recipe-my whole fruit marshmallows

Here is my signature recipe for light and fluffy raspberry marshmallows. One of the great pleasures of making marshmallows is that their delicate texture allows you to play with flavour combinations in whatever way tickles your fancy. Playing with new tastes and pairing fruits with herbs, spices and even vegetables is how to become a true Marshmallowist. Once you have mastered this basic recipe, you can go on to dream up your own flavours....

Pancake Day Recipe

Pancake Day Recipe

Yup it's Pancake Day tomorrow- a chance to use up all your eggs, milk and flour before Lent… OR to whip up a huge stack of fluffy carby decadence and smother them in fun…on a Tuesday.  I will gladly take any opportunity to eat a pancake, a crepe, a buckwheat galettes or anything similar. This recipe is for my ‘weekend’ pancakes.

Cocktails and Mallow Dreams

I’m so into Valentines at the moment. I’ve really come full circle on this… I love joyful shop displays of bright florals, I love the big breath of crisp newness it brings, I love how it’s moved from being quite a rigidly heterosexual celebration of romance to just being a big celebration of love. From galentines to self-love. Just love. Oh, and cocktails and nice desserts. And I just love cocktails and dessert.

Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream Marshmallowist Recipe

Toasted Marshmallow Ice-Cream

Phew! What a scorcher. We're looking for any excuse to get out of the kitchen this week and we've got just the recipe to do it. Yup, toasted marshmallow ice cream. All the very best of summer joys from smoky festival campfires to sun speckled beaches- churned into each indulgent lick. I use an ice cream maker to whip this up- but it is also pretty easy to make by hand, you just need a fork and some wrists that fancy a work out.
