As it’s getting colder (well, here it is – damn you Aussies and your beachy Instagram pics!), we thought we’d repost this to keep you cosy…
Let’s face it, Londoners: it’s still cold. And it’ll probably be cold for a long, long time.
Pudding for breakfast? Yes, please! But before you start thinking of whipped cream and chocolate for brunch (now that’s an idea) I have to tell you this ridiculously good morning treat actually strays dangerously close to smug food territory…
First of all, it’s made with virtuous chia seeds – they’re loaded with antioxidants, calcium and fibre, and are low-GI so give you a good, long energy boost.
So back when it was freezing cold and we were feeling festive here at Ladyland, I made a batch of spiced sloe gin. Since this ruby red booze is made from berries that are traditionally picked after the first frost of winter, it’s considered a bit of a Christmassy treat – and that batch of homemade sloe gin made a lot of people feel very merry indeed.
Behold, our latest instalment in Ladyland’s new series: A Perfect Day. It’s all about getting the local lowdown on a city so you can have a great day out. This time, semi-professional baby wrangler Selina shares her perfect day out with a bubba in Brixton, South London.
So I’ve moved to the tropics, where it’s perpetually set to summer. My signature dishes of slow-cooked rabbit stew, roasted pork belly and pheasant pie – which were on high rotation during our life in London – are just a bit OTT in 32 degree heat.
