“January is all about simple pleasures”

A huge delicious. welcome to food writer Georgina Hayden who, every month, will be bringing enticing recipes from her kitchen table to yours. To kick things of she’s cooking hearty but wholesome dishes suited to the irst few weeks of the year – food that feeds body, heart and soul


After the chaos and extravagance of Christmas, January feels like a breath of fresh, albeit frosty, air – a much-needed excuse to stay home and retreat from things a little. It might not be the most exciting month of the year for fresh produce but that means I rely on my storecupboard that bit more, which is no bad thing. I love a new year cupboard clear-out, and in turn it means I get to feast on homely, comforting meals, unfussy one-pot wonders that are the edible equivalent of curling up on the sofa with a blanket.

I’ve learned never to start a diet in January. It’s far too cold to be eating salad. Even so, I do find I crave simpler, less rich dishes like the ones I’m sharing with you here. Soups, stews… Dishes I can cook one day, knowing any leftovers will taste even better the next day. The congee is one of my go-to recipes when the weather gets colder. It’s hearty, wholesome and packed with flavour. December, you were fun, but staying in and cooking nourishing, soulful meals is a welcome antidote.
