Being a child of the seventies and eighties, I’m a natural sucker for a French onion soup. The thrill of seeing molten cheese on a floating toast was (and still is) my idea of heaven, married with the umami rich depth of the ‘oniony’ broth it was unlike anything I […]
Gem’s Vegan Sausage Roll I couldn’t believe the other day when using up some pastry from the freezer that I’d bought for Christmas, that it was inadvertently vegan. Who knew that the buttery tasting, flaky pastry was in fact sans animal products? Don’t you just love discovering an unlikely item […]
I love the way that baking, and lockdown have become natural bed fellows. For a lot of people busy with everyday life, there just doesn’t seem to always be the time to bake. But during lockdown when time stretches out endlessly in front of us, baking provides the perfect distraction. […]
This recipe is a great and most delicious way to use up slightly unripe avocados. This recipe won’t work with ‘bullet hard’ avocados though, those avos will have to cuddle up with some bananas for a little while to speed up the process! Simply by deep frying avocados in a […]
Autumn has always been my very favourite season; in fact, I don’t think I could live in a country that didn’t produce a technicolour autumn. There’s just something so special about digging out a cosy sweater and taking a long walk to admire the riot of gold and scarlet hues […]

Once said by the iconic actress Sophia Loren: “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti”. If only that were true for me! I don’t think there is ever a day that I don’t fancy pasta, and I guarantee you it hasn’t made me look as drop dead gorgeous as La […]
One of the oldest dishes at Gastrono-me is our Mushrooms on toast. It’s delicious, familiar and I chose it to share it with you because it can be recreated from home so easily. I absolutely adore mushrooms, and as a vegetarian before Quorn and or other meat substitutes came about, […]
The rules and landscape of the restaurant scene in recent weeks have literally moved faster than a tyre change in an F1 pit lane. First, we were closed down abruptly on March 23rd a day that never in our wildest dreams we could’ve predicted. And along with most restaurateurs we […]
Thank you for visiting Gem with Relish. With your immense powers of deduction, you’ve probably worked out by now that I’m Gem. So why with relish?
