welcome to march

It’s never too early for a hot cross bun. Sitting down with a buttery toasted one (see p26 for four game-changer recipes) while thinking ahead to the long Easter weekend is a delicious. moment. Easter is at the beginning of April this year – a hop and a skip away – so we’ve gone early and included bucketfuls of inspiration in this issue so you have time to mull over the recipes and plan what to cook. You might have gathered I’m looking forward to it. Before Easter there’s Mothering Sunday, when cake is hoped for, maybe expected and always appropriate. But what to make? On p66, Debora Robertson writes about the joys of plainer cakes that, these days, risk being upstaged by fancily decorated upstarts (the crèmes fatales – thank you,…

your delicious.

STAR EMAIL FROM: BETHAN MITCHELL We’re so glad we cooked your ‘instant joy’ recipe from the January issue [p7]. Arthur (four) and Annie (two) enjoyed making your crispy creamy Boursin mushrooms so much they’ve requested them another three times already. Arthur eagerly awaits the arrival of ‘the yummy magazine’ each month and takes pleasure in choosing what he’d like to make for us – although the shortlist is often 10 recipes! He now cooks an entire meal for the family once a week (with a little assistance) and it’s amazing to see the children proudly eat things they’d ordinarily turn up their noses at. That’s the difference it makes when they’ve made the recipes themselves. SUBJECT: KEEPING SOCIABLE FROM: CAROLINE WICKHAM-JONES What a great February issue. All this cooking keeps me sociable as I can’t eat…

chocolate is changing lives

THE PIONEER Mona Shah, founder and MD of chocolatier Harry Specters THE MISSION Chocolate was never part of the plan for Mona. But she and her husband Shaz have a son, Ash, who has autism – a developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. Mona explains, “We were worried about what Ash was going to do once he left full-time education – and speaking to other parents, they had the same worries.” Mona had been working in corporate governance when, in 2011, the family visited a chocolate shop in Scotland. Inspired by what she saw, Mona signed up for a course at the Chocolate Academy in Banbury, Oxfordshire. “While I was there, I realised that making chocolate is repetitive, structured work, as well as being therapeutic…
