Salted Dark Chocolate + Vanilla Bean Cookies

I don’t think much needs to be said here. Big gooey chunks of dark chocolate, soft vanilla salt-flecked dough, rolled into rounds and baked in the oven for less time than it takes to fiddle around trying to open a packet of biscuits from the shops. I’m not a big-time cookie lover, rarely do I … Continue reading

Blood Orange + Chocolate Tart

My Blood Orange and Chocolate Tart is an ode to all things fresh, lovely and carefree. Seeing a pyramid of deep red, shiny-skinned blood oranges at the market the other day I couldn’t help but swoon. The smell, the texture, the colour – it was pure sensory overload and I had to, I just had … Continue reading

Roasted Cherry, Sticky Stem Ginger + Goats Cheese Tartines

As winter rolls around we seem to fall into a completely new rhythm. The days are shorter and we seek out foods that warm the heart as well as body.

Chocolate + Hazelnut Praline French Toast w/ Coffee Icecream

Certainly not the most virtuous recipe that I’ve ever shared on Finger, Fork & Knife – but is so right in so many other ways.
