Drop Dead Delicious Sesame Ice Cream

Fritter & Loaf has been annoying me lately. And it’s not even the dismal half-year intervals between posts. What’s niggling at my conscience at this particularly moment, is our page’s now somewhat problematic name. Fritter & Loaf was born as a place where Seb and I could document our love of food (with unspoken hopes of high-profile magazine features and snazzy dinner invitations – neither of which would ever transpire), but has somehow evolved over […]

Cooking with beer, on the other hand, has always been a foreign concept to me. Despite the […]

I have a confession to make. Contrary to popular belief of those who know me, I’m not actually the biggest fan of baking. Gasp! I just don’t find it relaxing, which is pretty much the whole reason I like being in the kitchen in the first place. The precision required to prevent a baking flop is nail-bitingly stressful for many, including me. Cooking, on the other hand, allows you to throw just about anything into […]
