What I eat when dining out often inspires a lot of my home cooking. The new ingredients I decide to experiment with, the flavour combos, the style.

I recently had a delicious cauliflower salad, and so have started roasting my own spiced cauliflower at home to add to salads, main dishes, or a delicious vegetable cous cous, which I’ve been having for lunch at work – don’t worry, the recipe is on it’s way.
