Arrived back in England on Friday to find my 80-year old parents practicing their Italian, in readiness for our vacation in Sicily next week. Spent the weekend in Cambridge with my sister and her family; roller blading, zip lining, Segway-ing around a local forest and baking cakes. My polenta, grapefruit, orange, honey and marscapone cake- which I copied off the TV show The Great British Bake Off, was supposed to be ‘sugar free’, but turned out to have a whole jar of honey in it! I accidentally roasted the little cake in a ferocious and uncontrollable Aga oven – a posh version of an old British farm stove. But somehow it was still very edible (probably thanks to all the sugar). I feel blessed to have a family that always makes me feel so much at home.
