At this time of year I want meals that will act in stark contrast to the pomp of Christmas, and for that I turn to American food and coffee.
I like to re-centre and keep January as my “start as you mean to go on” month, and I use my LA experience to inspire me.
This hearty breakfast is reminiscent of classic apple pie and will equip you with vitality for these cold winter days.
Take your pick of Jody’s incredible sweet potato and ricotta or coconut and banana pancakes. Or try both – we wouldn’t hold it against you.
January is the perfect time to do lots of batch cooking of all your favourite soups, stews, pies and ragùs that you can then freeze.
It’s no longer all burgers and fries in the US, but instead there’s a fresh, vibrant and evolving food culture they can be proud of.
If you’re doing Dry January or if you just fancy mixing it up with some tasty alcohol-free recipes, then look no further.
Olley’s are a fabulous example of what can be achieved by a restaurant with determination, vision and willingness to learn.
