Cooking: 1 hour 15 minutes


3 eggs
150g brown sugar
200ml vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe: Chicken with Pomegranate and Honey

By Silvia Nacamulli, August 28, 2015

Pomegranate and honey are symbols of a prosperous and sweet new year. I prefer chicken on the bone, but you can use boneless thighs. You will need to reduce the cooking time by 10-15 minutes if you do. A non-stick frying pan gives the best results - the chicken won't stick, it will keep in juices and will need less oil for cooking.

Serves: 4
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour

Pasta with seabass, tomato and chili

By Silvia Nacamulli, August 20, 2015

Try this pasta dish and you'll find yourself making it again and again. I like to use fresh egg fettuccine which is filling and nutritious but it can also be made with regular dried wheat pasta.

● 4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
● 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced

Fermented foods are brilliant for increased gut health and overall wellness. This wonderful noodlekraut not only tastes great but will flood your body with beneficial probiotics; the good bacteria that help to heal the gut. Use this recipe to experiment with other vegetables and styles of noodle. In the picture I have used cucumber and turnip with different spiralizer blades.

Recipe: Honey & Co's Tunisian maakouda

August 12, 2015

A traditional dish for Tunisian Jews, this is usually made by cooking the potatoes and onions in a pot of oil, then pouring the eggs in and placing the whole thing in the oven with a tray underneath to catch the oil overflow. While the original tastes gorgeous, we could not justify making it that way. We offer this lighter (no less gorgeous) version.

Fills an 18-20cm frying pan


Raw chocolate sugar-free truffles

By Jodie Brandman, August 6, 2015

This is a great recipe for getting a chocolate fix without reaching for that nasty sugar. Cacao is chocolate in its pure, unrefined state and is packed with antioxidants. The protein in pecans will keep you feeling fuller for longer and coconut is just an all-round miracle worker - coconut has been found to speed up metabolism and boost the immune system, and is great for healthy skin and hair.
