WELL...finally, our lovely Gina of The Passionate Pantry, formerly of Team Tenina, has got her ducks in a row and launched her amazing blog. We just know she is going to have a huge following in no time flat, so please go and support her if you don’t already. Gina is amazing. She worked with us for about 12 months and in that time I learnt so much from her, least of not which was precision and organisation in all things. Gina was my pocket rocket at classes and she is also now running her own classes. I sorely miss her, but life goes on and she is bound for great things. In the meantime she has provided us with this beautiful recipe....
You will find a lot of Gina’s other recipes on here and she will be a regular contributor. We love that!! Thanks Gina, Happy New Blog and all the best, with lots of love from all of us...
