Time to Get Creative in the Kitchen

Life is different for everyone at the moment and over the next week I will be providing posts on a range of topics that my help some of us get through this difficult time. This post will start with getting creative in the kitchen as food is very close to my heart and often a source of comfort.


Lets start with cookbooks. I’m not recommending any to buy right now but if you have any at home this is the perfect time to finally try out those recipes you’ve always wanted to. Even just having a flick through for inspiration can be fun.

Online there are also a wide variety of sources to choose from, many of which are free. Below I have put some of my recent favourites which are really easy to follow.
