Sturdy, homemade corn tortillas, gluten free and gorgeousMy blog was born in a pokey little kitchen in a suburb of Paris. And when I say pokey I mean stupidly small.

Food photography and food allergies

Here are my toolsI've been reading Helene Dujardin's book Plate to Pixel about food photography.

Growing out of an egg allergy

A table laden with anaphylaxis? Or dinner?If you're old enough to remember Edwina Currie, then you know all about the propensity of eggs to bring about someone's downfall.
