THE REAL IMPACT OF JUNK FOOD

As part of a series of talks, I’ve been speaking to the lovely members of Soho House. Whenever I go with friends or to present, I think about what a wonderful and beautiful space to spend time in.  The casual-y-hipster vibe certainly reminds me of why I love London.  Some of my past workshops have…

English black kale obsession from Staples British Farm!

Did you know that kale is one of the oldest brassicas proudly sitting alongside cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower?  The vegetable we know today is more than 2,000 years old and until the end of the Middle Ages, kale was one of the most common green vegetables eaten across Europe.  At Maple & Co,…

Going Natural with Wines and Beers

Looking around King’s Cross, we are surrounded by fabulous bustling late night bars and summer patios and while I love to eat well and stay active, I’ve also always enjoyed a delicious glass of wine. What I have noticed however is that there is a rising demand for natural wines and beers free from animal…

Glowing summer skin starts from the inside…

Training for better running!

We’ve recently spent a lovely Sunday morning with one of our most favourite super people – Tameka Small.  We love working out with her whether it’s at the new experimental studio Factory 45 or with one of her pop-ups at Maple & King’s.  Her energy is infectious and she makes working out fun so when we…

How and Why to Give Tofu a Try!

I’ve had some insanely busy past few weeks but I always enjoy preparing delicious and easy Buddha bowls – this time it’s with Tofu!   Many people don’t like tofu mainly because tofu on its own has little to no taste. I’ve grown up eating tofu and eating all types of tofu (yes, there are different types!)…

Rainbow Vegan Summer Rolls

My Maple Valentines…

Although Valentine’s can be a bit cliche, I still love it! It’s a great reason to enjoy delicious food with friends, family and loved ones and enjoy some chocolate, strawberries and roses. Below are the sweet and savoury strawberry recipes I shared on this week’s Sunday Brunch show. This Valentine’s week is a particularly special…

Cosy up Après-Ski Canadian Style

We had been planning the Canadian Après Ski segment on Sunday Brunch including all the recipes, set design and even my outfit but we could have never planned the SNOW! Yes, it snowed in London, England and it was perfectly beautiful to go with with your Ski themed show. Here are my favourite recipes from…
