This year I spent my 27th birthday in Venice. With no particular recipe (yet!) below are just some of my favourite food highlights…
This little supper is part of my New Year’s diet plan. Tonnato is a tuna based sauce that the Italians slather over veal usually. This recipe had piqued my interest. However, the veal had to go as it’s not an ingredient I can pick up easily, and YummaNumma is all about simple suppers for busy people. So I created this slimming recipe… coodles (cucumber noodles), deliciously soft boiled burford browns, tonnato sauce and crisp capers.
If you follow me on instagram, you will know that I have just been in Texas. After a full on but amazing five days away, it was straight back into work with the Christmas party and it is now looking pretty non-stop until Christmas. Exhausting. Fear not!!! This recipe hits you up with some cold-fighting and energising ingredients that will see you through these next few weeks. I found out in Texas that chillies are packed full of vitamin C and are the Texan’s secret weapon to fight colds. Who knew!?
I was lucky enough to first try this at Alice and Oscar’s dinner party and was blown away by how yummy it was. Alice kindly gave me the recipe and I just simply had to have a go myself.
I’ve been very absent recently and I am very sorry! But I abide by the law that food blogging must be fun and having been stressed out by other bits and bobs I haven’t been able to focus on YummaNumma nearly enough. Until…The final of the Great British Bake Off called for something cosy to keep our tummies from grumbling as we eagerly awaited who would be crowned this years champion. This lentil and chicken recipe is just so simple and rather numma too. Just the ticket for a cosy night in.
