I’m Charlotte, and I live in Edinburgh. I like teatime, picnics and extravagant breakfasts. The balloon whisk is my favourite kitchen tool. One of the greatest achievements in my cooking life has been keeping the above basil plant alive on my windowsill for almost a year. I don’t care how lame that makes me sound. I went on holiday for two weeks and when I came back I nursed back from the brink of death. We have history. Which is how it should be, with food.
