Blanche Vaughan  Mainly what I'm cooking and eating | Food Editor for House & Garden magazine @houseandgardenuk | EGG, my latest cook book is out now.

Quick Sunday morning show off.. my 2nd attempt at sourdough. The first was a disaster but this is a result!! The secret: I stopped reading all the complicated recipe books and followed the instructions on the back of a flour packet I bought from @e5bakehouse I’m sure the quality of the flour helped too, although I did use some rye too, just because I like the flavour. It’s got a lovely chewy crust and it’s tasting v good with my homemade marmalade. #evangelical #sourdoughbeginner #e5bakehouse #goodflour

Row upon row of temptations in #Demel Quite frankly with packaging this attractive I don’t even really mind what the chocolate tastes like. Well, to a point. In the meantime I’m just about to devour a few mini Sacher Tortes for tea... #artmakesmehungry #vienna #cakes

These little pink numbers, of which I’ve just gobbled two in a row, are mini babas, saturated in rum and contained in a crisp icing shell. So good. #vienna #afterlunchtreat #zumschwarzenkameel arwze

I am over the moon 💫that @natoora has opened a new shop on my doorstep. Right now Natoora are the most exciting and impressive purveyors of fresh, impeccably sourced vegetables and fruit (as well as other fresh grocery goods). They make it their mission to find out who grows the best (I have visited one of the farms recently and it’s the real deal)then they curate it in their beautiful shop for their customers to enjoy. It’s such a welcome antidote to mass produced, out of season vegetables and the quality is what makes it stand above the rest. There are now 3 shops in London or you can buy some of the produce via Ocado. #natoora #vegetable #revolution

Squash sampling at #lunch Delicata and Acorn get top marks. Sweet and firm but not too floury and hints of vanilla (Delicata) and chestnut (Acorn) #squash #nerd 😬🤓🧐 @chagfood

Beauty in the fields this morning @chagfood my local community farm in #Devon Needless to say it’s organic and all the produce tastes excellent. Especially as it only comes to my kitchen from a 1 mile radius! #organic #sustainable #cabbages #galore

If you make it to #friezelondon be sure to go at lunchtime! All of the best restaurants have pop ups there this year. Yesterday I had an excellent lunch at @restaurantmoro and today my other favourite @xu_london Sometimes I wonder if it was the art to went for 🤔🍽😂

This month’s @houseandgardenuk food pages are looking beautifully autumnal 🍁🍂 with my Devon weekend recipes 📸 by @montgomeryphoto Needless to say I will be cooking most of these dishes this weekend using all the wonderful produce around at the moment 🍎🍂🎃🧡 #followingmyowninstructions #seasonal #cookingathome #houseandgarden #autumn

Sunday in the potting shed 🍂🍁🧡🎃

Beautiful produce being packed for the Thursday delivery for #Chagfood members. It’s getting late in the season but these guys still have masses to harvest. These are the ingredients I’ll be cooking with this weekend #organic #local #myfavouriteplace #chagfood #chagfarm #csa #sunnydays

Tomatoes growing in the gardens of @heckfield_place which will eventually be cooked and served in the hotel’s Marle restaurant, under the guidance of @skyegyngell. This (Equinox) weekend was packed with activities, talks and tours as part of the ongoing Assembly events at Heckfield. A deeply comfortable, beautifully designed and decorated hotel which will soon have a full biodynamic farm by @fernverrow producing food for the restaurant. Surely the most exciting place to have opened this year. #sustainable #luxury #biodynamicfarming #heckfieldplace

On Saturday 22nd September, during equinox weekend ✨I will be in discussion with @skyegyngell (the pic is her not me!) about The Value of Food and why it is the soil that defines good food. Also with @rorysfood founder of Ballymaloe Cookery school and @allanjenkins21 Editor of @obsfood .
