The Victoria Sponge cake or Sandwich cake has to be one of my favourite ‘white’ cakes ever. My dear friend, Alexia makes one of the best I have tasted. I sorely miss her now she’s living in London but I must admit I miss her baking just the same. My version, which I whipped up […]
Easter in Cyprus is very much about traditions so there really isn’t any better place to celebrate this time of year than up in the mountains at Georgie’s grandparents summer house in the village.

This is my first In The Kitchen from my new kitchen, you guys! I have been cooking almost everyday, making very good use of my super stove and fully stocked pantry and I must admit it feels good. Organization definitely becomes me. One morning I scooped up my little dude and decided to get messy. […]
