Today's Featured Recipe on Fats of Life:

Artichoke & Creamy Burrata Salad

This is a quick, easy and truly delicious salad using char-grilled artichokes, which can be found in the shelves in stores where all the chilled antipasti goodies are kept. They are smoky and lovely in a salad. This salad serves 4 as a side dish, but could easily be enjoyed by two people as a meat-free main meal. I especially love the simple garlic dressing, but be sure to use crushed garlic (done using a garlic press) for the best flavour and texture. The scattering of chopped parsley will balance it all out nicely.

I have started shooting videos for the recipes on this site. Check out my Youtube channel here. I must warn you that they are patiently shot and edited by my hubby - and tensions run high when filming, making them worth a watch just for the blooper reel the bugger slips in at the end of each one!



I get asked A LOT which 'special' products I use or where I source them from. It's quite simple: I use Amazon. Over the years, I have tried many products, but tend to stick to those that give me consistently fabulous results. So, I created a handy page where you can see the exact products I use in my cooking and baking, both on this blog and in my books. I hope this helps...
