I met Rachel Khoo at Cactus Studios, we cooked along with her, some recipes from her new book & TV show ‘Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook’ on the Good Food Channel, airs on Mondays at 9pm.
Rachel also studied at Central Saint Martins (Art & Design) after I had finished there. Then moved to Paris and started her little supper club in her home there. Now has a few TV shows and books. Lives just around the corner from me in Hackney but has kept her little Paris apartment.
She is gorgeous, open and lovely to talk to. We made parsley spatzle (similar to gnocchi but without potatoes) with roasted onions – really delicious, it will be something I will keep doing at home.
We also did smörgåstårta – a savoury Swedish bread cake with horseradish cream, beetroot and beetroot cured salmon and salmon roe with dill. Learnt a lot!
