On the evening I had the pleasure to meet some of my favorite Instagram, some of the lovely people from Jamie Oliver’s teams and the man itself, Jamie Oliver, who joined us at the dinner table. Later that night Jamie posted a group photo on his which was pretty awesome! The table was beautifully set for our dinner at Jamie Oliver’s office in north London. The location was great: we were inside a warehouse with a test kitchen and incredible food props, that I would have gladly liked to borrow for my home! Of course Jamie’s food team had styled all the food and drinks beautifully, so I was in my happy place snapping all of that with my phone and my DLSR camera!
I often eat salads for dinner, it’s good to have a light meal in the evening especially since I often eat quite late around 9pm. I eat out a lot, so whenever I have a night off to spend at home I really crave simple, fresh food. But I am also a bit lazy with my cooking and always make the same dishes over and over…so these salad recipes by Jamie Oliver are a great source of inspiration!
One of my favourites is the Superfood Salad with quinoa, avocado, feta and roasted sweet potato. I tried to re-create it at home last week and it worked out really well! It doesn’t take long to prep, as you just need to bake the potatoes, lightly steam the broccoli and cook the quinoa. All other ingredients are fresh and simply tossed together with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lime.
