I love this recipe for Gratin Dauphinois by Florence Rebattet, chef, founder of En Cuisine Cooking School, and finalist of Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Future Food Stars’ (series 2). Potatoes are a typical English comfort food. And in France Gratin Dauphinois is also a winter staple. Here, Flo uses a Family recipe from Grenoble, including the warming ingredients of garlic and nutmeg. Includes step-by-step recipe photos and a “little chef tip”.
For many London Mums, living in the midst of a city, no matter what area they occupy, is second nature. There’s certainly an adjusted flow of life in an urban area compared to much of the country, but that doesn’t mean you have it worse off. In fact, having access to all of the modern-day conveniences, living on the cutting edge, ensuring your children are closer to job opportunities, all of this can be wonderful.
However, not everyone is used to the hustle and bustle of a big city. So, if your lifestyle plans have adjusted and you’re planning to move to a brand spanking new environment like this, it can be rewarding to know how to adjust. Sure, this might take longer than a 500-word article for you to deal with, but in this post, we’ll try and help you achieve a few simple steps to get started with your move.
This way, you can make the most of your new opportunities, and thrive in your wonderful new environment. We’re sure the city will be happy to have you.

When planning your trip to the beautiful lake district it is important to respect the natural environment of this stunning part of the country. Not only is the area home to many locals and natural wildlife but it is also well maintained by those who care for the area and the environment. Making sure to plan your stay so that you respect all those that call the area home will ensure not only that you have an enjoyable visit but also the residents are not impacted by your visit.
Coping with curls – bane or blessing – Oh for straight hair that does as it’s told. ‘Why? Curls are adorrrable’, you say. Because. The first rule of natural curls is: there IS no rule. No consistency across your scalp, and no two are the same. I get corkscrews framing my face, but at the back I’m blessed with scrub. Nor do my ringlets bond in the same way on any two given days. We live in dread of the humid, just as hayfever sufferers fear pollen; humid means loss of control, and your cat-walk blow-dry lasting all of 10 minutes outside. So your coiff is a surprise pretty much every time you catch sight of yourself, a disappointing surprise.
