Best lamb liver with caramelised onion & grapes

lamb_liver_with_grapes_2

We’ve all heard that including more offal in our diet is not only nutritionally beneficial but is also good for the planet, yet our squeamishness and perhaps our lack of previous offal cooking experience often stops us from trying things like chicken liver and sweetbreads. However, cooking lambs liver or chicken hears  are easier than you think and can be very delicious if you know what to pair them with. [Read more…]

Sometimes it’s just a few raw vegetable sticks with a dip but usually I have a big, crunchy salad with a fabulous dressing and some protein for lunch. I love the freshness and textures of raw veggies and don’t even get me started on all the nutritional benefits of live enzymes and antioxidants.
