Unexpected sunshine makes everyone happy, even the grumpiest of us. It makes us feel positive and ready to tackle those long put-off tasks like the garden, finishing off the decorating and swapping energy supplier. Ok swapping energy supplier was a total lie but you get my thinking. We've been busy making Summer holiday plans, searching for new places to camp and places to visit in London. Some suggestions might happen…
Weekends are for relaxing, spending time with family and friends, perhaps doing the odd job on the house/garden but mostly for taking a pause. That pause can be over good food. And that good food can be anything from fancy to simple as long as it's something you like, something that makes you feel special. (more…)
With the festivities behind us and ready to embrace the long run up to summer, I'm ready for something new, something fresh and exciting. I start announcing "let's have everyone round and cook something different" which is usually met with a slow okay from my family. Tripod cooking. Then that crazy plan doesn't seem so silly now, does it? (more…)
Sadly summertime is leaving us and what a fabulous summer it has been; filled with fun times of long lazy afternoons at the beach hut that turned into barbecue suppers. We maxed out our days with sea swims, messing about on the boat and retreating into the shade of the hut to eat easy yet delicious foods. (more…)
We’re planning a trip to Barcelona, a quick getaway, just the two of us for our wedding anniversary. I’ve always wanted to go. My Husband has been many times with work and would often tell me about great markets and restaurants that he had found and that we really should go. So after remembering how he spoke of all the delicious foods he ate that was it; destination booked. (more…)
My name is Elinor Hill, aka "Beach Hut Cook". I am lucky enough to live by the sea, and I spend a ridiculous amount of time there in our beach hut. I love cooking simple and tasty food for my family, often down the hut or carefully transported to it. There is nothing better than a feast by the sea with the odd cocktail or two thrown in. For me: it’s as good as it gets.
