Chocolate Beetroot Cupakes

These Chocolate Beetroot Cupcakes have the most delicious Crème Fraiche Ganache slathered on top of them. The Crème Fraiche adds a tanginess to the ganache which I think tastes so much better than using double cream. The cupcakes are sweet and the ganache is sweet as well so you need another flavour to cut through all the sweetness and the sourness of the Crème Fraiche does the job perfectly. And luckily there is a bit of ganache left over which…

Beet, Avo and Pea Salad

This Beet, Avo and Pea Salad is one of those salad I have to confess I only tried as I wanted to photograph it.
