A slice of oozy creamy brie sat on top of a piece of Smyrna sun-dried quince and I was in heaven. As I stood there savouring every last morsel I cold feel the ideas blooming in my mind. Walnuts! Yes, walnuts! What if I was to put these three things together - the quinc...

The container of melted butter was carefully placed onto the kitchen bench. The creaky timber swing door opened and a whispered voice said "Do you need this?"

I was first introduced to these buttery, almond meal delights at the café I worked at when we first moved to Ry...
