Kefir is a grain that you ferment in either milk or water (that’s why people talk about milk kefir or water kefir). We regularly have a jar of milk kefir on the go in the gréatfood kitchen. It helps to maintain a healthy microbiome in your gut so that healthy bacteria can thrive. We swear by it because it gives you a flat wobbly tummy without having to diet. (Eat a few spoons of milk kefir after eating a pizza and the next day you won’t feel that your waist has tripled in size.)

Do you ever find that the onions you use in a raw recipe taste too strong: here’s a tip from Rick Bayless, the US chef who is an authority on Mexican and spicy cooking to mellow the flavour of raw onions so they don’t overpower a salsa or salad.
This recipe comes from Pierre Hermé and Dorie Greenspan with a small adaption (we’ve used an ounce less chocolate). Sea salt and chocolate are very fashionable in the biscuit or cookie world. The saltiness cuts through the rich chocolate brilliantly. Serve these after dinner with a coffee – just one or two sablé biscuits is enough for each person. You can make the dough in advance, cover it tightly in a few layers of cling film and store it in the fridge for a few days or freeze it, ready to slice and bake when you are ready. You can buy the Dorie Greenspan app from ITunes.
