Simple Things are often the best - August 2017

SIMPLE THINGS ARE OFTEN THE BEST - AUGUST 2017 I have just returned from a charity trip to Kenya where I was one of a group running a week long summer camp for hundreds of children, in one of the many desperately poor communities around Kisumu, near Lake Victoria. I have been there before but even so I found it shocking seeing how they live – their homes are tiny mud huts, often dilapidated and with no electricity, hunger and dehydration are not uncommon, their clothes are generally threadbare, and many of the children have no shoes yet they often have to walk miles to get to school. Interestingly, and possibly because they...

Scorching weekend ahead! - June 2017

Scorching weekend ahead - June 2017 I was amazed when I realized that it has been nearly three months since I last sent a mailshot, but I seem to have been very busy one way or another. Our building project at home has finally finished and it is so great – I am loving the new kitchen, and my Aga  - I thought I'd share a pic! When I last wrote we were just heading off to Cuba, the land of music, salsa and mangoes.  Then in May we had Lizi’s 21st, and a surprise trip to Morocco.  So spoiling!  High points of...

Autumn, conkers and quinces - October 2016

AUTUMN, CONKERS AND QUINCES -OCTOBER 2016 One of the joys of the manic fair season getting underway again is that I really enjoy seeing so many familiar faces.  Working on my own as I do, I always think of my fairs as “days in the office” – it’s just that the office is in a different place each day, and you never know who is going to be there.  I don’t have to stay away that often, but when I do I use it as a chance to catch up with some of my lovely friends around the country. This week...

20% off for 4 days - Happy Easter - March 2016

20% OFF FOR 4 DAYS - HAPPY EASTER! What a great duo lemon and olive oil are – as staples in so many dishes, or on their own, there is no denying they are delicious together. What better way to start the day than a breakfast of crusty baguette with Fino extra virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt – when in Spain do as the Spanish do – it’s certainly what we have for breakfast when we are there, with lemons picked fresh from the trees! Easter is just around the corner but...

Oil I want for christmas - December 2015

Oil I want for Christmas - December 2015 Firstly a big thank you to all you loyal Fino customers who have helped make 2015 a great year. Lots of you are often complimentary about the recipes I have on the website . For me simplicity is key so these "nibbles" fit the bill perfectly, and to make them extra simple I have used canapé cups which are brilliant (alternatively use bruschetta for the savoury ones and if you are being perfect you could make your own pastry for the mincepies!)  It really is as simple as making the filling and...
