Exotic Spiced Yoghurt with Rhubarb and Cardamom Bread

This is the marraige of some of my favourite flavours to create a delicious, light and luxurious breakfast.  Its main feature is cardamom thanks to my recent exploration of Sophie Grigson’s book, Spices, but with a beautiful balance of other spices that leave your palate delighted but not overwhelmed. Serve a small bowl of Exotic…

Fetta, Olive & Yoghurt Dip

The flavours of this dip held particular appeal to me as I love feta cheese and olives.  The result was a little different to what I expected with the it being quite salty.  Not the recipe’s fault, more that it highlights the importance of selecting a feta cheese that you particularly love.  In this case…
