West London fruit buns

Could have done with some brown sugar on top, but the first time I’ve made them in a while. Will replace cherry cake as my afternoon sweet for the weeks and months to come.
More sweet breads to follow.

Pane casalingua

Just the way my Italian grandmother would have made it. If I had an Italian grandmother. Which I don’t. And assuming her local health food shop sold the same jar of malt extract.

Phonebook application posted to GitHub

Have taken the application I have been working on for my employer and fully sanitised it to remove any identifying references and posted it at

It’s the cleanest copy of the code that I have (including at work) and I will fork a copy to a works Git server and work on further developments from there.

Hopefully, someone might find some use from teh code.
