I've been promising this review for a couple of days and have finally got round to it. Its been really busy time at work with some exciting projects on the go but also a sad time as this week saw my fabulous partner in crime leave for a new job so I'm a lone soldier for the time being. Anyway, lets get on with it - this post is all about one thing. PIZZA.

We are big meat eaters but I do like to cook vegetarian dishes at least once a week to try and balance our diets. We love Indian food and the Prashad coobook is a firm favourite of mine! In fact, its already featured on the blog with their Aloo Gobi and Jeera Baath.

When we told our family and friends that we were heading over to East Midlands airport for a night away they all thought we were mad but actually, after having been invited to spend the night at the Thistle hotel there, we were very pleasantly surprised.

Last week the wonderful folk at Woodlands Organic Farm sent me an organic veg box to try and I was thrilled to see some broad beans in there amongst carrots, potatoes, peppers, lollo rosso and gorgeous baby red onions. Broad beans are in season for such a short time so you have to get them whilst you can! These beauties were a cracking example - creamy pale green and deliciously fresh as I popped them from their velvety beds.

I loved Two Greedy Italians when it was on TV last year, Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo are hilarious together and made us laugh every week. Of course I had to get their book and use it all the time! As you might know if you read my blog regularly, I am a big fan of Italian food, having visited Tuscany several times with my parents who stay with friends every year in this beautiful villa not far from Lucca. I love everything but most of all, the food and love cooking Italian meals at home!
