We hope this Recipe Page will inspire you to create wonderful dishes using fresh, tasty and interesting ingredients and in many cases, make good use of gluts in home-grown produce. There is nothing better than home-grown food - it's cheaper, it's tastier, and it's amazingly satisfying eating something you've grown from seed or a tiny plant.   Oh, and there's some indulgent desserts and treats in here containing zero veggies too! 

Whether you have a vegetable plot, an allotment or some pots on a balcony, enjoy growing, harvesting and cooking!

Chocolate and Baileys Cream Pots
Undeniably rich and indulgent, this dessert is perfect served in a shot glass, perhaps alongside one filled with Lemon Cream (recipe to follow!).

Makes 6 large desserts or 12 small ones.


140g dark chocolate
140ml whipping cream
5 tbs Baileys or Irish Cream Liqueur
250g Mascarpone cheese
140g glucose syrup
Chocolate shavings, to decorate


Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water.
Once smooth, add the glucose syrup and stir.
In a separate bowl, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks.
Stir in the Baileys and Mascarpone cheese.
Add a tablespoon of the cream mixture to the melted chocolate.
Then combine the remainder of the cream mix with the chocolate mix and stir until thoroughly combined.
Transfer to individual serving dishes and chill.

I like to serve it in shot glasses, and is particularly lovely served with a shot glass filled with lemon cream along with a shortbread finger.
