Though I can’t say I’ve got over my term one fatigue just yet, I feel I have my cooking mojo back at long last. Thank heavens. I’ve been staring at the same squash and the same block of halloumi for weeks now and have had absolutely no idea what to do with them at all.
Then yesterday (my 32nd birthday – not 33rd as I’d thought!) I got Nigel Slater’s new book, Tender, and ideas/inspiration came flooding back. Haven’t actually made anything from Tender yet but I’m very thankful Mr S for getting me out of the rut with his consistently gorgeous recipes and ever soothing chat.
Love ya, Nigel!
