In this issue

Formula 1 fever & seduction

October was a busy month: I papped F1 race cars, lounged in luxe hotels, watched football from yachts while slurping oysters and shared my favourite Storehouse staple, Seggiano honey. I even dreamt up seasonally seductive recipes and updated this blog to include Featured Post tabs, along with a Travel and Reviews page. Don’t ever say I’m not dedicated. I hope my labours meet with your approval!

Formula 1 Fever 2013

When it comes to restaurants, socialising and style, I sit firmly on the side of fuss-free, ‘authentic’ quality. Fluff, glitz and bling aren’t my thing.

Aubergine, chilli & coriander salsa

I dreamt up this salsa after 4 months of craving raw, crunchy salads in India. There’s nothing I like more than fish and spice but there comes a point when even the most dedicated curry fans need to macerate. So, said recipe materialised on a Middle East stopover at my bother’s, where aubergines are as integral to the local diet as tatties are to the Irish. Once charred or roasted, few ingredients compare to the flavour and ‘meatiness’ of this super berry . For me, this salad’s at it’s best with steak or at a BBQ. You can also pair with chicken, fish or even toasted sourdough for a light lunch or supper.

Seasonal Seducer: Aubergine

Most attractive features
This berry (yup) is a great source of fibre, B1 and B6. It’s an impressive antioxidant and, it’s purple. I quite like purple.

From the streets: Seggiano acacia honey

God of taste: flavour and design, Seggiano sourcing is impeccable; scouring the land for the best Italy has to offer. This cold pressed, unfiltered and unpasteurized honey is bottled by beekeeper, Mauro Pagliaccia in Tuscany. The result: Ambrosia that compels you to never again torture your taste buds with the supermarket stuff.
