Cranky about too-hard healthy eating advice!

Lately I've been getting a bit hot under the collar about so much 'healthy eating' advice which seems to be faddish, to be kind, and bordering on disordered, to be less charitable. 

I wrote a column about this for the HFG e-newsletter. It's here.

New vege: Butterkin!

I was given a delicious new variety of pumpkin, Butterkin, at a recent event. It is super sweet, rich and delicious.

To celebrate its gorgeous flavour, I made a risotto with roasted Butterkin, Brussels sprouts, sage, rocket and Parmesan. My meat-loving husband declared it restaurant-worthy! Which is very very unlike him for a vegetarian dish. Winner all round, I think.
