreetbakery#jamaicanchocolate#famouscookiesofinstagram#baking#mondaymorningdoneright

My talented chocolatier friend @frankly.delicious spends hours polishing his chocolates moulds to produce these stunning bonbons. I then promptly stick my thumbs all over them while attempting to photo them & ruin the gleam. You're welcome Frank, I'm available for all future photoshoots.

Something a little different today. My great grandfather's copy of the Rubaiyat from 1889. What really interests me is his own Ex Libris. It has his initials in the centre. Can anyone help translate the Hebrew for me? (I'm not Jewish but his branch of the family was.) #exlibris#bookplate#hebrew#oldshit#greatgrandfathersofinstagram#rubaiyat#rubaiyatofomarkhayyam#justinhuntlymccarthy#britishjewishhistory

Chocolate cardamom tart made by me for last night's @draperscookbook Recipe by the wonderful @nikisegnit They say don't meet your heroes but having met Olia Hercules & now Niki Segnit through the Draper's Arms Cookbook Club, I say bugger that. Maybe steer clear of rock stars, but definitely meet your food heroes. Two amazing women who have changed the way I cook. And the funniest friendliest people you could hope to meet. @anthology_of_ana wish you could have been there #nikisegnit#oliahercules#lateralcooking#flavourthesaurus#chocolatecardamomtart#drapersarms#draperscookbookclub#baking#pastry#myshortcrustbattle#welllovedcookbooks

I recently read @caranicoletti 's book of recipes drawn from literature in a day. Not only is it a warm, funny, engaging read but also the recipes are exciting - I've bookmarked 4 or 5. I love malt & I love Maurice Sendak so I had to try her Scalded & Malted Milk cake inspired by 'In The Night Kitchen'. I love the flavours like mad. This might be my new go-to alternative to a vanilla sponge. Ofc the cake stuck like a bastard to the tin but I am serving it anyway. #tastylumps Decorated with @dianahenryfood 's sweet pickled cherries. #scaldedmilk#maltedmilk#scalded&maltedmilkcake#cake#bake#bundttinfail#voracious#caranicolette#dianahenry#readerswhoeat#eaterswhoread

So excited about this book Vibration Cooking I got this week. I first read about Geechee/Gullah culture last year & instantly wanted to know more. It's an African-American community in the southeast of the US, particularly islands called the Sea Islands, that was more isolated from the rest of the States during the slave era, & is more heavily influenced by West & Central African language, culture & religion than other parts of the South. Thanks @eatenmag for the article on Vertamae's book. Swipe for contents page & another page that caught my eye on a flick-through. #vertamaesmartgrosvenor#vibrationcooking#gullah#gullahgeechee#africanamerican#foodculture#foodhistory#learningthrougheating#eatenmagazine

First blood oranges of the year. I absolutely can't throw these fruit papers away. I have a box of them I've stored away. I mean to use them as wrapping paper but always forget. Anyone else share this problem? #bloodoranges#citrus#fruitpaper#magpie#britainsgreatesthoarder

Twelfth Cake. (Ok, it's my Christmas cake I only just got around to decorating.) I personally can't think of better guides through the new year than the Moomins, & especially Little My. I need more of her fearless & fierce attitude to life. More mischief for you all this coming year! #happynewyear#2019#mischief#littlemy#moomins#lillamy#mumin#bemoremoomin#christmascake#christmasbaking#twelfthcake#twelfthnight#betterlatethannever#betterlivingthroughcake

Birthday cake for a pirate. Rhubarb, marmalade & rosemary from @dianahenryfood 'How To Eat A Peach'. The smell of this when it came out of the oven was sensational. Very excited to try it. Hopefully the Pirate won't plunder the lot. #birthdaycake#pirate#jollyroger#skull#marzipandecoration#rhubarb#marmaladecake#howtoeatapeach#dianahenry#baking#cake#sharingcakewithpirates#notallpirates

Eggnog & mince pies. First testing of my homemade eggnog. For people who, like me, were put off by the frankly revolting name, I'm here to tell you the homemade stuff is GOOD. Very rich & creamy & alcoholic. It's kind of like boozy custard. If you love Bailey's it's an interesting variant. Also my fully homemade mince pies with @nigellalawson rhubarb mincemeat & @danlepard enriched shortcrust pastry. Glazed & then sprinkled with a pinch of @rootedspices House Blend (which is a blend of cinnamon, tumeric & black pepper). Happy 8th of December! #mincepies#eggnog#homemade#justiceforthenog#nogisnotnasty#christmas#christmasbaking#advent#cosysunday#nutmeg#goldenblend

Wolfenoot Cake. In case you've never heard of Wolfenoot it's a festival to celebrate wolves & people who are nice to dogs. It was invented by a 7 year old from New Zealand & personally I'd much rather celebrate that than Black Friday. It always happens to be my dog-loving friend Justin's birthday, so I had to make him a Wolfenoot birthday cake. Not my greatest work - one of those bakes where EVERYTHING went wrong, but sometimes when that happens it's a triumph that you finished instead of slinging it against a wall! Happy Wolfenoot everyone. #wolfenoot#wolfenoot2018#mooncake#wolfenootcake#birthdaycake#baking#homemade#happywolfenoot#bakingdisaster#kindapulleditround#chocolatecake#peanutbutterfrosting#fuckblackfriday#internationalbuynothingday
