Last week for my
‘Food on Fridays’ column I cooked a vegetarian tart with, courgette, sweet corn, spinach and tomato, in puff pastry. It was delicious and the best part, it was ready in less than half an hour.
I also mention why sometimes
tinned fruit and veg, are sometimes better than what we consider as fresh alternatives.
Oh, and for dessert the simplest fruit tarts you will ever see. I hope you try cooking them and enjoy them.

The moment all of you, well some of you, have been waiting for….. The ‘
Doggy bag’ poll results, has arrived.
First of all, I would like to
thank all of you for voting, on my poll it was very insightful.
A few weeks ago I read an article by
Susie Mesure in The Independent website, about how much food do restaurants throw away, and although is nothing new, it got me thinking why is there so much waste. Then after a little bit of research I found an article on The Evening Standard by Priscilla Pollara where they say that ‘Doggy Bags are so tomorrow’.

Food waste may be something that you hear about constantly but Media outlets keep on talking about it, because it
KEEPS HAPPENING. For that reason I am now ranting: Stop buying more than you need!
Martin Hickman wrote an article for the Independent saying: “Britain throws away £10bn of food every year.”
You would have thought that those reports would be enough to make a change? Well, it appears that not much has changed.
Rebecca Smithers, wrote for The Guardian that 7.2m tonnes of food that is thrown away annually could have been eaten. Where as Anna-Louise Taylor, wrote for the BBC that 4.4m tonnes of that comes from British Households.

Alight in Farringdon, London station and you will find yourself surrounded by restaurants.
But carry on walking up Cowcross Street almost by the corner of St John Street, and you could be in for a treat at Attilio Ristorante.
It is midday and my Italian friend joins me for lunch, she is here to share her insightful opinion.
As we go through the glass doors we are charmed by a traditional looking trattoria and an Italian, with Roman roots, who lead us to our table.

Welsh marketeers came to the Southbank centre’s Real Food Market bringing Wales True Taste with them today.
Fabio Diu, Festivals & Market Manager, said: “We see around 10,000 people coming to the Real Food Market every weekend.” The stalls were certainly crowded with people, among them many Welsh, who came to sample “
the best of Welsh produce,” with great cheeses, unusual venison and hazelnut terrines, and other typical foods.
