  • Courgette, pistachio and yoghurt loaf with a lemon honey glaze 4 days ago Ladles of goodness, with a nod to a lemon drizzle, this green pistachio-flecked, spelt and yoghurt loaf is light, moist, moreish and perfect with a cup of tea. And it’s another idea for using courgettes (enough said).  I’m as susceptible as the next woman for something that’s called bread...
  • How to find the best Instagram course for you 2 weeks ago “Which social platform do you turn to first in the morning?”. I was asked this question on an interview for a podcast recently. I didn’t pause for thought. “Instagram!” It’s the very first thing I do as I open my eyes after punching the alarm button off. Do you relate to this? This...
  • National Trust and modern art: Andrew Logan at Buckland Abbey 3 weeks ago We scuttled out of the Dartmoor rain into the barn, leaving the dark skies for a brilliant scene inside. This simple, solid farm building has remained unchanged since it was constructed in around 1278 and has the grace of a cathedral. A field of golden, quivering, shimmering blades of wheat reached...
  • Belle Epoque jaunts: old-fashioned boating on Lac Leman 4 weeks ago I’ll admit my spirits sank just a little when a boat ride on Lac Léman was suggested. Travel on moving water has always been a bit of a (stomach-churning) challenge. Just ask my family – a certain mackerel fishing voyage has entered the annals of holiday history, to great merriment (from...
  • Spicy sweet potato, tomato and turmeric soup {+ some photo tips} 1 month ago There’s a dash through the gate into the porch through torrential rain by the person from Riverford at 7am. The empty carton is replaced with a new one abundant with brown paper parcels and intriguing sprigs of green. A neighbour drops in a little later with a clutch of freshly laid eggs. The...

A beautifully photographed and always-thoughtful discussion of life and food in Dubai -- and, sometimes, in Britain.

Her quality of writing, level of research and thought put into each article, unassuming and personal voice, and extreme passion for quality food and especially ingredients - all of those make her stand apart from the rest of the local blogosphere. When I read her blog, I often feel like she's thrown open the door to her home and invited me in. That level of personal connection with a reader is rare, and for that, I truly think she deserves to win.

Sally Prosser's site My Custard Pie brings together the best in ExPat blogging since it combines and integrates both local (Dubai and United Emirates Region) and international gourmet news, workshops, reviews, local fairs and produce and much much more. Having lived in Dubai for 12 years - Sally knows expat family life in and out and her readers and the region profit from it. Her posts are fun, her photographs are wonderful and her regional suggestions a good recoomendation for the visitors. She has also done much to assist and unite food bloggers throughout the region with her work on Fooderati Arabia for which ishe s also to be congratulated. She is an inspiration to me!
