This brioche was doing the rounds recently in a group that I am part of on Facebook, so I decided to give it a go myself. Having done so, and found it not to be too difficult, I thought I would share my recipe and technique. You can play with and alter the filling as […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’ve had a Weber pizza stone for some time now and have spent some time trying to perfect pizza baking on my 47cm Weber kettle BBQ. I often found that my pizzas weren’t cooking all the way through or that the base was a little soggy despite the top being cooked. This, in addition to […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

At the time, she was going through a phase of watching the old 1984 episodes. As challenges go, this was a fairly big one for me. Whilst I enjoy cooking and baking, […]Continue Reading...
