Yesterday, I announced on Instagram that my next post would be my gyoza recipe. It was an unthinking act that has caused me much distress hence. Why? Because today is National Ravioli Day (somewhere, I think the US). How could I be so remiss in promoting one dumpling on another’s most special day of days?

The other week, on a miserably wet Sunday in London, I got the urge to make a custard tart. It was probably something to do with it being Australia Day. Custard tarts always remind me of home. My grandfather was a baker and, according to my mum, people used to travel from miles around for his pastries. I like to think baking is in my blood.
