CRUMBLE WITH TAMARILLOS POACHED IN RED WINE

Eleanor Ozich AUTUMN BREAKFAST SWEET DELIGHTS VIVA COLUMN WHOLESOME BAKING

CRUMBLE WITH TAMARILLOS POACHED IN RED WINE

  The loveliness of tamarillo eludes some people, although when sweetened with honey and poached in a light syrup of red wine, orange and star anise, the result is meltingly tender, and perfectly tangy. This is quite wonderful when spooned over thick, greek yoghurt, or topped with a buttery crumble and baked until bubbling. Find the recipe in this weeks column for VIVA. x Eleanor

PANZANELLA WITH OREGANO AND ANCHOVIES

Eleanor Ozich DINNER ENTERTAINING LUNCH SALADS VIVA COLUMN

PANZANELLA WITH OREGANO AND ANCHOVIES

Panzanella is one of those fantastic stand-alone salads, with serious robust flavours. It's a great way to embrace the end of season tomatoes, when they are soft-skinned and beautifully ripe. I've added lentils to make the salad a little more substantial, and a small handful of roasted seeds for a toasty crunch.The salad becomes even more delicious when it has been made a few hours ahead as something special happens to the flavours as they mingle and melt together. I've shared the recipe in my column for VIVA. Happy weekend, friends!. x Eleanor Gorgeous photo captured by Greta Kenyon.

BERRY AND VANILLA CLAFOUTIS / HOMEGROWN KITCHEN

Not so long ago, I had a rather exciting package arrive on my doorstep. Inside was a copy of Nicola Galloway's stunning new book Homegrown Kitchen, and let me tell you, it's absolutely beautiful! There are so many things I admire about Nicola's recipes and photography. To me, her food is the perfect balance of health and pleasure, with a down to earth approach that's inspired by the seasons. Nicola and I became friends about 4 years ago, when I first entered the world of blogging. We've been writing to each other ever since, and I'm so grateful for her warm words of encouragement, and...

COCONUT CHIA PUDDING WITH PASSIONFRUIT

COCONUT CHIA PUDDING WITH PASSIONFRUIT

I'm sure the world doesn't need another chia seed pudding recipe, but I couldn't help myself, as this variation is so easy (and pretty!). The recipe calls for coconut cream and a touch of maple, although just enough to enhance without being overly sweet. The most delicious inclusion, however, is a spoonful of fresh, tangy passionfruit. It's beautiful, vibrant and lusciously creamy, you might like to try it this weekend?
