Similar to most of the nation, our team at BLG have been cooking and baking up a storm in recent months and we thought we would share with you some of the delicious recipes that we have been enjoying.

Tell us your recipe
Cauliflower, Pomegranate and Pistachio Salad
Where did this recipe come from?
Ottolenghi Simple. I have many cookbooks from the latest health food guru to the traditional chef – my learning is that the best tasting food is almost always from the chef with a restaurant. Some of the latest fads may be healthy but generally lack flavour. Recipes from good chefs almost always tastes great and their “Simple” or “5 ingredients” recipes work ; Jamie, Nigella, Slater, Ramsay. Ottolenghi is my current favourite.
If you could cook this for anyone, who would it be?
