For this photoshoot we were at The Hide, a truly unique property just near Perranporth here in Cornwall. For this recipe I wanted a tranquil and calming location to emulate how eating this cake makes you feel… The Hide certainly didn’t disappoint.

Vegan Shortbread with Unique Home Stays

Vegan Shortbread with Unique Home Stays

For this recipe we were lucky enough to be baking in "Firefly" a traditional, woodcutters hut, transformed into a luxury haven, hidden away in the heart of the Cornish countryside. The beautifully rustic interiors are built with natural materials, curious trinkets and an overwhelming sense of style and luxury.  As we drove through the meandering back-roads and approached the property immersed in rural charm it felt like we were on the set of a Modern day western! For this shoot we selected some key props from the beautifully eclectic MMW, a boutique fashion and homeware store in Newquay.

Torta Do Santiago at Scorrier House Estate

Torta Do Santiago at Scorrier House Estate

Last week I was lucky enough to visit the beautiful Scorrier House and it’s surrounding grounds, which happen to be the venue for this weekends Great Estate Festival. The recipe I’m baking is for torta do Santiago which a super light flourless almond sponge cake with the fresh flavours of lemon & orange and is also free from gluten and dairy. The beautiful stately home “Scorrier House” has its very own orangery where I had the privilege of picking some of their home grown fruit to use in my recipe.
