  1. Hi Helen
    Where can I find your ‘Cheese Puff’ recipe from this mornings Home & Garden show (Sat 23rd Sept)? I’ve looked everywhere but to no avail… it the recipe on your Foodlovers page?

    • HI Andrea, they are called Brazilian cheese puffs. I have started to add finely chopped red onion which is a lovely addition.
      let me know if you can’t find the recipe but if you search Brazilian Cheese Puffs then you will find them.

  2. I flavour mine with a pinch of garlic and herb salt and a pinch of cajun, and chopped up chives and lemon thyme if available. EMY
