Did you know, according to Elizabeth Serrell of Wells in Her Receipts and Remedies, 1747, Islinglass is a form of gelatine, made either from bones or hides – or the air bladders of the sturgeon.

I have been so lucky as to travel to France and Italy over the past few weeks.

I have some new recipes from Florence White’s book ready to post in the next couple of days, so look out for the updates on the site.

I fly out to Australia in two weeks, but before I leave, I’ll treat  you to some delicious and surprising ways to prepare vegetables, from antiquity.

Happy New Year!
