It is official, Christmas is upon us! A glorious time of year – I absolutely adore the festive season! I love spending time with my nearest and dearest. I love making homemade gifts and cooking for a crowd. This year will be no different, and I am super excited that some of my family from Malaysia will be visiting!
Panna cotta is something that since I turned vegetarian, has largely been off the menu. But no more! I discovered something quite magical when I was doing my monthly shop – Vege Gel! This amazing sachet of powder is a vegetarian-friendly setting agent that can be used in both sweet and savoury recipes!
I had a carton of soya cream in my cupboard, along with some over-ripe strawberries and I knew what I had to do. It was panna cotta time…
A few years ago, I visited a food fair in London. At this fair, I stumbled across this wonderful little Greek stand. It was packed with plates of delicious Greek food, including this amazing pie made from spinach, feta and filo pasty. It was called Spanakopita and I was entranced.
