welcome to november

The Olive office can get quite rowdy on occasion and that’s because sometimes the food is just so good that it needs to be shouted about. This issue’s front cover is one such recipe. I can solemnly swear that Edd Kimber’s black and blue crumble pie is the best fruit pie I have EVER tasted (sorry, nan). Edd’s nailed the pastry – it’s a seriously multi-tasking flaky pie dough, featuring a secret ingredient. He’s got that sharp-sweet balance of fruit just right. And he’s also had the genius to add a crunchy, sweet, spiced crumble on top, too. In other words, if you’re going to make one recipe from this issue, make this. I implore you. It’s incredible. And, on top of all that, he has four other deliciously autumnal…

For those of a certain age (and you know who you are) that nostalgic smell of charred cheese and cheap bread during the witching hour will be a familiar one. Post-student union, there were few things more comforting than some sliced white, butter (never margarine) and grated cheddar, toasted until golden and oozy. But, of course, we mature (as does our taste in cheddar, among other things) and times move on. That is until you…

I adore peanut butter and this Knead salted caramel number is one of my all- time favourites. It’s great simply spread on toast, but I also love it in a satay. My friend Pritesh runs World of Zing, and I can always count on him to provide me with something that will test my taste buds. This Mexican cactus & chilli sea salt not only brings out the flavours of a dish, but also adds a delicious kick. I’ve recently got into making sourdough after a class at Bread Ahead in Borough Market, and have become hooked. The starter takes around a week to make, but once it’s done it just needs to be fed about once every two weeks. Sambal Shiok is run by a good friend of mine, Mandy – she’s…
