Hailed by Vogue as one of the top cultural events in London last summer, our Wake up With event series is returning this spring, and what a line-up we've got for you!
This week it's all about comfort food. Warming bowls of delicious food that nourish the soul and will fend off any pesky winter colds or blues. I’ve rounded up my favourite comforting recipes so you can enjoy these too.
For some, nay most, coming last in a race would be a bit of a downer. But not for Dawn Nisbet. Oh no. Images have gone viral of Dawn crossing the finish line of a park race she took part in last year, of which it took her so long to complete pretty much everyone else had packed up and gone home.
Just as Toblerone-gate settled, news broke this weekend that manufacturers of some of the UK's favourite chocolate bars, including Kit Kat, Dairy Milk and Mars, are set to reduce the size of their bars by 20% in order to meet government targets on reducing sugar. The first comment we saw was "Ill just buy two bars then."
It made me so happy waking up to the news on Monday morning that Adele had split her Grammy award for best album in two, giving the other half to Beyonce. Not only because of her album, but for the way she makes her and her friends feel. How she makes them feel empowered.
A healthier take on classic rice crispy cakes - an an easy and indulgent sweet treat that is as equally nutritious as it is delicious.
It can be challenging staying in shape and keeping fit when you have a busy work and social schedule. Thankfully, Louisa Drake has shared with us her top tips on maintaining a good work-life balance and how to get more movement into your everyday routine/improve your physical activity for 2017.
This guide is aimed at helping you take those first steps to a lighter, brighter you. Try dipping in and out of it when you feel in need of a helping hand, and remember not to beat yourself up about that treat or extra helping, just focus on getting that balance back afterwards.
For years we’ve adorned our crudité party platters with elegant slivers of celery but this winter we ask that you give its close relative celeriac a go. It averages at £1 a go, it’s seriously good for you and rather delicious.
With great festivity comes great responsibility. In the weeks leading up to the big event it is nothing short of obligatory to have a flute of bubbles or bottomless mug of mulled wine to hand. Luckily we have an inbuilt system that processes and eliminates toxins, but it could do with a little help.
Buckwheat pasta is a great alternative to wheat based pastas. We have combined it with a delicious pesto that packs in fresh basil flavours and a cashew and fennel seed crumb that adds a crunchy texture and earthy notes.
We are always experimenting with this original super food and our broccoli bread is definitely a keeper. It’s simple to make, full of goodness and surprisingly tasty. Even our boys in the kitchen were gobbling it back! We have served it with a delicious quinoa, brown rice, avocado and pomegranate salad.
Created by one of our very talented chefs, this is everything a chocolate cake should be: rich, creamy and intensely chocolatey. There is no baking involved, and the sweet avocado icing is a brilliant alternative to a cream cheese frosting.
A seductively smooth mousse- like cream, which is rich but light at the same time and beats all its rivals! While many chocolate desserts can be heavy and cloying, coconut yogurt adds a subtle surprising freshness to these pots.
A proper hearty soup is a sure fire way to get you in the mood for winter. The big question is; should it be chunky or should it be smooth? On a cold day we’re very happy to gulp down either, but if there ever were a queen of the smooth soups then this silky classic is it.
Our Turkey and Coconut Soup is not only delicious but you’ll soon be reaping the benefits from the ginger which is a powerful anti-inflammatory and the turkey which contains the amino acid tryptophan, which is converted to serotonin in the brain.
Smoothies and juices are a really easy way to boost your daily nutrient intake and should form a welcome addition to your diet. We like to make this quick but also really tasty green juice in the morning if we know that we are going to be rushing around all day and will need an extra lift.
There is nothing more comforting that a big streaming bowl of sweet, yet sharp, stewed apple and blackberry, with a golden, crumbly top. Topped off with a big dollop of creamy coconut yogurt.
