I’d like to firstly state that this review is not sponsored, and thus my passion for E5 bakehouse is not exaggerated – I genuinely think this place does the best sourdough in London.
Yes, I got straight to the point.

It’s not the first time I cried over cake. Things go wrong in the kitchen – an oven you’re not used to, a scale that’s out of battery, ingredients that go off, and you’re not attentive and you misread, you mismeasure, you misunderstand it all – and you fail. Now, it’s not that you’ve made a cake that’s a bit flat, that tastes a bit bland or looks a bit odd, because you’re more than disappointed. Maybe it’s the end of a long already-bad day. Or maybe it’s a surprising end to an exceptionally good day. Either way it all goes tumbling down and you’re overwhelmed with the sense of worthlessness and incompetency because you can’t even make a simple apple cake. Continue reading “Rustic Apple Cake”

Hi, how are you? You’re reading the first ever post on fork this. You may or may not know, but I had another blog, Happy Belly, and after 5 years of that I’ve decided to do a more… “grown-up” blog..? “Proper”, “mature”, “sophisticated” – I don’t really know what adjective I’m looking for. Making it”grown-up”, however, has been a process of immense stress and frustration. I should have done more research before I just dived in with my credit card. With the first blog it all seemed to just fall into place, like I don’t recall spending days on finding the right font.
Anyway, here I am with a fresh start! Continue reading “Preserved Lemon & Sumac Risotto”
