If you go down in the woods today you're sure of a big surprise - the gorgeous smell of wild garlic! One of my favourite scents at this time of year, and a perfect ingredient in risottos, salads, pesto... Go for a forage this weekend and look out for the green leaves topped with white flowers in moist, semi-shaded woodland.

This news on peanut allergy might be a real step forward in reducing the incidence of potentially deadly allergic reactions. No one had a nut allergy when I was at school, or any other allergy for that matter (apart from my bro who had dairy issues, poor boy, no chocolate) - something has gone wrong somewhere. Hopefully the medics are on the right path to figuring it out.
I went to TEDx Warwick on Saturday and saw a great talk by The Real Junk Food Project's founder Adam Smith. Inspirational project that uses food waste from local food banks, restaurants etc and turns it into meals for the local community, using a 'pay as you feel' concept. Top guy.
