a cook who writes

Every weekend for twenty-seven years I have sat at my kitchen table and written a column for The Observer. Part recipe journal, part kitchen chronical, each story has, at its heart, a recipe I have cooked during the week that I feel I would like to share. Here is a selection of those columns, personal, practical, often a little eccentric, an archive of recipes and journalism from the Guardian website. (🌿) Denotes recipes without meat or fish.  Recipes are developed in collaboration with James Thompson.
