Lianne Marie Cooks with Tea!

TIMG_0135his month we’re all about getting creative, and guest blogger Lianne Marie certainly knows all about that! From 2011 she has run the blog Everything Goes With Toast, making surprising meals out of things anyone might have in their fridge, and giving classic recipes a modern twist.

She believes in cooking to taste, using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients rather than forced or artificially ripened produce or processed foods, and believe that if you don’t like something then chances are it just hasn’t been prepared well. You can scroll through all her wonderful recipes by selecting a specific ingredient, be that capers or champagne, Wendsleydale or walnuts.

Below are some recipes magicked up by Lianne, featuring our fuso tea tents range!
