London Student Magazine

A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to an interview at the headquarters of London Student Magazine – for those who don’t know that means the Student Union of the University of London! It was good to be on university grounds again and talk about what I love best with people who share that passion (Helena and Eve – check out her blog here). Below is the video of the interview – I hope you enjoy!

Cherry Turnovers

So it’s been a while, but I’ve been baking a lot – trust me. I had this crazified idea to make my own puff pastry, you know like one of those life aims (although it wasn’t that high up on the list but relatively easy to achieve), but I decided to take it a little further, not only would I make my own puff pastry but I would make something with it – crazy right?! The following recipe was a winner with my flatmates and I think is a cool take on the traditional apple turnover. I’ll be honest and tell you the first time I made them they were too sweet for me but I reduced the sugar content and they are delish. Ironically I’ve suggested using shop-bought puff pastry as I don’t think making it was quite worth the effort (more time-consuming than tiring, mind you) and you’ll get more consistent results using the ready-made stuff. But if your heart so desires give home-made puff pastry a go, you might just surprise yourself! 😉 Click here for the recipe
