And, dear reader, I did. I was lucky enough to be invited to the grand opening of The Visconti Studio at Kingston University last week and deliver a cake to a hero of mine.

Weekend Bakes: Can I Borrow Your Kitchen?

It’s finally happening. Today, we ‘break ground’ on my kitchen refit. This has been something I’ve dreamed of for many years.

Weekend Bakes: Take Some Time to Relax

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve been posting later and less regularly than I like to this week as I have been under the weather! It was always in the post and, as it turns out, the post-Goodwood lurgy was delivered right on schedule… and kind of put a dampener on my week. Enough of all of that moaning!┬áIt kicked … Read More
