Classic Tuna Tartare

Very few people make tartare -tuna or otherwise- at home, intimidated by the idea of it.

What exactly is intimidating, I’m not entirely sure, as tuna tartare is one of the easiest recipes ever to make at home!

It requires almost no cooking skills or equipment.

The real key to an amazing tuna tartare: use super fresh fish!

So skip the supermarket, ask your fishmonger for ‘sushi grade’ tuna for optimum results and you’re all set. Then it’s all down to a bit of manual labour.

Best-ever Guacamole

When people ask me what my go-to recipe, or death-row dish is, they always assume my answer will be a cake of some description.

But the truth is, if my ultimate brownies recipe comes a close second, with anything salted caramel not far behind, guacamole is what makes it to the very top of my list.

Not just any guacamole though!

Forget the store-bough rubbish, I like mine with none of that additive-preservative-dairy bullshit.

Creamy, fresh, zingy, packed full of gorgeous, healthy ingredients, yet super indulgent, home-made guacamole is a thing of beauty.

Loads of creamy avocado, a sprinkle of chopped tomato and onion, a good squeeze of lime and plenty of fresh herbs… That’s all you need to get smashing, really!
