food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

Here on Food To Glow it is usually me, me, me. That is the perk of a blog. No boss leaning in to tell you what to do, to criticise your coffee-making/fetching skills, to take credit for your work. It is whatever you want it to be. No one has to read you of course, …

Bacalao, bacalhau, salted cod: whatever you call it, this is lovely stuff. Although we no longer need to salt food to preserve it, bacalhau is a gorgeous and still useful relic from an age before refrigeration. I first had bacalao many years ago at – of all places – a Scottish-French restaurant. It was in a …

I love breakfast. No, make that I LOVE BREAKFAST. It is without question my favourite meal. As you can tell from this blog I love other meals too. A lot. But breakfast is sine qua non to my daily happiness. Although it is rarely elaborate, and often involving no equipment other than a knife and hot overhead …

Just a quick – for me – post for you today. A simple, but deeply nourishing and seasonal soup to warm you up on this ‘bonnie, bricht bit awfie cauld’ day. Translation: ‘beautiful, bright but awfully cold’ day. I am slipping into old Scots vernacular for a reason. Tomorrow, the 25th of January, is the birthday celebration …

You are not going mad. Yes, you have seen this before. I posted this recipe in September of last year. But it is so delicious that I am reprising it for a competition sponsored by Destinology, a luxury travel firm here in the UK. The idea of the challenge is to create a twist on a national recipe …

I don’t know if you anthropomorphise food, but I think of sweet potatoes as humble sorts of chaps. The chaps who turn up for work and don’t raise a fuss, just quietly get the job done. An essential job done. In terms of American football (bear with me), I see these jolly orange tubers, with their rough skins, as fullbacks or …

Greetings from Anna Maria Island, Florida, named by readers of Conde Nast Travel magazine as home to one of the best beaches in the world. The small evil bit in me had wished so much to be able to write something along the lines of “as I struggle to concentrate with the glare of the brilliant sun and …

Gah, I am feeling my age. Not because of the ‘ooft’ noise I make when attempting to sit in a low chair – I’ve been doing that for quite a while. Not because of the way I automatically cup my left ear in loud restaurants. No, it is because until today I had not heard of …

I am not a gadget geek, but I do love my spiralizer. It is so loved that it has quickly earned its place on the countertop, along with my Froothie blender and juicer, my Magimix and of course my kettle (20 years and still going!). I have a small kitchen, so this is quite the honour. …

I don’t know about you, but my spice cupboard{s} runneth over. Like the hall closet we had growing up, when I open the doors to my spice stash something inevitably jumps out. But now, instead of a balled up and rarely used coat falling at my feet, a bottle or jar finds itself in something I …
