Blackberry and goat’s cheese tart

Blackberry goats cheese tart 8

Blackberries summon up great memories for me. There’s nothing better than coming back from a walk in the woods with a basketful of blackberries, and fingertips stained bright purple (and your mouth too, if you’re lucky). Blackberries are in season at the moment, and since Rix are currently running a competition all about blackberries, I…

Prasorizo (Greek rice with leeks)

It’s taken me so long to learn the name of this Greek side dish. I made it weeks ago and ever since, I’ve had to look up the name of it every time I think about it. It bugs me so much when I can’t remember something. Buuut the name has finally stuck – prasorizo!…
