Roast pumpkin and honey soup

What kind of week has it been? Clear skies and gradually turning leaves. Satisfying uses of leftovers and vegetables. A collapsed apple cake. A better tea loaf. Chewy cookies. Browned gratins. Fish pie. I think I’m turning into a series of Ruth Reichl tweets. But I think Autumn tends to do that to me: turns each snapshot of the day into a little word picture.


Without a recipe:

  • Tomato pasta
  • Chicken stir-fry
  • Pizza with courgette, mushrooms and bacon
  • Courgette gratin – the courgette plant is still going!

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
