Mostly Lovin’: Socca Pancakes


Nicoise Chickpea Pancakes

I finally got round to making Nina Parker’s Socca Pancakes. These gram or chickpea flour pancakes are super quick to whip up, incredibly filling and extremely versatile.

Nice has welcomed immigrants of Algerian and Tunisian descent over the years which I suspect may be the birthplace of this dish.

I snaffled mine with a sunnyside-up egg, smoked salmon and you guessed it…avocado. Find recipe and cooking instructions here and at“Millie and Nina’s Fast Food Series”. Délicieux!

Le Weekend

“Party On”!

What better way to spend a rainy weekend than with one’s nose in a good cook book. I loved Chef Nina Parker’s first book, “Nina St Tropez” so thought it was high time I graduated to her second offering – “Nina, Capri, Recipes from Italy’s Amalfi Coast”.

I am very loosely really considering undertaking a 500 calorie fast two days a week, madness I know but I have heard great things about the 5:2 Diet but before I commit it would be foolish not to undertake all necessary research don’t you think?
