The GoPro HERO4 Session

The GoPro Hero4 Session is GoPro's smallest camera yet. Unlike the rectangular cameras which we've seen up until now, the Session is a 50% smaller, 35% lighter, and shaped like a cube. It's unbelievably tiny. Indeed, it may not offer many performance gains over its older brothers, but it's versatility arguably makes it a whole lot more fun. The Session is perfect for water sports, so we put it through its paces over the weekend sailing the Dart 18 in Cornwall...

The Ritz-Carlton Dubai

It's been a week since I arrived home from the glorious beaches of Dubai to a very dull and decidedly cooler UK.

Amaretti Baked Nectarines

This is an adaptation of one of my Mum's amazing dessert recipes. She always makes it with peaches and traditional Italian Amaretti biscuits - they're absolutely gorgeous. So I've decided to adapt it slightly to create a more guilt-free version, which is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. The filling is not quite as crunchy as my Mum's traditional biscuit recipe, but it still has that incredible almond flavour that pairs so well with the lovely baked fruit...
